No offense to anyone, but seriously why doesn't BlackBerry have some really good free apps. I am not talking about big time apps (Facebook, Twitter, Evernote...etc). come to think of it, we don't even have a free Native google maps app. Which means people like me living in Asian countries don't have any mapping software (BlackBerry maps doesn't have map data for most Asian countries).

i have saved the google maps webpage from the Blackberry browser to my desktop (did that after having logged in) and I have to say it works pretty good as the page loads like an app even through the browser.

You can install Google Maps through Snap app if you a have 10.2.1 or higher.

Posted on my awesome Z10 (STL100-3,

Love the App round up. As a Z10 user, sometimes a bit of nostalgia kicks in haha I miss that old style theme of the BB6 on my blackberry Curve 8550 hehe
But BB10 rocks too

I found a similar app, it's called Planets, currently V1.1 by Dana Peters.... it has 4,5 stars and it's free and simple to use. you can find it on BBW.

Alicia. Any idea what is the total app count for BlackBerry 10? Last time we heard it was 135k
Just wondering if developers have lost interest or the other way round and BlackBerry have caught up!

Can you review my app Carlulu, which is a car lover's all for BB owners? It records car services and gas fill-ups. Thx

I have 5 Gmail accounts and just downloaded "posta"

Very very nice... it color codes the 1st letter of all your contacts and message threads ,

Z10, official Digicel

You should do a review and give spotlight to Vocabuilder, a great vocabulary and dictionary app. It's unparalleled !

Really not a big fan of these new multiple page articles that really need not be multiple page articles.

If this is the state of CrackBerry to come, count me out.
