Posted on 15-Feb-2011 08:20. | Tags Filed under: News.

BlackBerry App World is now available in 27 additional markets worldwide. With today’s announcement, BlackBerry App World is now available in 101 markets, allowing customers to discover, download and enjoy a wide range of mobile applications for their BlackBerry smartphones.

BlackBerry smartphone users are downloading more than 2 million apps per day from BlackBerry App World on average and there are over 20,000 BlackBerry apps available today. RIM continues to support developers in order to provide apps that leverage the many advantages of the BlackBerry platform and deliver best-in-class mobile experiences.

“There is high demand for BlackBerry apps and we’re delighted to be opening up the BlackBerry App World online store to customers in an additional 27 markets today,” said Alan Brenner, Senior Vice President, BlackBerry Platform, Research In Motion. “It’s never been easier to develop apps for BlackBerry smartphones and we look forward to seeing the rich catalog of personal and business oriented apps continue to grow.”

The BlackBerry App World online store is available for all BlackBerry smartphones with a trackball, trackpad or touch screen running BlackBerry OS (device software) 4.5 or higher. BlackBerry App World can be accessed over both Wi-Fi and mobile phone networks and will automatically present users with the relevant catalog of applications available for their specific BlackBerry smartphone model.

Key features of BlackBerry App World include a Featured Items Carousel, Top 25 Lists and the option to scan QR codes associated with an app to automatically find the related page.

Customers can choose to pay for apps through PayPal and major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard and Amex, as well as carrier billing where available. The BlackBerry ID facilitates new payment options, including credit cards and integrated carrier billing (where available), and allows customers to conveniently transfer their personal library of apps when they switch to a new BlackBerry smartphone.
