    Great announcement today! BBM 6.0.1 has made its way out of the Beta Zone, and into App World !! For everyone patiently waiting, you should start to see it appearing in App World. If at first you are not seeing the update try resetting your App World cache by holding down the Alt key + rstrst. It will take some time for the update to hit everyone so be patient. Good things come to those who wait!

    Here are some new things you can expect in BBM version 6.0.1 taken from the Inside BlackBerry Blog:

    • Explore BBM-connected Apps
    BBM users will now be able to pull up “Explore BBM-connected Apps” from a menu in the BBM Contacts screen. This action is designed to automate a BlackBerry App World™ storefront search for “BBM” by redirecting users to a list of up to 25 of the most popular BBM-connected apps available.

    • Sharing App content with your BBM Contacts is easier
    Many BBM users have told us that they love sharing app content with their BBM friends who use the same app, but they also wanted to share content with their BBM friends who don’t have the app. BBM v6.0.1 is designed so that you can now share app-specific content with your BBM contacts regardless of whether your contact has the app installed.

    For example, foursquare users may want to share a tip or badge they’ve recently earned, or Huffington Post users may want to share a breaking news story with their BBM contacts. Your friends or contacts will also be prompted to download the BBM-connected app if they don’t have it installed.

    • Include BBM v5.0 users in application invites
    Now you can include even more friends in the fun! You can now invite BBM v5.0 & BBM v6.0 contacts to join in the fun and share BBM-connected app experiences. Your BBM v5.0 contacts will be prompted to download BBM v6.0 in order to access BBM-connected apps. For users new to BBM v6.0 and BBM-connected apps, here’s a quick rundown of some benefits to upgrading.

    • Inviting BBM friends to experience your favorite apps
    Chatting with BBM contacts from inside BBM-connected apps
    Discovering apps and updates through friends by browsing their recent profile updates of their contacts profile
    Happy updating! Be sure to let us know how you like the new BBM. Download it here:

    With the recent Native BlackBerry IM clients updates, some of you were questioning why AIM was not included in the update.

    Well, it seems the reasoning behind this is that RIM-built AOL Instant Messenger has been discontinued. Don't worry, you'll still be able to get AIM on your BlackBerry, as AOL has built their own app.

    Beginning October 28, 2011, the AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) for BlackBerry® smartphones application which you may currently be using is being discontinued and will no longer be supported. You may continue to access AIM service for your BlackBerry smartphone through a new AIM for BlackBerry® application built by AOL, which includes new capabilities such as letting you stay connected with your AIM Buddies and Facebook Chat friends while on the go.

    To update to AIM for BlackBerry® built by AOL, please visit: Free AIM - Download AIM - Free Apps from BlackBerry App World and follow the on-screen instructions. To remove your current version of the AOL Instant Messenger for BlackBerry application, please refer to the support article at KB26171-Discontinuation of AOL Instant Messenger for BlackBerry smartphones

    Please remember to install the new AIM for BlackBerry® application built by AOL before October 28, 2011 in order to continue sending and receiving AIM instant messages on your BlackBerry smartphone.

    Thank you,

    Research In Motion Limited

    Many of the PlayBook games found in App World are very low in graphics or seem to not be rich in content.

    Reckless Racing is a great overhead racing game with rich graphics & a humorous aspect to the game-play.

    Roaring engines, squealing tires and amazing graphics! We know y’all want it and we guarantee that Reckless Racing delivers.

    Reckless Racing mixes old-school racing gameplay with state of the art graphics and multiplayer features to brew a mean gumbo that takes the genre to a whole ‘nother level. Perfectly balanced controls lets you skid, slip and slide through some of the most beautiful tracks ever seen on a handheld device – leaving nothing but mud-splattered opponents, skidmarks and chaos in your wake.

    Looks like the PlayBook will be getting its first ever torrent client! The guys over at Behance Network have done an amazing job with this app. I have seen quite a few apps in the the PlayBook's App World that are simply rushed and unfinished. This one appears to have a nice polished user interface. I actually cant wait to get my hands on this as it looks real solid. Take a look at this video walk-through from BBIN

    InPulse Smartwatch recently received an update to it's firmware & smartphone app to make it OS7 compatible.

    The smartphone app update includes:

    • Finally, working support for OS 7! Tested on BB 9900 and 9810. Our recommendation: Use your old OS5 or 6 Blackberry to load the latest firmware (3.9.4) onto your watch, then you can begin using inPulse with OS 7.
    • Introducing the ability to download free watchapps right to your watch! Browse the inPulse app to see what is available
    • Be sure to update the firmware on your watch after downloading. Download Apps -> Default Notification App -> Load
    • If you happen to get your watch into a non-working state, you can always revert to factory firmware mode by holding the button down until the display says 'loading...'

    The BlackBerry PlayBook has slowly been seeking to establish its presents in just about every market, especially the enterprise market. Mobile Innovations, a company that specializes in integrating mobile solutions within law enforcement operations, has included the PlayBook in its list of mobile solutions.

    The concept behind utilizing the PlayBook is actually really simple; let it do all the work. Here is how it works. The PlayBook can be placed on a mount in the center of the vehicle that also functions as a charger and a USB port replicator. The USB slots can then connect the existing in-car peripherals like the printer, dash mounted drivers license scanner, CAN bus, camera system, SSD in the trunk, and keyboard. the PlayBook is now the central control point for everything in the police cruiser from lights to booking information.

    Looks like BlackBerry App World has made it out of the Beta Zone as of right now. If you head on over to the official app world site you can download version 3.0.1.29 . A few days ago we reported that version 3.0.1.28 was available in the Beta Zone, and that there were quite a few updates. There were a few mixed thoughts on version 3.0.1.28 as many thought it was still a work in progress. With version 3.0.1.29 already available to the public, and released with no change log we can only assume that the changes with .28 have been applied to this release. Could this be the final release that we see for a while? Let us know your thoughts on this version of App World.

    Over the past few weeks it seems as though RIM has gone to great lengths in order to ensure that developers have all the necessary tools to make great apps for BlackBerry devices. RIM has released version 2.2 of their popular WebWorks SDK. There are a few new features so be sure to check it out. Here are some of the changes and new features in this release:
    • Mac OSX Support – Need we say more? This very exciting and highly demanded feature is now available. A Mac version of the WebWorks SDK installer is available for developers to use and build WebWorks applications using OSX.
    • Payment API – the same API that was recently made available for the BlackBerry® WebWorks™ SDK for PlayBook OS can now be used to sell digital goods through WebWorks applications running on BlackBerry Smartphones. This feature gives developers an incredible monetization opportunity for increasing the revenue of their applications. Read more about our payment service.
    • BB7 net_rim_api.jar – The underlying API library used by the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK has been updated to the BlackBerry® 7 developer APIs. This means that WebWorks developers can now create their own JavaScript Extensions and make use of APIs found in BlackBerry Device Software versions 5.0, BlackBerry 6 and BlackBerry 7.
    • BBM APIs – Developers can now find the BlackBerry WebWorks APIs needed to integrate their applications with the BBM Social platform automatically included as part of the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK. Read more about the BBM Social Platform SDK.
    • Side by side installs – The installer has been modified to produce a standalone install of the WebWorks SDK for Smartphone. This feature gives developers the ability to build different versions of their applications based on different versions of the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK, which is often a requirement for supporting production code.
    • Memory leak fixes – many performance and stability improvements have been made to the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK to fix memory problems encountered with WebWorks applications running on BlackBerry 6 and 7 OS smartphones.
    If your a developer and want to check it out you can download it here.

    • New My World Features - My World gives you a streamlined view of all your apps and their status, and now at a glance, in addition to seeing which apps are installed and uninstalled, you can manage your subscription content and services. When new updates or subscription renewals are available for your apps, you’ll be notified using push technology.
    • App Social Sharing - When you find an app you can’t live without, share it with your contacts directly from the app details screen through BBM, Facebook, Twitter, email and SMS.
    • Evolved App Details Screen - At a glance, you can get a quick summary, check out reviews and star ratings, take a look at screen shots, and more.
