Looking to get your goods on a BlackBerry smartphone or tablet now that the new OS has been shown off? If so, you’re in luck. Mippin, the app creation platform, has announced that it will power the BlackBerry App Generator — transforming content into full-blown apps for BlackBerry smartphones and PlayBook tablets. In a matter of minutes, users will be able to use their info, photos and what not to build applications without bothering with registration or submission fees. Software created via the generator can be fully integrated with BBM for sharing and other social experiences with fellow BlackBerry users. Martyn Mallick, VP Global Alliances and Business Development at RIM noted, “With the launch of BlackBerry App Generator Mippin and RIM are tearing down the barriers and finding new ways to encourage content publishers to create apps.” Currently, applications can only be created for devices running BlackBerry 5 OS and higher. Don’t fret, though, the outfit says support for BB10 will be on the way in no time.
