Now that App of the Year is approaching, we are putting the spotlights on our main sponsors. We are really proud to announce that our friends at BlackBerry were very happy to partner with us for App of the Year.
BlackBerry supports App of the Year because they believe in the power of communities. ”We really believe in a close working relationship with developers. That’s why we offer them knowhow, (marketing) support and all the necessary tools. And it’s also the reason behind our enthusiasm for an event such as ‘App of the Year’, which gives Belgian developers visibility.”
How does BlackBerry support App of the Year?
“Next to structural sponsoring – which allows the organization to offer all visitors refreshing drinks free of charge – we also contribute to the gift barrel. Among the 200 prizes in the barrel are 4 Playbooks. Those of you who have no or little experience with BlackBerry can visit our speaker’s corner for more information or just to meet up and chat with us.”
In the speaker’s corner BlackBerry will talk about the tools and support they offer developers, and why developing for the BlackBerry platform is an interesting option, now and in the future.
What does BlackBerry think about the App of the Year nominees?
“We think The Mobile Revolution came up with a great initiative. It’s really difficult to choose from all the exciting apps that were nominated. Personally we like using the Collect & Go app by Colruyt, which is easy to handle and saves us a lot of time. Videozone is our favorite though: it allows you to create your personal movie stream by setting up your favorite channels, and makes it possible to save movies, so that you can play them later without access to wifi or 3G. Moreover, the app is very user friendly.”
We are looking forward to meeting BlackBerry at App of the Year. Readers who don’t have a ticket for the event: please leave your questions for BlackBerry in the comments!
PS: That’s right, drinks are free at App of the Year thanks to BlackBerry! And what about winning one of those Playbooks?
