BlackBerry has no doubt worked tirelessly to make its BlackBerry 10 platform and new smartphones a success. But there remains the issue of its app store. While 100,000 apps were in place by the time the Z10 went on sale in the United States, and new apps are added every week (if not every day), too many very popular iOS and Android apps remain glaringly absent. It's not uncommon to hear people say they like the Z10 well enough, but they couldn't possibly use it every day because it lacks what they consider a must-have app (or three or five). When asked where he imagines the hold-up is, Gartner Principal Research Analyst Bill Menezes said he wasn't sure. "It could be a royalty issue or some other issue," he told eWEEK. "But the fact [that these apps are missing] speaks volumes about their agility and ability to adjust to the landscape where they find themselves." Below are 10 apps that, if added to BlackBerry World, would do wonders to convince consumers of the viability of BlackBerry as a serious mainstream smartphone competitor. Come on, Waterloo. Make it happen.
