    Marmalade enjoys surge in BlackBerry 10 developers
    Marmalade has reported a surge in users of its mobile SDK on the newly launched BlackBerry 10 platform.

    The middleware maker has seen an increase in developers choosing to use its SDK on BlackBerry 10 from under three per cent in August 2012 to 24 per cent in January 2013 – that’s second only to iOS and ahead of Android. Not all of those developments are necessarily submitted to the BlackBerry app store, but it is an indicator of the support developers are showing the platform.

    Marmalade COO Harvey Elliot told Develop he believed a rise in Blackberry support was down to the company’s efforts in encouraging developers to port existing mobile titles to the Blackberry 10 through port-a-thon events, webinars and developer road shows.

    “We have issued thousands of Marmalade licences into the BlackBerry community along with target devices, to help bring content to this new market. Their technology teams have been open and approachable, and keen to help solve the issues developers may find when tackling a new platform,” said Elliot.

    “They clearly care about enabling the development community to get to grips with their device and have tried to make it as easy as possible to bring games and apps from other platforms into the BlackBerry ecosystem.”
