Blackberry application?

From the main page, "4. Create a working software application that uses the ForexConnect API and runs on an iOS, Android, or Windows mobile device"

Are BlackBerry applications not included? I would like to join by creating a BB application but I noticed it is not listed.

    I think only if you count a browser application running on your BlackBerry; the API only comes in specific forms, so unless you port it, or wrap it into a service you can use from BlackBerry, you're out of luck. And even then, BlackBerry isn't listed as an allowed platform in the Rules (though other ChallengePosts have allowed other platforms not explicitly listed, if you can get around the technical hurdles).

    Hi Rick and Wayne,

    Thanks for writing. Per the Official Rules:

    "Contestants must create a working software application which utilizes the ForexConnect API and runs on an iOS, Android, or Windows mobile device, a Windows or Macintosh personal computer, or on a browser (each an “Application”)."

    Blackberry is not supported, we apologize for any inconvenience. We do hope you will enter the challenge and we look forward to seeing what you create.

    Best,
    Marny

    that is sad, the BB10 will handle very well the linux version of your API
