BlackBerry Apps Take over the World

BlackBerry has announced their App World is to be launched in 27 additional markets worldwide.

Whether BlackBerry users enjoy apps for playing games in their spare time, to give them directions while on the go, or to provide fun and wacky solutions to everyday problems, 101 markets can now enjoy a wide range of applications for BlackBerry smartphone users.

Latest figures show BlackBerry tech fans are downloading more than 2 million apps a day from the App World, with an average of 20,000 apps available to purchase and download.

“There is high demand for BlackBerry apps and we’re delighted to be opening up the BlackBerry App World online store to customers in an additional 27 markets today,” said Alan Brenner, Research In Motion senior vice president.

“We look forward to seeing the rich catalogue of personal and business oriented apps continue to grow.

Trackball, trackpad, or touch screen running BlackBerry OS 4.5 or higher devices can access App World directly through the smartphone, or users can search online via their computer and transfer them over.

BlackBerry App World Features

Payment methods include PayPal with major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and Amex, while the BlackBerry ID offers a new payment.

This also allows customers to conveniently transfer their personal library of apps when they switch to a new BlackBerry smartphone.

The App World has a selection of featured apps on its front page for inspiration and a top 25 list of popular apps other BlackBerry users download. You can search for these either by theme, including the newest apps on the market, as well as ones which have been recently updated.

If you are unsure about an app, you can read a review to help you make your decision with the star ratings, and if you like it after you have purchased it, you can recommend it to friends and family through email, PIN, SMS, BBM and social networks too.
