This Week in BlackBerry World: Blueprints


This week we would like to highlight a great app that allows you to design your own blueprints.

Blueprints offers a 100% native experience of designing floor plans right on your BlackBerry device!

Features Include: Over 15 different tools, 3 backgrounds, zoom, photo editing and so much more.

To get more information about this great app, we asked the developer, Alex Christou of TZapps, a few questions.

“Plan on the go like a pro”


Where did the idea come from?
It started as a project. I wanted to experiment with the combination of a native app with html canvas element and ended up with a simple draw app. Then I realized that we are BlackBerry. We are not average users. We are professionals and we don’t need just apps. We need tools. So here you go.

How long did it take to develop the app?
It took me about a week to develop a Z10/Z30 version and a couple more days to bring it to Q10 and the Passport. Using the app on the Passport makes absolute sense. What a screen!!!!

Who are your ideal customers?
It is ideal for people who use planning, designs and drafts for their everyday business. Architects, engineers, construction workers and all similar professions. At the same time, once you try this you realize that anyone can use it. You can instantly take a photo from within the app and draw anything on it, save it or share it instantly. It can be a modification for your room, or a proposal for your architect, or even a large scale floor blueprint. It can even be a selfie with funny hair!

Why should customers buy your app?
Finding new ways to express our creativity is something that everyone is looking for. Add the native experience of the powerful BlackBerry 10 software and we have a winning combination.

If you were looking for an app like this, look no further and get it now.

Together with this app we are recommending a few other applications available on BlackBerry World:
