Sleepwalker's Journey HD

We first took a look at Sleepwalker's Journey on BlackBerry 10 over a year ago on video and it was a pretty popular game. The only downside was that it came with a price tag from BlackBerry World. If you couldn't justify spending the cash but were interested in playing the game I bring you good news.

Amazon have Sleepwalker's Journey featured as their free app of the day today - sweet! I've downloaded it from Amazon onto my Z30 and it works perfectly.

There are often times we need to be able to record phone calls, perhaps for business purposes. We looked at an app that could do this before called Phone Tap, made by the developer of HUB++. It has been going through some changes in the UI and has recently had a new feature added - Call blocking.

200 free copies of QuickPost available today

Update: 300 copies added (500 in total)

One of my most used apps on BlackBerry 10 is QuickPost. The social media app that allows you to push out an update to multiple accounts in one.

BlackBerry Blend appearing in users download lists in BlackBerry World

This is more of a PSA then anything but here it goes. As some folks have noticed, BlackBerry Blend has started appearing in the 'My World' section of BlackBerry World. As folks are noticing, you can't do anything with it as of yet and even clicking on it leads to an error.

That's because it's not ready and well, BlackBerry hasn't even officially announced it or even really acknowledged it as of yet. We don't know why it's showing up in your download list but one could easily assume it's in preparation for its eventual unveiling and official announcement that's likely to come on the 24th with the BlackBerry Passport.

The candy craze may not be over quite yet, or at least that is what this latest game would lead you to believe. However, this newest release from BlackBerry 10 developer Marco Gallo is a completely different match-3 game. As such, the look and feel of it cannot be compared to Candy Crush or any other three-in-a-row game.

Previously available to download in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, the official version is now available to download. This delightful game is not only native but gives players a chance to take a break from their hectic schedules and enjoy themselves.
