Re: Apps

BlackBerry offered a neutrally worded statement. “We have a strong partnership and are actively engaged around Instagram support for BB10,” said Martyn Mallick, BlackBerry’s VP Global Alliances, “but we do not have an availability date at this point.”

 

 

 The company is working on a port of the Android version of the app,as others have reported.. But Android ports obviously don’t offer the same sort of experience as those developed on BlackBerry’s Cascades SDK. They don’t feel native and, as has been widely reported, they often perform sluggishly and generally appear divorced from the rest of the operating system. There’s no question that BlackBerry would much prefer Instagram for BB10 not to be a wrapped Android app. But sources say that’s the best it’s going to get.
