Screenshot is simple to use since you can assign a key to act as your own personal shutter switch to capture whatever is on your screen. Although the iPhone screenshot tip was free and came as a built in feature for the iPhone, the app is not as wallet friendly as free: it comes in at $3.
You know the bright light that flashes on the back of your BlackBerry Bold, Curve, or Tour whenever you take a photo or video footage? Well this light can actually be used for more than just a camera flash — it can be used as a flashlight thanks to this BlackBerry App!The Flashlight One Touch uses your phone's video camera (without the recording turned on) and the light on the back of your phone to provide you with a handy flashlight. Once you download the app — which you can take for a trial run for free, or pay $3 for the full version — just open your video camera, click on the menu button and choose options. Then set "Video Light" to on and your light will always work when you open the video camera. To turn off the flashlight, just hit the back (or escape) key.
Also, turn off the Auto-Dim setting (in options). . . this does not affect your back light from going out.

We've all been there — meetings, during work, dinner dates — you know, those times when you can't always answer your phone and you need to silence a call immediately? With the Call You Back App for the BlackBerry, you can ignore your calls and it will send a text message to the person calling to let them know that you're at work, sleeping, watching a movie, etc.
It's completely free and you can add any custom SMS that will be sent to the caller whenever you're busy.
You're probably wondering if you read the title correct — yes, it does say BlackBerry! If I'm not talking about iPhone apps to use while traveling, to take on road trips with kids, ones to use for entertaining guests, then I'm talking about iPhone radio apps and handy camera apps. Needless to say, it's usually all about the iPhone. But not today my friends, today I'm showing my beloved BlackBerry some love with these essential and handy (not to mention, free!) apps.
