DOWNLOAD: Free software for your Verizon Motorola Q or Cingular Samsung Blackjack

I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of people that own Motorola Q’s or Samsung Blackjacks but have installed virtually nothing on them outside of email, calendar and contacts.  I think this is either because they don’t really know about what’s available or they don’t want to pay for any new software unless they know it’ll work on their device.  (Probably more the former than the later) 

So to get everyone started, here’s a list of completely free yet great software for your Windows Mobile-based Samsung Blackjack or Motorola Q that I’ve collected over the last year or so.  All software is downloaded and installed from your desktop PC while your device is connected unless otherwise specified.

Connected Bits Weather (FREE)

http://bp0.blogger.com/_T22XDB8f1RE/RcuEPBw3CKI/AAAAAAAAACs/8oIUcnIZvMc/s320/weather.jpg

You can view the current weather info, the forecast for the entire week, and you can drill down on a forecasted day to view additional details. For the BlackJack you should pick up the Smartphone WM5 – Beta 1 CAB file.  To use the application you simply need to select a city out of a list of about 50+, or you can enter any valid US zip code. The application remembers your selection the next time you fire the program up, so only if you want to view the weather in another city will you have to select a city/zip again.
