    I was thinking last night about developers, and something occurred to me that hadn't before, and maybe it's obvious to some people but maybe not everyone. Becoming an app developer for any platform is a big commitment. Not just the time and energy involved with the process, from coming up with an idea, learning the tools, development, testing, launching -- but also what follows. If you plan to have a successful app (which I think most developers strive for) the responsibility doesn't end when the app arrives in App World. After that you have bug reports and download issues and questions/complaints to deal with... likely for years to come if your app is popular. Considering all that goes into this process, I don't mind paying for apps to support the efforts you've put in to providing something to improve my device.

    I wanted to say thank you to all of you that have made that commitment, especially for the BlackBerry platform that is facing so many struggles and uncertainties right now. Without you and your passion for making our platform not only survive, but thrive, I don't know where we would be now or in the future.

    Keep doing what you're doing. Keep learning and bettering yourselves and your apps. There are so many of us who appreciate what you're doing for us that never speak up, or who are drowned out by those who instead complain about what we don't have, instead of appreciating what we do have, often given to us by a "small" developer instead of those big names we always hear about.

    Word up! Theme developing alone can be time consuming and at times when there's a bug, frustrating. I've been looking into taking the next step and doing something for the pb. Just looking up the research to start is work alone. Many thanks, downloads and dollars to those out there who crunch code to make our devices even better one app at a time!
