BlackBerry App World

Starting today (it's 10/10!!) developers can now submit apps to BlackBerry App World for BlackBerry 10 devices. Apps that are submitted starting today will able be ready to roll in App World for the BlackBerry 10 launch. In the Vendor Portal you'll now have the option to choose the Dev Alpha (BB10 All Touch) for your applications.

We're excited to announce that BlackBerry App World is now accepting applications targeted for BlackBerry 10 devices. This means that apps submitted to the store starting today, October 10, are guaranteed to be reviewed, tested and ready for publishing when BlackBerry 10 launches in Q1 2013. This is a huge opportunity to be the first into the store and capitalize on app-hungry BlackBerry users. 

So if you've been holding onto some BB10 apps, now is the time to get them in the store. If you've yet to make any sweet BB10 apps ... what are you waiting for?!?

Developers: Here's how to submit your apps for BlackBerry 10 devices


720x720 is currently not supported by the SDKs. Rumor has it that there will be an update late 2012 that adds that resolution for dev's to test the QWERTY screen size. Rumor also has it that apps that are developed in Cascades will need no/minimal changes to look/feel proper between all resolutions.

for people getting into developing, what is the best starting point, without getting a "blackberry app development for dummies" book? But to relevantly post, I think it's wonderful that RIM has the foresightedness (is that a word) to start taking apps/games now so that everything runs smooth at launch. Also, I think RIM should make the release more magical or mythical by infusing a "parable" to why we are going from BB7 to, we had to use the time machine to get the software&hardware that the people wanted, but the place in time we took it from was 6 years from now, so we had to skip BB8&BB9, so we could bring you (drumroll) BB10!!!! IDK, but something has to give, just have a good comeback because you know droid and iOS are going to hate.......I love it. But I don't want my beloved BB getting cheap shots and not even able to fire a few shots in return. Oh yea, and as far as Windows phones....are we now in cahoots with each other? Or is it the "enemy of my enemy" effect?

For a person new to programming, the Native Dev Kit and C++ may be a little overwhelming. Start with a WebWorks app. If you already know some HTML and JavaScript, you're just about there. Add in some device specific API's and you're all set.

The fact they spent the time to write this post, and the need to do so, make me wonder if app devs have not been deving as much as Rim was hoping...
