Five more Must-Have BlackBerry Apps

If you are a Blackberry user, here are five more awesome apps you may want to check out on top of the other five I covered last month.

1. WordPress: The BlackBerry WordPress app offers most of what you’d expect in the web version, allowing you to add posts, manage content, and moderate comments.

Cost: Free

2. Skype: The App is a free, effective, and enjoyable way to interact with partners and clients alike. The Skype BlackBerry app gives users much of the functionality of the desktop version, allowing them to make Skype-to-Skype calls, chat through a wireless connection, and access to their contact list.

The Skype BlackBerry app is available exclusively for Verizon phones. For non-Verizon BlackBerry users, check out iSkoot.

Cost: Free (plus Skype call rates, as applicable)

3. Google Mobile Apps: The App includes versions of Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Reader and more. The apps allow you to receive, edit, and send e-mails and docs, catch up on your subscribed blogs, and make sure you don’t miss any meetings.

Cost: Free

4. Do Not Disturb: The  app allows you to automatically filter your calls — screening out some numbers while letting others through — without turning off or silencing your phone.

Cost: $3.99

5. IM+: The App is an all-in-one instant messaging system that integrates AIM/iChat, MSN/Windows Live, Yahoo, ICQ, Jabber, Google Talk, MySpace, Skype and Facebook chats into one BlackBerry app. With this tool, you can keep up with business partners and stay connected with clients, no matter what system they use.

Cost: $39.99
