Here is a quick overview of some cool new BlackBerry apps we discovered this week.
Most people enjoy playing board games. If you are one among them, you should definitely have a look at this app. iTavli is a backgammon like game. It is an Android app, but you can install it on your BlackBerry 10 device. It offers 3 different kinds of backgammon games: Plakoto (blockgammon), Portes (backgammon) and Fevga (narde). You can play against your friends who are on BlackBerry or other platforms. Or you can play against a computer opponent. The app provides instructions about playing the games. You can bet with virtual coins. You also have the option of playing without ads. The graphics are quite simple, but they do get the job done. This app runs $0.99. It is compatible with all BB 10 devices except the Q10.
Viira for BlackBerry
This is a powerful GTD application for BB handsets. Its chief purpose is to get you organized. The app offers plenty of features. Viira allows you to organize your emails and tasks into projects, reorder tasks by priority, tag tasks, associate reminders with tasks, view appointments and backup/restore. It even syncs with Outlook. Perhaps the only drawback is the price. It runs $19.99. A trial version is also available for free. While the price is steep, this app provides a great way to organize your life and work. It is compatible with all BB 10 devices. A version is also available for legacy BlackBerry devices.
Guess the Gif
This is an entertaining game. You will be shown a drawing that represents a pop icon or personality. With the help of this hint and the given letters, you have to guess who the person is. There are more than 200 levels to play. The images are pretty amusing. You can purchase hints or solve the puzzle by using coins. You will also be able to earn coins as you play. You can download this game for free from Amazon Appstore.
There is a trivia game with the same name, but this app is different. It is meant for a different audience. There may be moments when you can’t look away from your display while walking. In such situations, this app provides a view of what is in front of you, using the camera on the back side. This way, you will not bump into obstacles in the path. This app is compatible with all BB 10 devices. It runs $0.99.
Using this app, you can store and manage your .PKPASS files. That means you will be able to access your coupons, boarding passes, movie tickets, loyalty cards and all other passes on your BB device. You will also be able to use passes created on other devices if they are in the .PKPASS format. The app offers customized LED notifications and headless support. Passport Companion is compatible with BlackBerry 10. This version doesn’t support dynamic updates, but it is great for using on the go. It runs $2.99.
