I remember seeing the demo for Galaxy on Fire 2 for the BlackBerry PlayBook last May at the BlackBerry World Conference. Shortly after Fishlab Entertainment  released this title for the BlackBerry PlayBook, and now it has landed on the BlackBerry Z10 devices. Galaxy on Fire 2 HD is an action packed combat game where you must save the Galaxy from alien raiders, space pirates and of course power crazy madmen. Galaxy on Fire 2 HD is an awesome RPG title that you have to check out, as it also includes something a little special that you won’t see on the BlackBerry PlayBook. Fishlab Entertainment has ported both of the extensive story add-ons, Valkyrie™ and Supernova™, to the new platform. Currently Supernova™ is available on the BlackBerry 10, and not the BlackBerry PlayBook. So get into the action right now, and grab Galaxy on Fire 2 for a very affordable $9.99 and get ready to be blown away.

Yes, that’s right the ever popular Ruzzle has made it’s way to BlackBerry 10 just after the Z10 launches in the USA. For those of you who may have never heard of Ruzzle, you have to check it out. Ruzzle which is already available on Android and Apple devices is a fun paced word game where you must find as many words in two minutes by swiping  your finger across the letters on the screen to make words. Words can only be made with letters that are next to each other. Meaning you can’t touch a letter in the bottom right hand corner and then touch a letter in the top left hand corner. Challenge your friends, or find new opponents in this three round game. A winner is determined by whoever has the highest score. The best part is you choose when you want to play your round. Sometimes life gets i the way of fun, so if you can’t play it right then when the challenge is made that’s fine, you can pick up the match where you left off as soon as you have a couple minutes to spare.

I don’t know how I missed this one but Textgram a very popular Android and Apple app has made it’s way to the BlackBerry platform supporting both the BlackBerry PlayBook and the Z10. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Textgram, it is a really cool app. You type a message and you get to customize it by choosin different backgrounds and font styles. You can share them with your friends on social networks. The most common network I’ve seen them shared on has been instagram, which is an app that many BlackBerry fans are “patiently” waiting for. You can also share them on Twitter and Facebook. Are you interested in this app? Well pick this app up at the link below  for your BlackBerry PlayBook and Z10.

¿Que cocino hoy? Is a question I ask myself all the time, and ¿Que cocino hoy? has the answer. ¿Que cocino hoy? is an app that is target for all of us Latinos/Latinas or any Spanish speaker looking to find great recipes of meals of all sorts. ¿Que cocino hoy? is in spanish so for those who do not understand spanish this may be a little difficult to understand. However, for those who understand spanish you have access to over 2500 recipes!

¿Que cocino hoy? gives you the ability to search by name and ingredients group as well as search for what you have in the fridge. Also you have access to video recipes so you don’t have to just read directions you can follow them through video, or even through step by step photos. One of the features I really enjoy is the ability to recalculate the ingredients needed based off how many you are cooking for. So if I am cooking for my son and I or if I will have guests coming to visit I can easily find out how much of each ingredient I will need.

So if you are trying to find out what should you cook today then ¿Que cocino hoy? is an app for you. The best part of this app is the cost! It cost absolutely nothing for such a beautifully designed application. To download this app just follow the link below from your BlackBerry PlayBook.

The Argentinean government has recently banned sales of iPhones and BlackBerrys.  So what’s the point? It’s all in best hopes to reduce price inflation and to stabilize the economy within Argentina.  Currently, Microsoft, Nokia, Motorola, LG and Samsung have all opened up plants in Argentina and for that reason they do not fall under the ban.  Basically this puts Research In Motion on the spot to build a local plant in the country which will avoid BlackBerry smartphones from being imported in.

It’s no secret that Research In Motion is a bit behind schedule when it comes to releasing a mobile device that competes with other smartphones out there.  BlackBerry 10 devices are delayed due to the manufacturing of LTE chips which are set to be ready by mid-2012.  A very sad but true statistic has come to surface today.  Apple’s App Store is worth more money than all of Research In Motion.  That’s one individual item belonging to Apple worth more that RIM. RIM’s stock has reached down to $13.44 per share and has a total company value of $7.04 billion.  This is based on last week’s stocks.

Apple’s App Store is worth $7.08 billion which climbs a bit right on top of Research In Motion.  The App Store only accounts for 2% of Apple’s value too.

tribute to steve jobs theme

I know many BlackBerry users still love Apple.  Some of you use MacBooks, iPads, or even have iPhones as side companions to your BlackBerry.  Either way, Steve Jobs, the man behind most of it all passed away and a theme has been created for BlackBerry in his memory.  The theme is of course Apple style and has Steve Jobs in the background in color as the image.  Features include:

  • Maximum Optimization to Prevent Memory Leaks.
  • Get the feel of Win Phone7 on your Black Berry�.
  • 4-5 Icon home screen.
  • Changeable app order.

Yesterday Steve Jobs, the former CEO of Apple past away.  Since then, we’ve been seeing reactions from competitors and people all over the world.  If you’re curious to see what Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie had to say, here’s their official statement:

“Steve Jobs was a great visionary and a respected competitor,” said Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, co-chiefs of BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd., the company that has recently lost its North American smartphone market dominance to Apple and Google Inc.’s Android operating system. “We extend our deepest condolences to his family and to all of the employees of Apple.”

Today Apple had their big announcements including iOS 5, which has a new service called iMessage.  iMessage is used as a universal messenger for iPhones and iPads to all talk to one another.  Sound familiar? BlackBerry Messenger is RIM’s most popular feature in the BlackBerry smartphone so Apple has taken on the same tactic in catering to iPhone users as well.

Like BBM, iMessage has delivery and read receipts and allows users to send messages, photos, videos, locations, and contacts. So what do you make out of Apple’s new feature? Does iMessage make you lean more towards the iPhone or do you remain loyal to BlackBerry?
