Fill up your BlackBerry PlayBook with these FREE Pinoy apps

The BlackBerry PlayBook may be lacking in the app department but Filipino PlayBook app developers made sure that there are a handful of useful apps that would cater to Pinoys.

Check out these free apps made by Filipino developers for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

MMDA for BlackBerry


If you bring your PlayBook with you whenever you drive around the city then this app is a must to navigate your way through Metro Manila traffic. Plan your trip by checking the traffic situation in areas like EDSA, C5, SLEX, Roxas Blvd, Ortigas, Commonwealth, Marcos Highway, Katipunan, Espana, & Quezon Ave. MMDA FAQs and a Directory are also included for your guidance.

PH Weather

Whever you’re planning to take a trip it is important to have an idea on what the weather it might be like during those dates. It may be sunny in Manila but it may not be when you arrive in Davao. PH Weather app shows updates on Philippine weather conditions, forecasts and news, gathered from the DOST-PAGASA and other media sources. The satellite images cover not just the Philippines, but also Taiwan and neighboring South East Asian countries. Images can be animated and supports panning, zooming and pinch-to-zoom.

Deal Detector

Pinoys are really fond of those deal sites sprouting everywhere and it’s getting hard keeping track of new deals, expiring deals, or basically every deal that they offer. If you don’t want to floor your mail from newsletters with these deal sites, get the Deal Detector for the BlackBerry PlayBook instead.

With Deal Detector, you can see all the best deals in town, check how far away you are from them, get notified everytime a new deal is available, and browse through local deals even without internet connection.



Fancy a game of Dama with your pops? If you still know how to play it that is. The Dama app for the PlayBook showcases two popular forms of Filipino Dama – Dama and Perdigana, as well as the standard English Draughts, also known as Checkers.

Support the Filipino app developers folks. I’m sure a download coming from you will go a long way in inspiring them to create more meaningful apps for Filipinos.
