BlackBerry World now holds more than 100,000 mobile applications

BlackBerry says more than 30,000 new applications for the BlackBerry 10 platform have been added to its BlackBerry World app store in the past seven weeks, which means there are now more than 100,000 apps available.

The BlackBerry 10 platform was announced on 30th January, along with the Z10 and Q10 smartphones. UK sales of the Z10 started on 31st January, although the device isn’t officially released in the USA until tomorrow.

Martyn Mallick, Vice President of Global Alliances at BlackBerry, said “The response to the BlackBerry 10 platform and applications has been outstanding. Customers are thrilled with the applications already available, and the catalog just keeps growing, now with more than 100,000 apps. Top brands and application providers are joining us every day and are seeing the benefits of being early supporters of the new platform. We constantly hear from developers that the BlackBerry 10 tools are easy to build with and that we provide opportunities for app differentiation that they do not see on other platforms.”

Apple’s App Store and the Google Play store currently offer more than 800,000 apps each, according to recent reports.
