Super apps. We hear the term being used more and more these days when describing BlackBerry applications and while many out there have made up their own definition of what one may be, Research In Motion are the people to explain it best. As seen in the above video from WES 2010, super apps can be defined as applications which make use of all the BlackBerry resources available. From usage of notification pop ups, context menu integration right down to being able to access any application from within anywhere on the device. Deep integration across the whole device.
