Rumminy by Heris IT
First up this week is a new take on the classic Rummy or ginrummy card game. Rumminy is an online multiplayer game where you can compete against a friend, find a player, or against a random opponent. The objecto f the game is to dispose of all of the times in your hand. These combinations may consist of tiles of three or four successive numbers of the same color or three or four pieces of the same number but different colors. The game itself is quite fun as you try to figure out your next move. There is also a chat option for speaking with your opponents. The features I would like to see is being able to delete an invite for non responsive players and end a game. Rumminy is free to download for BlackBerry 10.

Email Organizer by NandkumarRS
Back in my BBOS days, I used to be able to set filter rules on BIS to organize and automatically sort emails. To fill in the gap on BlackBerry 10 is Email Organizer. It allows you to create rules for your email accounts on your device rather than on the server. All you have to do is create the rule and leave it running in the background (it is not headless). Setting up each of your rules is easy. Simply choose the email address from the dropdown list, select the folder you wish to send the message to, and pick which contact(s) you would like the rule to apply to on incoming email messages. Once those options are set, tap on save and agree to run the rule and that is it. All emails from those individuals will be automatically filed according to your selection. In addition, rules may be edited and deleted. For $0.99 this is a useful feature to organize your emails.

Tiny Thief by Rovio Stars Ltd.
In this medieval adventure game your unconventional hero, the aforementioned thief, must pilfer select items without being detected by the guards. Each stage has its own level of difficulty and you maneuver your character by clicking and interacting with various objects on the screen. The visuals are clean and adorable and runs well on my BlackBerry Passport. If you find you have some free time and need a whimsical break you can purchase this for $2.99 in the Amazon Appstore.
