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.
