I used to have a lot of fun with this application on iOS and Android back in the day (yes I owned one of those devices before).  Movie VFX allows you to add awesome effects to videos you record.  For example, you can record a video of your friends, and then edit it by adding a car falling from the sky right on scene.  If you do it right, you can actually make it look legit.  Either way, the application gives you four different effects to choose from and your favorite in application purchases to get more cool effect bundles to add to clips.  You can grab it at BlackBerry World free today on your Q10 or Z10.

bbworld_games_thumb1 New App Wednesday continues, as we see more and more titles come to the BlackBerry 10 platform.  The latest buzz has been around the Q10, since it was a later released device, and smaller screen resolution than the Z10.  With that said, it is very impressive to see all these games and applications ported to the device.  Hit the jump for more on what’s new with BlackBerry 10.

Some of you might be missing themes from the legacy BlackBerry devices as you have upgraded to a Z10 or Q10.  S4BB makes it possible to get some customization to your home screen with their free application called Theme.  We got the word that the application recently updated to version 1.3.0.4 adding a few new goodies:

 

  • 10 new themes to choose from
  • Choose images from your device
  • Use a picture that was taken from your camera

The only thing I am particular about is that I would prefer having a separate image on the lock screen, as we are capable of doing so on other platforms such as iOS.  This of course is not limited by the application, but more or so on the operating system itself.  Either way, this is a great app to download to switch up your wallpapers and home screen look. Check out Theme by S4BB free in BlackBerry World today.

There are many flashlight applications for BlackBerry as we have been seeing for years and years.  S4BB has a pretty decent free application with a one button interface and sleek UI.  We got the word this morning that the Flashlight Pro application has updated with a fresh look and gives you the ability to have the light on solid or as a strobe light.  Don’t get discouraged by the app title having “Pro” in it as it is still free.  Features include:

  • Flashlight goes on right when you open the app!
  • Uses both the camera light and screen light as a flashlight.
  • Camera light will never turn off! No time limit!
  • Sets the brightness of the screen-light to full brightness for extra lighting.
  • Useful help screen for quick reference.
  • Sends out a SOS Morse Message in an endless loop by turning the camera light and screen light on and off according to the international Morse code.

Previously we were teased of the BlackBerry R-Series in individual screenshots, one of which appeared in red color.  This time around, we get a better look at the device and see it side by side with Z10 and Q10 for comparison purposes.  Furthermore, some specs of the device leaked out as well:

  • 3.1-inch display, 720 x 720 resolution
  • 5MP rear camera, front camera
  • Support to shoot up to 2560 x 1920 resolution photos
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • 1800 mAh non-removable Battery
  • BlackBerry 10.1 OS

Interesting to see the screen resolution at 720 x 720, as some may have assumed it would be smaller.  Hit the jump below to check out more leaked images.

Along with Six Guns, Real Football 2013 also made its debut by Gameloft for the BlackBerry 10 platform.  This one is the updated 2013 version, as we were stuck on 2011 on the BlackBerry PlayBook for a really long time.  This game is free and includes in app purchases for upgrades and player revives.  Game play is definitely a lot more interactive than before as it includes a lot of team management, not just the same soccer game over and over.  Check it out at BlackBerry World free today.
