I use my BlackBerry extensively, even to compose, spell check, and post this on the forum. But it really comes in handy over and above its use as a phone and internet browser.

Its ability to save and sort notes is a big help to me. Since I do few shows now, I often get rusty on a complex routine. With the patter and some moves outlined just a shirt pocket away I can review a routine without trouble wherever I am. I have about 25 routines sitting there in nice big type for my failing eyes. I even have some routines on video in my BlackBerry just a reach away.

It's nice to bring up the large Stop Watch and put it on the table rather than trying to see my watch as I time out a routine. I often bring up the You Tube viewer to see how others are doing. And, of course, I review the Magic Çafé Forum from my BlackBerry.

How about you?

Hi Bob,

I loooove my Blackberry. I've even invented a couple of really cool effects with it.

This stop watch feature you speak of.......is this an app that has to be downloaded or a standard feature?

Thanks,

Jim

It came standard on my Storm.. The stopwatch also has lap timing and there is a nice Timer. The readout can be Digital, flip over or Analog display.

The stopwatch is available by selecting the clock, then pressing "menu" and selecting "stopwatch." Great, little-known feature of most Blackberries. If you have an older one that doesn't have this feature built-in, there are quite a few available for free on the web. Crackberry.com is a good reference.

SoCalPro - I'd love to hear what you've done effect-wise with yours. The only things I've done w/ mine are using it for simple, non-device-specific things, levitations, vanishes, etc. There are several things out there for the iPhone, but I've found nothing for the BB.

I have a picture of my family dog with a face down card as my phone wallpaper. I show it and lock it before pulling out a wow, sharpie and deck of cards. When I make the signed card appear in the wow holder, the card whose image was in the wow is face up on my Lock Screen with the pup, the dog has revealed the card that disappeared.
