CascaRun Pro updated with audio coach and more visual stats

And today, we see an update that brings a nice bunch of new features as well as your usual bug fixes and improvements.

That was back in April this year, so if you missed the opportunity to download it then, you may want to take a look now? Although us BlackBerry 10 users can get our own fix of Cut the Rope in BlackBerry World, you won't find the Time Travel version there. For us it's Android or nothing and considering...

UploadToFlickr now lets you upload a whole folder to your account

UploadToFlickr now lets you upload a whole folder to your account

As with many online services, BlackBerry 10 users need to rely on native developers to bring third party apps to the platform and they do a pretty good job with them too. If you're a Flickr user, you'll know there is no native option. Last year (2014) we reviewed an app that allows you to upload photos to your account. The app hasn't seen much update activity since then but it has seen an...

My-E-Passport-Hero

Unless you're in the UK this won't be of interest, so feel free to move on. But if you're on either the Orange or T-Mobile network I think this one will be right up your street. EE have released a specific app for Orange and T-Mobile users which is slightly different from the already existing 'EE' one in BlackBerry World. Confused? I'll explain.....

BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition captured on video running Android

Before the weekend kicked off, the folks over at 4GNews posted up some images of the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition running Android Lollipop but what most folks missed was that the images were taken from a video.

BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition review!

BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition Box

Let me preface this by saying I never really intended on giving the BlackBerry Passport Silver Edition a full blown review. From the onset, I pretty much considered the device 'just another version of the Passport' and overall I feel I was right in that assumption. It is just another version of the BlackBerry Passport, but it just so happens that it's the nicest version of the BlackBerry...

BlackBerry 'Venice' slider device demo video leaks out

BlackBerry 'Venice' slider device demo video leaks out

As most folks should know from all of the previous leaks in the past, BlackBerry often includes videos on devices as tools for help (how to insert SIM) and often to showcase features available (Time Shift) and it looks as though one of those videos has possibly escaped from the upcoming BlackBerry 'Venice' slider.

Now that there is essentially three different versions of the BlackBerry Passport available for purchase, excluding the color variations which increases that number even further, we figured we should ask which version is preferred amongst our readers. Perhaps you bought the original version but now really, really want the Silver Edition or perhaps, you picked up the AT&T version because it...

BlackBerry 10 users choose BlackBerry World over the Android alternatives

BlackBerry 10 users choose BlackBerry World over the Android alternatives

Last week we ran a poll where we asked "Where do you go first to look for apps? BlackBerry World or an Android store?" To be honest I was expecting the results to be an even mix for various reasons, but how wrong I was, as you'll see below. Roaring into the lead with nearly 83% of the votes was BlackBerry World. Considering all the fuss that was made by us BlackBerry 10 users prior to having...
