PlayBook Dev Team Now Working on Refining the PlayBook Browser

We know that RIM was pushing hard to deliver a solid browser in PlayBook OS 2.0 that blew past the competition in speed and standards compliance.

SecuStore PlayBook Password Manager With Dropbox Backup

SecuStore is an interesting new password manager for the PlayBook built on WebWorks. It started as a WebOS app and now is available on the PlayBook, iOS, and Google Chrome.

Free AndroIRC IRC Client Ported to the BlackBerry PlayBook (Android)

The Android Player on the BlackBerry PlayBook just brought us another useful port. This time we have AndroIRC which is a free IRC client. Its pretty feature packed which is nice though I really wish we had a good native IRC client… I have not had a chance to really put AndroIRC through its paces…

Usually a BlackBerry Bridge update is a sign of an upcoming update to the BlackBerry PlayBook OS but I am not sure this time. RIM has updated the BlackBerry Bridge app in App World to v2.0.0.26 from the previous v2.0.0.25. That is just a tiny jump that probably just resolves a few bugs. Either way…

We mentioned Sketch W Friends earlier in the month as a cross platform mix between Pictionary and Charades for the PlayBook, iOS, and Android. The game is pretty cool but the one main downside was that there was no free trial for the $1.99 game. Now Xlabz has corrected that by releasing a free trial…
