There is now a Hebrew Bible application for BlackBerry PlayBook. This app is only written in Hebrew, which is great for those who are wanting to study or read the Bible in it's original tongue. One thing I did notice is that the icon name is messed up a bit, probably due to the fact that Hebrew is not fully supported on the PlayBook yet. Which also means you can't use the search
The week is starting off fresh with a nice update to Twitter for BlackBerry. The app has been released from its Beta state, and is now available via BlackBerry App World. Many have already started to see the new update in App World, if you have not, clear your App World cache using ALT
The popular game for iOS, Cowboy Guns, has just hit the BlackBerry PlayBook! In this gorgeous top-down shooter, you assume the role of The Kid - but this game is anything but child’s play. Intense firefights, a multitude of era-specific weapons, and a playfully engaging narrative await you on your quest to rule the West.
The native BlackBerry Parental Controls feature is now available in App World for users with a BlackBerry 6 or BlackBerry 7 OS smartphone. Those with OS 5 will see a compatible version in the near future, but RIM has not specified when that exact date will be.
The parental control app must first be downloaded and installed to your device, in which it then becomes
Earlier today, a pretty laughable "survey" came out and spread through the web about how RIM is quickly losing developer interest. In a great post on the BlackBerry Developer Blog, Alec Saunders, VP of Developer Relations at RIM, addresses the report directly.
Just yesterday, Blaq for BlackBerry PlayBook, was updated to v1.8.2, bringing us some cool new features and functionality. Proving that the app has great developer support, we get yet another update that adds some new features and bug fixes! New Features:
The popular Twitter client from Kisai Labs, Blaq for BlackBerry PlayBook, has been updated to v1.8.2. So far one thing I noticed about this update is that you can now swipe down the menu and easily change between multiple accounts. This is especially handy for me as I'm always changing between the @BlackBerryOS account and my personal
These last few weeks has be filled with sad news. Last week, Calgary,AB-based Poynt filled for bankruptcy. It's sad to see them in this situation, as they are one of the very few Canadian software companies to see international success.
Let's hope this doesn't put a damper on their already existing BlackBerry 10 app they demonstrated at BB10Jam in Orlando.
S4BB Limited has released a brand new series of magazine applications for BlackBerry PlayBook. The series consists of 24 different magazines, varying from sports to animals, psychology or food & cooking. Each magazine will provide you with the latest news and developments on your favorite topic.
One of the most anticipated forthcoming about BlackBerry 10 is what the native apps are going to look like, and how they will function. We know that TAT (The Astonishing Tribe) have been put in charge of coming up with great user experience and UIs for the native BlackBerry 10 apps. Today, assuming the slides are legit, we have a sneekpeek at the Facebook app on the BlackBerry 10 device!
One of my favorite apps on BlackBerry, BlackBerry Protect, has been updated today. The new version brings with it a slew of updates and new features. This is a must have app so if you haven't downloaded it already, make sure you do so now.
Today during RIM's Annual General Meeting of Shareholder's Thorsten's Heins confirmed that BBM on BlackBerry 10 will include a video chat feature. While we were hardly surprised at announcement seeing as the currently BlackBerry PlayBook has a Video Chat featured installed and the
This cool little game has been out for a couple of weeks now but I just came across it yesterday and I have to say, it's pretty awesome. SolverLabs has made, in essence, a clone of the famous iOS app Tiny Wings and brought it to BlackBerry smartphones and the PlayBook.
Tiny Bird has the user take control of a tiny bird as he (or she, not really sure) makes his way through hills collecting stars and precious gems. The secret is to create enough momentum as Tiny Bird slides on the hills (by pressing the screen when going downhill and releasing at the correct time at the bottom of the hill) before the storm catches up to you.
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.
