1000 free copies of Alpha Browser for CrackBerry readers!

Alpha Browser
By James Richardson on 11 Jul 2014 06:09 am EDT

You may remember that a short while back we gave away 500 copies of Web Splitter for BlackBerry 10. They got snapped up pretty darn quickly so this time around the developer, TZapps, is offering a whopping 1000 copies of Alpha Browser free of charge to CrackBerry readers - good on him!

We first took a look at the alternative browser back in April and it does a sweet job.

The offer will run until July 16th - although I suspect all copies will go today! To get your free edition just follow these steps:

  • Find Alpha Browser in BlackBerry World

  • Pull down from the top bezel and select 'Redeem'

  • Enter the code TZapps1000 and you then won't be charged to download the browser - sweet!

Features include:

  • 100% Native cascades application

  • Tabs support

  • Bookmarks

  • Home page with search function

  • Bing image of the day background

  • Use swipe gestures to switch tabs

  • Ad blocker - Privacy settings

  • BBM Connected

  • Active Frame

  • Share

  • Invokable

  • Use this browser as the default browser

  • User agents -Instant share webpage screenshot

  • Keyboard Shortcuts for BlackBerry Q10/ BlackBerry Q5

  • Custom clock

Let us know what you think of it compared to the BB10 browser? And let's continue to support our native app developers.

Update: All 1000 copies went within the hour. If you still want to use Alpha Browser you can download it for $2.99

1000 free copies of Alpha Browser for CrackBerry readers!



I tried the browser on cbc.ca, can't even select the desktop version of the site because of those 3 button bellow the page, bb10 browser ftw

Ugh, missed it again! And it's only 730 in Calgary... Maybe Crackberry should wait until a little later in the day to post things like these to give everyone a chance to grab a copy...

Yeah... I'll just get up two hours early every morning in case there's a promo code for a BlackBerry App. Flawless idea.

Posted via CB10

I can use redeem right in BB WORLD without searching for the app and the code finds the app for me. Cool.

Thank you! If we could have privacy add-ons in a mobile browser like forefox (https everywhere, privacy badger, etc.) that would be awesome.

Posted via my beautiful Q10

Awesome, pretty unique browser and you can make it full-screen, active frame works minimized as well

Posted via CB10

Dude, for the love of God follow the instructions! Top down click redeem and enter TZapps1000...

Go leafs... :)

Posted using the best phone ever, the Z30!

CB nation ftw!!! 870 dlds in 50 minutes. Not bad. 130 copies left. I will update when finished. Thank you all for downloading. Keep the feedback coming. App reviewing, here, forum, or email.

Thanks for the generous offer!!! So far it looks very good. Will put it through the paces some more today.

Does it support flash content?

Edit: Nevermind. I was trying to watch a stream on twitch.tv and video was not working, i changed to IE Mobile mode and now it works

Just got it. I've only had about 5 mins to play with it but out seems snappier than the bb10 browser so far

finally i get an app for free here on crackberry, i'm always too late for the party. but not this time :D

Thanks, dev!
Next time, I'll wake up early enough to get it lol.
Nice promotion!

Frosty white Q10/

Damn, I was able to enter the code and the price was changed to free, but on loggin in I had to pay. A miss of a split-second. :(

Wow that was fast... all gone already... bummer

Posted via the best damn phone currently available... the almighty amazing incredible Zed30.... on the best network ( Bell) on the best site (Crackberry) there did I brown nose enough to win a contest???

Already gone 1000 in 1 hour this has to be highlighted somewhere. APP developers need to know this kind numbers. BlackBerry 10 is growing and crackberrians will go get your product if you give them a nice offer.

Posted from my flagship Z30

Just downloaded it. Will see who it compares to in utility with the native browser. May use both of them alternately.

Posted via CB10 on my Z30

OK missed it. Never get the free ones. Someone post how good it is. Not that I am going to pay 2.99 for it.

Posted via CB10

Thanks for nothing. You made this open for the east coast time zone only. When this article was released it was at 4 am for me. No bias to the east coast whatsoever, right!

Posted via CB10

Ha ha. You craven bunch of MFs! ;).

Well done, I'm just jealous of course.

Posted via the inimitable Z10 handheld system.

does this one prevent to play embedded videos (vine etc.) to play in full screen on Q10?

Posted via CB10

Maybe you should wait to post these kind of things until all of North America is awake?!?!? Anyone living on the west coast would "never" have a chance to use the promo... although I suppose CrackBerry is somewhat of a Global website... anyway...

If the native browser was not so rock solid and capable I may look to adding another to my apps but as it sits. Why add more and get less?

Posted via CB10 on my Q10

On the West Coast, napped after dinner and happened to wake up and see this 22 minutes in, so got it. Maybe that's the strategy? ;)

Wow .. .these go too fast. Would be nice if they could segregate some of the freebies by region so that everyone has a chance.

I got mine, for the first time. :)) Thanks for the developer.

Bummer...missed out again, but Thanks Dev. TZapp. for the LOVE YOUR AWESOME!!!!

Posted via my FABULOUS z10

Missed it, dammit!

But unlike some of the those here, I appreciate the offer and bought it anyway because of their offer. Developers need to be supported and we need to appreciate things like this even if I wasn't one of the lucky ones. But unfortunately narcissistic people and narcissistic behaviour is so common in places like this. I choose to be nice instead! Thanks!

Z30 Rocks!

All coupons used.
Thanks for your service though.
I really feel for BB10 developers who have been left hanging dry.

Just saw this article and I'm too late. The usual!!!! Not paying for another web browser. BlackBerry's web browser is sufficient thank-you.

Posted via CB10

Dang, I missed out. Oh well, it's a good sign that there's interested in BlackBerry native apps.

Posted via CB10

This app is absolutely a great for devices with full screen. Q10 and 5, please don't bother. It will be a waste of time and money. Fyi

" Initiated from my QNX10 "

Can it play flash already?

Posted via z30 STA100-5 the only high end business device on the market

Bah, again too late and I'm not going to buy it before I can test it, native browser is good enough.
