At our offices in downtown Ottawa, we have a problem where our door requires a biometric thumbprint scan in order to get in so we have to rely on people knocking to receive guests and deliveries. This doesn’t work so well when everyone in the office has headphones on and we can’t hear anyone knocking. The great thing is that we all have BlackBerry PlayBooks at our desk and the video chat system can act as a visual notification so you can not only know when someone is at the door, but you can see who is there too.

We’ve updated the BlackBerryCool native app to support Disqus comments as well as some bug fixes. The app looks a little nicer too although the icon isn’t great if you’re using a dark wallpaper. The BlackBerryCool app also supports Android, so if you hit the download link or scan the QR code, you can grab the Android version.

BlackBerryCool is now working with Bplay to serve apps, games, themes and ringtones. We still have a mobihand account so you can find your apps on our store. The difference is that the site no longer links to Mobihand and we’re going to be working with Bplay to help build their app catalog. This new change won’t affect coverage in any way, and the only difference is we’re making it easier to find premium content. Here are the links to our store sections:
The main store page is at blackberrycool.bplay.com.
Our games page is at blackberrycool.bplay.com/games.
Themes can be found at blackberrycool.bplay.com/themes.
Ringtones are here blackberrycool.bplay.com/ringtones.
Also, be sure to check out the mobile versions as they’re fully optimized and look great on touchscreens. Enjoy!
