Digiflare looks to end app problems for Blackberry 10 users

by Andrew Roach on February 8, 2013

One of the biggest criticisms aimed at the new Blackberry system is that the range and quality of apps has not been at the level of rival firms such as Apple and Samsung.

However, Mississuaga based developers Digiflare are looking to change this as they launch several major apps for the new Blackberry 10 system.

The apps covers some of the most popular programmes and sites used by Canadians everyday including CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada, AFP and The Globe and Mail.

So far, Blackberry’s Appworld has over 70,000 apps ready for users to download with many more expected to be included as the system grows over the upcoming months.

Whilst new apps are being released every day for the Blackberry 10 system, the reputation of the companies that Digiflare has collaborated with is what looks to draw attention from many users.

Several of the new apps look to cover breaking international news whilst someone is away from the TV with international news agency AFP and national newspaper The Globe and Mail now being able to establish their presence digitally on the new Blackberry devices.

Furthermore, Digiflare’s release also brings some of the more popular media apps to the Blackberr app with leading radio streaming programme TuneIn now finding its place on the Appworld library.

Ontario-based company has also looked to boost an all-Canadian connection with the launch of an app for CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada which is entering its 60th year of existence. The arrival of the app was recognised by CBC’s Executive Director of Studio and Unscripted Broadcasting Julie Bristow commenting that “The Hockey Night in Canada app for BlackBerry 10 allows us to connect with our fans on yet another platform, giving them everything necessary to stay informed and enjoy the sport, right at their fingertips.”

The new Blackberry 10 system finally got its public release earlier this week as the Z10 hit shop shelves across the country on Wednesday and enjoying strong opening sales.

As companies like Digiflare continue to launch apps for the Blackberry 10 system, it will help the system and its Appworld store overcome the teething problems that has held Blackberry’s newest release back over since its launch.
