Fat Fingers for BlackBerry PlayBook now in App World

FatFingers is an application for finding misspelt items on eBay. Compatible with most major eBay websites, this application is sure to save you money on your eBay shopping. The application is based of the website FatFingers.com. I had never really used the FatFingers service, but what struck me about the app was the very nice design of the application itself!   If you are an eBay power user then I could see where this app/service would come in quite handy when trying to score a super low price on an item. If you, indeed, are an eBay power user, FatFingers…

Important information regarding OSBB app for PlayBook update v1.5

Today, an update for the OSBB PlayBook app v1.5 has gone live in App World! We are very excited about this, but we need to ask a favor of you! The new OSBB app no longer relies on the Android runtime, and when going from Android app, to native PlayBook app via App World update, there seems to be an issue. Due to the way the Android runtime functions on PlayBook, it may be necessary for users to delete the previous version of the OSBB app, reboot their PlayBook, and then re-install the updated application. There have also been reports…

Better put this notification here: This was an April Fools joke.

Via Seeking Alpha - "Is There Asymmetrical Coverage Of Research In Motion In The Media?"

Normally I don't repost stories from other NetBlogs; I'm of the opinion that doing so doesn't really add to the total collective of knowledge of the online community. However, every once in a while I'll run into an article that's beyond excellent. This article from Seeking Alpha was one of those articles. And seeing as how I'm super busy prepping for finals, I figured it wouldn't hurt for me to share it here. The article, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, is "Is There Asymmetrical Coverage Of Research In Motion In The Media?" Most BlackBerry…

Very useful application Star CSV now available for PlayBook

If you are like me, you need applications that can help your business thrive (which is one reason I love BlackBerry). Documents-to-Go comes preloaded on the PlayBook and it is very useful, but unfortunately the spreadsheet application cannot open/import and parse CSV files. I have to deal with CSV files on a daily basis for inventory reasons and also for viewing reports from my App World seller account. However, I can now open and edit CSV files on my PlayBook via the new app Star CSV! I may be a dork, but this excites me! The app is available now…

Netflix Petition on Change.org

This morning Alec Saunders (@asaunders, VP Developer Relations at RIM) retweeted an link to an online petition on change.org to Netflix to get a Playbook app. While I don't have a Netflix account anymore, I figured it wouldn't hurt to sign this to let Netflix know (again) that people are interested. As of right now, the petition has almost 250 signitures. Head on over and sign it BlackBerry users! http://www.change.org/petitions/netflix-offer-support-for-rim-blackberry-devices#

Download Android Apps directly to your PC for sideloading

Update No2: The developer, after pulling the plugin yesterday, made it available again with a modification that prevents you from downloading paid apps with the plugin. Although this might prevent you from downloading apps which you paid for, I believe it is an excellent remedy for a valid concern. And remember, you can always extract any apps you've purchased from your Android phone (although please check the developer's terms of use before you load it on your Playbook to make sure it's ok for you to do so). This morning I saw an article over on Android Central that I…
