Rovio teases 'big adventure' with new Angry Birds

We're not quite sure just what it is, or when we'll see it go live (the name and other details will be revealed tomorrow) but Rovio is teasing an all-new Angry Birds release on Twitter. Their last offering, Angry Birds Go, landed on BlackBerry 10 the same day as other platforms, so here's to hoping that this one will be the same. We know what a debacle it was to get the original titles on BB10...

Microsoft looking to bring Android apps to Windows Phone

Interesting news today as it's being reported that Microsoft may now be looking to follow in the footsteps of BlackBerry and bring Android apps to Windows Phone devices. According to the report, Android apps would actually be available within the Windows Phone store directly on devices. Nothing has yet been confirmed but it could make things very interesting for Windows Phone users if it holds...

What's your high score in Flappy Bird?

Okay, I'll admit it — I'm totally sick of Flappy Bird. I'm angry that I installed it, angry that I made my friends install it, and even more angry that I can't stop playing it. It's slowly sucking the life out of me. That being said, I did manage to score 21 today and I'm way more proud of myself than I should be. If for some reason you haven't yet played Flappy Bird — you need to. Or maybe...

Round Two: Typo fights back against BlackBerry

The BlackBerry / Typo saga continues. Recently BlackBerry sought an injunction against Typo and their iPhone keyboard accessory, claiming that the Typo infringes on one or more of BlackBerry's patents. BlackBerry aimed to block sales of the device in the US for the time being. Typo isn't going down without a fight however. In order for BlackBerry to win out, they'll need to convince the court...

Behind the making of the amazing BlackBerry 10 Sochi Olympics app

Behind the making of the amazing BlackBerry 10 Sochi Olympics app

This week I had a chance to talk with one of the developers of the Sochi 2014 app for BlackBerry 10 — what will be my go to app for the Olympics this year. The app itself is beautiful. It has a great UI, it's fast, and it works ridiculously well. If you haven't downloaded it yet, go get it right now. The Sochi app was made for BlackBerry 10 by Eventbase, a company that specializes in event-...

BBM for iPhone and Android updated with 'Find Friends' feature

One of the big gripes we have with cross-platform BBM is the way it handles contacts — or that it doesn't. There was never really a way to easily discover which friends and contacts are using BBM and quickly add them to your contacts. A new BBM update for iOS and Android is rolling out this week however and includes the new Find Friends feature which will fix all that.  The feature lets you...

Would you like these BlackBerry 10 sliders?

If a BlackBerry 10 slider is something you think would be awesome, these fan-made concepts are for you. Our friend Ziro1 is back with some more designs — this time for the "Z11" and "Z20". Two slider concepts that are two sets of awesome.  I was a total Torch lover so I have to say that either one of these would be amazing to have for my day-to-day. I love that you can drop away the keyboard...

'Why I hate BlackBerry Z10 EVEN MORE!'

It's been a year and our buddy J_Caloy is still hating his BlackBerry Z10. He hated it before — and after a handful of software updates over the last year, he now hates it even more! Can't get enough of these videos. He sums everything up nicely from the OS 10.2.1 update in this one, so if you have 10 minutes to spare it's definitely worth checking out. 

How to get Flappy Bird on your BlackBerry

Like it or not — Flappy Bird is addicting as hell. It's a super simple game with crappy graphics, but once you get going you just can't seem to put it down. It's taking off like crazy on iOS, Android and even Windows Phone, and thanks to OS 10.2.1 and a few tricks you can have it up and running on your BlackBerry 10 device in not time at all. Just beware that it's extremely addicting — consider...

Unofficial Chive app set to hit BlackBerry World tomorrow

A few weeks ago we first saw the unofficial Chive app Chive On available for download. At the time it was unsure if it would ever make its way to an "official" launch in BlackBerry World, but tomorrow it looks like all the stars will be aligned. After some back and forth and a bit of dark magic, Chive On will indeed be available via BlackBerry World tomorrow for all BlackBerry 10 devices. The...

Wind Mobile announced today that beginning February 3rd, customers can pay an extra $15 a month for unlimited roaming in the U.S. That means Wind users can take advantage of unlimited calls, texts and data on the cheap when gallivanting around the US instead of coughing up loads of cash for just a few MBs of data. That's all there is to it — no other fees or catches on this one. New and...

Through the Zeis Lens: The BlackBerry 10 Launch Day Experience

A year ago today Kevin, Bla1ze, Marcus and I were on location in NYC for the global unveiling of BlackBerry 10 — to say it was a big day for us would be an understatement. After hanging out in the lobby with tons of other people from the media for what seems like hours, we rushed our way to the first line of press tables to ensure we had a good vantage point for the rest of the day. Once we got...

According to multiple reports in the forums, users are now seeing updates for OS From what we've heard OS 10.2.1 isn't set to roll out for another few days for most users but if this stands correct, the process may already be underway.

BlackBerry looks to block U.S. sales of the Typo keyboard

Things are starting to heat up now. As the Typo keyboard takes the iPhone world by storm, BlackBerry has now asked a California court to block sales of the device in the U.S. BlackBerry has accused the Seacrest-backed accessory of patent infringement (with good reason) even though some of the design elements differ slightly than those on the physical keyboard of the BlackBerry Q10. BlackBerry...
