Blackberry App Review: BTSidekick vs. Travel Genius

Ever find yourself in a different city or strange place or even a part of town you don’t know, and need to find a bank/coffee shop/atm etc.? Well as always Blackberry’s got you’re back!
I have been in those situations more often then not and I’m sure everyone has. So I recently found and downloaded 2 different apps to help, and might I add they were FREE! BTSidekick(free in app world) and Travel Genius(free with option of purchase to get more features in app world). Now I know I don’t need 2 of them so I decided to see which one was better and share my findings with you.
We’ll start off with what they do. These apps were created so when you are in search of a store/bank/hotel, any local business really, the app will find it for you and give you a mapped location and even directions if need be! Both apps use the Internet to determine where in the world you are.

Now first point I have to mention, BTSidekick did have more available countries to choose from than the Travel Genius. The speed of what I was searching on BT was fairly decent but could not get the TG to even find where I was, and I’m not even in a small rural city. So since TG didn’t work well on my Bold I can’t delve deeper into a review. From what is described in app world about TG they would do the same but TG had a feature that would remember where you parked your car! TG states that all you have to do is take a picture via the camera launched from TG. Then TG will Geo tag it with the gps location. So when you need to find your car TG will be able to show you and direct you back.
The only bad thing I could say about BT is that you’re searches do not compile in order from closest to farthest from you, they just appear in the same order BT recieves them from google. Other than that I will have to side with BTSidekick.  Stay tuned for more app reviews.
