Create your own grouping of photos and upload it to this app and all of a sudden you can take your memories with you everywhere you go.
Blackberry App #2: SMS2Desk – Text to Email – This Blackberry app lets you receive and send SMS right from your computer.

SMS2Desk brings all your messages right to your computer allowing you to have the same capabilities that you would have when an email is sent to your desk.
Blackberry App #3: Happy Family Shared Grocery Lists – This Blackberry app is the best shopping list organizational tool out there. The beauty of this app is that it syncs wirelessly with the other people in your household so your husband will will have the same list on his device. You both can check off and add items as you go from any device or computer.

Then Syncamatic is an absolute must for you. It’s the perfect solution for Outlook users who are not on a Business Enterprise Server. It syncs all your calendar appointments, task lists and memos automatically!
Blackberry App #5: Spark Recipes – A cookbook on the go that houses more than then 2,000,000 recipes. I love this app because you can pull it up at the grocery store and buy everything you need. No more transposing to separate lists or forgetting ingredients. It also keeps you trying new and easy recipes. No more wondering about what to have for dinner.
Blackberry App #6: DriveSafely – Being safe while we drive is a must, not only for our safety but also for the safety of our children and others on the road. With laws being passed that require us to be hands free, this Blackberry app is perfect. It will recite texts, emails and calls that we receive.
