Xtreme Labs reaches 10 Million Downloads for BlackBerry-Exclusive Apps


Xtreme Labs let us know that they have recently hit a pretty awesome benchmark of 10 million downloads of their clients’ BlackBerry-exclusive apps. Some of these apps include Urbanspoon, NBA Gametime, and AccuWeather.com. The company has Elite status in RIM’s Alliance program and it helps them get technical, marketing and sales support. Xtreme Labs are working on a lot of iPad apps right now and hopefully they’ll be working on some BlackBerry Cobalt Tablet apps if possible.
