I am always ragging on all of the supposed “Network Accelerators” and “Memory Booster” apps that are out there for BlackBerry. Usually I recommend staying far away especially since they usually have absurdly high price tags. After speaking with quite a few developers and some friends at RIM I have concluded there is nothing a developer could even do to improve network optimization using an app. For today only I kind of changed my mind and decided to mention one.
Handango is offering the NetworkAcc Mobile Network Accelerator app free for today only. This means that all of the people who think that a network accelerator actually works can download the app totally free. In case you are curious to see if it does anything you can download the app free and see for yourself. Keep in mind there is a reason that RIM doesn’t just pony up and buy the technology behind these network accelerators. (Hint: because they use “magic” :))
To get the free copy of NetworkAcc you need to head to this page on Handango’s website. You can then add the app to your cart and use coupon code FAF723 to get it for free. Don’t forget to remove the Handango
extortion fee download protection option or you will get charged $4.99 for it.
