On my BlackBerry I have a few personal favourite applications and games, ones to be productive and ones to pass the time. In a recent shopping trip to ShopTheBerryFix.com I stumbled across Fierce Towers a defence strategy game for your BlackBerry. Fierce Towers offers you a challenging game of defending your base by placing towers in locations hoping you have enough power to take down the opposing bots.
I love this game so much we’re going to help our readers discover Fierce Towers by giving away 10 copies from ShoptheBerryFix.com. To enter the contest leave a comment on this post, anything counts just don’t post double comments. Then on January 23rd at 11:59 PST the contest will close and a winner will be selected.
But in the meantime hit up the break for more of the review and a few more photos.
**Game works with BlackBerry Torch, Storm1 and Storm2, 89xx, 96xx, 97xx.

- Major UI Changes:
- Toolbar to allow easier access to BlackBerry commands
- Battery and signal strength for BlackBerry is displayed on PC
- Added support to change alert UI theme by placing custom display.xslt in Application Data\MLHSoftware\Blurts\theme folder
- Minor tweaks to alert UI
- Improved contacts download
- Improved screen capture
- Added Windows Hot Key support for Read Clipboard, Send Clipboard.
- Added copy text support to alerts and dialogs
And a whole lot more that can be found on their website. With the newest version just hitting ShopTheBerryFix.com we teamed up with Blurts to giveaway 25 copies of their application. This is a first come first server by entering the coupon code “BLURTTBF” in ShopTheBerryFix.com to get your copy.

First I want to apologize for all the confusion with the Torch contest. We had contacted winner #1, with no reply. We contacted winner #2, with no reply and finally we have contacted winner #3!!…….and we have a reply. I’m actually quite shocked that two winners gave up this awesome prize and it’s probably as simple as making sure you add sitesupport at TheBerryFix.com to your safe email adress. So as not to drag this on anymore I would like to congratulate the winner of a brand new BlackBerry Torch to…….

iSpeech has been working closely with TheBerryFix.com to bring our readers the best in Text-to-Speech for BlackBerry. We have reviewed their application extensively which can be found “here“. So when they found out we were celebrating our very first Birthday the team wanted to help thank our readers by offering up ten pro copies of DriveSafe.ly. DriveSafe.LY reads out your text messages and emails in real time allowing you to keep your eyes on the road, which is very important!! Good luck to everyone and hopefully you find the app as useful as I.
