Hi folks! The wait is finally over! BlackBerry App World is here! It launched today!
What’s that you might ask? It’s RIM’s answer to the ITunes app store! RIM realized that what they were lacking with the BlackBerry devices was a single portal where users could go to get all their apps. They were also lacking a ton of apps too!
So RIM started the App Store initative and opened it up and sent a call out to developers everywhere to start developing applications for the BlackBerry in anticipation of the launch of the BlackBerry App World site. Now that it is launched, I can tell you I love it!
I’ve already downloaded quite a few free apps, and if you want to download pay-for apps you can do that via paypal and it’s all integrated quite nicely! If you haven’t checked it out yet, what are you waiting for!?!?!
