BlackBerry DEVCON Discussion – Super Apps

Dev Con

Earlier this year at Mobile World Congress, we introduced the concept of Super Apps. This is our view of how you can leverage the BlackBerry® Application Platform to create a truly engaging and addictive app experience. The response and interest we received from the community was so great that we decided to create a developer challenge around this concept!

In this discussion, the group recaps the concept of Super Apps and talks about the amazing submissions we’ve been seeing in the Super Apps Developer Challenge.

At this year’s DEVCON, we’ll be revealing the first group of finalists of the Super Apps Developer Challenge. I personally can’t wait to showcase some of these incredible apps! We hope you can join us in San Francisco for this year’s DEVCON. Drop us a comment or question about DEVCON, or check out these helpful links to get you there.
