BlackBerry has had a good run this year and tasted some sweet success with unconventional smartphones like BlackBerry Passport. Since apps are what make or break a platform in this digital age, it’s always a good thing when smartphone manufacturers promote users to try out new and interesting apps.
Earlier this year, BlackBerry partnered with Amazon app store to bring over 2,40,000 Android apps to BlackBerry devices. BlackBerry has been trying to widen its app ecosystem as part of its revival strategy and has asked consumers to provide feedback about what apps they would like to see in their BlackBerry Devices.
This offer is valid only for BlackBerry Z10, Q10, Z3, Z30, Q5, Passport and Porsche Design 9982 9983 devices only. Offering useful and popular apps for free is a good move towards strengthening BlackBerry App ecosystem.
