Creative Writing Apps for BlackBerry 10

Name Dice BlackBerry 10 app on BlackBerry WorldRight before the ACT Fly-In, we were able to attend BlackBerry Live 2013 in Orlando. Each attendee received a BlackBerry Z10 as part of the registration, compliments of Brightstar. Everyone spent some time setting up their devices and downloading the conference app to manage their schedules. This was a lot of fun, and it encouraged those of us who were unfamiliar with BlackBerry to jump right in and use it. Visiting the exhibitors and the Jam Space (developer hangout) got us inspired to hurry up and get our apps on the BlackBerry 10.

We are very happy to present our most popular educational apps now available in BlackBerry World! Check them out: Lists for WritersStory Dice, and Name Dice.

BlackBerry 10 Writing Apps By Thinkamingo

Sports Card Pro series updates

Our Sports Card Pro series of apps have been updated.

We’ve added some additional color variations of the current card template design. We’re looking forward to releasing additional template designs in the near future.

The app now fully supports retina 4″ devices (iPhone 5 and iPod touch 5th generation).

There have been a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.

November is National Novel Writing Month, aka NaNoWriMo

What the heck is NaNoWriMo? Well, it’s a crazy good time! National Novel Writing Month is an event held during the 30 days of November where the goal is to write 50,000 words. Yep. That’s a lot of words. All in November.

The Young Writers Program is an educational extension of NaNoWriMo to encourage writers of all ages to write for fun! The goal for students is 1,000-10,000 words. Students of all ages can accomplish 1,000 words in a month. That’s a mere 34 words each day. One bonus of the YWP is that each student that successfully reaches his/her goal receives five (5) free paperback copies of their book! Totally awesome!

Thinkamingo’s first and most popular app, Lists for Writers, was born out of our own personal list of lists that we’d each been keeping for writing projects. This week, it is the first app listed in Cult of Mac’s National Novel Writing Month App Superguide!

It’s safe to say that Lists for Writers is a “must have” app. With over 10,000 users, and more downloads every day, we know that people love it!
