CrackBerry noticed the new BlackBerry Q10 page went live at AT&T this morning marked “Coming Soon” and we couldn’t be more excited! Here in the States BlackBerry Q10 is a legend, but it’s still unseen. That is until now. With Verizon and Sprint already announced it was only a matter of time before AT&T showed their love.
Should you be a legacy BBOS BlackBerry user holding out, or a BlackBerry Z10 owner like most of us, this news brings tears of joy to our faces. Knowing that the device will soon be in our hands builds glorious excitement. AT&T users can head over to the link below and get in the know today!
The BlackBerry Mini Stereo Speaker has been one of the most popular accessories in my arsenal.

[Review] Critical Wave for BlackBerry Z10 by Grannies Games – $0.99 well spent
In the shuffle of BlackBerry Live, receiving the new BlackBerry Z10 a couple months back and all the accessories we’ve been reviewing some of our favorite new games/apps for BlackBerry 10 didn’t get their proper reviews. One of those games is Critical Wave for BlackBerry Z10 by Grannies Games. It’s $0.99 and one seriously awesome action-shooter!
Critical Wave v2.1 Features:
- Bosses that keep growing each level
- Many enemy types and mini bosses
- Upgrades and powerups
- Scoreloop integration
- Varied and intense gameplay, guaranteed to give hours of fun!
Update – Hours after this post went up, a couple well known BlackBerry developers reached out to us and let us know there was a issue (See CB Forum post here) where Moog Music would delete documents in the BlackBerry Z10 device storage. This issue was resolved quickly thanks to the developer, BlackBerry and the magic of the CB Forums. The new version v18.104.22.168 cab be purchased/updated in BlackBerry World here. Likewise at the end of this post.
Animoog for BlackBerry 10 was featured during the BlackBerry Jam keynote at BlackBerry Live in Orlando, FL. Popular with many major musicians, the Animoog app enables users to create and sculpt music using a variety of sounds, timbres and effects—all in the palm of their hands.
New Berryfication BBM Channel – Now Open!
Tuesday morning at BlackBerry Live, BlackBerry announced a great new feature for BBM called BBM Channels. It’s much like a collection of mini-mobile blogs within BlackBerry Messenger. The new feature is an extension of BBM and is compatible with devices running OS 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 7.1, BlackBerry 10 & BlackBerry 10.1. Get the full scoop on BBM Channels here. You can download BBM Channels to your BlackBerry at www.blackberry.com/beta
Once you’re all set up with BBM Channels, should you prefer to give the new beta a spin you can then join our Berryfication BBM Channel here: C00045DA1 or simply scan the barcode in the image below.
We will be bringing lots of great news, giveaways, product news and much more via our BBM Channel starting tonight. If you follow either Berryfication @berryfication or myself at @rezn you know that I tend to share links to products before anyone else. There’s a couple reasons why I do this one is because developers let us know about new products, many we test via sandbox, as well I still have a couple tricks up my sleeve. So we can’t stress the importance of joining our channel to get in the know right away. I will be limiting my personal Twitter account to information after we’ve shared it on the BBM Channel. That way we can keep it a treat for our fans and avoid being uncredited on other sources.
So what are you waiting for? Join up! And enjoy!
Files & Folders v6.3 for Z10 and Q10 is now available in BlackBerry World
I can’t express how happy I am to see Innovatology is finally able to release their much anticipated Files & Folders for BlackBerry 10. I picked up the BB10 version when it originally launched but some issues with BlackBerry 10 caused the app to be pulled by Innovatology. This bug rendered the app inoperable on some OS’s. If you’re still having an issue with Files & Folders it is recommended that you first uninstall it, reboot your device, reinstall and make sure you’re running 10.0.10.822 (Z10) or 10.1.0.1055 (Q10).
Files & Folders Version 6.3 for BB10 Features (May 7th, 2013)
Note: a bug in older versions of BB10 may prevent apps from opening. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app, or upgrading to 10.0.10.822 (Z10) or 10.1.0.1055 (Q10) should fix this.
Changed in Files & Folders v6.3 for BB10:
- NEW! Support for BlackBerry Q10′s smaller screen and standard shortcut keys.
- NEW! Trial version now available too
- NEW! Support for BlackBerry Link Remote File Access!
- Requires BB10 version 10.1 or newer.
- Install BlackBerry Link on your PC, and configure Remote File Access.

- The media player continues playing when Files & Folders is in the background
- Added portrait/landscape rotation support
- Added support for hardware play/pause button

- ENHANCED! Huge performance improvement for thumbnails of pictures on the device
- ENHANCED! Support for BB10 minimized operation:

New BBM Channels Announced – Available in BlackBerry Beta Zone
Well it’s not exactly BBM updated. But BBM Channels does add new layers of social communications, news, interaction and so much more.
I’ve had a little bit of time to play around with BBM Channels, added most of the featured channels, even accepted a couple private invites. I’m already preparing our own channel. And my excitement lies in the ease of use. From a channel creation process this looks like it will be easier than building even a web application for your blog. Just add a couple images for your channel and away you go!
As for interacting and being involved in other users channels I admit I love this new addition to BBM! They’ve even made it available to the older BBOS devices running 5.0, 6.0, 7.0, 7.1 & now BlackBerry 10 and 10.1.
So far as a follower to a BBM Channel you can get direct news the moment the Channel admin posts it. You can add a thumbs up/like as well as leave a polite comment. Hopefully BlackBerry users can keep their trolling attitudes clear of this new environment, as BlackBerry has already made it clear that foul language and/or innuendo will not be tolerated. As long as you can abide by that simple request we think this will be a wonderful new place to get great content and share our own! Get the full scoop below.
