  • All BlackBerry Z10 Apps Will Work With The New Z30



    On the announcement today of the new BlackBerry Z30 smartphone, the question that may be hitting the heads of users and devs about app compatibility, is will existing BlackBerry 10 apps work with the new device? The short answer is, YES! BlackBerry dev support has sent out an email (see below) that notifies devs that their BlackBerry 10 apps will automatically be added via the vendor portal to support the Z30 device. Of course that doesn't mean that you won't need to do any UI tweaks for difference in resolution, ect.

    If you are a dev, get crackin' on those optimized Z30 apps!

    Today we announced our newest BlackBerry smartphone - the BlackBerry Z30! Loaded with improved features and boasting OS version 10.2, the BlackBerry Z30 gives users the best BlackBerry 10 experience yet.

    We have great news for developers too! Firstly, the BlackBerry Z30 is now available in the BlackBerry World Vendor Portal for selection as a supported device. Secondly, apps that currently support the BlackBerry Z10 will also function on the BlackBerry Z30.
