Next up is an application called StockView and as you can guess it displays NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) and NASDAQ quotes. There are loads of stock applications for the Blackberry but most of them are either charging $29.99 for the application or a monthly fee. This application is totally free (at least for now). The site lists it as a trial but it will work indefinitely.

Now how about having the power of Directory Assistance without having to make a phone call? The application is called Beyond411 and can be downloaded from here.

I first saw this on the iPhone and it looked great. Beyond411 is  a service for information that goes one step beyond basic 411 information. It allows you to drill down and find what you are looking for.  You set your location so it returns local stuff and it goes on to provide, in addition to the directory searching on Yellow Pages, support for maps, driving directions and white pages.

Consider this a traveler’s best friend or assistant. It will hold your information down so you don’t lose or misplace it. You can go Gold (paid) to have flight alerts and status automatically updated on the go. All in all, after using this application, I don’t know how to travel without it.

    Thanks for your comment Andrew but I work in a shop with 300+ blackberry users and this is what they are looking for to help them be more productive. Thank you for the suggestions and links but really the worst picks??

    For business users they are more like near essential applications. Well except for the Kindle one as they all have Kindles or Nooks.

    Geez, probably the worst picks for free software, unless your an old stodgy business man. Blackberry's have lots of fresh, fun, and extremely more useful freeware (Foursquare, where, urbanspoon, ubertwitter, smrtguard, berryweather, IM+, google voice application, ect ). Besides games, if you can find it on an iphone, you can find it for BlackBerry too. Of course, I'll plug my site, but look into and also.
