    I saw The Hunger Games on opening night (Friday) and it was awesome. I hadn't read the books at all but I decided to check out the movie anyways because it looked interesting. This was the first time though, that a movie was so good that it made me want to read the following books in order to see what happens next. Now, I know many people use devices to read books but I just never got into it. Whether it's a Kindle or a PlayBook, I never really thought I'd like it.

    Well last night, I saw a little tip on Twitter about getting all three Hunger Games series books for $1.53/each when using Kobo Books and decided to try it to see if it worked. It did and now I have all three books on my PlayBook. Upon check out, simply enter the code hungergamesdeal3 (for the first book, "The Hunger Games"), hungergamesdeal4 (for the second book, "Catching Fire"), and hungergamesdeal5 (for the third book, "Mocking Jay"). So if you want the books, make sure you get them as soon as possible as this deal is only available till March 31st.

    Here is a nifty little app that just hit the App World market. It's called SRS File Multi Send Plugin for BBM, which allows the user to send files to multiple BBM contacts at the same time, freeing you from having to send a file to each contact one by one. Why this hasn't been fully implemented into BBM yet, I don't get. But you can bet that this little app has the BBM RIM devs heads turning.

    With this app there are a couple options to send a file for multiple BBM contacts:

    1- Select the file you want to send,
    2- Choose BBM contacts and send, simple as this.

    OR

    1-Take a photo,
    2-Choose BBM contacts and send.

    You can use the trial version as long as you want, but you can only select 2 contacts for each file at a time. The paid full version offers no trial restrictions in addition to being ad free. The paid version also come with 1 free year of support and upgrades. However, by then I imagine this feature will be built into the BBM platform.

    The app that many thought wasn't going to make it to BlackBerry smartphones, now officially has. The MLB At Bat 12 app is now available to BlackBerry smartphone users. If you are a die hard baseball fan, you will know how great of an app this is. The pricey tag of $14.99 might turn some users off, but others find it well worth it. The app is only available for BlackBerry smartphones right now, which means no love for the PlayBook yet. That's definitely surprising to me at least. I, for one, happen to prefer to buy apps on the PlayBook over my BlackBerry. Hopefully we'll see a nice PlayBook version in the future.

    After many BlackBerry users in the UK were disappointed to find that BBM Music v1.1 would not be available to them, many (okay, all) will be happy to know that with the v1.2 upgrade, BBM Music will add availability to Beta Zone members in the UK. Another perk of this update would be that the BBM Music has gotten a face lift! These are the features you'll find in the updated beta app:
    • Invitation requests - view songs and friends in common before accepting or declining a request
    • "Favorite" songs and contacts - let everyone know which songs and people you enjoy most
    • Intelligent shuffle - shuffle songs based on songs, genre, artist, song popularity, album, contact, release year or recently added
    • Default friend - new users will have a default friend listed under their contacts
    • Applications enhancements - current users will notice notification, start up performance, and accessing account information improvement


    For now v1.2 is only an eligible program in Beta Zone (only for US, Canada, and UK users), but the fact that the beta app is now capable of use in the UK is a good sign that the official version following this one will inevitably bring many new UK users to the BBM Music world. If you're itching to try this beta app, just remember that you have to currently have a BBM Music subscription to actually use the app, if you don't, sign up today! With a pretty new look and the addition of my fellow BlackBerry users across the Atlantic, BBM Music gets even better as the days go on.

    We reported last month that WordPress was working on update v1.6 for BlackBerry. Now, WordPress is allowing users to join in the public beta and download v1.6! This new version has a revisited UI and some great new features that trumps the previous v1.5. Let us know how this version works for you, and don't forget to leave some feedback!



    Note: If you are using OS 7.1 you may get a "907 invalid COD" error if trying to download via OTA. To fix this, you may need to copy the jad and all cod files to your memory card, and then open jad from there in order to install. Thanks to Greg @alwaysaterrier for figuring this out.

    Living deep in the heart of Texas, there's one thing that we can never plan for: the weather. Needless to say, dressing to accommodate the weather ...is impossible. And I'm not even exaggerating. Because of this, I am always needing to stay to date with the current weather situation. For example, I've been sitting in the library and had no idea that there was a tornado nearby. How nearby? I don't know yet. Good thing I have my trusty BeWeather app! It is by far the best weather app I have ever had the pleasure of downloading on my BlackBerry and I use it dozens of time a day on average.

    My trusty BeWeather app was fortunately updated earlier today to v2.6.17 and includes a fix with issues regarding background auto-updates. If you need a reliable weather app, I highly recommend BeWeather! To add to the excitement, the paid version (normally $9.99) is FREE right now, compliments of BlackBerry. Sure you can get the original BeWeather Free, but I would hop on over to App World and download the complimentary BeWeather now!

    They are known as the "world's largest newstand" and now they are available to all PlayBook owners via App World. Zinio is, according to many, the best app for magazines. They told us before that the app would available mid-March and low and behold they have delivered. This becomes another huge title for the RIM to have secured for their PlayBook OS so make sure you check it out today!
