OSBBx Launches App Centre for the BlackBerry PlayBook
One of the challenges facing users on the BlackBerry PlayBook, is the difficulty in finding open source applications and ensuring you have the latest version.
OSBBx have just launched App Centre, a team application put together to allow users to download the latest version of open source and free applications directly to the BlackBerry PlayBook or PC.
- PB Version: Localbar 2 support built in for on-device installation
- Win Version: BAR installation tools built in allowing for download and immediate installation
- Browse the latest emulators and open source applications right from your PlayBook
Three versions are available: BlackBerry PlayBook, Windows and a web version.
Each version comes packed with additional tools and features to help you install apps through the sideloading process as well as using LocalBar 2 for installation of non-app world apps directly on your PlayBook.
At present, they are only accepting Open Source submissions, and some applications when submitted directly by owners themselves.
In an effort to prevent piracy they are not accepting Android ports at this time.
