    For some time now we have heard about the BlackBerry App Generator - a self making app interface that allows you to create your own app without the knowledge or skill of developing. I was lucky enough to get a invite to the program in it's beta stages. The first thing I came up with is a app for none other than BlackBerryOS.com! I can't say much about how it works as the program is currently in private beta, however, I literally put this app together in under 5 minutes. What the app generator does is collect your RSS feeds and compiles them into a handy little interface equipped with sexy graphics and animations. All you have to do is put in the images, choose the colors, and input the links. As simple as that. And it looks sexy too. Albeit, not the most in depth app, but it does work as a news/blog app very well. We are still in the beta stages of the App Generator program, so I imagine it will continue to add more features and improvements in the near future. Learn more about the BlackBerry App Generator and request an invite.

    Don't wait around any longer. Head to App World and download the Free BBOS Mobile App! Available for the PlayBook and Smartphones running OS 5 and higher.

    Spotify for BlackBerry has been in AppWorld for nearly a week now and I have had quite some time to put it through its paces. With so many options out there to get your fill of musical entertainment, I bet you're dying to know if Spotify is worth its hefty $9.99 monthly subscription.

    Fear not, we've bitten the bullet and have the goods to deliver. In stark contrast with its desktop counterpart, Spotify for BlackBerry is a no frills, simple music player. In other words, there are no overpowering bells or whistles to distract you from your music.

    Although I'm not a DJ, I am a musician and music lover. So when Pacemaker became available today for the BlackBerry PlayBook, I immediately purchased it and started messing around with some song tracks. One thing for you noobs out there that will be very helpful in learning how to control the app and your mixes, is an interactive tutorial that you can access within the app. This will give you a nice simple good start to creating your own mixes. In the video above I walk you through this little tutorial on how to mix with the Pacemaker app. Now I just need a DJ alias and I'm set! You can also check out a few more how-to tutorial videos made by Pacemaker that I posted in the forums. I would love to hear any mixes you all come up with using this app, so be sure to share them with us in the BBOS forums.

    If you grew up as a kid in the 80's, like myself, then you most likely owned one of the original Executor Keychains. These fun for kids, yet annoying as hell to adults, keychains were a staple to the youth of those times. If you happened to miss out on the Executor Keychain generation, or just want to re-live those childhood memories of blowing up your kid sibling with the infamous dropping bomb sounds, it is now possible thanks to developer Harry Scanlan AKA @footose.

    Harry has taken the sounds and UI of the physical Executor Keychain, made it into a app for your BlackBerry device, and re-named it beExecutor. This app has the 8-bit, 8-sound effects similar to the original sound effect "Executor" Keychain: Bomb, Explosions, Siren, Machine Gun, Phasers, Lasers, Falls and a Gatling Gun. With beExecutor you'll be center of attention no matter what time or place, just crank up the volume and let er' rip! This little noisemaker app is a must have for anyone looking to have a bit of fun.

    And if you are also looking for the original thing, I've spotted a few on eBay for sell as well. You can pick up beExecutor now in App World for only $0.99, only a fraction of what it would cost for the real thing!

    Move over LocalBar, BBHTool, and DDPB the next biggest PlayBook utility has just arrived. Enter PlayBook App Manager, a new gem in the PlayBook management utility software department. Designed by George J this web manager will take complete control over your PlayBook apps, and much more. Easy to install, and implement the PlayBook App Manager has taken over the throne as the ultimate PlayBook utility.

    I could not have been more excited to see a web-based application that is robust yet so simple. My hats off to the developers behind
    PlayBook App Manager. So without further ado, lets jump into some details about PlayBook App Manager.

    The PlayBook App Manager can do many things, and although its primary purpose is add and remove programs from your PlayBook it can also do things like terminate processes. Yes, even Android processes. Now we finally have an Android Kill Switch! In addition things like multiple installs, device information, and application information as available as well.

    The PlayBook App Manager is a simple Chrome and Monzilla extension that integrates seamlessly with either browser. All you have to do is enter your PlayBook's ip something like a 192.168.x.x if your PlayBook is on your local LAN or 169.0.x.x if its plugged in via USB. In short you can manage your device over wifi or via USB.

    Some of the main features include:
    Main Features


    1. Save your password in the browser for auto login (or not if you choose not to). Some tricks are done to save half of usual login time.
    2. List all the apps installed. Query run status, launch, terminate, or uninstall any individual app.
    3. Install apps by a queue. Multiple apps may be added to the queue by choosing files in a dialog or a simple drag and drop. Apps may be removed from the queue and installation may be aborted. Installation status is displayed in two steps: file uploading (to the playbook) with a progress bar and the actual installation with echoed messages.
    4. Auto retry for any incomplete installation or uninstallation.
    5. Log and categorize all the results of installations. Locate each one of them by a simple click.


    I do not want to diminish usefulness of the other PlayBook utilities, but this one takes the cake. Make sure you check out the PlayBook App Manager main website at Playbook App Manager . Thanks for the guys over at OSBB for finding this gem. Make sure you keep it right here for some more surprises.

    I could not have been more exited to see a classic video game character once again come back to life. Lara Croft has been the face of the popular Tomb Raider series and has been the bad girl of video game characters since 1996. If your like me then you probably grew up playing this game on the PC. This time Lara makes her makes her way to the BlackBerry PlayBook, in the title called The Guardian Of Light.
