CBC News app gets Built for BlackBerry approved

We don't normally cover apps just for hitting Built for BlackBerry status, but seeing the CBC app achieve that goal today is a good reminder that it's definitely something for developers to shoot for.

Since the launch of BlackBerry 10 we've seen more and more apps hit the Built for BlackBerry mark including our very own CB10 app. The program not only offers great incentives for developers but also provides some awesome apps for consumers. Knowing that an app is Built for BlackBerry means it's a quality title (be it app or game) that was made just for BlackBerry and follows strict guidelines to ensure a great experience for end users. 

As is the case with the CBC app, not all Built for BlackBerry titles come from single developers either. If you're a larger company looking to get an app out, a company like Soluteo can certainly help in that process.

It's actually a great app. I use it several times a day so I definitely recommend at least checking it out and getting them the downloads.

hbelkin

Is it perhaps only available in Canada? I've tried several times but always fails to install.

One of the best apps on mobile. The only strike against it is it only displays extremely low quality video (240p). Wish there was a way to change that.

It's a very good news app. That and USA Today are my favorites.

I am glad it's not another port; great news.

It won't install for me either.................here in the US of A.

great to see CBC get their app in! Also, it's good to hear "and BlackBerry" in their little radio commercials.

birdman_38

Agreed. They also have a TV promo that specifically points to their current BlackBerry 10 lineup.

Not a fan of the communist broadcast company but it is a very app

The more companies build apps like this, the less we will hear or see ads that push only Apple and Android app stores. CBC now says it has apps for "mobile" devices not just iPhone or Android. That is what BlackBerry needs.

Their commercial even demos thes bb10 version

I've been using this app for a long time now, it's really pretty damn good. Not perfect (neither is CB10 :) ), but it's definitely one of the best along with CB10 and Blaq.

Pete The Penguin

I'm not Canadian but I downloaded CBC as it showcases BB10 - it's a fantastic app on par with CB10.

Where's the little black BB logo on the bottom right corner of the avartar,which signifies that it is built for BB approved?they should be consistent with that classification!!

MasterOfBinary

It's up to the developer to update the app with the logo, apparently they haven't yet.

Great to know BB10 platform getting more support.
