Welcome to BerryLocate, the most full featured 100% completely free*, BlackBerry tracking application. *Note that the app is free for private use. Commercial users please click here for more details.
This app can be used to record locations using most BlackBerry devices, and is extremely useful in cases where phones have been lost or stolen, or if you need to keep track of someone. Not only does it report your current location, a record is kept of your previous movements, so you can select a day and time from the list to see where you were at that specific moment!
It can also be used as a way to keep track of you children, loved ones or friends, with their permission of course. Your tracking URL can also be shared with a trusted friend or relative, in case you need to be found in a hurry.
Then there are the alert zones. Create areas that will send alerts to designated email addresses when you enter into them, or leave them.
Users can also set up an SOS system which will alert trusted contacts via email and SMS if you need help.
