BlackBerry App World Now Home to 99,500 Applications

BlackBerry App World

During the BlackBerry 10 Jam keynote here at BlackBerry World 2012 in Orlando, RIM’s vice president of developer relations Alec Saunders discussed BlackBerry App World’s growth. Saunders confirmed that the application store is now home to more than 99,500 applications and 25% of them are compatible with RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. That’s a far ways off from the hundreds of thousands available for Android and iOS devices, but it still shows growth. Saunders also explained that, contrary to popular belief, RIM’s developers are not flocking to other platforms and that more have jumped on-board to create new applications for the company’s BlackBerry 10 platform, which is expected to launch later this year.
