Snap v3 Beta now available for download

It's here! Finally. After a few teases, Snap v3 is finally here. Well, in beta form anyway. Although it seems we've been waiting forever for release, we can now put that aside and test out the latest and greatest version of Snap, the app which helps you load Android apps onto your BlackBerry easily.

As expected, you will still need to sideload this release using Sachesi or whatever method you prefer to sideload BAR files with, but we'll leave that decision up to you. You're no doubt wondering what's new in this release and what it is exactly you're to be beta testing and thankfully, we've got a full list of changes for you to check out.
