QuickPull v2

Price: Free

This one sounds simple, but it's quite convenient and can save you a lot of aggravation. Basically, it allows you to set a time to do a soft re-boot of your handheld, or do it yourself on demand. Why do this? Well, if you’re like me, the only time you turn-off or reboot your handheld is if it crashes. Eventually, performance starts to suffer. A reboot can make a major performance difference, but it’s a pain and, with the BlackBerry, quite slow. With this app, I set the reboot to happen while I’m sleeping, and I wake up in the morning to a speedier device.
