Yeah I think 99% of the Blackberry owners I know don't pay for it, and it is supplied by work. But why not just get your own proper smartphone as well... ?

Because mMy work allows me to use my work phone for personal use, why would I bother to carry a 2nd phone and pay for my own plan ?

Exactly. Could you make a poll asking how many people with Blackberry's would buy the App? I for one would and I'm sure mostly all the regulars with Berry's would as well. I wouldn't even think about spending $0.99 for it.

So you can do stuff with it?

I used Windows Mobile for many years before switching to Android. Eventually, I was tired of thinking "I wish they'd make a Windows Mobile version of that app" or "I wish the Windows Mobile version of that app didn't suck". I assume that's what most Blackberry users go through as well.

Ah fuck, of course I'd hit the option to pay for the IPHONE app.

I dunno, it does enough for my needs. Formula1.com has a blackberry app, so that makes me pretty happy

That is exactly what made me switch from a Curve to a Nexus S this month, the selection of apps and integration of search into most apps is so much better.

I wouldn't mind it be free with ads. I'm used to seeing ads on free apps anyway

Quoting function is fucked with the app. Inserts a colon between username and post ID rather than the semi-colon.

I am one of the 4 ahaha

The app is great so far....its fast and works well

only issues that I notice:

1) when quoting the post number is visible in bold ie. Originally Posted by sonick:7491975

2) Subforms have format errors as well ie. <br><B><fontcolor="red"> is visible in a lot of the areas
3) will there be areas to fail or thank?
4) images like and show up as troll and fullofwin

I gave 5 stars as I am happy with my 99 cent purchase
