    I got a more "knowledgeable" response. . .
    We do plan to continue adding more platforms like Blackberry 10 over time. Stay tuned for future announcements.

    Thank you,

    I guess you got the new guy? LOL

    Just an update. . .I've managed to send some sort or message to about 90% of the contacts (some of them require you to be a registered user of the app with is kind of messed up but whatever) and about half have gotten back to me with the generic "currently not working on an app but please stay tuned." script. . .So my question to you guys is . . .If you wanted to start a change.org petition for 5 of the apps listed which 5 should it be? (Think about the popularity or the app as well as the usefulness . . .sorry but I'm not gonna make a petition for game apps . . .lol) Personally, I'd want. . .
    • Instapaper
    • Kindle
    • Pocket
    • Google+
    • Flipboard

    But what do you guys think?

    Millions of people worldwide work shift work. The guys I work who don't have a bb have polished user friendly shift work apps that allows them to see what they are working months in advance. Working days, afternoons and nights can be very confusing especially for loved ones trying to organize get togethers etc.

    I have a bb and the only shift work app is clumsy and cumbersome.

    Please, someone who develops apps make a quality shift work app. If you are unsure what it looks like to to app store ans search shift work. Do the same at blackberry world and you'll see what I mean.

    Looks like MyFitnessPal isn't making an app for BlackBerry 10. They do indeed support BlackBerry 7 though! :-|
    Here is what I got from them (support@myfitnesspal.com):

    Dear RIM Developer Relations,
    Please add MyFitnessPal to your list of development-teams that need to be schooled by you in the art of porting apps from Android to BB 10.
    Thanks,

    Just sent a note to RBC (Royal Bank of Canada) on their website asking if they are planning to have an app on BB10

    I do most of my banking using their app for OS7 and this would be a must for me. Let's see what they say...

    So I received a sort of canned response from RBC saying the app would work with any BB device with OS4.6 or higher (I don't think she knew what BB10 is!), but with an interesting note at the end of the message:

    "We're committed to delivering mobile services that meet the needs of our clients, and well continue to enhance our mobile offering over time. Stay up to date by visiting:

    www.rbcroyalbank.com/mobile"

    I guess I will have to take it for what it says and hope they will develop an app for BB10, specially when they are one of the largest Canadian Banks...

    I think RIM Developer Relation must already have spoken to all banks that matter in the countries they are launching. RBC being one of them. I am sure RIM is already going after big companies/big app makers.

    We should, perhaps, go after (in order of priority):
    1) fav apps from smaller app makers. An app that you like on other platform but it's perhaps not a top rated app. RIM is unlikely to convince ALL small app makers. So, we should contact those app makers and let them know we want their app.
    2) app makers that have been somewhat hostlie to RIM/BlackBerry (using the word 'hostile' loosely, so don't flame me for it) like NetFlix, Skype (agreed, they are not make or break apps, but it's better to have them than not)
    3) and if we have the time to do so, all remaining app makers (big or small) for additional pressure.

    At this point I just going for the mad rush. . .it's a numbers game. . .I figure if I reach out to 1000 devs and only 10% say they are willing to go for it that's 100 apps. . .I did my part and I'm happy. . .

    Makes sense. And I applaud you for your efforts. I have only contacted 3 app makers so far (quite a bit behind you, but better than nothing). That said, I think we should give priority to smaller app-makers that may not get convinced by RIM Dev Relations team. If we (app-customers) contact them directly, it's an incentive for them. Big app-makers will surely be contacted and pursued by RIM Dev Relations.

    I'm joining the conversation, I have reach out to a few developer for the apps I use everyday on my iPhone. I think this is a little bit premature(since we don't know what is going to be available at launch), lets make sure we keep this conversation alive after launch and we see what is available on the store.

    evernote is already integrated at blackberry 10. you can find your evernote notes at app called "REMEMBER". There you can combine your offline and online notes. When you open them, your evernote notes at the right side, and your offline notes at the left side (2 icons actually). all you have to do is sign in to your evernote account at "Account" in Blackberry 10 Setting . Dropbox and Box are already integrated too. All you have to do is just sign in to your accounts from each apps and you can see your files from dropbox and box from 'File Manager". At File manager, you can browse files that put inside the handset, your dropbox account, and box account.
    Just saw an evaluation unit our IT group had - can definitely confirm this.
