Lately I’ve become a bit bored with the games on my BlackBerry. I’ve gone through the ones that interest me on our 250 free BlackBerry games list, so now it’s time to do a bit more exploring. That means heading to the BBGeeks Store. The catch, though, is that while I’m willing to pay for useful applications, I’m not willing to pay much, if anything, for games. I spend enough on console games that I can’t justify creating extra budget for mobile games. So I tend to look at the free games. That led me to a series called Keys. It’s a quiz application for OS 6 that is surprisingly fun. If you’re a Torch owner, you might want to give it a look. The main application has a number of different subjects. For the trial I did state capitals, thinking it would be easy. While it is, in a way, it’s not exactly what I had in mind. The state capital starts with a bunch of question marks, and you have to fill in the blanks. Letters reveal themselves one at a time, making your guessing a bit easier. At the same time, image results scroll along the bottom. So there’s plenty of associative information to help you get the correct answer. There are plenty of other learning techniques in the application, like a memory game, flash cards, and more. Really, though, Keys is not an app. It’s a WebKit-based browser game. That makes it a bit difficult to navigate at times, but all in all I found it to be a positive experience. I got my means of killing time, and I actually might learn something in the process. Sounds like a winner to me. Best of all, the basic app is free. You can get Keys right here. If you like that, the developer, TEARN media, has plenty of other versions. You can check them out here. They’re either free or come with a free trial, so have at it. Again, you’ll need OS 6 to run this.
Learn and have fun on your BlackBerry with Keys
