Wi-Fi Direct isn't a new feature to BlackBerry 10, in fact it has been available since OS 10.2 but we haven't actually shown it in action here to CrackBerry yet, so there's no time like the present to do so. After all, you might be new to the BlackBerry 10 OS and didn't realise this was something you could do. I've actually started using it more as I recently got hold of a BlackBerry...

Hands-on with the BlackBerry Passport Flex Shell Case

BlackBerry has updated their Transform shell cases for BlackBerry 10 smartphones and they are now called Flex shell cases. So called because the back can flex outward to form a stand. There was a Transform shell for the BlackBerry Z10 and Z30, both different in design and now the Flex shell is a pretty nice update to the design. I was very fond of the Transform shell case for the Z10....

Remember the days when you would find a leather pouch inside the box of your brand new BlackBerry smartphone? I do and I miss it somewhat.

There are lots of photo editing apps to be found in BlackBerry World. We've looked at a few here on CrackBerry.com already. The latest one I've come across combines a few features of individual apps while adding extra options. Instead of having an app that just allows you to create sketches and doodles and having another app for photo editing. Snap2Share combines both into one app....

The latest BlackBerry 10 OS update to 10.3.1 brought many new features and imnprovements. One new feature is the addtion of data monitoring. Before BlackBerry 10.3.1 you had to make use of apps in order to track your data usage, while those apps still exist, you now have a native option.

The Pebble smartwatch isn't officially supported by BlackBerry themselves, but we do have a pretty awesome third party client in the form of Talk2Watch.
