** Superb update — The Photo Editor app is now #1 on App World**
Photo Editor for BlackBerry is an easy to use and very useful app for Blackberry smart phones. It allows you to edit your photos on the go and share it with friends and family. I’m proud to be part of the team who developed this simple Photo Editor app that has reached the top 5 apps on the BlackBerry’s official App-World. Photo Editor has also won the regional selection award and it has been labeled as BlackBerry Super App. Creativity at it’s best, made in Pakistan.
BlackBerry App World has been quite a decent place to get apps for your phone. If you are a BlackBerry user, you know what I mean, and if you don’t, you will see the change very soon because of the two announcements, one of which came just a couple of days ago.
BlackBerry waives the registration and submission fees
Though, the site says it’s a limited time offer, which it really could be, but I can predict that it will continue to be a permanent offer. I have a reason to believe so, because App-World has been hungry for getting more content published by third party and grow the store very quickly. Moreover, the hunger is reflected in another change that came pretty much un-announced or was less visible.
BlackBerry App World accepts 0.99 and 1.99 apps now
This happened more than a month ago. Before that, the BlackBerry apps prices were restricted to be $2.99 as a minimum or Free if the vendor wants. The idea of adding smaller price slab possibility is to allow vendors to sell lesser value apps and to bring cut-throat competition causing users to pull down their app and content prices even lower than 2.99.
On the positive side, BlackBerry App-World, with above two changes will drastically grow in next few months in terms of number of apps and themes available. The users will have a wider set of options when choosing and downloading apps.
On the down side, the users will come across more useless apps that usually don’t add any value for them. As a result they will end up wasting time and money on these apps, at least some of them will, till the app gets negative reviews to land at the bottom.
So, here we are with the change and lets watch it happening now!
Finally a photo editing software that is feature rich, simple and easy to use. If you are looking for a software that allows you to edit the photos you take on your BlackBerry, wait no further, download “Photo Editor” on your phone and see the magic.
The editor allows you to crop out unwanted edges and corners of the photos, lets you rotate them before you email them, gives you the liberty and style to change your photo to sapia or black’n white after you’ve taken it and even you can adjust the brightness and contrast of your photo.
You can downloadthe app here or if you are curious, here is a simple example walkthrough.
I took this photo using my BlackBerry 9700
It’s okay on the device but when sending the photo to a PC, this should be rotated first, so first thing I do is launch the photo editor to edit this photo before sending.
I’ve already posted a number of useful apps that you should at least have on your BlackBerry phones to start with. Today I’ll give you a few more apps links to try out. If you have not tried these apps out, I’m sure you’ll love them. Here is today’s list:
