With an average of 3 million downloads daily, BlackBerry App World hits the one billion total
In this context, it's been pointing out some of the games and apps that have been performing on BlackBerry App World, which is about to reach its 3.0 version.
RIM points out in the two years since it launched, the app store is now handling three million downloads daily, and has now topped one billion in total. Not so much compared to Apple's 15 billion total or even Nokia's 5 million downloads daily count on its app store, but it's a start.
All adds up
Leading the games charge is BlackMoon Design's Doodle Blast. Only available for the PlayBook tablet, it's a free doodle puzzle game, developed with Flash, that's been downloaded 40,000 times in three months.
In terms of apps, German outfit Bellshare has accumulated almost 10 million downloads for the free versions of titles such as BeBuzz and BeWeather, also generating over $1 million in sales. BlackBerry Messenger avatar, emoticon and chat app Jingu has been downloaded over 700,000 in less than a month.
