• App World Hits Three Billion Downloads And Counting

    While Alec Saunders isn't making up parody songs for BlackBerry 10, he loves to do some myth busting on app development for BlackBerry. One of these myths is that there aren't hardly any apps for BlackBerry. This is just not true. Via the BlackBerryDev Blog, Victoria Berry shares with us a few major stats regarding apps, including a major 3 billions apps downloaded milestone!

    Three billion app downloads averages out to over 2.5 million downloads each day. What’s even more important – and impressive – is that the number of daily downloads continues to increase. It took 786 days to reach the one billion mark, 210 days to reach two billion, and only 176 days to reach the three billion number. I should also note that this number does not include apps downloaded from third party BlackBerry app stores, or those pushed internally at companies around the world, or those downloaded directly from the web.
    Special thanks is due to the over 28,000 BlackBerry App World vendors and the BlackBerry App World storefront team. BlackBerry App World has continued to grow steadily with more than 90,000 applications now up for sale (we know other platforms use other metrics like submitted, or approved, but we prefer the more tangible “up for sale”).
    Congrats to BlackBerry for this great milestone! Let us know what your favorite BlackBerry apps are in the comments.
