BlackBerry App Roundup for March 28, 2014


First thing for me: productivity apps and business tools.

Still no proper invoicing and payment apps, like


(Australian market) or credit card apps. Anyone found something, please let me know.

Please BB, make auto-correct more context-sensitive, so this doesn't happen that frequently

Agreed!!! We say it is the best out there, but it still could be better. I mean, I really don't have time to read what I wrote before hitting send; I'm way too busy. ;)

Tapped and flicked from my BlackBerry Z30!

I rather spend my time on CB, than playing games on my phone.

It took a few seconds of my life, you know how fast one can type on a BlackBerry, right?

(If you don't, this is proof enough, I hope, and that's why I've done it, not to annoy someone :-) )

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

@ drmike By the way, I'm not a touchscreen guy (yet), but the above was posted from my Z, slowy getting there...

Don't believe I could have done that on any other platform. I don't.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Loving Body Buddy. Such a simple concept but implemented well. The feeling of accountability to yourself it gives you is helpful.

Oh my god. GPodder. I used to have it on my N9 and it is just fantastic.

Glad to see it on the BB10 platform.

Job Guru, while being a nice idea is of no use outside of the US of A, which makes it useless in the real world.

I had gPodder at my Nokia N900 and at the N9. A great application by a very talented developer. 5 stars!

I am still looking up to when I can download the LimichSoft program LSChess.

Why can't I get it for my Q5?

JobGuru, contrary to comment above, works for me In Toronto.

One quibble with original article: gPodder not available for (my) PlayBook

As a long time BlackBerry user, one of my greatest concerns is security of my data. I imagine that to be a priority to most BlackBerry users since I view BlackBerry as the first choice for business application.

I would like to request from CrackBerry staff that all software reviews not only highlight the features and shortcomings of how an app performs but that you also make it an standard practice to include some security analysis as well. Is building a photo diary going to result in my photos rights being reassigned to the App developer or to the phone company? If I use a certain Password Keeper app, how secure is it? Is there a back door built in that the developer could exploit to get into my Amazon account? If I use the Facebook app, how is the phone company and Facebook using my info? What should I avoid? (I don't use Facebook by the way).

I personally would welcome a security facet being included with each app review.
