BlackBerry World is Changing and I already miss some BB10 and BBOS apps

Today is April 1st, for some its April fools but for us BlackBerry fans its day to remember as the day that BlackBerry World changed and started the transition to the end in the end of 2019.

From today, the store will only show Free apps, so if developer didn’t changed his apps value they no longer appear in the store. For me and more i guess its pretty sad day, but not something that surprise me. Instead i want to choose my top BB10 and BBOS apps and ride on the nostalgic wave.

It’s hard to choose lets say, 10 apps, but i will try make my top list. Without BBM or any other pre loaded BB10 apps.

  • BlackBerry Express (Beta) – Well my go to presentation app on BlackBerry 10. Made few presentations for work on the go, easily and good looking
  • Blaq for Twitter – I did say it a lot of times, the best Twitter experience ever, on every platform i ever used twitter
  • Echo voice recorder – made by my friend Alessandro ¬†Belotti, my favorite option for voice recording
  • Nobex Radio – For BB10 and BBOS, it was the best radio app, the Android version is nothing near to the BlackBerry version
  • Privacy Suite Pro – The days before Locker app, you get it. There is information that better kept behind passwords
  • Snap2Share – On of my most used apps, like Notable, its the best app for sketching on pictures
  • Quick Post – when i needed to share on thing on many platforms, i went to this app.
  • The ScoreMobile – was my best live score app for BBOS and Playbook.
  • iGrann – The best Instagram app i ever had, even compare to the official one

Now its your turn to share your top BBOS and BB10 apps, for the nostalgia.
