    Hi there,
    Is it just me, or are some of the featured apps in the "great apps on Blackberry" kind of random? Does anyone know how these apps get chosen?

    not sure ... but you have to think that there aren't a lot of choices at the moment for "great apps". Don't get me wrong, there are some great apps out there, but they can't keep showing the same ones. So they have to mix it up, but I don't think we are having that many new and great apps coming out at the rate you would see for iOS and Android.

    I think maybe they choose them based on the icon. Sometimes the apps they choose haven't been updated since 2013 and the reviews state that they no longer work. So yeah, it does seem somewhat random.

    But in just happy that they actually still have people working on the BlackBerry World.

    And what do you classify as "great apps coming out for Android and iOS", given the fact that a gazillion apps are being released *every day* for those platforms?

    I totally agree - just glad there are people still working at BBW! And I'm sure they are doing their best too.

    Actually, I wouldn't know since I don't use them. However, if you look at the most popular ones that folks talk about (i.e. Netflix, Instagram, Facebook, etc), those could be some that are listed as "great apps" for iOS and Android. Those cannot be found natively on BlackBerry. Yes, "great" is subjective, but at least they have the plethora of apps that many users are looking for or request. I understand that are a plenty of apps that are being released and a majority of them are ones that may never get downloaded and some that no one wants. But there are options for them at least.

    Ah, I think that answers my query. Thanks!
    Kind of loose criteria, but I guess that would disqualify a lot of apps.
    It's still a random list of apps though, I must say.

    Maybe CB could help curate a list of "great apps" for Blackberry?

    I know I'm probably dreaming though.

    Oh yeah, you're right! I forgot about that! I guess there wasn't enough new apps coming online to justify it.
