    Shazam Encore has now become available for more devices in App World. When we first reported about this app becoming available, many users were saying that Shazam was not showing up for them. Be sure to let us know if the app still does not show up for you as we don't have an official list to show which devices Shazam has been updated for.

    Opera Mini is probably one of the best mobile web browsers out there right now. I use it all the time to open websites that the native BlackBerry browser cannot open. It has always had a slick user interface with lots of customization options. It is also very quick when compared to the native browser.

    Opera Mini has been updated to version 6.5. This is actually a major update as it add quite a few new things for BlackBerry users. One of the more signification updates include the addition of multitouch support for OS 6.0 and newer devices.

    Any app that makes my life (or rather, email reading) more simplistic is something I welcome with open hands. Show Me The Images was updated today to v1.3.42, which now brings official support for BlackBerry 7.

    I've unofficially use the app on my 9900 for the last few months without any issues, so it's great to see them officially update it so that everyone knows it's safe to use with their BlackBerry 7 devices.

    Show Me The Images automatically downloads images in your e-mails without you needing to hit that "Get Images" menu item. You can disable it, download based on a safe list of e-mail addresses (default) or download no matter who the contact is.

    Accuweather for BlackBerry has finally been updated. This update (v1.3) brings support for OS7 devices. This was my favorite weather app when I had my BlackBerry Bold 9780. I'm quite excited to see it available now for my 9900, but with several other BlackBerry 7 weather apps being launched weeks ago, I'm not sure if many will revert to this app.

    AccuWeather for BlackBerry includes:

    • Local forecasts for all global locations. Updated every hour, forecasts include twelve hours of accurate, localized forecasts along with twelve days of detailed, day-by-day, weather forecasts and information – all available in English, French, Italian, German, or Spanish.
    • AccuWeather trademarked WeatherAlarms™ display on days forecasted for high amounts of snow, ice, rain, wind, and thunderstorms.
    • Push alerts for severe weather watches and warnings (U.S. only), such as snow and ice, rain and thunderstorms, high winds, and tornadoes. With push alerts, users receive an automatic notice that there is a severe weather alert for the last location searched for in the application. Users have the option of selecting a quiet time for warnings choosing whether the phone is quiet, makes an audible tone, illuminates, or vibrates when alerted.
    • Users can customize which current weather conditions are displayed including wind and wind gust speed, wind direction, humidity percentages, UV index, visibility, pressure, dew point, and cloud cover.
    • Users can choose to receive a daily weather forecast in their message inbox and/or a five-day forecast integrated in your calendar.
    • Multiple weather views including videos, and zoomable animated radar and satellite with Bing maps.
    • Special weather information for travelers, including a hotel finder and airport travel delay notices.
    • Special lifestyle weather and health forecasts, such as conditions for specific outdoor activities and sports, including lawn mowing, dog walking, and golfing, and health-related weather forecasts, such as UV forecasts and weather conditions for people suffering from allergies.
    • Customizable, continually updated Snapshot View with the ability to access a range of features in one easy-to-access display screen, including current conditions and weather warnings for up to 20 of your saved locations.
    • Option of choosing between metric or English units.
    • Colorful and easy-to-use interface for a simple and intuitive navigation.

    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:
