At BlackBerry Live 2013, the Mippin guys were talking up a potential enterprise application generator to follow up on their media-centered product that has already brought some 20,000 apps to BlackBerry World. They're still in talks with BlackBerry about getting this project going, but it would be built on top of BES, so employees could access corporate information that's behind the firewall through an application front-end. This kind of solution would be perfect for companies with plenty of remote workers and heavily-used shared databases, but shy on mobile developers able to create a custom app that handles it all. The BES component would be able to handle deployment of created apps as well, so new updates could be rolled out as needed, or the app could be remotely nuked if the device was lost. 

In any case, the BlackBerry App Generator has done a lot so far for more consumer-facing brands - here's hoping the same tech can be used to enable higher mobility in enterprise as well. Be sure to check out our demo of the BlackBerry App Generator from Jam Asia to see what it's all about, or head on over to BlackBerryAppGenerator.com to start cooking up your own.

PRIMO !!I I was talking to someone about an app that he should consider ,does this mean we can do it ourselves?

This sounds great. As they stated, many if not most business websites aren't built like blogs and aren't RSS friendly. Having an app generator where you can plug in any content you like would be awesome and far more useful than the current app generator.

I don't care what new app or game blackberry introduce to their customers, if they don't fix the little problems, the complaints will slow the growth. Don't they understand that negative comments spreads faster than positive comments. I want the latest and greatest too but, I want the alert notification to work first. It doesn't work on the Z10, (US version). Im talking about the alert notification you are supposed to get while you are on a call and an email or text is coming in. If I'm on a call and my child text me I won't get the text until I get off the call or look down at the blinking LED. A parent should never have to worry about losing contact from their child. We worry about other things. Fix this problem blackberry. I'm not the only person that is experiencing this issue

Alert sounds cannot happen during a call. Same on blackberry 5/6/7. Might actually be a limitation since the phone component is very dominant during calls. Blackberry isn't at fault here and it's the same on other platforms.
