Mobile Movie Trailers App for BlackBerry now Available

mobile movie trailers blackberry

I’m  a movie buff and  really enjoy this mobile web app to watch trailers on my BlackBerry Device. Currently this app only has national releases showing in the United States and everyday I see trailers being added. If you do use the view showtimes section it does take a bit of time to display, but it’s always accurate and shows theaters close to my area. I also really like that on most trailers you can see the movie’s social links and movie homepage for those that have one.

Details: Search and Watch Movie Trailers on your BlackBerry Device. Trailers are updated and added everyday. As of right now, we only list National Movie Release Trailers for the United States Only.

This application uses data. Always be aware of your Data Usage. This app is a launcher to our Mobile Web App. Why a Launcher? This site is updated Daily, so we don’t want to update the app everyday in BlackBerry World and this helps keep the size of the application small on your device. This app would drive you nuts if we used push notifications.

When using Showtime Search, please allow at least 30 seconds for the search to complete.The speed of the search also depends on your connection speed. We search up to a 50 mile radius so it takes time to pull in all that information.

BlackBerry Acquires Secusmart Encryption Service


Today, BlackBerry held a Security Summit in New York City to discuss the importance of mobile security. At the event, BlackBerry made a strategic announcement to acquire Secusmart to combat the type of threats that are becoming more common such as electronic eavesdropping and data theft.

Additionally, BlackBerry also announced BlackBerry Guardian which combines Trend Micro’s Mobile App Reputation Service to comprehensively vet apps on the BlackBerry storefront to further protect users’ privacy and security. Please read this blog post for more details on this news.

Press Release:

BlackBerry Reinforces Mobile Security Leadership with Acquisition of Secusmart

Waterloo, ON – BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY; TSX: BB), a world leader in mobile communications, has entered into an agreement to acquire Secusmart GmbH, a leader in high-security voice and data encryption and anti-eavesdropping solutions for government organizations, enterprises and telecommunications service providers in Germany and internationally.

The transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary conditions, including the receipt of regulatory approvals.

“We are always improving our security solutions to keep up with the growing complexity of enterprise mobility, with devices being used for more critical tasks and to store more critical information, and security attacks becoming more sophisticated,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO, BlackBerry. “The acquisition of Secusmart underscores our focus on addressing growing security costs and threats ranging from individual privacy to national security. This acquisition bolsters our security solutions with leading voice and data encryption and anti-eavesdropping technologies, and furthers BlackBerry’s security leadership in end-to-end mobile solutions.”

BlackBerry and Secusmart have previously partnered to offer Secusmart’s innovative technology to customers that have the most demanding security needs. In fact, last year, the SecuSUITE for BlackBerry® 10 solution was selected by Germany’s Federal Office for Information Security for classified communications for the country’s highest public officials. Through this collaboration, the two companies have provided Secusmart-equipped BlackBerry smartphones to a significant number of German government agencies and almost all German government ministries and leaders, including Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“This transaction is a fantastic opportunity to accelerate growth in the market for high-end secure communications solutions, driven by the need to combat electronic eavesdropping and data theft,” said Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, Managing Director of Secusmart. “Secusmart and BlackBerry’s solution already meets the highest security requirements of the German federal authorities and NATO for restricted communications. We see significant opportunities to introduce Secusmart’s solutions to more of BlackBerry’s government and enterprise customers around the world.”

BlackBerry’s acquisition of Secusmart is the latest demonstration of the company’s commitment to being the first name in enterprise mobile security. This commitment is why BlackBerry customers include all G7 governments, 16 of the G20 governments, 10 out of 10 of the largest global enterprises in each of the pharmaceutical, legal and automotive industries, and the five largest oil and gas companies. BlackBerry has more security certifications than any other vendor and is the only mobility solution to receive “Full Operational Capability” (FOC) approval to run on U.S. Department of Defense networks.

Santa’s Monster Shootout for BlackBerry 10 Touch Devices

Santas Shootout Blackberry Free Game

Have a little Christmas in July, with Santa’s Monster Shootout for the Z10, Z30, Z3, Porsche Design P9982 and PlayBook.  I have been playing this game for a little over a week and yet to be disappointed. I started playing the game on my Z10 and now enjoy it on my PlayBook as well.

Game play is awesome with no lag and a pretty cool sound track as well. The object is simple and the easy to use UI makes it simple to blast away the monsters and you improve your guns and climb the levels.

The only negative are the ad’s that pop up between levels but it’s just one and very simple to close and move on with game play. Since the game is free, the ad’s are not a big deal.

Details: Snowy valleys, Christmas bells and Santa Claus is preparing gifts for Christmas.
A normal December. Really? No, something is different this year…

Monsters and Zombies from all the world are trying to steal the gift packages, they want it all and
they want it now.

But Santa don’t own just a sack full of gifts and a rod… he also have guns, big guns.
Guns to defeat infinite waves of monsters to protect the gift packages.

Help Santa to get rid of the evil breed and bring us happy holidays!

How To Play:
The primary weapon has infinite ammo, it is not very strong but always available.
Shoot as many enemies you can to earn money for purchasing new pistols, guns and refill ammo in the shop.

Pick up ammo clips and health packages to keep you alive while playing a level. On each level, you must fight against
a big end monster to go to the next level. From level to level the game gets harder.

– use arrows in the left side to work through the level
– use the shot button on the right side to shoot
– if you have purchased and picked a gun, switch between the new gun and the primary weapon

MACE Tower Defense Game for BlackBerry 10 All Touch Devices

MACE Defense Game BB10 Touch Devices

Well it’s really not a mystery that I love Defense style games, and MACE Tower Defense is probably my new favorite of all of them.  Great audio, graphics and UI make this a superb game to have on your PlayBook, Z10, Z3, Z30 or Porsche Design P9982. MACE tower defense offers a great free version with a few ad’s between stages, but once I saw how nice the free version was, I spent 1.99 for the full version on my PlayBook (posted here). and did receive 3000 credits start capital of M.A.C.E. Defense.

On my Z10 I am making my way through with the free version and although I did not get the upfront credits, I am advancing through the levels.

MACE Defense is a classic tower defense game with unique towers and enemies and an ingame shop system for getting better towers, upgrade existing towers and buy special items (Atom Bomb, Splash Bomb, Air supply).
You can earn coins for the shop with getting boss enemies, saved lives and unlock new maps.

But it is not only placing, upgrading or selling a tower – in M.A.C.E. TD you can improve your game play with placing mines, Block walls and electric Fields direct on the path and you can also take control over a tower s direction and target. This player controlled action is a unique game mode within a defense game for hitting the enemy you want!

Availability PlayBook, Z10, Z3, Z30 or Porsche Design P9982
