    I love it when apps go on sale. I especially love it when it's apps that are actually awesome like Show Me The Images and Email++. The guys from Kisai Labs and Devcellent are offering this for a limited time so if you don't already have both of these apps in your BlackBerry then make sure you get them now.

    Show Me the Images

    By default, BlackBerry® devices are set to defer image downloads in e-mail messages until the user goes to the menu and clicks "Get Images". What if you wanted more control?

    Show Me The Images automatically downloads images in your e-mails without you needing to hit that "Get Images" menu item. You can disable it, download based on a safe list of e-mail addresses (default) or download no matter who the contact is.

    Email++

    Enhance your BlackBerry® email experience today with Email++ - A fully integrated graphical toolbar for the native BlackBerry Email app with features such as Convert To, Forward/Reply with Edit, Unsend, Priority, Block/Filter, My Availability and My Location. Email++ also features Microsoft Outlook like Message Preview no matter on which screen (including the Homescreen) you are on. Tired of fragmented plugins that show up as mere menu items in the email app and are hard to find and use? Try Email++ today and love email like never before.

    Waze is a new kind of social networking app that allows drivers to build roads that haven't yet been "paved" on the app's map system, as well as use live (and most importantly: current) maps as well. The app enables users the opportunity to check real time traffic updates that other Waze users have posted while driving and even use GPS navigation! One thing I really like is that you get points for driving, paving roads, and even hitting little icons on the map for bonus points. The app supports all BlackBerry devices over 8900.

    A couple of days ago, Mahmood from Devcellent Solutions shooted me an email about their newest app Email++. After using it for a couple of days I can already tell this is a must have app for BlackBerry users everywhere.

    What is Email++ and what does it do

    Email++ brings the convenience of a desktop email client to the powerful always-on BlackBerry email by augmenting the features of the existing BlackBerry email app. It is essentially a plugin for the BlackBerry email app that does not add mere menu items to the email app's menu but instead, it is a graphical toolbar that gets embedded right on the BlackBerry email App. Users of Email++ will have access to its features instantly while viewing or composing emails. Simply by scrolling up from any email message will reveal this toolbar.

    The pictures say it all, Twitter for BlackBerry definitely came out on top in my search of Twitter for BlackBerry vs HootSuite. I don't mean to say that HootSuite is all bad or that T4BB is perfect, but for now, this is how the results will stand.

    Every now and then there is a game that I come across that is so addicting I just cant stop playing. Crazy Survival, by TechSoft Venture is one of those games. I was first introduced to Crazy Survival by a friend, and he assured me that I would enjoy the enjoy the game. I hesitated at first because, it been a while since I have played a good game on my BlackBerry. However, I was glad that I decided to download this game.

    RIM gave us a big surprise today and officially released their much anticipated BBM Music service! Everyone has been patiently waiting on this to come out of beta. Beta testers can assure you that this service is legit. You can browse millions of songs and instantly add them to your collection. I really enjoyed testing out this service and am excited for its release today.

    This week for my first article in the App Tuesday series I'll be cutting my teeth on the Pandora application. Pandora is a free custom streaming radio application for your BlackBerry device.

    Howdy hands, it's Monday again, and I'm on my way to Armpit, USA (New Jersey). I got me another load in Chocolate Town (Hershey, PA), so I'll be hualin Dispacther Brains (Empty trailer) when I pay the "Lemme outta Jersey" tax.

    I gotta tell ya, all the bears (police) I see with customers (people pulled over by police) makes me wonder if anyone knows anything about Trapster, a handy app for BlackBerry, but also for Android and iPhone's too. Now, drivin a rig means I don't get the privilege of using a Bird dog (radar detector), it's against Federal law for me to even posses one in my truck. But that's why I have been using Trapster.

    Hammerdown Monday is written by ADPerdue, a genuine Long Haul Trucker with eight years on the road, recently certified as having over one million accident and ticket free miles, and a bona fide BlackBerry junkie. Apps are rated from one gear to ten gears, with one meaning "don't use this app even if they pay ya", and ten meaning "if you don't have this app yet, you need some serious head shrinkin".

    When I first heard about IM+, my first thought was “Oh great, another IM client”. Then I loaded it up on my Torch, and within a few hours, I deleted my longtime IM client, and haven’t looked back since. There was a learning curve, but what do you expect with an app that has more features than you're used to? However, the learning curve is a small one, it took just an hour or so to get familiar with all the features that Shape Services managed to fit into IM+.

    Starting this week, every Wednesday I will be reviewing a new entertainment related app (think movies, food, music; etc). Many BlackBerry users are unaware that our platform has some incredibly solid apps so I feel this weekly column will take a deeper look into some of the most useful BlackBerry apps.

    So let's get started! For my first review I will be showing off a personal favorite...

    If you're like me and use multiple cell phones with differing operating systems, then you are probably wondering when the PlayBook will feature some of the apps that you've grown to love on your other systems ...I mean why can't I view my Kindle books on the gloriousness that is the PlayBook?! Tablets are built for this kind of application, but they are unfortunately lacking for download.

    When questioned about the release of such apps for tablets, the companies become very hush, hush. If you want to know where your favorite app companies stand in regards to these releases, please check out the below link.

    Douglas from Inside BlackBerry Blog goes over how adding Super Apps characteristics will extend the functionality and stickiness of a BlackBerry smartphone app. In the above video, Mike from Xtreme Labs shows how something as seemingly simple as a weather application can leverage Super Apps characteristics to become a valuable tool in your daily life. He also goes over the basic definition of what a Super App is in comparison to a regular app. Even better news, you can download AccuWeather for FREE in BlackBerry App World. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think of this highly integrated Super App!

    Your BlackBerry can do a lot more than just send off e-mails to your boss and BBM your best friends. Believe it or not, your BlackBerry works hard so it can play hard. With that said, I want to share something with you...

    You can download an absolutely free YouTube player application for your phone! The YouTube players allows you to "browse, play, search, share and bookmark your favorite videos" all with a super easy user experience.

    Our bloggers at BBOS like to go above and beyond for you, so if that wasn't enough, you'll also be able to do more than just watch your favorite videos, too. Here's what you can do:
    • Browse the Featured, Popular, Top Rated, Newest and Most Viewed feeds
    • Play videos over RTSP, WiFi, and WAP
    • Share links to the best videos via email to your friends, family, or co-workers

    Last week, BlackBerry Messenger v6.0.0.56 was leaked from an extracted OS 6.1 leaked build. Many individuals who initially tried to install it ran into bricked devices. Within 48 hours (thanks Poita316 & Firesail2010) we were able to create a step-by-step installation for our readers.

    This new version of BBM brings tons of UI & tweaks that are much welcomed.

    The ability to choose specific colors for each BBM contact is a feature that should have been included years ago! I find it much easier to differentiate between what I'm writing & what my contacts are typing back to me.

    There is a slight lag within the application, but the overall use is smooth. Many are stating that they've had memory leaks or battery drain from this leak.

    OS 6.1 icons abound & they bring a more friendly look to BBM.

    If you wish to install this leaked version of BBM, please follow the instructions below carefully:

    1. Make sure you have a Stock BBM (5.0.1.49 seems to work well) *Do NOT delete*
    2. Install BlackBerry ID app (BlackBerry ID [OS6] - Downloads - BBH-Plus Forums)
    3. Install BBM 6.0.0.56 (http://bb-h.me/bbm60056)
    4. If prompted to overwrite, please say YES
    Warning 1: This new BBM can only be installed on OS 6 devices. OS 5 is NOT compatible.
    Warning 2: Although we have created a process that has been successful at installing BBM 6, the process is not guaranteed to work on your device. If you choose to install, BlackBerryOS is not accountable for any malfunction that may happen to your device.
