First off, thank you for checking out the ALL NEW OSBB! We have refocused and recommitted to being a community advocate for independent BlackBerry developers. And as of today, we have just barely scratched the surface of what we plan to offer for developers.
If you have an account with the old OSBB site, you must use the account link at the top right and reset your password before you will be able to log in.
Our mission is...
(short version) ...to put independent developers front and center in everything we do.
(long version) ...to amplify independent developers and their respective applications by providing tutorials for new developers, reviewing the best of the best indie apps, and featuring independent developers in other meaningful ways.
Why are we doing this?
Independent developers have limited to no resources to commit to marketing efforts, and therefore often get overlooked by the community. While, we will not promote any app that isn’t up to snuff, we want to shine some light on all the hidden gems that are present in the BlackBerry World app store.
How do we objectively review apps if we seek to promote them?
Our reviews will be honest, but we will only review quality apps that we feel are worthy of your attention. This will allow us to both be honest with the reader, but also give some attention to worthy developers and their apps. In short, we will not be a marketing arm for ALL indie developers, but we will select and review apps that our editors (all of whom are developers) most appreciate.
In addition to reviews and other content for the everyday reader, the new OSBB will focus heavily on providing open source code, tutorials, and other content aimed exclusively at helping developers do what they do. Every member of our core team is a developer in HTML5 (Web) and/or Native (Cascades), and we will post materials created for us by members of our extended OSBB membership.
