Howdy CrackBerry Nation! Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday so far and getting ready for the weekend. It's time once again for the weekly App Roundup. Now I spent my time wisely this week rustling up some new, cool, and helpful applications for all you BlackBerry addicts to try. Be sure to check them out and remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.

PicsArt - Photo Studio by SOCIALIN, INC

A reader suggested this photo editing and art community application and I must say it doesn't disappoint. To be honest, this is an android port but while some may balk it performs quite well on my Z10 though I use OS 10.2. Amateur photographers will enjoy the plethora of artistic photo frames and manipulating effects such as masks, frames, borders, stickers, overlays, and the ability to create free form or grid collages. This all-in-one collection applies effects instantly with the option of sharing to PicsArt's community, the SD card or to your linked social networks. There is also an option to submit your snapshots and subsequent drawings to their photo contests. For a free application it is certainly worth a try. Personally, I rotate amongst several photo apps depending on my needs and this fits in nicely.You can find it at the link for the BlackBerry Z10 and Z30.

Fire Chest Backup by Sasha Kanthan 

One of the features I miss from BBOS was the backup capabilities of BlackBerry Protect. Fire Chest Backup aims to fill that void for users. While the free version only supports Dropbox (by manually logging in) it easily saves and restores your data to the cloud for your calendar, camera, contacts (text based fields only), documents, downloads and Remember entries. Additional cloud services, SD card support, and backups of additional items are planned in a future paid release. For added security, users may opt for 256-bit AES encryption when uploading. As a side note, while the app redirects you to Dropbox to enter in login details it does not see your password and only has access to the backup folder it creates. It supports all BlackBerry 10 devices.

Sitebook and Sitebook Free by Kate Swasing

For PlayBook owners seeking to organize their bookmarks, Sitebook is a simple yet functional application. From the developer that brought you the Willow Twitter app, it allows you to create and organize your website bookmarks, notes, and tasks. Simply launch and swipe and all are accessible at your fingertips. Users can also create custom categories, filter by category, and backup or restore. The PlayBook version is free to download, however, the 'Built for BlackBerry' BackBerry 10 version will run you $.99.

Money One by HUT Mobile Solution

As the holiday season descends upon us, we want to make sure we don't break the bank on our purchases. This personal finance management app helps you keep track of your income, expenses, and transactions. With its clean UI, it supports multiple accounts and currencies, imports and exports data to a CSV file, creates recurring transactions, sets up notification alerts in the hub, and includes a dashboard with a handy bar chart to oversee all of your accounts. Money One is user-friendly and collects detailed information to help manage your budget for $1.99 for BlackBerry 10 handsets.

Danger Dash by Gameloft

Have a BBOS device and looking for some fun action? Look no further than this graphically pleasing gem. This running game comes with smooth and vibrant graphics as you run for your life as Chuck Ace, the adventurer girl Miranda Rose or Blowing Wind. There are all sorts of obstacles users can dodge, jump, and go through to complete missions. With its responsive controls and decent sound effects and music you can grab this for free from BlackBerry World. It is compatible with the Blackberry 8520, 9220, 9300/20/60/80, 9500/20, 9700/80/90, 9800/10, and 9900/30.

What You Might Have Missed

Clicker by Jeffrey Maltez

If you are looking to turn your device into a remote control for your networked players then this application is right up your alley. It integrates several systems all into one application and even offers access to your streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, and Pandora. Not only does it offer audible and vibration feedback for screen touches, easy media player setup via UPnP discover, and dark and light theme support but it is also compatible with the BlackBerry PlayBook in addition to BlackBerry 10 devices. You can find it in the store for $2.99 and offers a convenient way to control your players.

I'm using it since it was released. It's a lot better than it's initial release. Still some bugs to iron out. But overall, a great app :)
