Flipp brings Flyers and Weekly Ads straight to your device

Although I'm a big fan of Reebee, it hasn't had an update in.. well, forever as far as I can recall and as sad as it sounds, one of my guilty pleasures is actually reading through the flyers each week to see what's on sale and if there's any good deals out there to be had. Pro Tip: There's not but I still look every week through my favorite shops. A new option has arrived in BlackBerry World...

From the forums: The Q80i BlackBerry 10 concept

Q80i

It's concept time again - another from CrackBerry forum member Andreas Kimishis1 who also recently added the BlackBerry slider S50 concept. Although I'm all for a hardware keyboard device with a bigger screen I'm not so keen on this one purely down to its height. Of course, it's only a mockup, but as always it's nice to get some feedback from the CrackBerry community.  With a BlackBerry...

How to color code messages with BlackBerry OS 10.2.1

Color coding messages in the BlackBerry Hub isn't totally new with OS 10.2.1, but it may well be one of those features that as a BlackBerry 10 user you weren't aware of.

Apple now has CarPlay, why can't QNX do the same for all phones and all cars?

Apple now has CarPlay, why can't QNX do the same for all phones?

Today Apple made CarPlay official. Automobile makers who support the technology will essentially be implementing a way for drivers to interact with their iPhone through the car's infotainment system, which includes the car's touch screen, microphone, buttons, etc. It's important to point out that the cars are not running iOS. Apple would probably never license iOS to anyone, so we're really...
