There are currently 120,000 apps on the BlackBerry World app store.  Unfortunately, around 47,000 are made by one company called S4BB Limited.  Because one company controls 50% of one app store, you could imagine that a large number of them are low quality.

S4BB Limited is a mobile app company based in Hong Kong.  Some of the apps have practical use, but many of them are just terrible.  The usably functional apps include a QR reader app.  Some of the useless apps just wrap around Amazon and Wikipedia with a slightly different user interface.

When Apple noticed that a lot of spam was entering their App Store, they completely banned some companies as a whole including Khalid Shaikh’s Perfect Acumen.
