N.O.V.A 3 review for the BlackBerry Z10: It's about to get messy

Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance, try and say that three times fast, it’s almost a tongue twister. Well at least Gameloft was nice enough to shorten it down to N.O.V.A in their latest title on the BlackBerry Z10, Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance 3 or N.O.V.A 3 for short. N.O.V.A 3 is a first person shooter that takes you to a time in the future to when the people of earth are no longer fighting their...

TimmyMe for the BlackBerry Z10

If you’ve ever been (or live) in Canada I'm sure you have come to the realization that we LOVE coffee, mainly Tim Hortons, and we like it a lot! So when Tim Hortons brought their famous TimmyME application to the BlackBerry Z10 I’m sure there was a collective sigh of relief from Canadians. The application has a ton of features available, some are simple like contacting Tim Hortons. While other...

BlackBerry goes high-tech on their YouTube ad for the BlackBerry Z10

BlackBerry had said on many accounts that with the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 they would be increasing their marketing efforts like never before.

SCUBA dive deeper and safer with The Dive Plan for the BlackBerry Z10

SCUBA, Self contained underwater breathing apparatus. Most people will connect the acronym SCUBA to exploring the underwater world with tanks of air strapped upon your back. While this is essentially what SCUBA diving is, there is a lot of work involved with making this a reality. Being a SCUBA diver myself I am quite aware of all the planning needed when you're diving, and more so when you...

BlackBerry Workspace demoed on iOS and Android devices

A few days ago at the BlackBerry Enterprise Forum one of the key announcements made by BlackBerry was the introduction of the Workspace for iOS and Android devices.

Take a look at the video...

Shark Dash swims its way onto the BlackBerry Z10

Back at BlackBerry Jams America, BlackBerry took to the stage with some of the big gun developers that they are working with on BlackBerry 10. One of the development houses that came on stage was Gameloft. Now, we’ve seen Gameloft support the BlackBerry PlayBook, so it wasn’t too far of a stretch to find out that they would be supporting BlackBerry 10 as well. Now, Gameloft has released Shark...

How to disable music updates from BBM contacts on BlackBerry 10

If you’ve been a BlackBerry user you’ll know that there is a feature in BBM that allows you to update your BBM status with what music you’re listing to.

Continue reading to see...

How to enable music shortcuts on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone

One thing that BlackBerry users have come to love over the years of owning a BlackBerry smartphone is the ability to control music with the volume keys.

With the introduction of BlackBerry 10  and the increased focus on media, one would expect this feature to be...

BlackBerry offers yet another sneak peek at their Super Bowl ad

BlackBerry has been giving us little hints at to what they are going to air during their first ever Super Bowl advertisement. This one seems to be a half man, half elephant. We're not sure what expect here, but based on the teasers it's not feeling like your standard BlackBerry device product feature commercial. What we do know is that we won't have to wait much longer to find out. Kickoff...
