Review: CardKaller calling card manager
Cost: $19.99 with 90 day trial
I was excited to see mention of a calling card application that supports Google Voice (GV). CardKaller has instructions on how to set up the app for use with GV, and they worked great when I tried it out.
They are currently running an open beta test of the app until March 31st. Those who provide comments will receive a free unlocked copy of the app.
There is currently only a Desktop Manager install file, but an OTA link is expected shortly.
The GUI is nice, and probably works fine on non-Storm devices. As the Storm is all I had to work with, I did notice a few problems. First of all, you have to disable Compatibility Mode. Second, I found it difficult to hit the Next and Back buttons on the Storm. They don’t highlight when you scroll over them with your finger, so it is difficult to see what you are selecting. I had the same problem when selecting the calling card to use.
Third is really a preference, and other testers have mentioned it as well: you still have to select the card when only one card exists.
I have provided these and other comments to the developers, and they seem very receptive. I look forward to testing further refined versions.
As I mentioned, I haven’t tested this on the trackball devices, but I would imagine the navigation is excellent.
Although I have not used other Calling Card apps, you can check out a link on the CardKaller website to comparison on BlackBerryForums.com between CardKaller and BerryDialer.
Overall, I really like this app, and give it a rating of 9/10.

I got a free dialer BlaCaDa from the AppWorld. It also works with my Google Voice account. I feel that calling card functionality should be part of the BlackBerry OS itself. Many other phones have that build in
