What killed BlackBerry: Terrible apps

What killed BlackBerry: Terrible apps – Sep. 25, 2013.


Blackberry brags that there over 120,000 apps available for its users to download. However, almost all of these apps including the popular ones are said to be terrible. Most of the popular apps on the Android and iPhone, such as Instagram, Candy Crush, are nowhere to be found. On the other hand, Blackberry does have other major social media apps available for download (Facebook and Twitter), but still these apps are infrequently updated. Unlike iPhone and Android, Blackberry has no control over its own app store as the other companies have iTunes and Google Play. It seems to be getting harder and harder for Blackberry to market their products and apps available for download.
