Blackberry news no longer works

Blackberry News has not worked since about the first ot this month. Attempts to update result in error messages that say to try again later. And it no longer shows up on Blackberry World. Has it been discontinued?

Re: Blackberry news no longer works

Hello,

Yup...BBNews was discontinued. I can't find the formal announcement for that, but it indeed has gone EOL.

Good luck!

Thanks for the info. Nothing like taking away a highly favored app to alienate customers further!

Agree.  I a loyal Blackberry user, but it would have been nice to let us know.  They do not have any applications that come close to Blackberry news.  Most of their "news" applications are pure garbage.

Of those I've tried, AP news seems the best.

Re: Blackberry news no longer works

Agree, but BlackBerry news had the advantage of "feeds" from many worldwide newspapers, while AP is only from AP.
