We're back from BlackBerry Jam and the BlackBerry spirit is running through me. I'm all BB10'd up now and can't wait for what comes in the next few months. There were so many awesome devs in San Jose that I'm sure we'll see some amazing stuff for BlackBerry 10 devices. I really do love conferences and I'm pumped now more than ever for BlackBerry - the vibe this year was just amazing. For now however, I've rounded up some of the best new apps this week that are worth checking out, so keep reading to see what I found. 

Biff Soundboard 

Biff Soundboard 

This one is kind of cheesy, but being a huge BTTF fan I just couldn't resist. The Biff Soundboard features over 100 Biff sound clips for your listening (and mildly annoying) pleasure. "Chicken", "Say hi to your mom for me" and "Butthead" are a few of my favorites. This one is $0.99 in BlackBerry App World.

Umbrlla 

Umbrlla 

Umbrlla is a simple Tumblr app for BlackBerry. With no OS 7 support from the official app, this one fills the void nicely. With it you can create posts, browse your dashboard, reblog posts, read messages and more. It has a straight up interface and seems to work pretty well overall. If you're looking for a good app to get your Tumblr on, this is one of the better options. $0.99 in App World.

It was an app called InstaRand. Kind of like Chatroulette, but with photos. You submit a random photo and get one in return. Pretty cool app.
