New BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps features and APIs on BlackBerry 10

Android Development

TITLE_IMAGE

Hey everyone! It’s Matt here with some exciting news to share with you regarding support for new BlackBerry® Runtime for Android™ Apps APIs in BlackBerry® 10.

Since the launch of the BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps on BlackBerry® PlayBook™ OS 2.0, we have had thousands of Android apps successfully ported and posted to the BlackBerry App World™ storefront. We’ve also heard many requests for additional features and APIs for the BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps, and today I’m happy to share with you what some of those new features will be in BlackBerry 10.

A feature request we heard from both developer and end user alike was for multi-window support. Applications built for the BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps will now launch in separate windows, allowing for multitasking and viewing just like regular native BlackBerry 10 apps!

Additionally, we have added API support for Camera and In-App Payments. With these additions, we now support even more potential Android apps and offer an additional way for developers to monetize their applications. In-App Payments will work with user’s existing BlackBerry® ID and be processed through BlackBerry App World.

These new features will be available in the BlackBerry 10 Runtime for Android Apps beta, and will be coming as an update to the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet later this summer. More Runtime for Android Apps features will be coming to BlackBerry 10, so stay tuned!
