    Looks like BBM version 6.2 will be hanging around the Beta Zone for a little longer. Although it has already been officially released, members of the Beta Zone were notified that the BBM 6.2 beta program will remain open. Beta Zone coordinators have issued the following statement:
    BlackBerry Messenger 6.2 Staying Open LongerHi everyone, Although BBM 6.2 has officially launched, the BlackBerry Messenger 6.2 Beta Program will be staying open slightly longer than orginally mentioned in the BBM 6.2 launch notice. That means more time for you to give feedback on the app! Keep it coming
    In addition we have received word that some users are receiving BBM version 6.2.0.51. Not sure whats new in this version or what the change log is. We will just have to wait and see. If you are seeing this update be sure to let us know your findings an fixes.

    Update: Foursquare for BlackBerry has been updated again to v3.9.1 this afternoon. The only change is apparently a bug fix for OS 5 users.

    Now with NFC support of OS 7.1, Foursquare is now updated to v3.9! While on the go, you can easily tell friends where you are, share pictures, get their comments ("I'm right around the corner, I'll stop by to say hello"), and get insider tips and reviews ("order the Lobster Ravioli; it's the best dish by far."). Tons of places offer discounts and freebies to the foursquare community, and you earn points and badges for doing the things you love. If you want, you can easily post your proudest check-ins to Facebook or Twitter.

    This version of foursquare includes a few core improvements to the app:

    • Updated message notification support, now see your notification within your BlackBerry message list alongside your email and other app notifications.
    • Improved GPS logic
    • NFC support for OS 7.1 devices. Now share venue/tip via NFC or checkin.

    Be sure to let us know how this update works for you in the comments!

    The makers of the EmergencyLink app have contacted us to let us know about their new very handy little app. In a nutshell, EmergencyLink is a service that allows you to store your emergency information and share it with friends and family, and it also provides real 24-hour support. Think of a scenario where you get into an accident and don't have proper identification or that ability to relay information about yourself or your emergency contacts. That's where EmergencyLink solves the problem. And best of all, this app is free to download in App World!

    As a lover of music and mixing songs, I've been looking for a good DJing app on the PlayBook for quite some time. The latest app to show its prowess in App World is DJStudio. This Android ported app runs fairly well on the PlayBook and the fact that it's free makes it look even better.

    In all fairness, it doesn't have the sexiest UI and has a lot of room for improvement but it definitely does what you download it for. Mixing on it is a breeze and the beat matching features works spot on.

    I hope the developers of the app, Beatronik, make a couple of main UI changes, in order to make the console controls, beat bar, and other parts bigger/easier to click. Once those changes take effect, this could be the best DJing app on the PlayBook. Until then though, DJPad will still be #1 in my book.

    About a week ago we reported that today, Tues the 24th, BlackBerry Beta Zone website was going to get a much needed redesign and it's finally happened! The overall redesign UI is more "blog-like" to give the site a overall easy navigational feel.

    The forums are also going to get a makeover so members can keep track of their latest posts, ect. The mobile interface will be much improved and easier to navigate, and a new 2 click feature will be implemented so it takes only 2 clicks to start new beta downloads.

    I for one am really exited for this redesign, and for sure we will see a much needed spike in the beta testing community to get active in making these native RIM apps how we'd like them.

    Are you a Beta Zone member/tester? Let us know what you think of this redesign in the comments! If not, get signed up today!
