    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!

    The makers of the much anticipated DJ mixing app coming to the BlackBerry PlayBook, have announced on Twitter that their app, Pacemaker, will be ready to download via App World on June 14th. Pacemaker is also launching exclusively to the BlackBerry PlayBook platform. Sorry iPhone and Android users, suckaz. If you haven't heard much about Pacemaker, check out this video of "God's Will" demoing the app in a performance at BlackBerry World 2012.

    All you bloggers and writers out there will be quite happy to know that WordPress has updated their BlackBerry smartphone and Andr... PlayBook apps today. The biggest change is for the smartphone app going from v1.5.1 to v1.6 as it introduces a refresh UI, a couple of a new features and a lot of bug fixes.

    The PlayBook update up to v2.1.2 from v2.1.1 is relatively small, but if you're like me and need to keep everything current, you will want to get this one as well.

    Today S4BB Limited has released a free version of the App Task Manager application for BlackBerry Smartphones. This application will allow you to view a list of all running applications on your device, even those running in the background. Besides listing running applications, App Task Manager shows you detailed information for each app such as size, version, vendor and more!

    Thanks to this application, you will now have the possibility to switch to any app in the list with a single click and close it. Please note that it is not possible to force close other applications. Therefore, you cannot close an app from within App Task Manager.

    The free version comes with an advertisement banner at the bottom to support their app development. If you prefer the app to be ad free you can upgrade for just $0.99 to App Task Manager Pro.

    App Task Manager Free is compatible with all BlackBerry Smartphones running OS 6.0 or higher and can be downloaded at BlackBerry App World:

    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!
