andylim writes “Just when you thought it was safe to dev a fart app for a BlackBerry, RIM’s VP of platform product management, Alan Panezic, is making it clear that that’s not want RIM is looking for. ‘We don’t need 200 fart apps in App World. Those are apps you’ll use three or four times then never open again. You’re not looking at ads, clicking on ads or buying premium upgrades, and the app isn’t adding any value to your device.’ Turns out RIM wants ‘SuperApps’, ones that keep you coming back for more because they add something to your life – be it ongoing entertainment value or doing something for you. Most importantly for developers, these are the apps that will garner the most revenue; whether it comes from premium upgrades, in-app advertising or additional-cost content.”
