Official Statement Regarding Developers with Excessive BlackBerry 10 Apps
Earlier today it was revealed that two developers accounted for over 50% of BlackBerry 10 apps. The two developers being S4BB and Mippin. In regards to the news, BlackBerry has issued to us the following official statement:
“Developers in all app stores employ a number of different monetization tactics. BlackBerry World is an open market for developers and we let market forces dictate the success or failure of these tactics. Discoverability in overcrowded stores continues to be an issue affecting all developers. This is why we have worked hand in hand with developers on the Built for BlackBerry program to help showcase apps and games that exemplify the power of BlackBerry 10.”
Some of the developer’s apps are quite nice. While others are very, very simple applications. Do you believe this helps or hurts the BlackBerry World app ecosystem?
