BerryStore - an App Store for BlackBerry
posted by PhoneArena Team / Oct 09, 2008, 8:36 AM
We tried the BerryStore beta on our Blackberry Bold and managed to successfully install quite a few programs without issue. The interface is reminiscent to the iPhone's App Store "Categories" view (see images below), which is acceptable for the moment because of the relatively limited number of applications (45) available. However, BerryStore would be well advised to include other listing methods as they expand.
Such application loaders (in-phone) have recently become popular after the success of the iPhone App Store. Microsoft is reportedly preparing a similar application for Windows Mobile 7, and Google's Android platform has the Market.

Don't think so. Get it Now and the App Store are almost two entirely different things in respect to the way they function. I doubt that Apple paid any attention to Get it Now when creating the iTunes. I had Verizon for years and I always thought that Get it Now sucked. Why would apple steal Get it Now? You guys are just trying to make any connection possible to justify that Apple had to have copied it from someone else. Nothing apple does can every be original or great. Everything they do has to be bad, manipulative, condescending, etc. And if by some wierd chance that apple did copy Get it Now, at least they took the time to make it distinctively different in how the store functions and LOOKS.

The Berrystore is a great idea, even if it wasn't original. The truth is, is that it brings exposure to a wealth of 3rd party apps which may not get the distribution otherwise. I work for the location based mobile app, WHERE, and we have seen users of the phones embrace our app because of the distribution through these various channels.

Handango anyone? That has been around serving smart phone and blackberry users for quite some time now. Nobody can claim original. They just take the same idea of an electronic department store and put their own pretty picture on the front of it. KNIBB HIGH FOOTBALL RULES!
