BlackBerry 7 Compatible Apps: 10 Free Downloads

Looking for apps that are compatible with RIM's new BlackBerry 7 OS? CIO.com's Al Sacco spotlights 10 must-haves including apps for social networking, navigation, entertainment and a cool augmented reality browser.

RIM's latest batch of BlackBerry smartphones, the first to run the new BlackBerry 7 OS, is currently being released across the globe. My inbox is already full of inquiries from readers seeking recommendations on BlackBerry-7-compatible applications. Unfortunately, not all of my favorite apps will run smoothly on RIM's new OS 7—Dropbox, Pandora, Kindle and MLB At Bat don't, to name just a few. But there are still plenty of quality downloads to be had.


(Note: You must employ BlackBerry App World with a valid BlackBerry ID to download many of the apps spotlighted in this post. Find more information on BlackBerry ID on RIM's Website.)


And thanks, Tony, for the idea for this post.
