Even though I have a knack for taking and posting pictures that haven’t been edited in any way on my photo blog, I do have a little secret. I love playing with photo apps that allow me to add filters and overlays to give it a different look, or feel. It’s one reason why apps like Instagram (that can currently be sideloaded on BlackBerry 10 devices) or PicMix or Pix Story have been popular applications. It’s also why on BlackBerry 10 you have the ability to really edit your photos, which wasn’t an option on the previous BlackBerry OS. (more…)

Here is a cool app that just hit BlackBerry World! It’s called Flash Ring, and it alerts you of incoming calls and even BBM voice calls by making the flash on your camera strobe. It’s something that some might have seen on friends or family members  iPhone. Now that ability is available for your BlackBerry 10 devices. Flash Ring is a really cool app, and you can adjust the frequency of the flash speed, set the front LED, and the camera flash when it rings. Flash Ring utilizes your camera permissions, so it will not work if another camera app is open, and the app must be open as an active tile for it to run (that of course is until BlackBerry releases the ability to create headless apps for all developers).  Flash Ring is a must have app, and if you want to see it in action check out the video here! Flash Ring can be found in BlackBerry World for a very affordable for $0.99. So point your Z10 or Q10 to the link below!

Browsing through BlackBerry World on my BlackBerry PlayBook I came across Rasta Speed. I must admit it the word rasta caught my attention, and I had to see what Rasta Speed was all about. Rasta Speed is an Android port, and is available for BlackBerry PlayBook and for BlackBerry 10 devices. Rasta Speed is an addicting two player game that test speed and reflexes. Rasta Speed will display a name of a color either RED, YELLOW, or GREEN (I’m pretty sure that’s why the name of the game is called Rasta Speed, just a guess though), and you must tap that color before your opponent. The game gets trickier as it continues. Points are score by touching the correct color first, and points can be lost by touching the wrong color.

Rasta Speed is a fun FREE game that can be played either on your BlackBerry PlayBook or Z10, so follow the link below and challenge your friends for hours of fun and laughs.

So I was searching through BlackBerry World and I came across We Zap for the BlackBerry PlayBook and the BlackBerry Z10. We Zap comes from the creators of George The Unlucky Fish, Billy’s Hill, and Sylvester’s Band so I had to download it. We Zap has a very simple concept, but it is very challenging to complete. If you check out the image above you see Bob, and his rocket. You must help Rocket Bob from crashing into obstacles by zapping them. You do this by connecting the obstacles with cables and start a chain reaction by dragging a cable into the sky to catch lightning. Like I said seems really easy but as the game progresses the 20 second timer you have flies by! Do you think you have what it takes to save Rocket Bob? If you do then head over to BlackBerry World and grab this game now. It’s a great time killer, good for all ages, and fun to challenge your friends. You can get We Zap for Free, just follow the link below.
