We've heard plenty of talk about the Built for BlackBerry developer program before BlackBerry 10 was fully announced and now that the BlackBerry Z10 is in the hands of many, we're getting a look at some of the apps developers have built for the program and that BlackBerry has tested for quality and performance.

Right now, if you load up BlackBerry World on your BlackBerry 10 device there is a new section at the top simply called Built For BlackBerry. In there, you'll find all the currently approved apps and games listed and ready for download in varying price ranges.

Needless to say, there is a lot of great stuff listed there and we'll be taking a further look at them all over time but for now let us know in the comments if you've tried any of them out. If so, what are your favorites? Hopefully the BlackBerry World web storefront will be updated shortly as well so a device is not needed to see the full list.

Good this is great! plenty of people have been wanting this to see the native built apps! good stuff

I hope there is more coming because there are only about 25 apps there now and a few of them are already on PlayBook.

Must say... I'm impressed at the quality of the apps on the z10. Now we just need the already confirmed as coming apps to get here already... not having whatsapp, Skype, etc is no good.

Downloaded Nobex which is great for listening to radio stations and getting podcasts. It's free, but if you want to listen to stations outside your country then you have to get the max version which let's you listen worldwide. Great app.

While I guess at the end of the day if an app works, it shouldn't matter if it is an Android port or built specifically for BB10, I still like the idea of being able to find and support those apps build specifically for BB10. If those apps get better sales, then it will help justify the extra effort to build true BB10 apps which take full advantage of the hardware/OS.

Good idea.

Hope this helps increase downloads :)... I am the developer of The Dive Plan (which has Built for BlackBerry cert). Glad to see the wide range of apps/games from mass appeal apps to niche stuff like mine.

Would it be too much trouble to list the apps in the made for blackberry section? THAT'S what I want to know about. The fact that the section is there isn't that newsworthy. WHAT'S AVAILABLE THERE is the news.

People like me who don't have the phone yet would like to know what apps are there.

I agree. Funny, they alude to the fact that you can't see them on the internet, but they don't go through the "trouble" of listing them.

Pretty weak.
