Skype for BlackBerry 10 updated with new design, improved navigation and search features

Body: 

Still making use of Skype on BlackBerry 10? If so, there's a brand new update waiting for you in BlackBerry World. Noted as v6.1.0.16424, this update brings the app in line with that of the Android version available on Google Play and as such, shares pretty much the same changelog, meaning there's a new look inspired by material design, improved navigation throughout the app and an improved search feature for messages.

Test the old grey matter with Brain Coach - free and pro versions available

Brain-Coach-Hero

Even if your initial thoughts are that playing Brain Coach is not your thing, you may well be surprised. We've seen one or two BlackBerry 10 games that are designed to test your brain, and this one does it better than the others I've previously tried. And just to confirm the quality of Brain Coach, it comes from Inspiro Software - if you're into fitness, you may well use his very popular app Sportrate.

BlackBerry App Roundup 9/4/15

BlackBerry App Roundup for September 5, 2015

Body: 

Howdy CrackBerry nation! I hope you all had a wonderful week. For the last few days I did the unthinkable, I actually took a few days off to visit some friends. A shock I know, but nothing wrong with a little downtime. Although, as you can see, I still found some time to search through all the storefronts and find some applications and games for you. Getting back to our favorite subject though, this week we saw AtHoc win a TSA contract to secure over 200 airports nationwide, new pics of the BlackBerry 'Venice' and another edition of the BerryFlow Upstream Podcast – Prospect. Finally, for those looking for a great deal on accessories be sure to take advantage of the ShopCrackBerry Labor Day 20% off sale by entering LD2015 at checkout from now through September 9th. Enjoy the holiday weekend everyone!

Read Out v2.0 adds the ability to share directly from the browser

Read Out v2.0 adds the ability to share directly from the browser

Body: 

It has only been a week since we reviewed the app Read Out and it hadn't even been released long before our review either. Today, Read Out sees an update to v2.0 with a handful of features to boot. It definitely is great to see dedicated developers to the platform. If you missed our review, Read Out is a text to speech app that allows you to have your emails read out to you or any text that you paste into the app. It even provided the ability to export it as an .MP3 file that you could then share if you wanted. With this update, Read Out now lets you share directly from the browser to make things even quicker, instead of having to copy and paste the text. There are a couple of new languages added too.
