The CrackBerry team was super excited to have our very own CB10 app win Best Built for BlackBerry App in the BlackBerry Developer Community awards this week at BlackBerry Live.

Following up on our sweet, sweet victory, we got Marcus Adolfsson up on the CrackBerry Live stage the next day to talk about the coding the award-winning CB10 app and where it's going from here.

For those who don't know Marcus yet, he's not just the developer behind CB10. He's also the CEO of Mobile Nations. A weekend warrior coder and all around smart guy, CB10 was Marcus' first BlackBerry app. Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into some of the magic behind CB10. You'll want to watch right to the end for what is easily the most epic ending to a CrackBerry video... EVER.

Before I got my Z10 this week, I wondered what all the hoopla was... it's just a website app. CB10 was the first thing I downloaded and I immediately understood all the excitement about it. It is the BEST mobile website experience and so closely mimics being on my desktop... and at times even better! Well done and well deserved, Marcus! And, thanks CB Live Team! I watched all your BB Live coverage. What a blast everyone obviously had doing that!

Wow. Just re-watched the video (posted it today while flying on a plane without watching it)... I totally forgot about the killer ending to the video. Hilarious. Think this may just be one of my all time favorite CB vids!

Looks like we messed up your twitter handle on the lower third though. Anybody who wants to follow Marcus on twitter needs to hit up @madolfsson.

Kevin out!

I wish he actually did go into the details of how he got the image performance so smooth. Those are the interesting bits of this post.

Every BlackBerry that I've had the first app that I install is Crackberry cos it's the most awesomest app in BlackBerry World, so Yeh the win is well deserved and couldn't of gone to a better group of people, (well done lads &ladies), if there is an body out there with a BlackBerry and doesn't have Crackberry all I have to say is "what are you doing, get it downloaded now)! I love this app and I love all of the team for bringing it to us, thank you.

You'd be better off asking what he doesn't do.. the list would be shorter.

Congrats on being recognized as the best BlackBerry App in the world! I use it myself every day and I can say it runs smooth. One feature i would like to see added would be a search function.

Any chance Marcus/CB dev team could open source some code examples to spread the performance love?
