Howdy CrackBerry nation! Are you all ready for the weekend? After this week I certainly am. No sooner had I read the announcement that OS 10.3.2 and Blend 1.2 would be available for all devices than I found the update on my BlackBerry Passport. For those of you still waiting for the rollout, OS 10.3.2.798 update files are now available. Last, but certainly not least, the American Customer Satisfaction Index published a survey that shows BlackBerry customer satisfaction in the US is growing faster than other brands. Not a bad way to end the week if I do say so myself.
Now it's time to bring you this week's picks for all your passionate BlackBerry addicts out there. You can find each app and game I've rustled up for you by clicking through the gallery below. If your favorite did not make the cut this week, remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.
Umbrella by Eugene Popov
If you are searching for an application or game to check out, our forums are the perfect place to discover new ones. I happened to come across this native application and, of course, had to see what it was about. Umbrella is a simple application to keep you apprised of the latest weather conditions in your area. Using information from the Weather Underground service, it provides daily, 10-day, and hourly (for 36 hours) forecasts for any city. For those in the US and Europe you can receive severe weather alerts with hub notifications. It also offers the ability to set the weather update interval, set custom background and foreground, and shows a list of favorite cities and weather stations. The interface is fast and clean and allows for customization. Being able to use my own images as the background is what makes this stand out. You can try Umbrella for free by searching in BlackBerry World. The link to the premium version is shown below and it is $1.99 to download for BlackBerry 10.
