Application In General

Is it just me or is there not that many Apps for the Blackberry? I dont know if I am just comparing a lot to the Iphone, but it seems like some generally AWESOME apps that Iphone has, the Blackberry lacks in a lot of them that are really easy, but a great feature! Please let me know if I am doing something wrong or not looking at the right places.

I am updating my phone right now and hopefully will be getting a whole new group of apps, but I am not positive on this.

Thanks Justin

Re: Application In General

About the awesomeness of iPhone applications : let's face it : iPhone applications are prettier. and it's easy to know why : it's because developers do not have the choice ! All iPhone applications bear the same iPhone User Interface appearance.

On WM and BlackBerry and Android, developers have the choice, and since they are not artists it can be ugly (but functionnal).
