CineTV10 by TZapps
For all you cinephiles out there looking for information on your movie, TV show, actor or director there is this application. CineTV10 is your film and series database. This native application offers access to everything you need to know including summaries, release dates, cast rosters including guest stars, posters, photos, trailers, and episode summary. Users can create a watch list and favorites list for all of your shows. With its smooth and easy to navigate interface, you will be able to discover a treasure trove of data pulled from theMovieDB.org. Available for BlackBerry 10, CineTV10 is $0.99 to download.
Pro Pinball Deluxe by Barnstorm Games
Since my early childhood I have always been a fan of pinball games. While there are already pinball games in BlackBerry World, what is the harm in checking out one more from the Amazon Appstore. The graphics are decent and the game is responsive to the touch controls. For those who enjoy playing pinball games you can check this game out. At the time of this post, Pro Pinball Deluxe is currently free to install from both the Amazon Appstore and the Amazon Underground (US, UK, Germany, and France only). The regular price is $6.99.
PhotoSuite Pro 4 by MobiSystems, Inc.
In my never-ending search for photo editing apps I came across PhotoSuite Pro 4. This application offers a wide variety of image adjustments including fun picture editing effects, image collages and sketching to advanced photo tools such as working with layers and masks as well as complex object selections. With this application users can create text-based graphics and insert freehand drawing, work with a ride range of brushes, enhance photos with real-time camera filter effects, and use manage your projects from the application's homescreen. Selection editing effects and tools is quite simple and the interface is easy to navigate. PhotoSuite Pro 4 is $4.99 to download from the Amazon Appstore and free in the Amazon Underground (US, UK, Germany, and France only).
Speedboat Challenge by WS net
Going through BlackBerry World I came across this high quality motorboat race simulation. It gives players the option to compete in a single player league or drive against real players in multiplayer mode. There are 16 race tracks, 5 landscapes, 6 weather variations, 7 boats simultaneously, 5 configurable boat parameters, 10 levels, and 50 racing goals. It also offers real-time physics with realistic movements and reactions, impressive controls and gamepad support. Each landscape and race track comes with their own unique atmosphere and weather conditions. You can download this game for free. However, once you reach the professional league level there is a league license fee. Though if you choose not to purchase there will be additional wait time added at the start of the race.
Polaris Office by Polaris Office, Inc.
Polaris Office is a free full-featured application that gives you access to all types of Microsoft Office documents and the ability to open, view, and share PDF files. When I say full-featured it actually comes with capabilities not found in Docs To Go including access to additional cloud storage, templates, ability to add and view footnotes, insert rows and columns in spreadsheets, and even add images to word documents. Polaris requires users create an account to use the application and there is no charge to do so. You can connect to several cloud accounts, including their own, for saving documents. If you are looking for an alternative application for viewing, editing, and sharing your Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files, you can download Polaris from the Amazon Appstore and the Amazon Underground (US, UK, Germany, and France only) for free.

Proximity Photos by Sven Ziegler IT Solutions
From the developer that brought you ReadItNow! and Vendor Stats comes Proximity Photos. This unique application presents users with the ability to discover new places not previously known to them so as to see these areas from a different point of view. How it works is simple. Proximity Photos scans the Flikr image database using your position to show all of the public photos of your current surroundings and even download them.
