Congrats go out to the Regional Finalists. I know there’s several that are amazing that aren’t listed but of the winners, I love Poynt, Vayyoo is pretty neat, and Vlingo Plus is one of my favorites. I always keep that on my phone, it’s a lifesaver when you’re driving. Forum For BlackBerry has gained some popularity as well, and I really like the idea of being able to find a forum that meets your needs and interests. The challenge was for Super Apps. What other apps do you use that you would call a Super App?
