If you're in the US and just picked up a new BlackBerry Q10, you've probably been spending some time (okay a few hours) looking for the best apps to install. We're sure you've found quite a few but there is one you certainly don't want to forget - the award-winning CrackBerry 10 app!

Fans of CrackBerry know that the most important app for any BlackBerry 10 device is CB10. With the app you can keep up with all of the CrackBerry happenings not matter where you are as long as you have your Q10 in-hand.

There have been plenty of enhancements made to the app just for the BlackBerry Q10, so if you have yet to download it you should certainly do so (it's FREE!). 

Q10 users will have optimizations such as a dark theme, keyboard shortcuts, collapsing action bars and much more. CB10 is the best way to keep up with CrackBerry on the go for everything from reading the news to checking forums and even buying accessories. You can find out more and see the app in action in our full walkthrough

While you're scouring BlackBerry World and looking for apps, don't forget you can also check out our new CrackBerry App Gallery for an easy way to see all of our editor picks for the top BlackBerry 10 apps and games. Why waster time searching when we've done all the hard work for you? App Gallery support is coming soon to CB10 as well - how's that for awesome?!

I got my Q10 on Monday, it was the first App I loaded. Really love the Q10, its my personal device. Still have the 9930 until the company issue Q10s or can accommodate a Q10 as a BYOD.

CB10 is a must have app for sure. Love it and use it everyday. I wake up to checking my CB10 app everyday. Then I check the stocks. Then back to work. Peace.

Posted via CB10 on a Q10 or a Z10, either way it's golden.

Also, CB10's BlackBerry-ness is award winning as well as buttery smooth. Definitely a benchmark for other apps to strive for.

That's right Adam! The CB app is the only app I open first thing in the morning when I wake up to see what new articles you guys have wrote and of course through out the day till I go to sleep. Nothing better than knowing the latest on BlackBerry news!!!

How about giving us a black theme for the Z10? Why won't you devs do this?

I know it's not as special as Thor being your first phone call and all, but when I got my White Verizon Q10 last Friday CrackBerry 10 was the first app I downloaded immediately!!

The Q10 has the most awkward keypad idk if it was because it was on display or what the case was but ya, so happy I grabbed the Z10 lol. =]

Since everyone who buys a blackberry 10 device downloads this app.
CrackBerry can probably tell how many phones have been sold.

Any news / rumors about any other Qwerty BB 10 devices for next year?

I'm still enjoying my #GlobeBlackBerryZ10withLTE but my BlackBerry Bold 9900 needs to retire. Soon.

Kevin, in the spirit of the Mobile Nations community, I would love to see a native BB10 version of the Android Central app. Any chance of this happening?

Just picked up my Q today the first thing I did after setting up emails of course was install CB10 app!

I switched from Z10 to Q10 but the app wouldn't work (I think wasn't then optimised for Q10) and I tried to delete and re-install, but now it has disappeared but is still showing on BB World! Any suggestions? It is obviously a ghost app.
