Built for Business - Learn more about BlackBerry KEY2
  1. Nikidroid's Avatar
    I am using Z10, I saw no Line built in BlackBerry in BlackBerry World, WeChat isn't update, no stickers, no Dungeon Hunter 5 built-in BlackBerry (Dungeon Hunter 4 itself had a bug, not updated again, no Kritika built-in BlackBerry, and many less apps. I become think and think and think, why don't you create apps and increase apps in BlackBerry World, as good as iOS or Play Store? Does it:
    1. because no one would buy the your apps?
    2. because a few users only who buy the apps?
    3. because tired hoping BlackBerry, then look at iOS and Android?
    4. because it is dififcult than Android or iOS?
    5. because BlackBerry almost shutdown, so create apps will be useless?
    6. because frustating BlackBerry keeps down in sales, one or two countries had forgotten BlackBerry?

    Just curious.

    It's 2015 now, not 2005.
    1. BlackBerry's market share has dropped to less than 1%.
    2. BlackBerry is discouraging native app development in favor of Android apps.
    3. It is no longer worth the effort for developers to create or maintain native BB apps.

    This is like asking a musician or comedian why they like selling out a big stadium vs a small club. You do the same amount of work and get 50X the response with the bigger venue.

    4. If you're saying it's harder to develop for BB10 than IOS or Android, I disagree

    I'd like to add that your asking a BlackBerry development forum why they prefer building for Android. I'd bet most people frequenting this particular thread actually build for bbry

    Why? Because BlackBerry 10 is dead. That's why. Can't develop for a dead platform.

    That's a licencing issue. They're not going to pay for that now if they didn't before.

    I earn money on developing android apps. A lot of. But, I hate Android. I hate Java and all that stuff around. I hope a global catastrophe will blow it away someday. I tried making native BB10 apps not so long ago just for fun, and I liked it very much! I adore C++. And even QML is sort of attractive.

    Not at all. But I would be happy if someday I could stop earning money on developing apps for the OS I myself literally hate. You certainly understand I do that only because it is so popular. But... as we know, even dinosaurs die time to time. BlackBerry, Nokia... Nothing lasts forever... Have a good day.

    Java is such a heinous language. I agree the world will be better off when it dies.

    Cross your fingers that Kotlin gets places?

    As I've said above, I hate Java and __all that stuff around__. Kotlin = JVM. No, thanks. Trade bad for worse.

    C/C++, ECMAScript, Swift, Go...
