BlackBerry World Has 120,000 Apps And 47,000 Is Made By 1 Company
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.
