BlackBerry announced yesterday that developers are now able to beta test their BlackBerry 10 applications through the Beta Zone. We’ve know that, up until now, only BlackBerry’s app we’re being tested, but soon we’ll start seeing third party apps as well.

You’ll be able to easily distinguish between a Third Party and a BlackBerry beta application by taking a look at the ‘Author’ of the download in the Beta Zone app. After joining a Third Party beta program, you can contact the developer directly by using the ‘Submit Feedback’ form in the Beta Zone app.

If there’s one thing BlackBerry has always done right is their support to the developers, and this is just one more way to help bring great apps to the BB10 platform. Stay tuned to N4BB and we’ll let you know when cool apps show up on the Beta Zone.
