Looking for a new way to keep up to date on your social feeds and news? If so, Gazzet might be the app for you. We've featured Gazzet before here on CrackBerry but since then it has gone through many changes and improvements from its early release stages and is now a pretty solid app that's not only great looking but incredibly useful as well thanks to the Feedly, Twitter and Reddit integration.
Although I really hate to compare Gazzet to an already existing app, if you're familiar with Flipboard you'll notice the resemblance here. The difference, of course, is that Gazzet is a native BlackBerry 10 app that feels right at home on any BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Gazzet essentially takes everything from whatever accounts you tie in, be it Feedly, Twitter or Reddit and presents it to you in a magazine style that you can interact with.
Tweets, for example, can be replied to, shared or favorited plus, it also shows all embedded data, so web pages will load, images will load and more. Feedly subscriptions can also be read and shared right within Gazzet thanks to the built-in browser or they can be opened up directly in the BlackBerry 10 browser. All the same for Reddit as well, once logged in you have a pretty sweet Reddit browser that offers a great way to view content from there as well as access your account.
Overall, Gazzet is a pretty great app to have on your device, especially if you're looking to keep up-to-date on everything that's happening. Gazzet normally costs $2.99 in BlackBerry World but the developer behind it, Justin, has decided to give away 1,000 free copies for CrackBerry readers, so now is the chance to give it a go and see how you like it with no out of pocket expense to you. Just open up BlackBerry World, swipe from the top, go to Redeem and enter in code GAZZETCB. Once the 1,000 copies are gone, the code will no longer work. PS: If you scoop up a copy, be sure to thank the dev and leave a review!
