With the weekend here I thought I might just mention a few music apps that you may find handy if you are a BlackBerry user.

Now we all know that media was never the strong point on a BlackBerry before BlackBerry 6 but since the OS update things have improved immensely.

There are a great selection of music apps within App World from podcasts, to radio, to creating music on a BlackBerry. Have a look at the few I have selected after the break or head on over to App World from your BlackBerry and see what you fancy.
