Page 1 of 11

Curious what the best BlackBerry apps are? A great thing about smartphones, which makes them useful and more attractive for users is the possibility to install applications. With releases of new models with more powerful hardware, developers are constantly working on upgrading and releasing new applications which can come in handy in many everyday life situations. Since there are literally hundreds of thousands of apps available for mobile operational systems like Android, iOS or Windows Phone, there are app stores which are designed to facilitate the navigation through available applications.

Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) is a manufacturer of BlackBerry smartphones which are still struggling to conquer the market. After going through a rough time, Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) finally managed to find its way out of the woods with the release of Q10 and Z10 smartphones, which are  slowly gaining success on the markets. Until a couple of years ago, BlackBerry phones were used mainly for work, being the popular choice among businessmen and women, and there were not many applications available. This is why, with the release of newer models, developers of applications have a larger-than-normal ground to cover.

Blackberry's app store, App World, has over 100,000 apps for BlackBerry phones and the Playbook tablet, which is an impressive number, but it is small compared to the number of apps available for its main iOS- and Android-based rivals. Apple's app store has over 850,000 applications available for the iPhone and iPad--we've taken a look at the best-selling Apple apps--while Google's Play Store has about 700,000.

However, a Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) user will certainly find among this 100,000 apps some of the most popular and useful, which have gained success on iOS and Android devices. Aside from apps, App World also offers music, themes, and movies available for download.

To sum up, one thing is certain, Blackberry phones and tablets have a potential, and developers can increase their revenues by creating software for these devices. In the meantime, we have decided to take a look at the current situation in Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)'s App World. Interestingly, while App World offers both free and paid apps, all the positions on our list are taken by free apps, but maybe the situation will change in the near future.

Let's see the 10 best BlackBerry apps:
