BlackBerry, formerly known as Research in Motion, today announced that its app catalog has grown by more than 30,000 apps for BlackBerry 10 in seven weeks, recently hitting a total of 100,000 applications.
This is up from 70,000 applications for BlackBerry 10 in January 2013.
In a blog post, BlackBerry notes:
Today, Amazon Kindle, OpenTable and The Wall Street Journal are available to BlackBerry 10 customers and in the coming weeks CNN, The Daily Show Headlines, eBay, eMusic, Maxim, MLB at Bat, MTV News, Pageonce, PGA, Rdio, Skype, Soundhound and Viber will be available for download or purchase.
Martyn Mallick, VP of Global Alliances at BlackBerry, said:
“The response to the BlackBerry 10 platform and applications has been outstanding. Customers are thrilled with the applications already available, and the catalog just keeps growing, now with more than 100,000 apps.
Top brands and application providers are joining us every day and are seeing the benefits of being early supporters of the new platform. We constantly hear from developers that the BlackBerry 10 tools are easy to build with and that we provide opportunities for app differentiation that they do not see on other platforms.”
