NavFree adds support for BlackBerry Q5 and Q10, brings new maps as well

Body: 

Although there's no official Google Maps app for BlackBerry 10, that doesn't mean there's no great map apps for BlackBerry 10. NavFree is one app I've been testing lately easily becoming one of my favorites. The features list for NavFree is extensive and the way they've set their app up is great. You don't need to download every map they offer, just the ones you need and you're set.

Previously though, it wasn't available on any of the Q-Series of BlackBerry 10 devices but a new update available in BlackBerry World right now changes that, as it adds support for the Q5 and Q10. As for that features list, have a look below to see it all laid out. If you're looking for a mapping app, NavFree is something you'll want to check out and best of all, it's available as a free download.

Where did the Google Mobile apps for BlackBerry go?

Google Mobile Apps

Google Maps has been available for BlackBerry smartphones forever but now whether intentional or not it appears to of have gone missing, along with a few other Google apps. Google recently revised their Google Mobile pages and BlackBerry users looking to download the apps are finding out the link as advised by Google here, just simply no longer works. In its place, what BlackBerry users find unsurprisingly is a list of all of the Android apps Google has available unless they're coming from an iOS device, in which case you're shown all of the Google iOS apps.

CrackBerry Guide to BlackBerry taxi and transit apps

Welcome to the CrackBerry Guide to Taxi and Transit applications. If you thought your BlackBerry helped you while in transit only when you’re behind the wheel, then think again. I’m not talking about keeping entertained or catching up on email either. Before you hail a cab, or before you step off of the train, you can use BlackBerry applications to help you every step of the way. Well not every step; if you want a seat without gum stuck to it, you have to look for one yourself.

I remember the first time I was introduced to the wonder that is the subway system. I know it sounds funny, but this is coming from a guy who spent the first 10 years of his life in a town so small, he and his brother and sister were the only ginger kids in town; but I digress. Not knowing where I was going, I blindly followed the friends I was visiting. Dodging through crowds, rushing to the next platform, the first few trips can be a little confusing- almost a bit scary, especially in an unfamiliar town. It doesn’t have to be. Load the following apps onto your BlackBerry, and you’ll do just fine.

Real time traffic information with Google Maps

Body: 
We recently reviewed Google Maps, a free software from Google you can install on your BlackBerry. An updated version of this great application is now available, featuring real-time traffic information in over 30 major US metropolitan areas. The technology used for the traffic feature comes from ZipDash, a startup Google acquired in 2005. The traffic/speed database is built from multiple sources, including users. As the application is used on some phones, it reports its GPS information back to Google servers. This information is aggregated to build a picture of the current traffic situation.
