MoonCalc Pro for BB10 now with Moon eclipse calculations

MoonCalc Pro is probably the most advanced Moon tool for smartphones. There's little - if ANY - Moon related data or calculations that this application wouldn't be providing (all current astronomical data and orbit parameters, full and new Moons, perigees and apogees, full and new Supermoons, Moon compass, Moon graph, and more) and the latest update even adds calculation of Moon eclipses (penumbral, partial and total), making this application 100% complete.  MoonCalc Pro is a Built For BlackBerry certified application. See previous posts for more details.

MoonCalc Pro for BB10 is available in the BlackBerry World store.

Headless Torch for BB10 - the easiest and quickest access to flashlight

Do you find it annoying that whenever you need to quickly use your phone as flashlight you need to unlock it, go through multiple screens and select it from the quick menu, and then disable it the same cumbersome way?

Headless Torch is a tiny but useful tool - a headless service working invisibly in the background, providing the quickest and easiest access to the flashlight function - just by double pressing the middle Media button at any time, even when the phone is locked (if you choose so). Made to be as simple and lightweight as possible, with no unnecessary options, at virtually zero CPU or battery usage. There are several modes of operation and the button can be blocked automatically when the device is holstered. An optional camera shutter sound can be enabled or disabled, according to your liking.

From now on, with this tool you'll be able to switch flashlight on and off within half a second.

Headless Torch is available in the BlackBerry World store.

PanoRIMio for BB10 updated

PanoRIMio is a geolocation-based photo viewer, letting you instantly watch photos of virtually any location in the world, or simply enjoy countless stunning views and amazing landscapes. It uses Google's Panoramio service consisting of more than 70 million high-quality, user-submitted photos of locations. Multiple location selection options (address, coordinates, map, GPS), ability to find photos by tag/keyword, several viewing modes including a slideshow, and more, make this application stand out compared to other apps of this kind. It is also integrated with Google Maps and Street View, so that you can always see the exact place a picture was taken at. One of its advantages is also that it shows EXCLUSIVELY photos of places, panoramas, landscapes, etc., NOT spoiled by countless selfies,family pictures or other unrelated stuff like that, which is usually the case in other similar apps.

PanoRIMio 1.1.0 update brings the following improvements:
  • added "Random Locations" option - it shows an endless stream of the most beautiful pictures from randomly selected locations in the world. Good if you just want to enjoy stunning views rather than any specific place. Especially nice in slideshow mode as makes the slideshow virtually endless 
  • added an option to play music (user-selected audio file) during slideshow
  • added an option in Settings to keep the screen awake during slideshow 
  • added an option to either auto-pause slideshow every 50 minutes (a protection against leaving it running unattended) or run continuously
  • in single image (details) view, swipe to the left for the next image
  • 'peek' (BB10 standard gesture) to go back to previous screen enabled accross the whole application
  • redesigned the UI to make it consistent with BB10 UI guidelines
  • other small tweaks and improvements
  • submitted for Built For BlackBerry approval, still waiting (it now takes ages).
PanoRIMio is available in the BlackBerry World store.
