    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!

    Future Scheduler, by @Appsicum, is a handy little productivity app which lets you automate various tasks and activities like sending an email, text messages, connect a call or publish a social media (Twitter, Facebook) update. The idea is to simplify your life. Follow a few simple steps and you will never hear "how could you forget my birthday!" Also, never miss out on a business opportunity or an important appointment.

    Features:

    • Sync the device with Calendar.
    • Snooze function for reminders.
    • Import contacts from Facebook.
    • Log of scheduled activities.
    • Use templates for text and email.
    • Recurring events – once, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly.
    • Intuitive and user friendly interface.
    • Multiple recipients for text and email.
    • Integrates with phone book to let you add recipients conveniently.

    What I like about this app most is the fact you can set the app to confirm the update before it actually happens. This way you have a second chance to make sure you want that event to take place. You can pick this handy app up in BlackBerry App World for only $1.99!

    Although the BBOS Mobile Site Launcher has been available via OTA for some time now, as of today you can now download the Mobile Launcher app via BlackBerry App World! We've decided that since we have already released the BBOS PlayBook App in App World, that it would be fitting to go ahead and make the Mobile Site Launcher available in App World as well. The BBOS Mobile Launcher app is FREE to download, and available for BlackBerry smartphones running OS 4.2 and higher. Which means pretty much any device going back to the 83xx series. So get your BBOS on, and download now!

    Instant messaging has become the norm for mobile users. It seems as though texting, instant messaging and email have almost replaced the phone call. BBM has long been the a strong point for RIM, and has proven to be popular among today's youth. Despite its popularity some question its ability to maintain its position as the instant-messaging, due to RIM's recent struggle.

    With over 55 million users worldwide BBM is clearly the preferred instant-messaging client, but that has not stopped the competition from moving in on this reach new market. Apple, Samsung, and third party vendors have all jumped on the opportunity to cater to consumers instant messaging fix. Apples iMessage has been slowly gaining popularity among its iPhone users while WhatApp Messenger has been gaining popularity across all platforms.

    So what plans does RIM have for BBM? For starters its does plan on making it a part of its next generation BB 10 platform. But what about the competition? Can we expect BBM to run on other platforms in the near future? The answer to the latter may be a solid no.

    According to the Wall Street Journal RIM had plans to license out its proprietary network before now CEO Thorsten Heins, came on board. A project formed by former Co-CEO's Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, code-name " SMS 2.0" would open up RIM's network to other smartphone makers. SMS 2.0 would license BBM as a service to these other smartphone makers, and allow RIM to make a profit off of licensing fees and support. RIM even acquired the popular messaging company called LiveProfile. However, the project was quickly squashed when newly appointed CEO Thorsten Heins decided that the company should not go with any licensing deals.

    BBM is an important part of the BlackBerry brand, and is one of the things that separates it from other smartphones. RIM will need to concentrate on perfecting the BBM application on its BB 10 line of devices. Consumers will be expecting a BBM client that runs just as smooth as their current BlackBerry device.
