BBM used to be one of the only reasons to buy a BlackBerry. So when CEO John Chen decided to open up the messaging app to iOS and Android users, the executive was taking a big risk. Remember, this was before the release of the BlackBerry Priv, the first ‘Berry to be powered by Android. But Chen wasn’t too concerned with losing hardware sales because he was already looking at BlackBerry as a software company.

He knew he was on the right track when Facebook paid $21.8 billion to buy WhatsApp. If the latter was worth almost $22 billion, Chen reasoned that BBM had to be worth a few billion. …


New mobile browser Cake offers pre-loaded search results; app is available for iOS and Android now

A new mobile browser with a unique method for reading search results has launched today. With the Cake Browser, instead of scrolling through a list of links, users swipe through search results as web pages.

iOS 11.3 App Store will finally let you sort app reviews

The Apple App Store has had reviews of the different apps for years now. And that’s a useful thing — especially if you are considering whether to buy an app — it lets you get the opinions of other users before making the “Buy it now” decision. But it’s very easy for a comments and ratings section to get cluttered with either unhelpful, generic, or just very repetitive opinions.

Other services battle this by letting you sort the comments — you can look at the ones that rated the product high, you can look at the ones that rated it low, or even filter out the reviews …
