New WhatsApp Version Hits BlackBerry World

WhatsApp is an extremely popular instant messaging app that has millions of users all around the world.

Facebook Beta Arrives On BlackBerry World

It must be noted that the Beta version of Facebook remained in the BlackBerry Beta Zone ever since the middle of December last year, and after a fair bit of waiting, it looks as though it has made its way over to BlackBerry World.

BlackBerry World Promotes BlackBerry Classic

BlackBerry World happens to be a place where many BlackBerry users happen to check out – some on a more religious basis than the rest, frequently, hence it is not surprising at all to hear that the company would decide to use BlackBerry World as a platform to put up information concerning the new BlackBerry Classic that is about to be released in due time.

BlackBerry World Will Reportedly Start Accepting Android Apps Soon

One of the reasons why BlackBerry’s handsets have been struggling in the market is because there’s a significant “app gap.” Consumers have come to expect unimaginable numbers of apps at their fingertips, which can easily be found on iOS and Android. Other platforms like BlackBerry and even Windows Phone are trying hard to catch up, but there’s still a significant gap to be covered. It seems that BlackBerry might be […]


20% Of Blackberry World’s Purchases Are Music Related

There are plenty of places where one is able to purchase digital music, although for the most part, many people equate digital music purchases to iTunes, and rightfully so considering that many artists and groups make their songs available on Apple’s digital music platform alongside physical copies as well. However it looks like Blackberry World could catchup to iTunes in terms of digital music purchases, at least that’s what’s being […]


40% Of BlackBerry 10 Apps Are Android Ports

BlackBerry had quite the day yesterday as it finally unveiled BlackBerry 10, the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10. During their media event, they mentioned their BlackBerry World would be filled with 70,000 applications, but it seems a good amount of the applications that are available aren’t optimized for BlackBerry 10. In fact, it turns out they’re “wrapped Android applications.” VP of global alliances and business development Martyn Mallick spoke with reporters […]

BlackBerry World Is New BlackBerry App World

What’s in a name? After all, doesn’t a rose smell just as sweet were it to be called by any other name? Well, Research In Motion (RIM) must know something that we don’t, having changed the name of its app store from BlackBerry App World to BlackBerry World. Hmmm, I do wonder whether there are any kind of unknown legal wranglings for RIM to drop the word “App” from the […]


RIM to rebrand “Blackberry App World” to just “Blackberry World”

The name “Blackberry App World” does not really have a ring to it and personally I thought it could have been named better. It looks like the folks at RIM have thought the same as well and in a tweet by the Canadian company, they have announced that the Blackberry App World will be no more – instead they are renaming it to Blackberry World, which in all honesty has […]
