When BlackBerry 10 was launched in January 30, 2013 with it came a host of social tools to help lure consumers and business users in, although these were the usual apps such as Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare etc. In order to become far more than the sum of its parts there needed to be more choice, and that’s just what BB10 has to offer.
CrackBerry has been looking at some of the best BlackBerry 10 social apps in 2013 and we thought we would pick a selection of what we believe stands out in that list.
First up there’s Trapeez that allows you to blog and publish quick posts while you are out and about, as well as being able to find new users. You can even leave your posts in chat forums allowing members to comment. This app costs just $1.99.
If you are into your videos then Keek could be the BB10 app for you, as it allows you to share short video clips direct from your BlackBerry handset. The tools that are available to you make it much easier to find the right people to follow, be it by subject or popularity. The best thing about this app is that it is free.
One social app that is very popular throughout all the platforms is WhatsApp, so had to be included on this list. This messaging client allows you to stay in contact with your friends for free and has a neat feature that tells you when your friends are online or not. You can even share pictures and videos and even voice notes, ideal if you are a business user or just want to have fun with your mates.
Other apps worth a mention are Untappd and Neatly, but if you feel you have a better BlackBerry 10 social app to add to the list then please do.
