I received a great suggestion from @gcsantiago where we could create an area so that people could showcase details about their applications built with bbUI.
This Github Issue will be a place where you can post details about your application, what it does, links to App World or use markdown to reference some screen shots to show off what you've done using bbUI. Just add all your details as a comment to this issue.
We want to keep this thread mainly about showcasing your application and not too many back and forth conversations about the applications themselves. Since each post has the github user account of who posted it, feel free to send that github user a message to ask them more about their application.
Remember, Github Issues use markdown formatting so you can create a fairly nice little presentation for your application
Make sure that if you're adding screen shots of your app that they aren't HUGE, and instead fit nicely in the real estate provided in this issue.
I originally wrote the app using a beta version jQuery Mobile, then ChocolateChip-UI, and finally bbUI.js. As Tim mentioned early in README, bbUI.js is extremely cognizant of the performance limitations of the Web technology-based app platform and is by far the most performant framework I've come across.

Read It Offline an RSS reader and Readability client for the BlackBerry PlayBook - with a difference. My pet peeve about RSS readers is that websites that offer a feed typically only place the first few lines of their content in the feed - not optimal for those of us who want to catch up while on a commute to work via the subway or anywhere else where Internet connections are costly or simply unavailable.
Read It Offline solves this problem by using a special algorithm that saves entire articles and their images to your BlackBerry PlayBook for reading on the go. Even if the article is spread over multiple pages. Even if the feed only contains the first few sentences of the article.

Photo Siege enables your PlayBook to view and download facebook photos.
It allows downloading tagged photos and photo albums from facebook. You can download your own and your friends' photos. Once the photos are downloaded, you could view them without an internet connection or set them as wallpaper with your Pictures application. You could also transfer them to your PC for archival purposes. Simply login with your facebook account and start downloading photos with a single tap.
Photo Siege also comes with a nice grid and a full-screen photo view for browsing your photos. You could use it with 1 or multiple facebook accounts.
Photo Siege was developed with bb10 controls (e.g. ActionBar, ActivityIndicator, ContextMenu and GridList) on PlayBook (i.e. bb10ForPlayBook: true). It also uses a few other controls, such as Button, ControlGroup, ImageList, ProgressIndicator, ScreenMenu and Title Bar.

Ported from Playbook to BB10, I switched all the UI from jQuery to bbUI which made things look much nicer and matching the look and feel of BB10.
This is a new app I made for BB10 and found it easiest to use bbUI for the UI.

The text editor for everyone that lives in the cloud but wants control over local and cloud text files.
The text editor of your dreams is here. With CherryNotes you can easily manage your notes and select which ones will get synced to the cloud and which ones should stay local. With one click you back up notes to the cloud and with another click bring any note from the cloud back to your device, and all the notes that are on both locations get synced effortlessly.
As a multitasker I always wanted a text editor that let me keep notes on the device but at the same time sync some of them with a cloud storage solution. After a year looking for the perfect app I couldn't find it, so I decided to build my own, that's how CherryNotes was invented.
A simple time tracking app.
This app was built as part of this training course: http://www.udemy.com/blackberry-10-app-development

In recent years, there has been an explosion of display resolutions, screen sizes, and the resultant pixel density of the various smartphones, tablets, laptops, monitors, and televisions we all use. Because of this, people are speaking more about the "PPI" (Pixels Per Inch) and "Aspect Ratio" of one device versus another. With the immense variety of displays and the collision of so many variables, it can be difficult to determine things such as PPI since the formula is too complex to quickly punch into a calculator.
Thus here is a useful app to calculate not only pixel density but also total pixels, aspect ratio, pixel size, viewing area, and a matching resolution name if one exists in the app. There is also a database that can be browsed with 40 known resolution names, such as VGA, XGA, and Full HD.

CookingCalc is different from the average unit calculator: Usually dry ingredients are measured in Cups in the US and in Grams in the rest of the world. Since it is not an easy arithmetic operation to convert between volume (Cups) and mass (Grams), this app comes with an extensive list of exemplary condiments (e.g. sugar, butter, honey, ...)
CookingCalc helps you convert recipes between the common US units such as
and metric units like
Convert and save whole recipes as lists and share them with your friends via BBM or E-Mail.

So I don't see any links to apps made for bb os5-7. Does this mean that bbui doesn't work well with these os? I was really looking forward to seeing apps that run for those os because i made some myself and would like to compare
