Blackberry apps for music and movies

Your BlackBerry can be a lifesaver if you want to know the name of this song to play in the bar or if you want to find the time for the next presentation of this new blockbuster. These apps can also bring the radio directly to your BlackBerry – and recommend songs to listen to you. Pandora for BlackBerry Free for 40 hours of songs / month- $ 0.99 / month for an unlimited number of songs Think of Pandora for BlackBerry as your personal electronic disc jockey that starts with a few songs or the artists you love, and then look for and find music that is some similar attributes or actions. You get to create and tweak your own “” stations. You are allowed up to 100 channels, and you can choose only one to play, turn through them all, or ask the computer to choose pleasant songs at random.

Your BlackBerry displays an image of the cover of the album or CD. And if somehow Pandora throws a swine among the pearls, you can remove it from the mix with a click. The more comments you provide, the better the electronic DJ gets to understand your ear. Shazam Free for Basic Version- $ 4.99 for Encore Version Shazam is a musicologist in your pocket. Turn it on, aim your BlackBerry towards the speakers of your stereo, the background music in a bar, or the fuzzy sound in an elevator, and give it a few seconds to listen and then think. Like magic, there, on the screen of your BlackBerry – almost without fail – you see the name of the song, the artist of the scene, and the album on which it was released. Want more? How about a biography of the artist, a record of recorded songs, and access to YouTube and other videos about the singer.

And, if you have the Encore version, you can even download a Tag chart that tells you what the rest of the world, or at least those using Shazam, are currently tagging and grooving at. For some artists and songs – depending on copyright – you may be able to download the lyrics. And you can also get a list of other artists and albums that contain a particular song – by the composer or covers by others. Nobex Radio Companion Free for $ 3.99 / month of the base for the subscription version Nobex Radio Companion uses your BlackBerry to connect to the Web and from there tap into all of a stream of perhaps 5,000 radio stations from more than 80 countries around the world.

The app comes with some sampling stations, but the real power comes when you choose to add your own sound spectrum. You can see the full list, or you can ask for a display by genre: rock, country, talk radio, oldies, and many other categories. You can also visit the Nobex website on a computer to see a map of available stations. Flixster Free The Flixster app offers a PGP Blackberry movie version of the Flixster website ads. You can choose a movie and know where it is playing, or you can ask to see what is happening in theaters near you. There are just about every bell and whistle a movie lover might want: descriptions of new movies, video trailers, photos, a cast list, and a list of theaters.

You can check which movies are box office, and you can read snippets of short comments by professional critics or venture into the world of social networking and know what your other Flixster viewers think. Moviefone Free The BlackBerry Moviefone version includes the basic elements: movie schedules, trailers, and schedules what is played in theaters near a zip code you enter. You can also see the movie poster. One feature is that it does not match by many other services: the ability to order and pay for tickets online to some participating cinemas.
