Disclosure: I am participating in the Verizon Wireless Ambassadors program and have been provided with a wireless device and three months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
My biggest fear about switching over to a Blackberry was losing all my apps. And, yes– there are definitely far less apps available in the Blackberry Store. I am missing favorites that I previously used on a daily basis.
However, the Blackberry Store is growing, and I have found some awesome apps to enjoy. It’s all about being open minded and really taking time to look into new options.
As far as music goes, I have not decided on an app that I am completely ready to switch to just yet. However, I have tried out a few and they all have their perks.
