Announced a few hours ago in Blackberry Live that the famous BBM Messenger is gonna be across platform app which means that iPhone & Android users gonna be able to simply download BBM from their App Store.
It’s a bold move from Blackberry to gain more users back on BBM but My initial thought that they are slowly killing themselves coz other than security Blackberry had this unique feature which now can be available on iOS & Android.
How do you usually pay your mobile bills & Network’s provider subscribtions ?
Do you waste your time going through different websites just to find a certain product & compare each one ?
Do you own a small business & couldn’t find an online payment method suitable for your customers ?
Im glad to announce that a new era for mobile payment has arrived. A new way to get away from all the annoyance mentioned above. We live in a mobile world where more than 35% of our time (according to some study) is spent using our mobiles & PCs and one of the most annoying things to do is sell & buy stuff online mainly because most of the local services don’t provide online payment through their websites, or if the do some are not user or mobile friendly, well thats all gonna change with TAP.
Last week we had a chance to meet Ali Abu-Alhasan One of the master minds behind Tap, to get a preview of this new service that I believe gonna be a big hit in Kuwait. Aziz & I burned Ali with our questions and concerns & he answered all our question professionally & honesty. We are really proud of those awesome Kuwaiti developers behind Tap.
Tap is a web app that enables you to buy, pay your bills and sell your products/services online without the need to go to the official website of the seller. Whats really interesting about Tap is the ability to create your business/personal profile and start selling your products within minutes without the need to worry about security, all small businesses gonna benefit from this service and you the cunsumer are the beneficiary, paying your bills, subscriptions, buying stuff and browsing through various products while enjoying your coffee or being in your comfort zone.
Check the demo above and be amazed.
Tap is basically a web app which is much better in my personal opinion than a mobile app, you just log into it from you browser no matter what mobile you are using (iphone, Android, Blackberry) and thats the main advantage of a web app, just open your browser and you are browsing through an app-like interface. Tap will official launch on May 6th but the site is live now for you to preview.

Its been a while since Blackberry z10 have been released and many having been having issues with migrating their contacts to the new Z10. What Im about to explain is not Z10 specific actually its the method i always use to keep my contacts synchronised across all my mobile phones which is pretty simple but unfortunately not explain much so no matter whether you are using a Blackberry, Android or iOS you may use this method to transfer your contacts between those platforms.
The first step you will need to do is to transfer all your contacts from your old phone to your PC or Mac using (iTunes, OutLook, Kies) depending on what you your old mobile is, its a bit of a hassle but trust it you wont have to suffer from it again.
Back on your PC open Outlook ( if you are using Windows) or Contacts application (if you are on a Mac) Go to File Export Contact vcf File. This option will export all your contacts in One file and please please try to remember where you are saving that file.
Now go to your email account, I prefer using an email account that you dont have Contacts already stored in it so you dont mix up your mobile contacts with email contacts. I would highly recommend using Gmail, OutLook or Live cause through my experience they work great with syncing. Go to your email account and choose the Contact tab and choose Import Contact , when promoted choose the file you have saved in the previous step.
Your contacts should be now saved on your email address and as you add your email to your new phone just choose to sync contacts & email
Great news for all Blackberry 10 users, just a few minutes ago whatsapp just got released on Blackberry World (app store) so start downloading it.

We have all been there, driving in own car stuck in traffic fed up with listening to music and maybe looking for something more informative to listen to and feed our mind while wasting those minutes. We waste precious minutes of our lives driving, waiting inline, waiting for a friend to arrive, many minutes through the day get wasted and the first thing anyone does to waste time especially when driving is to turn on their radio and start listening to some kind of horrible radio show no matter whether they like it or not and frankly between all the radio shows we have here in Kuwait I can only name a couple that really worth listening to, some are funny and some are just discussing whats going on in Q8 and the rest are cheesy horrible shows that should get banned. So what if you wanted to listen to a show talking about a specific topic that may intriguer your interest Technology, engineering, marketing or even just a video game show we dont really have this kind of shows, not to mention those horrible cheesy radio commercials that are all preformed by one guy who is always amazed and shocked by the latest offer from X company and the typical woman talking to her friend about X company offer. OMG those ads are so freaken horrible.
I know I went off topic with those ads but the solution that i was surprised many dont know is called Podcast, Podcast is a prerecorded radio shows inorder for you to get the latest news, reviews, general talk or even professional analysis of a certain topic some famous networks have their own podcasts like CNN, ESPN, Engadget, and many other. The purpose of a podcast is to feed your mind by listening to something that interests you or even entertains you in your own time you just download or even stream the episode to your mobile/laptop/iPod and listen to it whenever suits you. Ive been a podcast listener for 3 years now and Im so surprised that some dont even know what it is so i had to at least try to explain it in this post.
Many podcast apps are available in the Apple Store, Google Play Store & Blackberry World Store so to help you out and not make this post long I’ll mention my favorite Apps that I personally use and the same thing apply to all of them just open the app search for a certain topic that you like Football, Technology, Fashion or search for a certain network like CNN and add it to your list and listening.
My favorite apps PocketCasts available on iOS and Android & if you are using Blackberry Z10 try Nobex and AntennaPod.
Do you agree with me that most of our radio shows are just cheesy and not worth listening to ????
