Howdy CrackBerry nation! I hope you are all excited for not only the upcoming weekend but for the news and happenings in the world of BlackBerry this week. Not to mention our selection of apps and games, but we'll get to that later. From app updates including QuickPost, BlackBerry Blend and BlackBerry Beta Zone to BlackBerry announcing their fiscal results on June 23 it has been quite a week. Also, I received a tip from a reader that Minion Rush has been updated in BlackBerry World, and is now on par with iOS and Android. (Thanks, Ricky!).
Now it's time to bring you this week's picks for all your passionate BlackBerry addicts out there. You can find each app and game I've rustled up for you by clicking through the gallery below. If your favorite did not make the cut this week, remember you can help by offering your suggestions at the end.
Clash of Kings by Elex
For those seeking an exciting and addicting multiplayer strategy game there is Clash of Kings. The action takes place in a fantasy kingdom set during medieval times. Your goal is to build an empire, defend your castle, and conquer kingdoms in order to survive. It offers vivid graphics, plenty of action and is fun for players of all ages. You can find this PVG game for free in the Amazon Appstore.
Renumber by Miciniti
There is nothing like a simple but effective application to help you get through each day. Going through BlackBerry World I came across Renumber. This is a personal number listing and remembering application for BlackBerry 10 from the developer that brought you Dayly. It helps you to remember all those important numbers, birthdays, events, etc. in your life. This native application gives an overview of all of your numbers, ability to count up or down to your favorites dates, option to add counters/tallies, swipes to increment and decrement per step, mark your special numbers, as favorite and customize the background color. You can grab it for $0.99 from BlackBerry World.
Shoppe by Shaishad
For those who shop online this application presents users with access to multiple retailer sites. From Amazon, Walmart to Best Buy and eBay it puts all of them in one place to you can compare pricing and availability. It offers a simple and smooth shopping experience for $1.99. Though I must say it is the web versions of each site packaged in one native application.
Scan to Text Pro by Yuri Salnikov
Ask and you shall receive. Our next selection comes to us by way of our readers. Whether you need to scan something for business or for personal reasons, nothing wrong with turning your device into a pocket scanner. Scan to Text Pro offers a variety of features including Scan to Text OCR support for multiple languages (though additional language packs are available for download), advanced image processing, open multiple image files to process as a batch, preview and crop each image, choose paper size, and ability to rearrange pages prior to saving. This application is compatible with BlackBerry 10 for $3.99.
Amazing Breaker by Black Maple Games
I came across Amazing Breaker in the Amazon Appstore and if you enjoy aim and shoot games, similar to Angry Birds, then you'll like this one. The goal is to aim your slingshot, with different weapons, at the intricately designed ice structures. There are several different bombs and explosives to choose from in which to devise your strategy. What makes this challenging is that the different shapes of each of the structures make them difficult to destroy 100%. You need to carefully plan your shots to reach more vulnerable areas in order to clear the board. The graphics are high quality and stand out on the screen. Amazing Breaker is $0.99.
