    As in the title, looking for some must have apps for Blackberry (switching from Note 4). I had a Red Passport, but not long enough before my wife stole it, but I have a white one on the way. I am aware of Home Screen Plus, but outside of that what do you use / can't live without. {i.e.: Twitter, IG, etc}. Any issues that are inherent with that app due to the Passport, etc? I really only use SnapChat, Candy Crush Soda Saga, Trivia Crack & DeviantArt from Android. Thanks!

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    I can't speak to the games -- sorry. I would suggest that, once you have the new Passport in hand, you check out the "Staff Picks" and "Starter Kit" apps on the main page of BlackBerry World. You'll also have the Amazon App store to look for any of your old Android favorites that may not be in BB World.

    Snapchat is not working for me. I downloaded the version straight off of snap. Every time I take a picture it just turns to a black screen and sends a blank black picture. It will show text if I write text but that's it. I'm also curious what happened to snap2chat. I can't seem to find it on blackberry world.

    Snapchat shut down all 3rd party apps, and threaten closing accounts if using them. It disappeared from Windows Phone as well.

    Thanks all -- I will take a look at them all!

    Try Dice with Buddies from Snap. I have lots of my Facebook friends that play DwB, and it is a nice time-killer game.

    My personal favorites are:

    Instant for monitoring how much time I'm on my phone
    Writer for quick note taking
    TaskMaster instead of Remember because I prefer the slimmer UI
    Enpass for keeping track of my passwords
    Sketchbook for doodling
    SilentKeys for jotting out a quick message when you don't want the sound of the keyboard (in meetings, bed, etc)

    If you do a lot of copy&paste, or you are repetitively typing the same things, get ClipMan, the top-notch clipboard manager...

    You can lock things that you use frequently, to prevent them from getting deleted when you clear the cache...

    I have had work-wide for a long time but I fail to see its usefulness.
    You cannot really open two email messages side by side, or email and the word editor side by side to cut and paste between them.
    It needs a lot of work to improve its functionality.

    If you want a browser with adblocking, you might wanna look into Browsie Browser. (I'm the developer)

    Wow! What a great browser! I was looking for one that had a private browsing option just yesterday and purchased Alpha Browser. It did the job but the UI is very... unique. I wish I'd found Browsie yesterday. It has private mode, adblocking, and an elegant UI that is very close to stock to boot. And it's only a buck! Thanks!

    Works great on the Passport. I think I may have a new favourite app!

    Daan, I'm the guy who contacted you yesterday regarding the issue where I couldn't browse after using X keyboard shortcut to close tabs. No clue what happened, but it fixed itself.

    Best third party browser hands down. Somewhat unrelated question, do you know how to set the default browser that BlackBerry Assistant uses when conducting a search? I've set Browsie as default but it'll still open stock Browser for searches. Probably not possible.

    Only recommendation is to please add a keyboard shortcut for Mobile/Desktop rendering. It's so much better to have the option right there without having to go into Dev settings, and a keyboard shortcut would put the icing on the cake!

    Considering he comes from a Note 4, he will most likely be very disappointed with Work Wide, so please do not get his hopes up.
