Ablative Air now free for BlackBerry 10 - Get it while it's on sale

Ablative Air

Back on October 2013 we featured a video review of Ablative Air for all-touch BlackBerry 10 devices. I just happened to notice that the game has lost its $1.99 price tag, although I'm sure this is only temporary, but if you liked what you saw but were put of by the price, now's the perfect time to give the game a go.  The concept of Ablative Air is to protect the space station that orbits the...

Z3 BlackBerry World

Look what I spotted in BlackBerry World today - the BlackBerry Z3. We know of course that the low cost, Foxconn made device is meant to hit Indonesia later in April and judging by the device now being in BlackBerry World it looks like things are full steam ahead.  The BlackBerry Z3 (aka "Jakarta") ​at under $200 could be a real deal breaker for BlackBerry 10. Don't get too excited just yet...

Buying BBM Stickers

Ok, I take back ALL the mean things I said about BBM stickers. I kinda, actually, LOVE THEM! Honestly, BlackBerry was smart to give away the WWE BBM stickers free of charge for a limited time. I pretty much reply to every BBM I receive now with The Ultimate Warrior. Beyond the freebie sticker packs, I've also been purchasing the other for sale ones, like Bubble Bot and Cos Cat (don't judge me...

Dropped BlackBerry

Just how far would you go to get your BlackBerry back? At times many of us have left them behind in a cab or at a restaurant, or maybe even dropped it in the toilet. But has it ever been dropped somewhere that made you think twice about trying to get it back? Maybe 16-year-old Ella Birchenough should have thought about it a bit more after she dropped her BlackBerry in a storm drain. She...

CrackBerry Asks: Would you like a choice of color accents in BlackBerry 10.3?

I’m sure you all saw our recent hands on with an early LEAKED version of BlackBerry OS 10.3 (we like saying the word LEAKED around here - it's fun!).

It's not a new app but we haven't taken the time to look at the app before, so join me as we create...
