You ever fumble around in the night looking for the ports on your BlackBerry? I know I can't be the only one who has done it. It's OK to admit it. Well, you'll no longer need to worry about it if you download a new app called Night Ports from File Archive Haven

Night Ports is a beautifully simple native BlackBerry 10 app with a great purpose - show you where your ports are in the dark. Genius! Aside from showing you where your ports are, it will also display your battery life percentage, the time as well as the date. Best part, it's available as a free download from BlackBerry World.

Smart idea! I'll decide get this for those times when turning on the light is not an option.

Yep, just realized this when I opened up BlackBerry World. Hopefully that update comes soon

I was having this problem last night when it turned off the lights and I struggled to connect the charger.

Awesome. Downloaded it and it works like a charm when trying to find that charger port in the dark. Even shows battery percentage. Doesn't even ask for permissions.

I downloaded this just now with my phone still connected to the charger, it's been charging all night and according to this app my charge is at 99%. Must be a bug? My phone says 100% charged in the settings

I downloaded this app with my phone still plugged into the charger, and my phone has been plugged in all night. The app is showing I'm 99% charged where my phone says I'm 100% charged in the settings. Must be a bug?

2 ii and a flashlight app should do that for you... ;)

The developer could add a Camera Flash on/off in the Center Spot of the screen --so that one could point it at the wall to get the other end of the charger plug in...(as it is, one just needs to load a Flashlight App as well)

Talk about coincidence... I was thinking about something like this two nights ago when trying to plug in my Z in the dark (without awakening the wife).

Hahaha! What's up blaze? Thanks for the awesome review! Looks sick on your red Z10. And I thought I'd be only one to find this thing useful. Amazing Dev KermEd!!! FileArchiveHaven!!!!

Ahaha I was confused at first because I was thinking ports as in android ports. I got it once I seen the pictures. I'm just slow this morning :)

Good find. I always hated scratching up the area next to the port by not exactly knowing where it was. My 9900 had battle scars and I wanted to keep the Z10 in a healthy condition.

I'm guessing this is not a headless app (Verizon customer) some of these apps would be great as part of the OS (this, Bebuzz, 360 panorama...etc)

This is genius, I always just stab aimlessly at my phone at night when I am looking for the ports

It sounds like a good app but not for Verizon users yet?? That's a shame but I will keep checking back to see if it available. I need it for sure.

Useful app, but some of the arrows aren't perfectly aligned with the ports!  Developer needs to do some minor adjustments.

Hmm,

So Verizon Users - I might need more information from you.

Appworld lists it as 10.0.0 +, All Carriers, All Countries.

I am using SDK 10.1 --- maybe thats the cause.... not sure. I might need someone from Verizon to email me at the support link with a photo of the error!

KermEd! Wonderful app and just what I needed! So much easier to know I'm putting the charger in the right port! You are AwesomeSauce!! Thank you so much.

A suggestion for All-In-One App here:

The developer could add a Camera Flash on/off in the Center Spot of the screen --so that one could point it at the wall to get the other end of the charger plug in...(as it is, one just needs to load a Flashlight App as well)

Absolutely GENIUS!!! That'll help when I get the Q10. I'll likely need to make my own charging dock of course, so I don't rip out the Usb port. :P

Foam or mould with a space to insert the USB plug can do well. :)
