It’s great when developers share download numbers because it gives you an idea of what you could be making as a developer for BlackBerry, and helps dispel the myth that you can’t have a business making BlackBerry apps. VQ Mileage Tracker has announced that they’ve been downloaded over 250,000 times. The download number is likely including all those who downloaded the free trial but it’s still a really great number. Assuming they had a decent conversion rate, the company made a decent amount of money off the BlackBerry app alone.
Also announced is VQ Mileage Tracker’s new integration with Microsoft Outlook. The app will now automatically add Outlook Calendar events to user’s mileage tracking reports.
VQ Mileage Tracker is currently priced on BlackBerry App World at $9.99 on promotion. The app works on all current BlackBerry models that have built-in GPS and run BlackBerry OS version 4.7 or higher.
