XLabz Give Users More Reasons to pick up a BlackBerry Z10
We’ve played through hours upon hours of their PlayBook games and apps. I’ve downloaded just about every single one. And now XLabz is back, and almost exactly how you remember them. Sure they are the same ideal but since each game had to be rebuilt from the ground up for BB10 in regards to UI, users who have already purchased the PlayBook versions will have to re-purchase each game or app that they would also love to experience on the BlackBerry Z10.
Sure this will always be a gripe for some. Sorry but if everything in life was meant to be easy then even I’d probably have a BlackBerry Z10 by now. ZING. However I have purchased ProInsights, Vault, UberIris, Dictionary+, A Day In Life & Bird Calls all from a Dev Alpha A. Each was well worth it’s money and weight in slickness. My favorites being ProInsights, Vault (uploaded all my passwords via Dropbox backup from PlayBook in just seconds), UberIris and Dictionary+!
Check out each individual product at the links below. Big thank you to XLabz for bringing this many products over so quickly. I just grabbed the paid version of The Logo Game too! Enjoy.

We often wonder how some developers can stay on the ball, always putting out something fresh for the masses. Well Pre-K Skills is actually a cool learning app for pre-school children. Of course I put this one to the test and was impressed as usual. XLabz has a broad range of products under their belt now, apps like Vault, Uber Iris, ProInsights & now A Day In Life (also available on BB10 Dev Alpha) are staples on my PlayBook.
Here’s what preschoolers can learn from Pre-K Skills:
- Shapes: Learn to identify different shapes like squares, circles, triangles, spheres, pyramids and more.
- Counting: Learn to count dots, shapes and other objects up to 10.
- Comparing: Learn to compare different groups of objects.
- Positions: Understanding various positions like inside & outside; left & right etc.
- Classification: Classifying objects as same or different and also classifying objects by their colors.
- Size: Learning about sizes like tall & short, wide & narrow etc.
- Money: Identifying various coins like pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters and learning to count money.
XLabz Technologies strikes back with another powerful and useful tool for PlayBook tablet owners. They’ve priced this one very competitively at just $1.99.

One of our favorite third-party developers XLabz Technologies let us about 2 new apps they now have available for BlackBerry PlayBook owners: Synth Pad & Groovy Beats. Both high quality applications like always. If you haven’t seen XLabz before, be sure to check out some of our favorites here.
Here are the top features of Synth Pad:
- Customizable layout: Can have as few as 2 keys or as many as 15 keys at a time. Each key represents a particular instrument or sound which can be edited.
- Options to save and load your presets and also adjust the tempo (BPM).
- Autoplay mode to compose rhythms and play them back automatically; can do this by tapping the numbers on the keys. These rhythms change depending on the sound/instrument you choose.
And here’s a gist of Groovy Beats:
- Each row on the grid of Groovy Beats corresponds to a different instrument/sound while each column corresponds to a different point in time.
- Loop: Hit the Loop button to play a particular beat in a continuous loop
- Groovy Beats let you create and play up to 4 pages of beats!

If you haven’t figured out what this game is about by now, we’ll go ahead and spoil it for you. It’s about guessing brand logos. See our original review/post here. And no it’s not as easy as you’d think. You’ll earn hints as you progress that can be used to guess those more difficult logos, or you can purchase [optional] hint packs for $0.99 & up.

XLabz comes through again for BlackBerry PlayBook owners, but this time they do so for FREE! Yes FREE. The Logo Game couldn’t be more self-explanatory than the title itself. And for once I’ve downloaded a “FREE” product that you can really play through without spending any extra loot. Unless of course you want to take the easy route and buy some hints.
Here’s The Logo Game in a nutshell:

Vol 2 is officially here! THE HEAVY ROTATION seemed to quite a hit the first go round. Assuming users either love repetition, or we’ve built a nice fanbase of readers that trust my selective choices. Either way, round 2!
We’ve still never seen the post that was specifically created for another important blog go live. To be honest I’m just going to have to get past that. In lieu of it all I must admit, I love these posts.
