    When you are out and about it isn't always easy or advisable to view your display and read a book. I subscribed to Audible about six months ago and am now hooked on audio books.

    The application works well on my iPhone and even supports the new Whispersync technology that syncs written and audio books through the Kindle service.

    You can choose which books in your library to download on your iPhone. You can also control your experience with different taps and swipes on the display.

    Golf is a popular summer sport and while I am not personally a very active golfer, I do enjoy sports. The PGA Tour app gives you the latest and greatest news and tourney status on your BB10 device.

    You can view the leader board, check out details of the course, view stats on players, and even view Twitter feeds from staff and players.
