Android ports on BlackBerry 10 are nowhere near ideal and any user could have told you that. Its reassuring to know that Alec Saunders, head of BlackBerry developer relations, is aware of the issue. He told CNet that "From a commercial perspective, users hate them… Our partners who have ported apps get dinged for them." Alec explained that it is all about momentum. The last 50,000 of the 120,000 current apps in BlackBerry World were created over the last 4 months. Android ports are a quick way to get companies to test out BlackBerry 10 and gauge interest it “is not the ideal situation.”
That is why I am glad to see apps like Songza realize that it is time to go native. They have confirmed that they are working on a native app due to user demand. This is exactly the kind of process that Alec is counting on to onboard large developers to BlackBerry 10.
How do you think the BlackBerry 10 Android runtime is helping get apps to BlackBerry 10? Personally I am a huge fan of a few apps I have ported myself including Google Maps and my Chase bank app.
