Zeus Browser brings Adobe Flash support back to your BlackBerry 10 smartphone

If you're into taking lists, a great list taking app is SmartList10, an app we have reviewed here before. It features an interactive Active Frame meaning you can tick things off your list while the app is minimized in an Active Frame, which is a pretty neat thing. It's called SmartList10 as it has some pretty smart ways for you to add items to your list, such as being able to just copy something like an ingredients list from the browser and paste it into SmartList10 and it will create a list out of that.

A well known BlackBerry developer has just released an app in BlackBerry World today. CellNinja, who has brought us apps such as Hub2Watch and more, has released ProtectMe.
