BlackBerry 10 app discussion | BlackBerry Today Episode 22

In this special edition about BlackBerry 10 applications we are joined by Paul Steel of LifeOnMobile. We dig into Android porting versus native BlackBerry 10 OS applications.  Why developers should develop for BlackBerry World (formerly AppWorld) and does porting an Android app make it better or worse than native.

Towards the end we look at the Waze navigation app beta for BlackBerry and BlackBerry Travel.
