Kijiji app for BlackBerry 10
Not sure how many of your are interested but wanted to post some new info I just received about BlackBerry getting an app for Kijiji
For those of you who aren't aware of kijiji it is an online classified site very similar to Craigslist.
I use this site a lot for buying and selling items and it always irritated me that they did not have an app for BlackBerry but did for Apple and Android phones. Especially since they are a Canadian company.
So I sent then a letter asking why they don't have the app and if they plan on making one. Or if not a native app maybe port over the Android version.
The following is what their reply was.
"In truth, Craig, Kijiji has been receiving numerous requests for the creation of an official mobile application for BlackBerry devices. Our technical teams are currently reviewing all activities for pre-Alpha and Alpha testing stages. These activities include requirements analysis, software design, software development, and unit testing.
Although I cannot guarantee a precise release date for an official mobile application for BlackBerry, such an application is intended to be made available before the end of 2013."
So if you were curious there you have it.
Looks like it is coming but we have a bit of a wait ahead of us.
Hope some of you find this info useful.

Good stuff. We always like to hear that companies are developing for BB10.
In the mean time their site m.kijiji.ca works sweet on the Z10 browser. The side loaded app is pretty good too.

Kijiji would be awesome.! Use it aLL the time and find using a std version is a major PITA..!! being on a mac...not sure if I can sideload an android version or not.?
If anyone has connections at TD Trust and PC Financial...apps for those two puppys would be outstanding.!!

Interesting, this is the reply I got from Kijiji on June 5. I find it strange when companies are giving different people different information. It indicates a lack of proper information dissemination to customer service reps.
"At this time we are focusing on our iOS and Android apps, but we would consider developing a Blackberry app if there was enough demand.
Thanks, Kijiji Community Support"
I suggest everyone please email them at <email@example.com> and keep on them. The mobile site is ok, but you can't post ads from it, and the Android side-load does do the job, but its clear when you use it that app is not meant for this device.
Really hoping the information the OP got was accurate, a native Kijiji app can't come soon enough!Apps you want on BB10? Check the contact info below and let them know there is demand!

Latest from Kijiji <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
"Hi thank you for the response on the Kijiji app for Blackberry 10.
Just to let you know, I have tried side-loading the Android app for Kijiji onto my Z10 and it does indeed work perfect. The only problem I have found is that it does not remember my sign-in and I have to re-enter my username and password each time I use the app.
I know there are alot of other BB10 users that are patiently waiting for a mobile app for Kijiji, since the mobile website does not allow you to post ads. I hope that it will be possible for your development team to submit the Android port to Blackberry World in the meantime while a native app is being developed.
Ok thanks so much for your feedback. Interesting that you can side-load the Android app onto the Z10. Have a great day!Apps you want on BB10? Check the contact info below and let them know there is demand!
