Get rewarded for creating BlackBerry mobile apps through the cross-platform Titanium by Appcelerator.
Want to get rewarded for creating BlackBerry applications? Here’s some good news for mobile app developers. Research-in-Motion (RIM) and Appcelerator are collaborating to provide incentives such as financial rewards, free services and testing hardware for creating BlackBerry 10 applications. These incentives are applicable to Appcelerator’s ecosystem of over 390,000 developers. Using Titanium’s cross-platform capabilities, developers can build and port their apps to BlackBerry 10. Titanium for BlackBerry 10 will be available on December 7, 2012 in a pre-release version.
According to Appcelerator, those who standardize on the Titanium platform will be able to market their apps up to 70% faster and optimize business results. Appcelerator has demonstrated Titanium support for BlackBerry 10 at the recently-concluded BlackBerry Jam Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, where it hosted an on-site developer workshop. Not only that, RIM will offer training and support through a webcast beginning the week of December 10, 2012.
The incentives are as follows:
- The first 100 developers will receive a BlackBerry® Dev Alpha test device, once their application has been submitted for review on the BlackBerry® World™ storefront
- Up to 10,000 developers will receive one year of free Appcelerator Cloud Services (ACS) and Analytics, once their app is approved and available for sale on BlackBerry World
- Applications that have been submitted can qualify for the BlackBerry 10k Developer Commitment
According to RIM, the Titanium (final code) support for BlackBerry 10 is expected to launch in the New Year, ahead of the BlackBerry 10 launch event, which is scheduled for January 30, 2013.
