BlackBerry World Is Closing in December 2019. What Does It Mean For Your App Development?
BlackBerry’s mobile application marketplace, BlackBerry World, closed in 2019 as to the phone manufacturer completed its transition to their new operating system (OS) – Android.
What this means for your app development is that you will still be able to reach BlackBerry users, but your path to them has been rerouted through the Google Playstore via Android apps.
Android app development companies are, therefore, your best bet, but there are still benefits to be reaped by hiring a former BlackBerry app development company.
Read on to learn more.
BlackBerry App Development Companies: Why They Still Matter
BlackBerry app development companies have been shifting their focus to Android and iOS since 2017 when the announcement of BlackBerry World’s dissolution broke.
These are now fully specialized in developing Android and iOS apps, but they have retained some of the advantages of their previous specialization.
Namely, as they were losing their commercial appeal among mainstream markets, BlackBerry mobile phones have carved their space within the markets that require high quality, well performing and secure devices. As such, it could often be seen in the hands of government officials and other professionals who deal with highly sensitive information.
BlackBerry mobile phones have retained these features, touting their product as “the most secure Android smartphone.”
BlackBerry app development companies, therefore, offer two important advantages in comparison with their Android app development peers:
- They are trained to prioritize security: BlackBerry’s main selling point is their heightened security and privacy features. BlackBerry Android developers will apply these features to our mobile app(s), granting you and your users the protection they expect.
- They understand the high-profile users: Having developed applications used by government officials and industry professionals, BlackBerry android developers are best positioned to design and develop applications tailored to the preferences of these types of users.
As BlackBerry World Shuts Its Doors, Follow Your User Base To The Nearest Exit
The truth is, while some of BlackBerry’s user base has remained loyal to the brand, many have switched over to other phone manufacturers and, consequently, operating systems.
Therefore, the best course of action to recover from the change or to enter the app marketplace successfully, is to research your target market anew.
You may still want to keep your focus on the former BlackBerry android developers to pursue their above-mentioned qualities, but the second filter to these prospective partners should be their new OS specialization based on your target markets’ OS preference.

BlackBerry Apps In Retrospect: A Brief Overview Of BlackBerry’s History
The first device under BlackBerry branding was released in 1999. In the years to come, it would become one of the most sought after mobile phones, frequently seen in the hands of business people and pop stars alike.
BlackBerry’s reign in the high-end mobile phone market had been going strong even after the rise of smartphones powered by iOS and Android operating systems. Their own app market named BlackBerry App World launched in 2009, a year after the App Store and Google Play came onto the scene.
By 2010, BlackBerry App World was growing fast and it had recorded the highest revenue per app of all three leading app marketplaces – 41% more than Apple, its biggest competitor (Source: Internet Archive)
However, it soon became apparent that BlackBerry was struggling to keep up in the new smartphone landscape.
In 2013, BlackBerry App World rebranded to BlackBerry World. That same year brought more changes to the phone manufacturer:
It marked the peak as well as the beginning of BlackBerry’s user base decline. And, it was the year when BlackBerry announced that the company was on sale, eventually agreeing to Fairfax Financial’s offer of $4.7 billion (Source: NBC News)
In 2016, Chinese TCL Communications bought the global rights to BlackBerry branding under which they’d continue to produce new lines of smartphones, while BlackBerry Limited focused on their services and software. (Source: The Verge)
In 2017, it was announced that BlackBerry World would close by December 31, 2019, as BlackBerry devices switch over to Android’s operating system. (Source: TechRadar)
