Research in Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) has been getting in the headlines much more since its new BlackBerry 10 operating system reached store shelves in the U.S. in the last couple of weeks. The new OS has gotten its share of positive reviews, though domestic sales are modest. But it is clear that there has been some positive momentum building for the company with this new system, which the company desperately needs to have some level of success in order to stay viable in the smartphone and overall mobile market.
Research in Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY) has done a lot to make sure its BlackBerry World app store is stocked with as many apps as possible and is continually adding to it. But have you checked out the store lately and found your favorite apps available? The number of apps is reportedly easily in the six figures, which makes it pretty robust for a brand-new OS, so those favorite apps just might be there for you, or they could even me already pre-installed on the Z10 smartphone. Convenient, eh?
But what about those “must-have” or “gotta-have” apps? The website N4BB, dedicated to all things BlackBerry from Research in Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY), posted a piece regarding what it considers several must-have apps for the BlackBerry 10 operating system – apps that are available, but are not pre-installed like Facebook Inc. (NASDAQ:FB), Twitter and others. We have to realize that this is an opinion, but the author does present a helpful list of 10 apps that BB10 users should make sure they put on their smartphones. The apps aren’t rated as the 10 best, but instead are categorized by social, news, messaging and others that don’t fit neatly into any of these categories.
We’d like to provide, for you as a public service, a visual tour of the 10 apps that N4BB believes should be on your Research in Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY) handset, if they’re not there already. These are not included in any particular order – except maybe alphabetical. Check these out and if you agree, get on your Z10 and download them, for crying out loud!
