While details are scant at the moment, Blackberry just dropped a bomb at BBLive: Blackberry Messenger is coming to iOS and Android "this summer" as a standalone application. After years of rumors, the company is finally taking the plunge and making its most popular app multi-platform. Brilliant.

The app will start initially be released with support for "messaging and groups," though additional support for for "voice, screen share, and [...] channels" will come later.

We've teamed up with Handy Apps several times in the past to give away some fantastic devices. Nexus 7s, Galaxy Note IIs, Xperia Zs, and many more have all found new homes thanks to our partnership with Handy Apps. But it's never just about giving stuff away – these guys make some fantastic and useful application. In fact, they may even be handy.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below.

Checking in, Instagramming, Tweeting, and updating statuses are something most of us do on a regular basis. It's a way for us to share with our friends and family what's going on in our lives; where we're at physically, mentally, and/or emotionally; and an overall fun way to interact and kill time. We, as people, are more socially connected than we've ever been thanks to modern technology.

But there's a missed mark here.

Looks like ASUS has something up its sleeve for Computex this year, as it just released a rather uninformative teaser for the event. Of course, teasers are supposed to be pretty uninformative, so I guess this one is doing its job.

Throughout the video we get brief glimpses of past ASUS products, along with what could be some upcoming products. The most notable image in the bunch comes close to the end of the video, with what appears to to be a new stylus-sporting tablet:

Of course, there's no indication that any of this is Android-related; given ASUS' past dedication to the OS, however, it's unlikely that we won't see at least one new gadget with our favorite open source OS running on it.

We first caught a glimpse of Gameloft's Team Fortress 2 clone Blitz Brigade back in late January. If you've been chomping at the bit to get in on the action since then, the day has finally arrived: BB is now live in the Play Store.

The game was only published this morning, but it already has an unprecedented 450+ (mostly positive) ratings in the store – a true testament to the excitement surrounding the title.

We've come across a pretty decent bundle of apps and games with less-than-normal price tags today. Since you probably already understand what this post is all about, let's cut the fluff and get right into it, shall we?

Update: We've been adding new sales since the post went up towards the bottom of the post.

As always, we'll update if we find more, so check back if you like to save money.

When it comes to Twitter clients on Android, Falcon Pro is hard to beat. It's fast, functional, and dang pretty to look at. Aside from that, though, it's also very well-supported, as the dev is constantly adding new features or fixing bugs.

Today's update is no different, as it brings a handful of new customizations to the client, including a "sexy" new font and the option to move the action bar to the bottom:

#v1.9 - 09/05/2013
- New : sexy font (still Roboto based)
- New : position holding in Lists
- New : load up to 1000 tweets / refresh
- New : option to set the action bar on the bottom.

I may have just heard about focus- and relaxation-inducing music site Focus@Will, but that hasn't stopped me from already falling in love with it. For much of my stare-at-a-screen-all-day career, I've actually wanted a service like this, and even have a few stations on Pandora and Spotify that almost mimic the service. Now that I've found F@W, though, those stations are essentially defunct.

What is Focus@Will?

That's probably the biggest question on your mind right now.

When I reviewed the First, I realized it was much, much more than just a Facebook experience device. Sure, it's sporting Home out of the box, flashes a Facebook logo during the boot process, and is adorned with that same logo on the back, but it's not just about Facebook. This little diamond in the rough is running stock Android 4.1.2 beneath Facebook Home, so you're quite literally three (or so) taps away from a Nexus-like experience.
