BlackBerry App World 2.0 Sheds Beta Tag, Slashes Prices and Devolpers' Cut

Ainsley Jones

According to Chris Ziegler of Engadget Mobile, Research in Motion has announced that BlackBerry developers now can charge between $0.99 and $1.99 for their apps. The previous minimum was $2.99, but it appears RIM has discovered that developers are more concerned with volume than margins.


All the news isn't necessarily good for developers. RIM is also shifting its 80/20 revenue split with developers to the more standard 70/30, GSMA Mobile Business Briefing reports. The announcement comes in conjunction with BlackBerry App World 2.0's emergence from beta status, with additional payment options, including credit card and carrier billing.

Hi, Since on the BB App World it's available a large numbers of themes, are plans to separate themes from apps? or maybe add featured themes or something like that... The Theme Builder not support OS6.0 yet, are plans to update it soon?
