Parrot - Voice Recorder

We first took a look at the superb BlackBerry 10 voice recording application, Parrot, just over a year ago (on video) and although it's not an app I use myself very often I have to say that it's remained on my device ever since and potentially it should be on every business persons BlackBerry.

It looks like our favorite instant messaging app just received an update. It's not too big an update but it does seem like BlackBerry has made it simpler to attach photos. Currently, by default, when you tap the paper clip icon to attach a photo, the voice note option is selected. You then had to tap the picture icon to then get the option to attach one. Now, it defaults to attaching file or photos when you tap the paper clip icon.

If you're looking for an app to track your expenses, MyAccountant is an app a lot of people recommend. You can categorize your expenses to make it easier to track, see your transaction history and even create recurring payments. It has featured in our back to school app roundup, twice, and has been receiving updates. It has just seen an update with a UI tweak, though the general layout is the same. It also has more business options added like a VAT, GST and Sales Tax calculator tool. Great to see more new features added. Definitely an app I continue to use regularly.

Reminder: BlackBerry hosting Amazon Developer Expert Q&A on Sept. 4th

This is just a little reminder for anyone interested in learning more about how the Amazon Appstore and apps will work on BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry will be hosting their Amazon Developer Expert Q&A on September 4, 2014 3:00:00 PM ADT. This is a follow up to the previous webinar held, which can be listened to here if you missed it and aims to address any challenges or questions developers may have had with bringing their BlackBerry app to the Amazon Appstore.

Did you have any challenges bringing your BlackBerry app to Amazon? We want to help you get them resolved and your app into the store. Attend this webcast to have all of your questions about the Amazon Appstore and Amazon Developer Program answered by the experts.

I think this one will be particularly interesting and worth a look simply based on some of the questions asked on the previous webcast that, as I understand it, will be answered this time around. Which questions? Well, topics on interest among those in attendance were: Many apps will install just fine, and run - but not with the full functionality as described. Will there be some eased up refund policy? How will apps that ask users to use widgets that aren't available on BlackBerry 10 be handled?

That's just a few examples of questions raised that will hopefully be further clarified on the upcoming webinar and they're questions I've had myself so, if you've not yet registered but want to know more then you can head on over to the registration page and get yourself signed up and tune in when the sessions go live.

Earlier this week I decided to ask the question if you use Skype on BlackBerry 10. If you missed the original post, I had the idea to run the poll as I very rarely use Skype even though it was one of those apps that before it was available, I was gagging for on BB10.

Shards

I realize that Amazon's free app of the day varies regionally and here in the UK I'm lucky enough to have picked this one up today for free, but I thought it was well worth sharing as it's pretty darn awesome.

I suspect there's won't be many BlackBerry 10 users that are not familiar with Brick Breaker - after all, we had it pre-loaded on legacy BlackBerry devices for years. Shards gives it a new modern twist and with a shed load of bonus items that drop from the bricks it spices things up very nicely.

Automate your exercise rep count with Sportrate Workout

A lot of the sports tracking apps found in BlackBerry World are for those distance type sports, like running, cycling but not everyone does those types of activities. If you prefer push ups, sit ups, etc, then you'll want to check out Sportrate Workout. Sportrate already has a fitness tracking app, one very popular with BlackBerry 10 users, so it's nice to see them bring out another app catering to other types of workouts. We did write about the app when it first came out but we thought we'd take a closer look at the app and see if it's worth it.
