BlackBerry JamHack

Social footy app Soccer Ticker headed to BlackBerry 10


The winner of the JamHack 2012 competition was Soccer Ticker. It's a social football-watching app for BlackBerry 10, complete with hand-curated live score updates, chat rooms for mid-game banter, team stats, voting on outcomes, betting odds, match schedules, and lots more. Each event in a match has its own entry which can be liked, disliked, commented on or shared out to BBM. The user interface in Soccer Ticker was particularly well-done, and surprisingly simple provided the breadth of functionality.

What happened at the BlackBerry JamHack in Vietnam? Good stuff - that's what!


We posted just last week the video highlights from the BlackBerry JamHack Asia 2012 but more recently RIM has released a video from the JamHack that took place in Vietnam and as you will see the event was BUZZING.

Vietnamese BlackBerry developers were put through a seamless 40-hour challenge where they explore & experience the upcoming BlackBerry 10 and compete with each other to build apps for the new BlackBerry platform. The contest kicked off on October 19 attracting 23 teams comprising of over 130 professional developers, students and BlackBerry enthusiasts who struggle to give their best in 40 hours to conceptualize and build an application for the BlackBerry 10 platform using frameworks such as the BlackBerry 10 Adobe AIR SDK, BlackBerry 10 Native SDK or BlackBerry 10 WebWorks SDK.
