If you are in the UK and fancy a bit of free music on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone then you'll want to download O2 Tracks. Surprisingly, you don't even have to be an O2 customer with this one - it's available for all networks, although the video streaming seems to be limited to O2 4G subscribers.
The application is an Android Port and in BlackBerry World it is listed as 'Ad Free' which certainly isn't the case. This isn't an issue at all on the big, touch only devices, but when I tested the app out on my Q10 it became a bit of a hindrance to be honest. But on the upside you are getting music for free.
As you'll see below, there are a nice selection of features and it does pretty much what it says on the tin. Just a wee shame it's not native as some Android ports just don't feel like they belong on my BlackBerry these days. Each to their own though.
Features of the app include:
- Fresh music every day.
- No streaming.
- No data worries.
- Just In Playlist: packed with the hottest new releases and top album tracks.
- The Official Top 40: unlimited plays of the UK's biggest hits.
- Exclusive O2 Playlist - handpicked classics from past and present, refreshed daily.
- Daily celebrity news and gossip.
- Repeat and shuffle playlists.
- Any UK network welcome.
