As far as I like and support 3rd party vendors who are willing to assist companies to make their services available on other platforms, it is sometimes ridiculous that we actually want to support these companies. From Instagram to Whatsapp, they have had their own legal issues. Now, SnapChat is coming up with the next wave of problems.
The 3rd party vendors (in this case nem0ry) makes your services available on other platforms, or should I say a larger population of users, thereby helping them to boost the user’s using the application, raising your service or product’s outreach and exposure.
But because of their company’s incapability, they can’t create one for BlackBerry or Windows Phone, and we probably would not see one soon because they are just plain incapable or uninterested.
As far as loyal users go, the use of these 3rd party applications shows they want to support your service but unfortunately, these companies do not want your support. So why should anyone even consider supporting them or to even use their service?
In this case, SnapChat is coming after Snap2Chat due to the application being a paid staple in the BlackBerry World storefront, and they themselves are missing out on the revenue that they should really be paying to the hardworking developer for proving that it is easy to create for BlackBerry platform unlike their current incompetent engineers.
Whilst yes, it could be true that Snapchat’s allegations that
Nemory Studios “improperly uses Snapchat’s trademark in its app title and includes the unauthorized use of the Snapchat ghost logo.” They add it violates terms and conditions of the application and “other federal and state laws.”
It is amazing that they continue to play dumb and oblivious to that fact that they were forced to make this application for their own loyal userbase. Do you think that the companies are just playing a sadistic game with BlackBerry users to deprive us all of quality applications?
Nonetheless, Snap2Chat Lite is still available in BlackBerry World, as a free application. Let’s hope Nemory Studios gets it cleared as soon as possible!
