It seems like no matter how much App World grows, BlackBerry is still kryptonite to some of the top apps like Netflix and Skype. Today, Skype confirmed through their Twitter support channel, @SkypeSupport, that they have “No plans for a BlackBerry PlayBook-compatible Skype release.” This is another huge blow for RIM in the quest to fill App World with quality applications. This comes just days after the popular BlackBerry app, YouMail, announced they would quit developing for the platform due to a declining number of BlackBerry users.
All these major application developers declining to develop for BlackBerry makes for lots of frustrated BlackBerry users. I can assure you; however, that RIM is working hard both in-house and with external developers to bring all the best applications to BlackBerry. It may not be this week, or even this year, but once BlackBerry 10 launches and adoption picks back up, all the major applications will follow. Just keep your heads up, BlackBerry faithful, BlackBerry 10 is on the horizon, and with it will come all new opportunities for the brand to grow.
