The problem is, that now isnt the possibility for good integrated 3rd party apps.
I am not sure I understand what you mean. There is the possibility for good integrated third party apps, for example WhatsApp.
And I think and rss reader for news, is a basic for getting information.
I use RSS feeds everyday, but I don't think this is a basic need. Proof?
There is no official RSS reader on Windows 7, Windows 8, MacOSX, or even Android or Windows Phone.
So yes, this is important, but I can understand that it is not a BlackBerry priority. Let's face it: your neighbour knows about Facebook and twitter, but certainly does not know what RSS stands for (or may even never have heard of it or think it is a deadly disease).
In the meantime, you can bookmark your RSS feeds in the browser. Not the best by any means, but it works.
1: that ne the news app will come from BlackBerry directly, BlackBerry news would be enough, like on the PlayBook
the app exists on the Z10/Q10, it is called BlackBerry Newsstand.
2: the developers need all important APIs for creating good integrated apps.
Okay im not really good about all the things with app development, but I think one of the problem is, the missing working headless apps for native apps... why android apps can run headless, but native not?!
I agree, headless apps are good but this has nothing to do with the subject of this discussion The most brilliant apps are not headless. Headless apps are mainly for geek persons, who want more customization or more control on their device. We are talking 2% of all BlackBerry users, maybe less.
As far as I know, the BlackBerry 10 platform is the platform that gives the most APIs to developers. More than on iOS / Android / Windows Phone. And in an easy way too (5 lines of code to add a camera feature in an app).
Just look at WindowsPhone users. 40k apps available, compared to the 100k for BlackBerry 10 since January 30th (that is just 4 months).
