Re: Limited Apps-

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

For some reason, you seem to think that BlackBerry is in control of the apps that exist for the platform. That's incorrect. Rather, it's the app developers that choose which platforms to support with their app...if they decide to not write their app for BB, then the complaint about that is best raised with the app developer. The device manufacturer is a victim of this, not the culprit.

Good luck!
