The warmer weather and longer days are finally here, and as you celebrate the start of a new season, BlackBerry has the apps to get you geared up for Spring.

Enjoy the Outside
-Patio season is heating up, and it's time to dine alfresco. Get first dibs on the best outdoor grub spots when you take advantage of location-based apps like Poynt, WHERE and buzzd. (Free)

-It's time to fire up the grill. With Bills Barbeque Assistant you'll have hassle-free grilling. Not only can you get help creating your menu, but the app will also guide you through the grilling process. ($2.99)

Baseball Season
-Keep up with the game from your device with at Bat 2010. Listen LIVE to regular season and Postseason game, while viewing up to the minute box scores and player stats. ($14.99)

Staying Active
-Get outside, but don?t get lost! Take advantage of hiking & biking applications like BlackStar to keep track of your latitude, longitude, altitude, speed, direction and the distance to your destination. (Free)

-Packing a picnic lunch for that long hike? The Sierra Club Granite Gourmet Knowledge Cards offer trail-tested recipes for backpacking and camping adventures. The app also offers tips on food staples and single-burner cooking. ($4.99) A portion of the app sales proceeds are donated to the Sierra Club for environmental protection causes.

-It?s finally fishing season again! For the best action, keep an eye on the tides. The Tides app will predict and graph in real-time tide data from over 3,000 locations in the US, including Alaska and Hawaii. No internet or network connection is required. ($9.99)

Spring Cleaning
-Out with the old and in with the new, with the Contacts Cleaner app! It finds and merges duplicate contacts in your address book. With a single click, Contacts Cleaner quickly and efficiently eliminates duplicate contacts. ($2.99)
