    Pacemaker made it known to us just a week ago that their app was going to be available to download in App World on June 14th. Now we have certain proof and time of this future event, as via their Facebook page, Pacemaker has made it known that on June 14th, at 2pm GMT, the world will have access to download the app via App World. Did I mention that Pacemaker is launching exclusively for the BlackBerry PlayBook. Android and iOS fanboys are so jealous! Sweet! We'll be sure to send out a reminder the second Pacemaker shows face in the App World store. Are you looking forward to the app?

    If you've ever been in a situation where you wanna take a picture with your BlackBerry smartphone, but the shutter sound would just be rude to others around you, this app is for you!

    Devcellent Solutions Inc. has released ShutUp Camera, which is basically an app that mutes your native Camera. The way this app differs from many others is that most of the other "camera mute" apps utilize a screenshot method, but ShutUp Camera gives you full high-resolution photos by muting sound in Native camera app.

    This app must not have sat well with RIM, as they've pulled it from App World. Luckily, we are still offering the app in our BlackBerryOS Store.

    Now that the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.1 Beta has been released unto the developer community and installed on tablets, RIM is making good by updating and releasing the BlackBerry Native SDK v2.1 Beta. This will allow devs to make any changes necessary, if at all. There have been a few fixes and known issues, but this seems to be what is primarily new with this release:

    • The new Camera Library allows you to interact with cameras connected to a BlackBerry 10 device. You can connect to the camera, control the viewfinder, take photos, and record video. The API also provides you read access from different stages in the imaging datapath.

    For more details into the entire changelog of this release, you can see at the BlackBerry Native SDK site here.

    The free Google+ app for BlackBerry, made by Smarter Apps, has just been updated to v1.0.59. This update is mandatory for the app to function correctly. Apparently Google keeps changing things around on the G+ side, and these kind of updates are necessary to continue using the G+ network. While you all are at it, be sure to follow BlackBerryOS on our Google+ account page for all the latest and greatest in BlackBerry!

    The web based Twitter client, Twimbow, has announced they will release their first mobile app on day one for BlackBerry 10 OS smartphones when they launch later this year. Twimbow is a web application that helps any social media user to engage their network of friends more effectively, by organizing and enriching their conversations online. Twimbow also has a feature where you can organize your contacts by certain colors, allowing you to filter out what is most relevant and important to you.

    Twimbow has laid out the 5 reasons why they are going to start their app with the BlackBerry 10 OS in a blog post. These reasons include:

    1. BlackBerry 10 is the most open OS available for smartphones, way more than Android (and capable of running Android apps as well). The set of tools developers can use is incredible and you can basically port any app to that OS very easily.
    2. HTML5 performance: as many tests already confirmed, HTML5 performance on BlackBerry 10 is far superior than iOS or Android. It is actually outstanding. Given that Twimbow is a rich HTML5 app, porting it to BB10 is very easy and can offer incredible performances to our users
    3. BB10 is capable of running an HTML5 app as a native app, with a deep integration with the OS (notifications, BBM integration, UI etc.) and taking advantage of the real multi-tasking capabilities of the BB10 OS, something not available in other smartphones.
    4. the opportunity to be in the BB App World for the BB10 launch is huge, so we want to be there.
    5. some of the countries that are very important for Twimbow are historically very important for BlackBerry as well. An example? Indonesia, #2 country in terms of Twimbow registered users and now #1 in terms of daily users.

    So check out the video demo above of the early BlackBerry 10 version of Twimbow and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!
