RIM Listens to Devs & Adds Adobe AIR Apps to Built for BlackBerry $10K Commitment

BlackBerry Built for 10k commitment Adobe Air

When RIM announced their new Built for BlackBerry quality app program and $10,000 developer commitment last week they focused on Native and WebWorks apps. Adobe AIR developers felt a little left out in the cold bunched together with Android Runtime apps. Quite a few devs asked RIM to reconsider and it worked. RIM’s ultimate goal for both programs was to help developers build successfully BlackBerry 10 businesses and creating great apps for BlackBerry 10 owners. Adobe AIR apps can be both so they are now included in both offers.

It all comes down to quality now. Check out the details over at the official Built for BlackBerry and the $10K Developer Commitment pages.

  1. RIM is doing a good job at pusing dev as much as then can. I hoping with all the incentives that great project are started and completed and BB10 comes out on top.

  2. I don’t like the Air Apps on my PB hopefully none of them win the challenge. They make PB look bad.

  3. Oh, I do like that Native SDK logo. Is that new??

  4. What are some of the air apps on the playbook how do you tell the differnece

  5. Yeah it adds another abstraction layer. Personally I think a lot of the change was for games.

  6. oh very true so why did RIM make them in Air instead of native. thats very weird then just last min add them to the Built for BlackBerry.

  7. Supporting AIR is like supporting Java. For best performance, let’s go native!
