CrackBerry App Roundup: BBM integrated apps for BlackBerry smartphones

Photo Studio updated to version; adds BBM integration

Photo Studio update

The last time I mentioned Photo Studio was in September of last year, when it was in a three-way battle against InstaPhoto and FilterLab. Looking at the comments, it appeared as though Photo Studio was the favorite. For a free application, it sure did pack a punch. It has over 60 various types of filters and effects to scroll through as well as options to reduce redeye or manipulate the image (resize, rotate or crop). The PRO version of Photo Studio gave you even more frames and effects to check out. Whether you pick up the free or PRO version, you’ll find that Photo Studio is one of the most robust image editing applications made available. The only thing that held me back from picking it as the winner at the time was the fact that I couldn’t easily share my photos; it wasn’t connected to any social apps like BBM. At the time, Photo Studio was in beta and has since been updated. Now, without leaving the application, you can share a BBM contact/Group or through social networking apps you may have installed. Speaking of updates, the application was currently updated to v. Check out what’s new.

New features in this update:

  • BM Connected, now you can share your photo directly from Photo Studio.
  • New 55 frames in Christmas Pack 1 and Christmas Pack 2.
  • New effects in Effects Pack (Sharpen and 6 Lens effects).
  • New output formats: normal and large, save photos with better quality.
  • Crop improvements with several selection modes.
  • UI improvements, bug-fix and more.

Keep in mind that, in order to get access to the new Filter Pack, or the Christmas Frames Packs, you need to install them separately, and purchase the PRO version for $2.99, You can grab either version of Photo Studio from BlackBerry App World,

Have it and love it, also paid for the PRO version to support the developers on a very well made application!


I agree - there needs to be a Playbook version of this software.


How does stack up against Photo Editor Ultimate? The one that RIM offers for free last year?


Much much nicer, way more filters and tools, way better interface and it's nice and quick. Well, on a 9900 anyways...i seem to remember not being a fan of it on my 9870.


Better!!! easier to use then the FREE one that RIM gave out!


I just installed the PRO version. The GUI is a lot of intuitive than Photo Ultimate Editor (PUE) in my opinion.
I uninstalled PUE.


This post made it sound like there was a newer version out. I've had this since the 16th of December. It is a great app and the free one I had (PUE) was uninstalled as soon as I tried this one. I also have the PRO version...


Love it. It works well on my 9800.

I too thought this was a new release, because of the timing of the article, but hey, it doesn't matter, because I have the PRO version, and it's so easy and intuitive to use.

Didn't worked !!!

I installed it . Didn't work together Photo Editor ultimate . I clicked on logo Photo studio and the BB stop for reopen. I tried it many times .
I uninstaled it for gp ahead with my BB 9780

Any feedback from others crackberrry users ?


I like this app. I bought the pro version, but unfortunately I haven't been able to update the last couple versions. It basically does nothing if I try to upgrade, no crash or error message, just nothing.


Anyone else have problems saving images at the "Original" size?
