The next time someone sends you a picture over BBM, if you’d like to get a higher quality version of the picture all you need to do is tap and hold the image followed by tapping Request High Quality on the menu that appears on the right.
If you are using BBM for Windows Phone, tap and hold the image followed by tapping request high quality.
After doing this, the person who sent you the picture can choose to send you a higher quality version or optionally say no to the request.
Keep in mind, requesting and sending higher quality images will use a bit more data than a regular picture, so I’d recommend using this feature when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or hotspot.
To save a picture someone sends you using BBM, tap and hold the image followed by selecting Save Image from the menu that appears on the right.

SignEasy is one of the best productivity apps available on mobile. It makes signing documents a breeze and even though it’s an Android port, the app works great on BlackBerry 10. Recently, the app has had some major updates including:
- Ability to prefill forms
- Automatic backup of important documents
- Ability to sign in using another device in an emergency situation
- Sign offline even while not connected to the internet
If you’re a BlackBerry 10 user, the company has said “We are going to look at the response that we get from BlackBerry 10 users before we decide to update the app.” So make sure to Tweet at the company and let them know in the comments on their site. Surely they’ll be able to update the Android port on BlackBerry 10 quite easily.
Sensassure is an early stage startup that has a really cool product with big implications. The product is a connected diaper with a sensor that tracks whether incontinent seniors have soiled themselves. Sure, it’s a bit of a gross problem to tackle, but it’s a problem that’s becoming increasingly important as the North American population ages.
