Back when BlackBerry 10 launched, one of my favorite apps was Reebee. The app collected all the local flyers in my area and presented them in a way that was easy to read, so I could keep up with any sales that were happening through stores nearby. Eventually, Reebee stopped being updated, and I switched to Flipp, which offers a similar service though I found it to be slightly less reliable when it came to finding all available flyers.
Looking through the new arrivals section in BlackBerry World earlier, I noticed Reebee has released a new version of their app on BlackBerry World. This time around, they chose the Android route but have added plenty of new features over their previous version which has since been removed.

Unlike Flipp, Reebee only works in Canada, which is part of the reason I think they're better at ensuring most of the Canadian flyers are actually there whereas with Flipp, it was all rather hit or miss. In any case, if you like digging through flyers but don't want to deal with the actual paper versions, Reebee is a great option to try out. Plus, the whole shopping list function is great for when you need to remember items you saw you wanted to pick up.
