23 Aug

2011-10-10-bbstormkeypadhorizontal2-copy-1318424615In the run up to the launch of Blackberry 10, we were awed by the way Blackberry was boosting developers to generate applications for the platform. Offering money rewards and giving devices to make porting existing applications from different platforms seemed to have been auspicious given that Blackberry World now claims to offer more than 120,000 applications. Anyway has it been so eager it would be accept submissions and yielded quality for amount?

The different was the simplicity of porting existing applications with a few developers asserting to have ported applications in under a moment.

Obviously, you just acquire these prizes provided that you application traverses the choice handle for the Blackberry World store. Anyhow given that RIM is planning to have no less than 70,000 apps approachable by the launch of Blackberry 10 on January 30 this is its final enormous any desire for making its target.
