New BBZ10- app help

I just aquired my Z10 and am disappointed with many apps that I had on my Curve are not available on the Z10. Why is that and some apps in BBWorld say cannot be used on Z10?

 

Shouldn't ALL the apps in BBWorld be usable on BB most advanced phone or is that why?

 

Please help. I miss my Gas Buddy, GO Transit Mobile App, etc!

Thanks

Re: New BBZ10- app help

Hello,

BB apps have always had the challenge of needing to be ported to every specific model number BB / major OS level combination. In only very few cases is an app truly available on ever combination of those. Most app developers choose to port to only some subset of that so as to maximize their profits.

With BB10, the change is not evolutionary, allowing for mere porting of the app. Rather, BB10 is a revolutionary change, requiring all apps to be re-written from the ground up. While I've heard that app development for BB10 is actually easier than legacy, it nevertheless falls to the developer to choose if/when they will do so.

If you are wishing for any specific app, the best place to put pressure is with the developer...you can of course find contact information for them on the AppWorld catalog page.

Good luck!
