It's once again time to take a peek at the world of mobile apps, with some great programs available.
This time, we have Amazing Alex, a word-translation tool and a few more neat applications!
The Hiive has become a popular online community for the latest social and club events in South Africa, so it stands to reason that a BlackBerry app was released.

The Hiive app is available free of charge for BlackBerry users, with an Android version on the way too.
One of the oldest and greatest cross-platform instant messenger clients, Nimbuzz built a big following thanks to its appearance on Symbian, Blackberry, Android and iOS and other platforms.
Now, it makes an appearance on Microsoft's Windows Phone 7, complete with support for Google Talk, Windows Live Messenger and a slew of other protocols.
An iOS exclusive for the longest time, this innovative translation app is well worth a download to your Android device.
The application uses your camera to quickly translate words, for instance, if you see a sign in a foreign language.
Word Lens is free to try out, with an in-app purchase required for additional functionality.
This application, still in alpha surprisingly enough, is a unique gesture-based method of task-management.
This Android app lets users use simple swipes to close, minimise and switch between applications, making for a refreshingly different experience.
Arguably the foremost solution for media streaming, XBMC has become the service of choice for many video junkies.

The latest game from Angry Birds developer Rovio Mobile, Amazing Alex is another off-the-wall physics puzzler.
