    I was pleasantly surprised today when our good buddy Alex Kinsella tweeted about a new musical app making its debut in App World. MorphWiz-Play brings the best of synthesizers to our tablets and utilizes the native accelerometer to make them rock even more.

    Check out what they had to say about their app:
    MorphWiz, the brain child of Dream Theater keyboardist, Jordan Rudess, and award-winning developer, Kevin Chartier, took the music app business by storm, winning Billboard’s Best Music Creation App, the Best App Ever award for Best Music App, and an Electronic Musician Editor’s choice award. Jordan uses MorphWiz on stage and in the studio with his prog-metal band, Dream Theater. MorphWiz-Play takes the deep synthesis and immersive visuals of MorphWiz and packages it into 30 custom presets programmed personally by the Wizard himself, Jordan Rudess.
    I just purchased the app and after messing around with it for about 10 minutes I have to say I love it. I can't wait to mess with it more and be able to fully exploit its potential.

    BlackBerry App World has updated to version 3.1.2.32 (2.3MB), and so far there is no changelog on what is new. Some BlackBerry users may not receive this update just as of yet, but please be patient, it will come. If you notice any changes or anything different with this BlackBerry App World version, please post in the comments.

    One of my top 3 all-time favorite apps on my BlackBerry, BeBuzz, is currently on sale courtesy of Bellshare. In case you're unfamiliar with BeBuzz, let's go over a couple of the things that makes this app great.

    At the beginning, BeBuzz simply controlled the color of the LED on our BlackBerrys. Progressively they've added more. From the length of the LED flash, to toasts and custom LED colors, BeBuzz simply does it all. For some the price may be a little too steep, but if you're ever going to spend $4 on an app, then this is the right app to do it on.

    Check out more features of BeBuzz:
    - Choose from 20 predefined solid LED and 12 rapid flashing DISCO LED COLORS
    - Assign colors for E-Mails, SMS, BBM and Calls from your FAVORITE CONTACTS
    - This FULL version gives you UNLIMITED CONTACTS
    - Assign colors for BlackBerry Messenger, Facebook, Twitter, Missed Calls, Calendar, Tasks, Battery and many 3rd party apps (see list below)
    - Create an unlimited number of CUSTOM LED COLORS and DISCOS
    - STACK 2 LED COLORS for even more color variations
    - Repeating Notifiers: Keep your phone's audible notifiers repeating until you acknowledge them
    - On-Screen Popup Notifiers: Unobtrusive on-screen messages ("toasts") for messages and events
    - Text-to-Speech: BeBuzz will read your messages out aloud, fully customizable (free until Mar 31st, 2012)
    - Vibrate-While-Ringing: Have vibrate while ringing for notifiers and incoming calls.
    - Vibrate/sound on call connect/disconnect
    - Fully customizable and doesn't drain your battery!

    This is a sad announcement to everyone. As stated by Google, they are going to discontinue their support for Google Sync for BlackBerry app starting June 1, 2012. This is said to be part of their "Spring-cleaning stuff" which I must say is out of season and also not the first time they have stopped supporting the BlackBerry OS. Last year they ended their support for Gmail app.

    In August 2011, I sold my BlackBerry smartphone to my Mother for $80 and moved over to Android. I purchased a HTC Desire S for around $400-500. Don’t get me wrong, it was hard moving to Android from BlackBerry. I’d be losing BlackBerry Messenger, Push email and of course, my beloved keyboard. Now, in April 2012, I’m still using my HTC, and though I’ve enjoyed my time installing ROMs, overclocking and doing various other warranty destroying activities, I think it’s time to move on, and get back to my old BlackBerry ways.

    On April 19th 2011, I purchased a BlackBerry PlayBook. I watched it develop, from OS 1.0 through to OS 2.0. I witnessed the increase in apps, which is a subject with much controversy. I believe the increase in quality and quantity was dramatic, and that the range of apps now available is great. This said, I still think there’s room for improvement within app world, by certain developers (Cough, Netflix and Skype).

    The extremely useful BlackBerry Travel and the addicting BBM Music have both been updated with today with new versions being released officially in App World. As always, these updates may take a minute to reach everyone so patience is key. If not, you can always try refreshing App World (alt + R,S,T).

    BlackBerry Travel's new version, 2.5.18.99, brings BBM integration into the Travel mix, which we know is a welcomed feature.

    BBM Music's new version, 1.2.0.17, brings the following change log:

    Invitation Requests - Discovering similar musical tastes just got easier! When an invitation request is sent from a ‘friend of a friend’ through Recent Updates you will now be able to view songs and the common friend before accepting/declining an invitation.

    ‘Favorite’ Songs and Contacts - You can now highlight songs or contacts as favorites in BBM Music 1.2! To favorite a song, you need to click on the star displayed in the top left hand corner while listening to a specific song. When the star is highlighted yellow, this will indicate the song as a “favorite” and you will now be able to access this song through “favorite songs” on your profile tab. Favorite songs will be displayed to your friends in Recent Updates For a favorite contact, when you visit a contact’s page you can select “favorite” from the top menu bar. This will add a highlighted yellow star beside the contact’s name in the contacts tab which will only be visible to you. You will now have the ability to search by “favorite”contacts within the contacts tab.

    The moment has finally arrived! After seeing several paid unofficial versions of Wikipedia apps make their way to App World, we've now spotted an official Wikipedia app for the PlayBook. Many features come with this app, including a nearby search, opening articles in the PlayBook browser, read search results in several different languages and make adjustment font size for a more comfortable reading experience.

    Back in February, Kayak released a statement saying they would no longer provide support for their BlackBerry smartphone app. Apparently they didn't stay away from BlackBerry altogether, as we've seen the official launch of Kayak Travel For PlayBook today in App World. This repackaged/ported Android version brings an updated UI & more user-friendly menus.

    It is likely that Kayak decided to port this app due to the high demand of PlayBook users who requested it.

    I love the Beta Zone, it's no secret. I think it's been extremely underrated over the last year or so and is quite frankly one of the few things RIM has done correctly. Today, RIM has sent out an email announcing the split of the Beta Zone that will be coming very soon. The split will be separating the enterprise and consumer based beta apps into two separate sites. This is definitely a welcome change for Beta Zone employees and users alike.

    Also, according to our little sources, the new Beta Zone will have a different look and feel. It will be more along the lines of a blog and will be a lot more user-friendly for those of us that frequent it. The new sites are rumored to be launching next Tuesday (#TwosDay!), April 24th.

    Check out the email from the BlackBerry Beta Zone below!
    BlackBerry Beta Zone has grown significantly since its launch nearly three years ago and we are pleased to inform you that it will be evolving soon to better suit both consumers and business members who participate regularly in BlackBerry beta programs. BlackBerry Beta Zone will soon have a brand new sub-site, BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business, focusing on beta programs for business software and services. BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business will offer:

    Business specific beta programs and content
    An improved mobile browsing experience
    Updated community features
    The update is expected to occur in the coming weeks and requires no action on your part. While logged into BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business, you will be able to access all your business beta programs on behalf of your organization. Your existing BlackBerry Beta Zone account remains valid for consumer beta programs as well.


    After the update, the URLs for BlackBerry Beta Zone will be as follows:

    BlackBerry Beta Zone – Business: www.blackberry.com/businessbeta
    BlackBerry Beta Zone – Consumer: www.blackberry.com/beta


    Once logged in to either site, switching between business and consumer is simple, seamless, and will not require another login.


    We are very excited for the changes coming to BlackBerry Beta Zone and we look forward to your continued participation in BlackBerry beta programs.


    Should you have any questions, please reply or contact us at enterprisebeta@rim.com.


    Best regards,


    BlackBerry Beta Programs

    One of our inquiring minds on the BBOS team, @furiousguido, has just received an official answer from Skype via the @SkypeSupport twitter handle on the status of a Skype app coming to the PlayBook tablet. PlayBook users have had hopes that with the new and improved updates coming out for PlayBook, that we would see a Skype PlayBook app soon. Not the case, as Skype Support has tweeted that there are "no plans for BlackBerry PlayBook compatible Skype release."

    Be sure to leave your feedback to Skype on why the PlayBook should have a native Skype app. Let the riots begin!
