If you were looking to port your popular app or game to BlackBerry 10, you still can, but BlackBerry will no longer provide you a reward for doing so. BlackBerry has announced the ending of its Port-a-Thon event, a program that paid out rewards to developers for porting their game or app to BB10.
BlackBerry says that the interest in the program was far beyond what they expected. BlackBerry says they paid out over $4 million in developer rewards. This works out to around 40,000 apps for their money, as developers were paid $100 per app that was approved for the BlackBerry World app store.
BlackBerry has promised more developer events later this year, the first of which will focus on making successful games.
