Apps, Apps, Apps! Going into BlackBerry Live last week, one of the things I think everybody in the CrackBerry community was hoping to see was the announcement of more BIG name apps coming onto the BlackBerry 10 platform.
Leading up to the show and with the launch of OS 10.1, we now have Skype on BB10. For me, that's the most important of the big three apps -- Skype, Instagram, Netflix -- that the CrackBerry community has been clamoring about for months.
Netflix we've been talking about a lot here on the site this week. Following comments by their CEO that he hasn't yet used a BB10 device and he didn't think BB users were very entertainment focused, the community has been up in arms, going so far as to cancel their Netflix accounts in protest.
As for Instagram? While a new "unofficial" bar file conveniently leaked onto the internet during BlackBerry Live last week, on the keynote stage no update was given about Instagram. If the plan here is to initially bring over a version from Android that requires the Jellybean Android runtime update on BB10, this makes sense - that's still a little ways off. Either way though, the waiting for Instagram sucks. I'm glad the .bar file is out there and available for BB10 owners who really want to get their Instagram on, but I really, really, really want to see this app gap close and for Instagram to get onboard officially, and sooner than later!
I should have announced the winner on this sooner (honestly, I kind of forgot about it being in NYC and all the #TM13 stuff happening and nobody reminded me!), but today we'll announce the winner of that first contest.
And the winner is....
Congrats! We'll be following up soon with the details of collecting your prize!
Another "Car" to be Won - Just leave a comment to this post!
While the waiting for "official" Instagram continues, we're going to give the community another chance to win another Team Associated "10" vehicle here. To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment to this post. The deadline? Well, I'd say until Instagram gets here.... but in case that's going to take a long time still I don't want to drag out the waiting forever. Plus, you'll want to be racing your truck outside in the summer. So let's pick the winner on this one on the last day of June. We'll announce the winner the first week of July. Don't let me forget this time! Best of Luck
