App World Starting to List BlackBerry PlayBook Games?

Memory4Kids PlayBook App

Not sure what to make of this one. Joe from PlayBook Daily let us know he was contacted by a developer (Jason Fincanon) who has had their BlackBerry PlayBook app accepted into App World. Beyond the lucky b@$+@r& already being eligible for a free BlackBerry PlayBook in RIM’s contest the app is actually listed for everybody to see in App World as you can see above.

The app is called Memory4Kids and clocks in at a very small 268KB and was accepted on December 23rd. There are no reviews and the app is listed as free. Who knows if we will start seeing more of these in App World. The supported devices listing on the right says it supports only the BlackBerry PlayBook running OS 6.0.0 or higher in every country but South Korea. The app has some screenshots for you to check out and they are in the wider PlayBook format though they are still tiny…

Let us know if you spot more accepted PlayBook apps. Memory4Kids is not a graphically appealing app but it is the first we have seen in App World.

  1. Graphically appealing…haha! I have yet to see any app look appealing in app world. Lol. Perhaps I’ve missed a few?

  2. I’m betting Angry Birds will make its way into AppWorld. ;-)

    Memory4Kidz looks like crap. I bet Jason released it in a hurry so that he has the claim of being the “PlayBook’s first game everrrrr.” Well, that and also getting a free PlayBook. That b@$+@r&.

  3. I hope Angry Birds makes it way to the PlayBook! My wife has an iPod and it is a pretty fun game.

    I hope he enjoys his FREE PlayBook.

  4. Looks slick as heck. Angry Birds HAS to be on its way.

  5. Excited to see how the Playbook will weigh up next to the iPad. Hoping Blackberry can knock this one out the ballpark!

  6. Thats a small good news:)

  7. So, why is the first release of QNX on PlayBook called release 6?

  8. Cool, what would be even cooler would be a release date for that thing:)

  9. I wish I had the knowhow to build an app for the PlayBook.

  10. thanks for the update

  11. I don’t know if my 7-year old son would like this game. Lol

  12. Hey guys. Sorry to disappoint everyone with my subpar design skills. I’m a developer so my code skills are a good bit stronger. With that said, I appreciate your opinions and a redesign in in the works as noted at the top of the Memory4Kidz page: http://jasonfincanon.com/downloads/memory4kidz

    Thanks for your input! :)

  13. hopefully some decent 3d games are available at launch to show off the hardware.

  14. I’ve just finished developing a game for the PlayBook. Rather than just porting an existing game from Flash, I instead started from scratch. I wanted to develop a new game mechanic taking advantage of the PlayBook’s particular form-factor.

    It’s called Twystem, and it’ll be available to download on PlayBook launch day:

    Honestly, I think the 7-inch widescreen form factor, combined with the dual-core CPU and integrated Adobe AIR runtime makes for a VERY compelling gaming platform. Even moreso than the iPad.
