A Quick Review of 50 Applications for the BlackBerry Torch


blackberry app list

How many apps do you have on your device? Turns out I have 50. I thought I would go through each one of them with a very quick, one sentence review of each. If you go through the list and know an app that’s better than the one I have, please recommend in the comments. I wouldn’t recommend this many apps as I find the device a little on the sluggish side. If you want your Torch running at full speed, it’s probably best to keep it to a minimal number of apps that you use on a constant basis. Click through for a quick review of 50 apps for the Torch:

Fixmo Raises $6.5 Million for Enterprise Mobile Management and Protection Solution


It’s great to hear about Canadian companies raising funds as it seems Silicon Valley seems to be eating all the cash these days. Fixmo, a company that delves in both enterprise and consumer mobile solutions and is based in Toronto, Canada, has raised $6.5 million in financing. The Series B funding round was led by new investor Panorama Capital, with existing investors Rho Ventures Canada, iNovia Capital, Extreme Venture Partners and management participating. The funding is going to help grow Fixmo’s enterprise mobile management and protection solutions business which was all the rage at BlackBerry World this year.

The Fixmo solution provides device assurance, policy compliance, and device audit solutions, as well as tools that allow enterprises to manage their entire mobile infrastructure, end-to-end, through a single interface. It also probably helps that the Co-Founder and CEO Rick Segal is well versed in raising capital, as he used to be with the BlackBerry Partners Fund.
