So Sorry- Want a FREE App?

RIM says sorry in the form of Apps

 “Apps” are, without a doubt, the greatest thing to happen to this world since sliced bread! They are the sole reason that nearly everyone has a smart phone in their hands these days! From checking Facebook to playing words with friends, mobile devices are a great way to pass the time and stay connected!

When the IPhone 4S was released customers in US, Europe, Middle East, and India experienced some of their services being shut off for their BlackBerrys.  I’m sure many people were angry. For one they didn’t have the new cool IPhone and two their current phone wasn’t working.   In an effort to make up for their poor service and to do some damage control Rim decided to offer free apps to their customers.
These FREE APPS include: Pro
iSpeech Translator Pro
Drive Enterprise
Nobex Radio Premium
Shazam Encore
Vlingo Plus: Virtual Assistant
The Sims 3
Texas Hold’em Poker 2
Bubble Bash 2
Photo Editor Ultimate

I don’t exactly see how getting a free app would make up for the lack of cell phone service, but RIMS gets an A for effort. After all, everyone loves getting something for free.

Words with friends, is without a doubt, one of the most popular Apps on smart phones.  People literally spend hours competing against one and other in hopes of beating out their opponent with their clever words.  I thought this game would be boring, but after one game I was HOOKED! If you haven’t played it, I dare you! You WILL become addicted too!


  1. I love my smart phone and the fun apps on it. It has almost become a security blanket...whenever I am waiting somewhere and in need of something to do I can always play a game, check the news or catch up on emails.

  2. I agree with you Brynnly! I love my smart phone and its always in one of my hands! I can't get enough of the apps and the different uses (good & bad) i get from them. Its hard to stay focused during 3 hours history lectures when I am constantly checking Facebook! haha! Just a few things some professors don't understand!
