BlackBerry World when it was known as BlackBerry App World was launched on April 1st, 2009 and this year marks its 5th birthday. To celebrate, BlackBerry is offering up five free premium apps from developers. 

Celebrate with us - it's like cake, but it lasts longer. 5 FREE birthday downloads just for you! From March 31st to April 4th, BlackBerry 10 and and BlackBerry OS users can visit BlackBerry World and be treated to 5 premium apps and game downloads.

The apps and games will likely vary depending on device and region but they're there and available for download. If you're not seeing them yet, hang tight as they might still be filtering through. Tilt, InstaVenue, Doodle Jump, Uno, Scan to Text and more are included. A nice way to celebrate. Happy Birthday BlackBerry World!

I too purchased InstaVenue. It's okay. I'm glad to see it in the list. Others will enjoy it.
People should find the first three apps very useful.

Damn free apps.
Looks like I wont sleep tonight
Edit:
Just got tilt

Cula

And I bought InstaVenue yesterday :/

But then again, I like the app and it's well worth it. Aside, BlackBerry has been giving out a number of good free apps before so there's no need to feel bad :)

PantherBlitz

Fantastic gifts. Thanks Blackberry! Does Scan to Text include the watermark remover? If not, it is not truly free as it requires an in-app purchase for full functionality.

JordanLehigh

ya it does have watermark and asks you to purchase the unlock. which i wanted to do be cause it appeared to work great but all i get is an error. it's frustrating that its not fully free but i would pay for it anyways.

grapenuts

It's a great app and very handy, but not really free if you have to pay to have the watermark removed. Kinda shady way to give a gift...

I paid the $1 to get the watermark removed because I needed the app...grudgingly.

So if I were to purchase scan 2 text I would then have to pay AGAIN to remove the water mark thing?

At least the ocr part is free for now, so that's one expense you won't have to worry about.

Yeah, productivity app!

Tilt is a cool concept, I just wish I could use other tiles instead.

Scan to Text has the watermark still in, remover needs to be purchased separately.

Graheem

That's lame. It's a paid app that's supposed to be free. Cheeky. Oh well, other free apps here and this past xmas, all in all good deal.

Thanks BlackBerry. :)

Just downloaded Tilt, but I can't really figure out the utility of this app. Not only is it awkward to use when in tilt mode (I never hold my phone in that angle), but it also contains irrelevant information for me (e.g. weather and places) and can hardly be customised. Can someone explain this app to me? I'm really curious. :-)

LostOnThePianoRoll

It was made as more of a concept actually, the real functionality and customization is yet to come according to the dev

Kinda agree. I'm sure some find them useful, just think maybe some apps you'd find in the top 25 would have been nice.

Like so many others here, I find I've already downloaded the apps in this list that I would use. Felt a bit robbed for a moment, but then thought better of it. These giveaways are part of the reason I remain loyal to BlackBerry - it's only a small token, but still feels to me as though my support must be worth it (in my mind anyway) .

Just call it... revolutionary OS, lol.
Concerning to the "Gifts", thanks... but no thanks.

How is that insulting? Price discounts on the Z10 are inevitable...

Prem WatsApp

It's a year old device. Phones have a product cycle of, well ... about or exactly one year (see iPhone, and they keep their value more)

Scan to text is not actually free. CrackBerry should include the watermark remover too to consider it part of the "free" app giveaway.

Nice to get a few freebies. I ALMOST bought In staleness the other day, but held off. Still...

You know someone at BlackBerry really hates the PlayBook when even BBOS 6 devices get tossed a bone and the PlayBook gets nothing.

I can see why some of these are free. Tilt..100% useless. Uno.. seriously? I have a BBRY "to get things done." same for "Jump."... "Insta view"... like I want a font that takes over 30% of my photo to tell folks where the photo was and the weather. The photo itself should tell you that. That's why you take them.... erased...

On the otherhand BBRY thank you, thank you, for letting me have these for free so that I could see that I was originally correct in not buying these.

YMMV.

Update: Scan to text appears to require you to pay to save it as .pdf.... "flush!!"... and we are 5 for 5 to the trash bucket.

DoryGuy

hahaha! No just glad that I didn't pay for these terrible bits of software.

Reminds me another giveaway from BBOS7... shitload of crappy apps.
Just wondering if these are Chen's new "methods" to grab some fresh money... rofl.

Nice of blackberry to do this but these apps are useless, i guess they picked apps that no one wants rather than putting good stuff out

Scan to Text Puts a watermark on every PDF so you still have to pay for the app.

Had only one app yet, from the five. What a welcome surprise.

I cannot download anything.
If I go in the section, I find only 3 of them (Scan to text, Uno and Instavenue) and they are on price, as usual. If I choose one, I can buy it for its regular price.

My BlackBerry ID is correct. Can anyone help me? Thanks.
