With hundreds of entries and 23 awards up for the taking, this event is obviously a big deal for the UK mobile industry. We're pleased to be up against some really great companies this year - 7 of them, in fact! The competition will be fierce and we wish everyone the best of luck.

Mippin Featured as BlackBerry Success Story

We here at Mippin are pleased to be selected as the latest featured developer in BlackBerry's series of Developer Success Stories.

This story itself is on a project which began last year to build a portfolio of 20 high-quality titles as apps optimised for each BlackBerry Smartphone OS as well as for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

The support from BlackBerry has been incredible and the response to our apps has been overwhelmingly positive. OK! Magazine, as an example, received over 50,000 downloads in the first two weeks alone and was the #3 app in the magazine section of BlackBerry App World globally for over 6 months! The whole story is worth a read and you can check it out here.

But what's even greater about this story is that now anyone with their own content can create an app of this quality using the BlackBerry App Generator. The apps can be submitted to BlackBerry App World straight from the App Generator and the whole thing is completely free and requires no coding whatsoever. Now THAT is a success story!

Request an invite to the BlackBerry App Generator to get started on your own app!
