All Aboard BlackBerry Port-A-Thon ends with over 4,000 apps ported
The All Aboard BlackBerry Port-A-Thon started on December 14, ran for 36 hours and ended this morning.
It was a virtual event with developers logging in in from home, work and elsewhere worldwide.
At the end it was announced on Twitter that over 4,000 apps had been created, which is an incredible achievement.
We did it!! Over 4000 apps! Go #TeamBlackBerry!!!!
