If you’re planning to snatch up a new BlackBerry PlayBook or a QNX-based Blackberry smartphone soon, you’ll be interested to know that RIM has officially confirmed these will support both BlackBerry Java and Android apps.
It’s been in limited beta since July and hit the App World a few weeks ago, but if you didn’t grab it then go download BlackBerry Protect for your Blackberry now. You can locate your BB on a map, set a password, wipe it, make it ring loud or display a message and even wirelessly backup your phone’s contents. All for free! [BlackBerry App World]
Blackberry owners will want to update to the new Twitter for Blackberry 1.1 beta to sate their 140-character addictions. The release brings features like geotagging and Push @mentions – late to the game – but also includes direct messages that thread like BBM chats, Social Feeds integration and additional languages.

You know there’s a problem with our elite world o’ nerds when even your non-nerdy pals start harassing you about why their favourite Twitter app has suddenly been blocked. Save their bacon by telling them Twidroyd and UberTwitter (now renamed UberSocial) are back in the Android and BlackBerry app stores, and working just fine. [TechCrunch]
Twitter just suspended the crazy popular BlackBerry and Android Twitters apps UberTwitter and Twidroyd, respectively – among others – because they “violated Twitter policies and trademarks in a variety of ways”. Like “a privacy issue with private Direct Messages longer than 140 characters, trademark infringement, and changing the content of users’ tweets in order to make money,” says a Twitter spokespersona.
I had to uninstall the Facebook app on my BlackBerry Bold, such was my fury at how buggy it was. Let’s hope update 1.9 fixes some of the issues. Places is now supported (for “checking in” to locations), along with BlackBerry Maps integration for viewing maps of their location. [BlackBerry App World]
