If your favorite did not make the cut this week, remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.
Pintagram by Marco Gallo
Pintagram is a third party application for the cross-platform instant messaging system called Telegram. Telegram users are able to exchange encrypted and self-destructing messages, videos, photos, and documents. One BlackBerry developer has taken it upon himself to create a native unofficial version for BlackBerry 10. With this application users can not only utilize Telegram's features such as their cloud storage and group chat capabilities, but also offers sending files up to 1GB. The developer behind Ice Cubes and Nostalgia has created a free, no ad, application that also has Hub integration. If you are a current user you can find it at the link.
Tap Heroes by YuchGame
A suggestion made by one of our users, Tap Heroes is an enjoyable time killer. Gameplay is rather simple, all you have to do is quickly tap to beat the monster/boss in a limited time to advance to the next level as well as collect the coins. This game tests not only your hand speed but gives you over 200 levels for you to beat. Between collecting coins, weapons, and marveling at the amazing graphics this is sure to keep you occupied for hours on end and is quite enjoyable. This application is free to download for the Q10, Q5, Z10, Z3, and Z30.
Auto SMS by ANSD Studios
In those situations where you need to delay sending your text messages this easy to use application does the trick. It is a headless application that allows users to send messages at a specific time, offers multiple message and active frame support, contact integration, and a broadcast feature. The interface is easy to navigate to ensure your messages get sent when you want. For $0.99 you can grab this in BlackBerry World for all BlackBerry 10 devices.
Goodreads by Goodreads
One of my favorite pastimes is reading. No matter where I am, I always carry a book with me whether it is a paperback, hardcover, or an electronic version to read on my devices. Goodreads grants users the ability to register their books and create an online reading list. Book lovers will enjoy how it lets them review what their reading, find new and interesting books based on what you've read, see what your friends are reading and their reviews, join groups based on specific interests and more. Whether you wish to discover something new or keep track of where you are (6% read of A Dance with Dragons!), you can find this application in the Amazon Appstore.
Head Words by Ebscer
If you're a fan of the Heads Up game then you'll be pleased with this native BlackBerry version. Head Words is a multi-player guessing game that is similar to charades whereby after a user selects a category they place their device on their forehead while the other players offer clues for them to guess the word, phrase, etc. The player can tilt the phone down for a correct answer or up to pass. If you are searching for a great party game on your BlackBerry 10 handset then you can grab it for FREE and start playing!
What You Might Have Missed
Follow Mail by Emberify
For those looking to enhance the hub and email experience on BlackBerry 10, this week saw the release of Follow Mail. The application offers three features. First, it gives users follow up reminders for emails, sends a notification when a reply is received for the particular email, and integrates with Turbo Reader to help you read your emails faster. We all want to be productive and this app helps you to get things done faster. You can grab this for $1.99 for BlackBerry 10.
