After the less than successful stint at launching an Android phone, the fallen giant Blackberry is trying to garner users by bringing its Blackberry Hub+ Services app to Android. The app which used to be the sole reason why some folks purchased Blackberry devices back in the day brings a catalogue of all the apps by the company currently available on the Play Store. The Hub then acts as a launcher for said apps and users can control their Blackberry services from one place.

Linia is a trippy puzzler which involves creating colour sequences by tracing a line connecting coloured shapes. What’s the catch you ask? Well, the colours move randomly and will change shapes in order to avoid getting caught by your line. The game features over 80 different levels with more to be added in the subsequent updates. If you have some cash to spend and some time to kill, give Linia a shot.
