Top 55 BlackBerry 10 Apps

For a mobile platform to thrive, a rich and compelling app library is a must. To help ensure its new BlackBerry 10 OS has a fighting chance in a fierce smartphone market, BlackBerry promises more than 70,000 apps at launch. BlackBerry definitely has social media covered, with Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Foursqurare all on board. You’ll also find plenty of sports (ESPN, MLB at Bat) and news (USA Today, New York Times,) apps. 

On the business front–BlackBerry’s bread and butter–BlackBerry World will offer everything from Dropbox to Evernote and Citrix. And when work is done, gamers will love that EA and Gameloft are bringing lots of their titles to BlackBerry 10. And, yes, you’ll be able to play Angry Birds Star Wars and Fruit Ninja, too. While BlackBerry World’s catalogue has plenty of holes at this stage, it’s certainly off to a pretty good start. Here are the top 55 apps that will be available at launch or shortly thereafter, broken down by category.

    BlackBerry does have Skype ;)

  3. Ron Says:

    When trying to install Evernote on my Z10, I get a “Unavailable for this device” message. How did you get it loaded?

  4. jane doe Says:

    His last must include side loads because there is no evernote, cut the rope, fruit ninja, plants vs zombies, rdio. To name a few. This article is misleading.

  5. jane doe Says:

    In AW*

  6. drewread Says:

    Skype is in beta (not public beta yet), so it should be here soon.

    Evernote is integrated right into the device and does not need to be downloaded, just setup an Evernote account and it syncs with the Remember App…

    How to change my what’s app profile picture on my Z10?

  8. elite1 Says:

    This article was published Jan 30th and is based on the BB10 launch event that day.
    Some of the apps & games listed have yet to be released.

    Evernote does NOT have a standalone app; Evernote is baked into the BB10 OS on the Hub and Remember.
    In Hub settings, tap Add Account at the bottom and you’ll see Evernote as an option.

  9. Yandar Says:

    Regarding Evernote. With BB10, Evernote is built into the OS already, Go to the hub and add your account and you are done.

  10. @BBMarnel Says:

    Ron, it may be because you’re running an early os. Check if your software is up to date

  11. james calvert Says:

    Surely Beach Buggy Blitz should be included, great game :)

  12. Nani Says:

  14. Akhtar Says:

  15. Crixus Says:
