RIM to give US$$10,000 in cash to BB10 app developers

Posted May 2, 2012 by Stuff Staff in News

There’s nothing like a good ‘ole cash incentive to kick you up the backside into developing an app. That’s exactly what RIM is offering developers in order to generate high-quality apps for its BB10 platform.

That means every application that makes the BlackBerry Quality Certification grade before BB10 launches, will put $10,000 into the pockets of its developers.

There are are a couple of key conditions that have to be met first. Firstly, the app needs to tick the high-quality box and be given the thumbs up by a third party. Secondly, developers will need to generate at least $1,000 on their own in order to qualify for their BlackBerry payment. After that, if an app doesn’t earn $10,000 in its first year, RIM will write you a cheque to cover the difference.

Bolstering its commitment to its developers and ensuring its BB10 OS arrives with a fanfare, RIM also announced it’s set to invest a cool $100 million into the BB10 ecosystem over the coming year.
