Seriously? $1000 “I Am Rich” App Hits Mobihand App Store

Comments

i am rich blackberry app

An app recently appeared in the BlackBerryCool store that is going off the success of the I Am Rich application for iPhone which was subsequently pulled from the App Store. The I Am Rich app for BlackBerry is just as ridiculous and seems to just put a couple of gold bars as your wallpaper along with an icon on the homescreen.

Share Your App Purchases on Your Social Networks with Blippy

Comments

Through a partnership with Blippy, a social-commerce site, the BlackBerryCool Store now lets you share apps with your friends using secure a OAuth system. You can now connect your BBCool store account with Blippy, and let your friends know of any cool deals you’ve found. No other personal information other than the app you purchased, with its name and price, is shared. This service is totally optional but if you have a lot of BlackBerry friends, they’ll surely appreciate the heads-up on some cool deals or apps.

Introducing the New BlackBerryCool On-Device App SuperStore

Comments

The newest version of the BlackBerryCool on-device App Store has launched and it’s officially a SuperStore. The app store features 4 main categories including Apps, Themes, Games and Accessories. With a single click, you can enter the store and see the Deal-of-the-Day, bestsellers, specials, new products, browse by category, and search. This is a huge update as themes and apps are no longer grouped together, making the browsing experience much more enjoyable.

Once you have downloaded the App Store, no need to sort through software depending on your device. The app store automatically detects your device, and only serves you applications available for your model. The BlackBerryCool SuperStore also features, for each product type, a new “top grossing” product list. This means higher-priced products that sell relatively fewer units can earn a spot on the top-sellers lists. Other improvements to the store experience include some major performance enhancements.

Stay tuned because tomorrow morning we announce a HUGE contest to celebrate the official launch of the store.
