1. IM+ All-In-One Messenger
Whether you're using AIM, Yahoo, MSN Messenger, ICQ, Jabber or Google Talk you'll be just fine with IM+ All-In-One Messenger. Not only can users send messages to their favorite IM program they can also add new friends, delete friends, leave and check away messages and even send and receive files just as they would with their PC versions of Instant messaging programs. The newest version of IM+ also features a very cool feature called "IM Push" which sends their messages directly to their email account allowing battery life to be saved. IM+ is by far the best mobile app on the market and the Blackberry version is no exception.
Here's a screenshot, even the layout looks great!

If you want to customize your BlackBerry screens why not try an iPhone'esque look and feel. iBerry allows users to add any application they choose to the device's main screen for quick launch capabilities. As the name would suggest those applications then show up with the look of an iPhone launch screen. The premise is simple but what makes this app great is the ease of use that comes with it, simply choose an app and use the quick add screen to create your new icon. We love this app because its easy to use, oh yeah and because it only cost 6 bucks.
