BlackBerry App Roundup for August 8, 2014


FYI, Check was bought by Mint/Intuit and will be integrated into Mint somehow in the future.

Loving the Quicklie for Google app. Finally a Blackberry app I like to access my Google plus account. I gladly paid the $1.06

I want a Z50

Has anyone used Mint? I'm currently using Track My Stuff for budgeting and expense tracking, which works great has lots of great functions and is like 4 apps in one. But I'm always open to options and trying new apps.

I use Mint, but mainly just for checking my accounts at a glance. I don't think it has any other worthwhile use. I use the Quicken mobile app for any "heavy duty" financial stuff I need/want to do on the go.

I've used Check (formerly Pageonce) for years on BB. It's a free Android port available from BB World.

I know Mint is hugely popular, but I've yet to hear anything it does better than Check.
Anyone used both that can tell me how Mint is better?

Regarding the Quicklie for Google app, does anyone know if the YouTube section "connects" to Smart TVs, as the Web version does?

Loved the Q10 but now it's Z30 power time!!!

Mint is an awesome app! Highly recommend.

Swiped via CB10 with my T-Mobile USA (Only T-Mo rep still pushing  ) new  BlackBerry Z30 (STA100-5), son! The Thor's Hammer of phones! Member of "Club Z30 "..... the most exclusive club in mobile. Once you go BlackBerry, everything else is wack-berry! #longestsignatureeverthatishortenedabit

if KeePass is free, why does it cost $2 here? where's the logic?

the world is coming to an end. please log off

KeePassB is a paid app because it took time and effort to create it. There are free alternatives, if you prefer.

Mint is no good for anyone in the UK. I use Easy Money. It's a bit laggy but it does what I want.

I obviously haven't tried it in UK myself, but have you checked out Check? (Pardon the pun!)
