Blackberry is expanding its range of mobile devices with the introduction of several new phones, including the excellent Blackberry Bold 9790. One of the attractions of this new model is the large number of applications that are currently available on Blackberry App World. We previously took a look at the best free apps for the Bold 9900, so now we explore some great options for the Bold 9790.
The modern mobile phone is the perfect tool for enjoying a variety of multimedia materials and the new Blackberry Bold 9790 is no exception. One application that offers users great audio playback features is the excellent BBM Music. This free software allows users to download up to 50 tracks per month that can be added to playlists or enjoyed when the user is offline. The following month, the user has the opportunity to exchange up to 25 of these tracks for new material. This feature gives users the opportunity to discover new music by allowing them to constantly update their library. 50 songs might not sound like a lot, but if you have friends who use the service, you get access to their collection. A BBM Music user with 6 friends using the service can potentially enjoy a collection of 300 tracks.
If you prefer to use your phone for photos rather than music, the Photo Studio application allows for simple editing of photos captured on the device. This software allows users to adjust areas such as brightness, hue, and saturation in their snapshots. There are also various filters to help give your photos a different look. An example of this is the Sepia setting which helps to achieve a very vintage look. Once the appearance of the image has been modified, users have the option to share their media directly with social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Photo Studio really enhances photos and should be a useful tool for anyone who likes to use their 9790 for photographic purposes.
The Blackberry Bold 9790 includes the excellent Blackberry Messenger service that allows users to send messages to other Blackberry users for a minimal cost. If you are looking for a similar service to send messages to users on different platforms like iOS and Android, WhatsApp is the app for you. When you use the software for the first time, you simply enter your phone number and the application automatically searches your contact list to find other friends who are using this service. Whatsapp uses data instead of assigned text mappings, so the service is incredibly cheap, and if you are connected to a WiFi network, the messages are free. Not only can text messages be sent and received with this software, users can attach photos and video files to their messages.
The Blackberry Bold 9790 is a great new device from RIM and there is a great selection of apps available to help you get the most out of your phone. For people who like to use the multimedia features of phones, downloads like BBM Music and Photo Studio are excellent. If you want to stay in touch with family and friends by messaging, WhatsApp can really help you cut down on the number of texts you need as part of your monthly contract.
