BlackBerry responds to Facebook’s abandonment of BB10

Despite its best efforts, BlackBerry says Facebook and WhatsApp will not reverse their decision to discontinue native app support for BlackBerry 10.

“We are extremely disappointed in [Facebook’s] decision as we know so many users love these apps. We fought back to work with WhatsApp and Facebook to change their minds, but at this time, their decision stands,” says the Waterloo-based company in a newly published blog post on Inside BlackBerry. “Despite this, we have worked hard to ensure our end users have the best experience in light of this decision, and are continuing to search for alternate solutions.”

BlackBerry goes on to add, “Our commitment to BlackBerry 10 and to developers has not changed – we know our developer community continues to be one of the strongest proponents of BlackBerry 10 and they are creating thousands of apps every month.”

To offset the loss of two core apps, the company is launching a new initiative called Great Apps on BlackBerry. Every two weeks, BlackBerry World will feature a new selection of 20 compelling natives apps. Moreover, the company says it’s making strategic investments to ensure other popular apps like Twitter don’t also abandon the OS.

Lastly, BlackBerry is asking passionate users to tweet their discontent at Facebook and WhatsApp using the hashtag #ILoveBB10Apps.

    If windows didnt have several billion dollars. They would be next. It’s a two of market.

    • Vern LaRiviere

      That would be true if Microsoft didn’t develop it’s WP7/8/8.1 apps itself. Blackberry could do the same for itself if it chose to.

    • PygmySurfer

      BlackBerry DID develop the BB10 Facebook app, and as far as I know Microsoft DID NOT develop the Windows Facebook app.

      Facebook first deprecated and is now getting rid of the APIs that let 3rd party clients access it’s content – that’s why the BB10 client is going to stop working, and BlackBerry is unable to fix it.

    • Ali F.

      Exactly. I use to use a third party Whatsapp app on my WebOS device and it was really nice, then suddenly they just decided to stop everything. WTH, why? and now this.

    • MassDeduction

      Probably because mobile revenue opportunities are limited to non-existent when third party apps are using your APIs, vs. when they’re using an official app. It’s all about the revenue streams. But it sucks for something like WebOS that doesn’t have an official app.

    • Iain Simpson

      actually Facebook are making the new windows 10 apps. Instagram, Facebook and messenger.

    • MassDeduction

      BlackBerry has no intention to release new BB10 models. That’s a dead platform quite literally. Microsoft and other OEMs continue to release new devices, and several PC vendors have gotten excited about Continuum in the enterprise. As long as Windows 10 continues to grow, and it remains fairly trivial to include phone support in Windows universal apps, Windows’ phone future is actually relatively secure IMO. It’ll remain a niche, but if it grows in the Enterprise then it could be a durable niche.

  • rd0t

    Sad but this was inevitable. Facebook for BB10 had no support as is. WhatsApp, on the other hand, will be a hit to a lot of BB10 users. They should at least let a BB10 dev create a 3rd party WhatsApp client as there are a ton of great BB10 devs that have stepped up and made some really great apps.

    • I think they just want more control over the app and experience and data. If they have no more third party apps, that means 100% of the user data goes to them unfiltered. The user experience is also the same across the board too.

      I have a Classic and as much as I like Facebook, I wouldn’t like them to have all the same permission that they have on my BB as they do on Android.

  • gommer strike

    Why did they have to respond this way? Why couldn’t they just use this as an opportunity to promote BBM, and remind users that they can always just use Facebook from the browser(and they’re better off, for it)?

    • Jonah Emery

      You need a Facebook app in BB10 so that your notifications flow into the Hub.

    • gommer strike

      That’s true. However Facebook app has been such a battery hog that I’ve resorted to only using the browser shortcut version of it, be on iOS or Android. And so for that reason I had entirely forgotten about the notifications.

      Facebook Messenger would be the exception of course. I hate to say this, but Facebook Messenger is actually a very well done app. It does not hog battery, interface is actually fairly well done, and almost feels like it was coded by a different developer team.

  • Sighmonsez

    I think Blackberry can stop pretending because Blackberry users are pretty smart bunch. BB10 is dead and Blackberry will not continue to support it. Why does it continue to say that it will? What happens to those who believe this lie and buy a BB10 device with a belief that it will continue to be supported? Blackberry’s continuing insistence that it will support BB 10 is quite misleading and at worst, a fraudulent statement.

    • Very true. But what else can Chen say? He can’t make it sound like a burning platform 🙂

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Why not? His Bulls hitting isn’t fooling anyone and in fact that doing more harm than good

    • I think most CEOs have learned from Stephen Elop

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Not Chen. The guy is clueless.

      Something you know nothing about, right doooosh?

    • Sighmonsez

      @another. In this particular situation, silence would have been golden, at least about Blackberry’s plan to keep supporting BB10. We all know this is totally false. I’m afraid this is not going to be another Sybase for Chen. BTW, has Chen turned around any other company besides Sybase? Just wondering where Chen got his turnaround specialist reputation.

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Yeah he turned out some dinky operation called Pyramid back around 1993-1994.
      I honestly don’t know where people think he’s some great ‘turnaround guru’ He’s just another typical CEO that fires a boatload of people to save costs while hoping/praying the rest of the fantasy comes to pass. He’s been lucky and that’s all. Sybase and Pyramid were companies operating in a vastly different, slow growth market compared to whats happening today.

      Personally I think the guy is way overrated, in over his head with this company and a lousy communicator with his broken English that you think he’d overcome after living most of his adult life in the U.S. Putting people like this into senior roles who can’t construct a sentence with two hands and a flashlight is about as dumb a move as it gets. Worst CEO in tech today bar none.

    • J-Ro

      It is easy to say all of that as a spectator but the fact is that his “luck” has gotten him results in two companies that needed it.

      In the tech market, it is hard to predict anything but he is doing a good job of keeping them floating for now

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      Don’t forget your r@cist comments about how he is a “Chinese buffoon”.

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Yeah. A buffoon he is. Just like YOU. lol Always defending this thing to the hilt. Even though practically no one is using the shjt anymore. 30 million users worldwide down from over 80 million not that long ago. It’s dead. Only one not getting the messages are BB drones like you.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      Yet you spend countless hours each day trolling each and every article about them… can you say ‘pathetic’?

    • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1

      WWFC spends a lot of time in Chen’s office.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      More man on man fantasies? I hear Timmy’s desk calling you…

    • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1

      You’re a buffoon, Claim to be American (although it’s debatable is Minnesota counts)…

      By this logic this makes you an American buffoon. So that’s r@cist too?

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      You’re a dumb fuq….

    • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1

      Sure thing American r@cist.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      Hahahahah try harder looooser

    • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1

      No need Minnesota r@ciat.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      What is a r@ciat?

    • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1

      True
      True
      True

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Chen has been so inconsistent on this subject it’s hard to take anything he says on this seriously In my view these guys are lying through their teeth because anyone with half a brain can see BB10 is finished The writing has been on the wall for years

    • Brad Fortin

      The writing has been on the wall since the PlayBook.

    • OttoVonBismarck

      And yet the message still isn’t registering in their thick skulls down there in Waterloo. Instead you get a company claiming its still going to support BB10, even though all indications are to the contrary they’ll go with Android from here on out. Sure, they’ll do a couple more updates and then they’ll leave it high and dry like they did the Playbook. It’s their modus operandi

    • Sighmonsez

      @Brad. Shouldn’t you be lining up for the 5SE? I already got mine.

    • Brad Fortin

      Hahahahaha, line up for a commodity. That’s rich.

  • Raj Singh

    While it is telling that these two services have pulled support from BlackBerry 10, it’s better to log in through the browser. I dislike having that application installed on my devices (whether that’s Android, Windows Phone, iOS or BB10).

    • dc2000

      As much as I like to agree with you, I too use a shortcut to facebook, it’s all about giving customers the choice..

    • Can’t Fix Stupid

      Well that’s not BB choice it’s facebooks. And BB10 must have really fallen off the radar if these companies drop support.

      BB now appears like Germany as the Russians and the Allies breached the German borders in WW2. Once mighty but now overrun.

  • Allan

    No big deal. Blackberries are supposed to run Android anyways.

  • MartinJdub

    Take a quick look in the windows phone forums…replace the word windows phone with BlackBerry….same issues, different pile.

    Windows is only surviving because of the millions and millions of MS dollars…and multiple attempts to provide a compelling mobile experience after 10 years of effort…remember WM 5.1?

    • Iain Simpson

      not really, many new universal apps are coming online with windows 10. Facebook, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Twitter and many more in the works.

    • Eastvanfan

      Too bad they’re not coming to the windows 10 mobile platform. Windows phone is not far behind Blackberry 10 being a dead platform.

    • MassDeduction

      There was a stronger argument for that a year ago than there is today. The number of Windows 10 universal apps coming on a weekly basis is very impressive. As the strength of Windows 10 grows on the desktop (and Xbox One, and HoloLens, and, and…), this is having secondary and tertiary benefits for Windows 10 Mobile. It’s relatively trivial to include Windows 10 Mobile support in universal windows apps.

      And, *finally*, they’re releasing tablets running Windows 10 Mobile. That’s another boon to support for Windows on phones.

  • Can’t Fix Stupid

    “…of BlackBerry 10 and they are creating thousands of apps every month.”

    Did he actually say this out loud? Thousands of apps every month?

    • Ali F.

      Honestly, all any platform needs is no more than 200 Apps of the most used apps in the world. Notice that nor Apple nor Android are counting anymore how many apps they have because it is no more relevant. I dare anyone who can count the names of more than 100 apps.

  • Ali F.

    I don’t understand why Whastapp is still insisting on keeping its API away from developers. Now with Facebook, it is even worst.

  • robinottawa

    Switch to Telegram?

    And abandon FB.

  • Tootall

    They are both the same company so you would expect they would drop both. Facebook is a power sucking app anyways!

    Just make a passport running your sweet new version of android, and make the battery life not total garbage like on the priv. I love the passport, best build quality/keyboard combo ive ever used in a device…. but BB10 is dead.

    • Adderbox76

      I’ve said it a thousand times. I’m not a fan of Blackberry AT ALL. But if the Passport ran Android, I’d be all over it. I love original concepts, but the software experience is useless to me.

      Before a bunch of rabid fan-boys flame me for that; I use Android because of the seamless syncing with google services, which seamlessly syncs to my chrome browser on my desktop and laptop and tablet as well. If I look something up on Google maps on my computer, it’s on phones history immediately and I can just pick up and keep going. If I start reading something on chrome on my phone, I can go to my desktop and it’s already in my shared history ready to be opened and continued. If I start reading an ebook on my tablet, I can pick up from the same page from my tablet or my desktop or my laptop. The services…just….sync…

      Yes, I can perform the same feat by downloading a dozen new apps on Blackberry, but why would I bother? Why use an OS that requires extra stuff installed just to make it at all convenient?

      tl;dr – Blackberry Passport: Awesome original hardware, useless software.

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Well put. The same could be said about iOS but irrespective none of these Rimtard clowns understand the first thing about ecosystems.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

      What a surprise… a BlackBerry article with this littl girl spreading her legs all over it.

    • OttoVonBismarck

      If anyone knows anything about ‘spreading’ its you. Like peanut butter on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Just can’t get enough of the BB stories and your incessant need to come to the rescue as it were. Fckin pathetic.

    • ap199209

      Coincidentally I switched over from a passport to a priv this week but if they were to release a new passport running android I’d gladly go back

    • OttoVonBismarck

      The only reason the battery life lasts longer on a Passport or any BB10 device is because the OS is garbage and doesn’t really demand much power usage. That’s the end result of a device that has no real utilitarian value. That said I get a day and half from the Priv. That’s more than sufficient for anyone’s needs.

    • Eastvanfan

      No, it’s because the or is actually optimizing better than the fragmented android os. BB 10 is only being kept alive because the governments want them and can’t be convinced to go to android so Blackberry is stuck. Chen did screw up this when he decided to abandon the developers.

      Blackberry needs a CEO who understands how to grow a company now not to continue to do anymore cost cutting.

      IOT isn’t the answer.

    • OttoVonBismarck

      You make a point but BB10 doesn’t run anywhere near the same number of native applications that iOS or Android does so its easy to optimize a bare bones OS that it is. It’s the most undemanding software out there and yet the company finds it necessary to still make high powered, over-speced devices in order to drive sales. Like putting a V12 in a Toyota Corolla.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Yeah but you can’t tell that to the Rimtards. They simply can’t believe that the OS is finished in the consumer realm and isn’t even that dominant in corporate either anymore.
      Instead you get lame a$$es like Marty Beard and Chen posting cr@p on Twitter begging these companies to not abandon BB10 because they love it so much. Sentimental claptrap.

    • Whaaa Whaaaa Flagging Cowards

  • d mac

    Just use the android app dummies!!! It’s the same same netflix use snap and download the android version..this is really old news but many people still don’t know that bb10 handles most android apps

    • OttoVonBismarck

      It handles them poorly. Running non-native applications on that platform is a joke. Anyone with any experience using these devices will tell you that its vastly inferior. Why settle for a cheap clone imitation when you go have the real thing. BB10 is finished. End of story.

    • d mac

      Firstly, any of the major apps I have never had a problem using snap, mobile one or Amazon to download. Out of the 1000 apps I have 99% are android with no issues. Secondly, if u ha issues either u don’t know what u are doing or just lazy.. go ge ge priv than, I had one, it was better than any other Droid I’ve used but still not as intuitive as bb10 os

    • OttoVonBismarck

      People don’t want to waste time using Snap to sideload applications. They want out-of-the box solutions. You call it lazy but I call it common sense, especially when you’re paying several hundred dollars for a phone and need to find work-arounds to get apps you use to function properly. Amazon App Store is also total shyte when stacked up against Google Play or iOS App Store.

      It is my fault that apps would crash and have poor runtimes on the BB10 platform when I used it? Uh..don’t think so. It’s just an inferior experience and that’s the bottom line. You people still touting that cr@p for an OS for it being ‘intuitive’ (that’s a laugh) are really a barrel of laughs. Nothing ‘intuitive’ about it whatsoever.

      And yes, I do use a Priv and agree its a decent Droid device. Problem is they should’ve done this years ago and now that they are they should stick with it instead of pushing a dead OS because certain people can’t move on from it.

    • d mac

      What sideload?? Bb10 is not bb7. All those I mentioned it installs just lik any other app. Sideload required your computer

    • Sighmonsez

      I think Otto meant side loading Snap. He’s just a BB hater. Can’t stop with the insults.

    • d mac

      Don’t even have to do that anymore either, I noticed last year can just install straight from site now lol. End of day as long as people stop buying those useless iphones I’ll be happy.

Of course they must all be !diots and you and your ilk the only smart ones. I tend to view you guys as liars making up shjt to sell the shortcomings of the antiques you carry in your pockets.

      Haha…Yeah. That’s what all you BB liars say. How non-native apps run so well on the BB10 platform when all you’re really doing is shilling hard to make up for the obvious deficiencies.
      If you’re that inclined towards using Android apps because they are indeed superior to BB junk offered up in their own store, then you’d use any number of solid Android devices out there instead of playing pretend with what you have because you think you’re sooo superior to anyone else. You guys are the LAUGHING STOCK of the smartphone world. Bottom line.

      Hahahahah look at Captain Butthurt back again. I use Android apps to supplement those that aren’t native to BB10.. like Netflix or my banking apps. Did it ever occur to you that I don’t want android because it is laggy malware fragmented garbage? Or that I don’t like any hardware from Android OEMs? Are you really this stuuuuupid?

    I do not run facebook on my phone for two reasons, 1 it is a pig. 2 is compromises security with what it wants access to.

    I uninstalled the facebook app on my Note 3 and my work phone (blackberry leap). Who are these people clamoring for it? It’s a drain on battery life, and doesn’t work as well as the mobile site in browser…

    • OttoVonBismarck

      Haha…What BS. How desperate are you really?
