    Good question. I remember hearing about that but not sure how true that was.

    How would some third party port some other company's app? It's not like anyone can randomly call up a tech company and say "hey, I want to port your app to another smartphone platform. Would you mind emailing us your source code?"

    The only people who can port an app are the companies that make the apps. Sure, they could request assistance from BB, but it's not like BB or anyone else has access to their source code, or the rights to it.

    Yes, there are exceptions, meaning apps that have public APIs, where anyone can write an app, but such situations are very much the exception, not the rule.

    Ummm, WE, the users, are the "company" that ports their apps. Blackberry should support a group to do this since these developers don't want to do it. It's really no skin off their teeth in the long run, unless it's a paid app.

    It's easier said than done. For many apps, the third party developer would require permission from the owner of the app and access to its api's.

    For many of the big-named apps and more popular apps on ios and Android , the developers are very hesitant to release that information.
