After much waiting, RIM has finally released an update to Blackberry Desktop Manager for the Mac. There are no visible changes to DM in this update. The update is mainly to fix some issues that some users were having with itunes music and data syncing. Hopefully RIM will continue to invest resources in Mac development, so that Mac users will be able to do more with their Blackberry Smartphones on their Apple computers.

Up until about a week ago I’ve been using the normal Flag option in the BlackBerry email application, which is excellent but its only for Emails no phone calls or text messages. Then I stumbled across LaterDude Pro for BlackBerry, its pretty much an all-in one reminder app that you use for sms, email, phone calles and if your like me your find this quite handy. LaterDude runs for $2.95 and works on OS 4.2 and up, the app is available in TheBerryFix.com app store.

RIM’s official Twitter client, Twitter For Blackberry, will be made available as a public beta tonight at 9pm EST.

Check out TheBerryFix.com’s previous articles and reviews on T4BB below.

One of the biggest complaints about themes and applications on BlackBerry are the memory leaks, sometimes there are none and while other times it is insane on how bad the app or theme is for leaks. Now while this application cant fix the memory leak issue, its there to make it less of a surprise and prevents freezes and slow downs. MeterBerry will continue to monitor your BlackBerrys memory and battery levels and let you know when they are getting a little low. One of the cool features is than when your memory drops below a certain thresh hold you can actually have the app reboot your BlackBerry for you, eliminating the freezes and OS slowdowns.
MeterBerry is the current deal of the day in theBerryFix.com app store, it’s on sale for $1.97 down from $3.95. That’s a great deal for what I think is a must have application. MeterBerry deal of the day is for the 9700 but this application is available for Curve 8520/30, Storm, Storm2, Tour running OS 4.7 or higher.
