The BlackBerry® App World™ storefront turned three years old this week. It’s generated more than 2 billion downloads since launch and now has over 70,000 apps in the catalog. And while we’re very proud of the work that has gone into BlackBerry App World, we’re especially appreciative of the tens of thousands of developers that have and continue to create apps for the BlackBerry platform. To celebrate the milestone, we wanted to share with you the list for the most popular paid apps since Blackberry App World debuted back in 2009. Whatever you have been doing with your BlackBerry® smartphone, these apps have been there to give you a personal touch, provide some fun, and of course, keep you connected.
Here are some of the top apps purchased on BlackBerry App World over the last three years:
BeBuzz – LED Lights And More: Bellshare GmbH
Ever wanted to know exactly who’s calling – just by looking at that little flashing LED on your BlackBerry® smartphone? BeBuzz is designed to let you customize contact profiles so that you can easily see and hear exactly who’s trying to reach you.
Shazam Encore: Shazam Entertainment Limited
Looking for a musical adventure? Shazam will take you there. Ah, the magic of holding your BlackBerry smartphone up in the air and finding out who sings that tune…music aficionados, meet your perfect match.
Color ID™: Motek Americas Inc.
Color ID is designed to let you assign custom LED color combinations by contact when you receive a BBM™, text, email or call. With over 100 possible color combinations including “Disco” and “Double Rainbow” and unlimited custom contacts, seeing who’s contacting you has never been more awesome.
BeWeather: Bellshare GmbH
The BeWeather app is designed to keep you on top of whatever Mother Nature throws your way. Road warriors can set up multiple cities for those days when your carry-on luggage has to accommodate everything from short sleeves to parkas.
What’s that, you say? You want more? We know that the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet hasn’t been around quite as long as BlackBerry App World itself, but we thought you’d like to know the #1 paid app for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet so far. Any guesses?
Angry Birds: Rovio Entertainment Ltd.
Yes, BlackBerry PlayBook tablet fans have taken kindly to those adorable little birds. #TeamBlackBerry’s been defeating those sneaky egg-stealing villains one sling at a time.
