RIM has just updated the BlackBerry Payment Service SDK to version 1.5, which lets developers offer subscription based services to their apps. The new SDK 1.5 includes new features such as allowing apps to check for a subscription’s status and canceling a subscription, offer premium content, access to a cloud-based service and more. It also manages the subscription renewals and sends out renewal reminders and receipts to users.

All developers using the older version can now update to this newer release, and those who are interested in trying it out can also download it here.
