Last week, I showed you the top 10 free downloaded BlackBerry Apps, per BlackBerry App World. Today, I wanted to revisit the top 10 and explore a few of the newly listed Apps in the top 10. To download these apps, you must first install BlackBerry App World onto your BlackBerry. The top downloaded Apps are as of August 22nd. I’ve included both the description and ratings from BlackBerry App World.
To download the Apps below, here’s what you need to do. Visit BlackBerry App World from your PC and enter your e-mail address to have the download link e-mailed to you or visit www.blackberry.com/appworld/download from your BlackBerry Browser. Once you download BlackBerry App World, you’ll have the ability to download Free or Pay Apps from their collection of 1300+ BlackBerry Apps.

From last week’s listing, there are 5 new top 10 Apps. Pandora jumped up to number 1 and I personally like this top 10 much better than last weeks. I use Pandora, BlackBerry App World, BigTinCan BuzzMe, Ka-Glom, VLingo, YouMail Visual VoiceMail and QuickPull Lite and they are definitely among the best of the best. Do you have any favorites that you feel should be included in the top 1o?
