CrackBerry — The App!

CrackBerry — The App!


The No. 1 source for all things BlackBerry is now on Android and in Google Play! Welcome to the official Android app for CrackBerry.com. If you're a fan of the Android Central app (http://phon.es/acapp), you'll find yourself right at home here. It's the same native Android experience, with the same features.

That includes:

★ The latest from the CrackBerry blog. That means news, reviews, editorials — everything we write, you get here.
★ Widgets for the home screen and lock screen.
★ Comment on stories. Just sign in with your Mobile Nations Passport account. Or use your Google, Twitter, Facebook or Microsoft log-ins.
★ You can tip us to BlackBerry news stories, right from the app.
★ Full access to the CrackBerry Forums. It's not quite a 1:1 experience with the dedicated Tapatalk app, but we're working on it all the time.
★ Videos: Watch every Cracktastic video we've ever uploaded to YouTube.
★ Podcasts: Every episode of the CrackBerry Podcast is available in the app.
★ Shop: We've made it easier than ever to pick up the latest charger, cable, dock, headset — all from the folks you trust at Shop CrackBerry.

APP PERMISSIONS IN PLAIN ENGLISH

Here's why this app asks permission for certain things, in plain English:
★ Modify, read or delete the contents of your USB storage: This is for storing the images and little thumbnails in the app, so that it doesn't have to download them each and every time. That'd be bad.
★ Full network access: Everything we do comes from the Internet. Therefore, this app needs access to the Internet.
★ Access Network State: We use Quantcast and Flurry analytics in addition to Google's analytics. We've used Quantcast on the traditional web side of things forever (http://www.quantcast.com/androidcentral.com) as sort of a transparent look at traffic. Flurry gives us an anonymous look at how and where our app is being used, and it'll help us make the app better. More than 300,000 apps use Flurry analytics. You can find out more at http://www.flurry.com/flurry-analytics.html.
★ Set wallpaper: A future update will give access to the CrackBerry Wallpaper Gallery, from where you'll be able to download and set your favorite wallpapers.
★ Test access to protected storage: It's possible for USB storage (see the first bullet point here) to be protected. This tests for that and declares that it's testing for that.
