When it comes to apps on BlackBerry 10, I want them all to be there available for download in BlackBerry World. Preferably, I want those apps to be built native for BlackBerry 10, and better yet, Built for BlackBerry approved. In other words, the best apps are best-built with BlackBerry's BB10 SDK and are designed and optimized for the BlackBerry 10 user interface and experience. If...

CrackBerry Mailbag: In Bulgaria we can't type in our native language on BlackBerry 10

Today's CrackBerry Mailbag letter comes to us from a CrackBerry reader in Bulgaria, who reminds us that while BlackBerry 10 has come a long way over the past year, there is still some filling in left to do around the edges. Specifically in this case, we're talking about the languages available for typing. Hi Kevin, I'm from Bulgaria and I currently use my BlackBerry Bold 9900 but...

I'll get straight to the point. I've been seeing a few too many comments and forum posts around here recently suggesting that we're not being big enough BLACKBERRY FANS with the articles we've been writing as of late.

Ok, I take back ALL the mean things I said about BBM stickers. I kinda, actually, LOVE THEM! Honestly, BlackBerry was smart to give away the WWE BBM stickers free of charge for a limited time. I pretty much reply to every BBM I receive now with The Ultimate Warrior. Beyond the freebie sticker packs, I've also been purchasing the other for sale ones, like Bubble Bot and Cos Cat (don't...

Now that the BlackBerry PlayBook is officially done with (for real this time), many users are left wondering what their best option for a tablet may be. In fact, the first email I read this morning was from my older brother, asking me what tablet he should replace his PlayBook with. And reading through the CrackBerry forums shortly after, I came across this thread where the question...

Oh Typo, how you push my buttons. When it comes to the Typo Keyboard for iPhone, I've actually been 100% impartial in the matter. I've praised the Typo keyboard — a thing many BlackBerry users think is wrong of me to do — for being a good product, if what you're looking for is a BlackBerry-like typing experience on an iPhone. I've also expressed my mind repeatedly on how much I think...
