Heyo awesome folks, hope everyone is keeping well. Welllll for the Lumia users we have been spoilt recently thanks to the new Black update. Keep in mind this updates comes just after the Amber and I must say after the Amber update my expectations went through the roof. Keep in mind that I tested this update on the Lumia 520.

The Black update really adds more awesome features to the 520, especially the Glance Screen that not released for the 520 with the Amber update. Well the good news is… the update is INCREDIBLE

The feature that I was really amped about was the Screen Rotation lock!!! This means your device will no longer automatically switch to portrait or landscape depending on how you hold your awesomeness device.

Double tap to wake allows you to tap your device screen in order to wake it up, however keep in mind using this feature does drain your battery.

Other features include Drive mode and the ability to set custom sounds for emails. instant messages and reminders.

Lets not forget to mention the new applications such as Nokia Story Teller and Nokia Camera (this combines Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera) available exclusively for the Black update.

Heyo awesome folks, need to free up space on your Window’s Phone? Have a look at Aerize Optimizer which is available for Windows Phone 7,8 and 8.1. Remember from previous posts, Aerize have created amazing applications for BlackBerry smartphones, this is the same with regards to Aerize Optimizer. This application allows you to free up space plus the easy to use interface makes this application a breeze to use. Although it should be said that the free version of this application does have some great features however it does not have the Automatic Background Optimization that comes with the pro version of this application. This feature enable the application to continue working in the background therefore saving you time and effort.

Heyo awesome folks, S4BB have created this new amazing app for BlackBerry 10 devices. Down Tube allows to preload videos this means you can now watch videos from sites such as Youtube without internet connection this also means that clips will not suffer from buffering (at this time only 3 sites are supported – Youtube, Vimeo and MetaCafe). Another unique feature of Down Tube is the ability to save the video to your awesome BlackBerry 10 device, although this feature does not support Youtube currently. Overall this app is a must have for anyone that watches videos on the go plus with its bargain price tag of R16 it is a steal. Why wait for your videos to buffer when you can rather use Down Tube by S4BB.

Heyo awesome folks, these days the market is filled with different smartphones from different brands, the problem is selecting the right one for you. Remember switching from one device to another can be a shock for example when I bought my Nokia Lumia 520 I was not used to data charges since BIS really made me comfortable. So the first few days was a headache no jokes haha.

Remember each device may differ firstly choosing a Samsung over an iPhone or any other device may come with its own perks and vice versa, however before purchasing smartphone try to find out the specs and features of the phone so that you know for what you are paying for (there are some good websites that help you do this such as http://www.gsmarena.com/ ). Some mobile stores allow you to use in store demos which is really useful since you can determine whether or not you like the device, for an instance you may like a certain smartphone however after purchasing it you may regret it once you fully discover the phone or get tired of its features.

Like I mentioned earlier if you switching from once device to another try to find out what are the cons so that you will not face any nasty surprises for example some people may think that BlackBerry 10 devices come with BIS however this is not true! Lastly always trust your gut feeling and judgement do not make hasty decisions.
Happy shopping!

Heyo folks, BlackBerry Messenger is now available for iOS and Android, this is pretty cool however the question we have to got ask is what does this mean for BlackBerry? Sure we can now all chat on BBM however porting this messenger to other devices also means that BBM has lost its exclusiveness, people now a reason to pick another device over a BlackBerry. None the less what does this also mean for Whatsapp? or other messenger applications, I guess we will find these answers in the not so distant future, until then happy pinging!

Heyo awesome folks, S4BB have released new updates for their Wikipedia and Wikitravel applications for BlackBerry 10 devices. These awesome updates now add extra features such as the ability to bookmark articles which is a really awesome feature especially if you want to read the articles at a later time, also the update fixes several minor bugs and improves the user’s interface. On the other hand if you do not have these applications yet on your BlackBerry10 Smartphone now would be a good time to get it especially considering the fact that these applications carry the free price tag.
