CRUNCHSMS BlackBerry handsets may be awesome for text addicts, but their default SMS application tends to be very much on the vanilla side, laden with text and looking rather dull. If you are in the mood to jazz up your texting experience, download crunchSMS. It is a totally free application that comes with a number of handy features like the option to view SMS conversations in bubble chat form, add contact pictures, the ability to insert contact details when forwarding contacts to someone else, add smileys and signatures, and even add snippets (bits of already written text) to a message. It may not sound like a lot, but take our advice - SMSing will be far more entertaining than it was before. Works with: BlackBerry devices like the Bold 2 and the 8520 Get it from: BlackBerry App World.

SMS BACKUP Deleting text messages regularly - or not at all - can be a problem for those who like to keep track of what they had written and to whom. Unfortunately, the more texts one stores, the slower one's device tends to get. Of course, you can back them up to a computer, but that can be tedious. Android users, however, have it easy. All they need is to grab this very handy app and it will automatically save all your text messages - in conversation format - in a folder in your Gmail account. So you can delete away merrily on your handset and simply log in to Gmail to check old messages when you feel like it. Now, that's convenience. Oh, and did we mention that it's free? Works with: Android phones such as the Motorola Milestone and the Samsung Galaxy S Get it from: Android Market.

HEY! WHERE ARE YOU? Seldom do you find an app that's as appropriately named. Hey! Where Are You? (HeyWAY for short) is a software that is designed to let you know where your friends are. You can send alerts with your location to people following you, or just ask friends where they are (that's how the app got its name). The Pro version of the software even lets you add a message to your location if you wish. Unlike in other services that send out your location automatically, here your co-ordinates are sent only when you authorise it, keeping you in firm control. Also, it supports push notification, so you can get an alert about someone's location without any user intervention. Works with: iPhone and iPod touch Get it from: Apple App Store
