I was surprised to see the BlackBerry DevBlog highlighting a BlackBerry 10 Android port this mornings but I decided to give it a look. They pointed out that Buffer has been brought over to BlackBerry 10 in less than a day and allows you to easily post to multiple social networks. Best of all you can schedule the posts to go up at different times to maximize visibility on each social network. Buffer is a 2 man development shop so they decided to port their Android app and then plan on a Cascades version later. Personally I found the Android port worked quite well though I look forward to a Cascades overhaul.
This is what they told Luca from the DevBlog about porting Buffer:
“Converting Buffer to the new BlackBerry 10 platform couldn’t have been any easier. It took us less than one day to do so and it was running super smoothly immediately. Seeing hundreds of downloads within days and great reviews too was an incredibly overwhelming response from our userbase.”
“Being part of the new BlackBerry 10 platform is super exciting for us. What few people know is that BlackBerry users are the second largest mobile traffic for Buffer, even before Android. So being able to provide a slick app in such a hassle free way made our life extremely easy. And, a large part of our userbase is a lot happier and more productive. Happy Buffering from BlackBerry!“
