BlackBerry Giving Away $100 For You To Build an App Generator App

BlackBerry Blog Bounty

BlackBerry is going a bit overboard with the BlackBerry 10 app bounties at SXSW 2013. They have decided to create a blog bounty for anyone who uses the BlackBerry App Generator to create an app. They are giving away $100 per app you create with your own content (up to $2,000 per vendor up to $500,000) for apps submitted between March 8, 2013 and 11:59:59 pm ET on March 17, 2013.

That means if you have a WordPress blog, Tumblr, YouTube Channel, Facebook page, Flickr gallery, or anything that spits out an RSS feed you can make $100. You just create an app in 10 minutes and you are golden as long as you own the rights to use the content in your app. In other words do not try to create an app using Justin Beibers website.

Check out the details on the DevBlog or in the terms and conditions. Head on over to the App Generator here.

  2. I only wish the App Generator could handle a Twitter feed. :-/

  3. Papped, your app should have auto magically ported to bb10 via portathon and thus eligible for 100 bucks

  4. Oh great. Just what we needed. More junk apps filling up BlackBerry World.

  5. This makes absolutely no sense. BB should be encouraging devs to create _high quality_ apps, not stuff like this.

  6. Ah yes and BlackBerry World having 5 million sound boards and ring tones is “High quality”

    Papped, I had a few apps pre portathon that auto ported and are eligible. This current new date may be different from “Portathon” however any apps submitted and thereby ported before above date is eligible.

    Ie no resubmission, if in doubt contact BlackBerry developer program.

    • Today I got contacted about returning my dev alpha even though I sent it back (and it was marked as received) in Jan…

      There’s always a billion questions from people about eligibility for every single BB dev program they’ve had since the dawn of time (after the fact, rather than it being covered ahead of time).

      If there’s one thing BB Dev program support is not, it’s organized….
