- All BlackBerry Z10 Apps Will Work With The New Z30
  • 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.

    For the detailed listing of differences between the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Z30 and BlackBerry Q10 smartphones that will help you port your app to the BlackBerry Z30, please read the information found in this blog article: Everything You Need to Know About the BlackBerry Z30.

    For your added convenience, we have automatically expanded your device support to include the new smartphone. You may want to do some additional development and testing to ensure that the UI is optimized for the new screen size and resolution.

    In the unlikely event that you do not want BlackBerry Z30 support for your app(s), you can remove it by following these instructions.
    Sign in to the BlackBerry World Vendor Portal
    Select Manage Products
    Under the Releases column, select the magnifying glass icon to view your release(s)
    Select the pencil icon to edit the desired release
    On the Add Release Version tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and select the pencil icon under Device Support
    Update your device selection and click Ok
    Click Save


    You can opt-out of this offer by clicking the link below and following the onscreen instructions.

    Note that the deadline for opting out is Sunday, September 22, 12:00 PM Eastern.

    Happy Development,
    BlackBerry World Team
