BerryStore - an App Store for BlackBerry

BerryStore - an App Store for BlackBerry
BerryStore has launched an app store for BlackBerry applications which - unlike the upcoming official BlackBerry App Center - works on all BlackBerries, across operators, and browses and installs applications via a program (rather than browser) interface.

We tried the BerryStore beta on our Blackberry Bold and managed to successfully install quite a few programs without issue. The interface is reminiscent to the iPhone's App Store "Categories" view (see images below), which is acceptable for the moment because of the relatively limited number of applications (45) available. However, BerryStore would be well advised to include other listing methods as they expand.

Such application loaders (in-phone) have recently become popular after the success of the iPhone App Store. Microsoft is reportedly preparing a similar application for Windows Mobile 7, and Google's Android platform has the Market.
