Howdy CrackBerry nation! It's been a mighty fine week here for BlackBerry what with the BBM Private Beta rolling out for Windows Phone users, the BlackBerry Q10, Q5, and Z30 earning Red Dot design awards, and, of course, reasons why the Passport is the device for you. All in all, not bad if I do say so myself.

We all know you are here to see what this week's picks are so let's get back to the show shall we. Each app or game can be seen by clicking through the gallery. If your favorite did not make the cut this week, remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.
