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

Posted Aug 22, 2013

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.
