BlackBerry App Generator to be EOL’ed

Way back in May of 2012 Mippin and BlackBerry announced support for BlackBerry and the BlackBerry 10 platforms. This support seems to be coming to and end as BlackBerry is currently sending out emails to inform users that BlackBerry will place the App Generator on end of life effective May 29th 2015. You can check out the full email below and let us know what you think about it in the comments.

You are receiving this email to inform you that the BlackBerry®App Generator end of life is planned for May 29, 2015.

To ensure your service is not disrupted, BlackBerry is offering you the opportunity to use the same App Generator service through the Mippin* App Generator. We just need your consent to transfer your account.

Here’s what you need to do

Prior to May 29, 2015, log in to the BlackBerry App Generator at www.blackberryappgenerator.com/blackberry and you will be asked if you would like to transfer your account to Mippin

If you provide your consent, we will transfer your BlackBerry App Generator account to Mippin on May 29. The new service will be free of charge until December 31, 2015. Prior to this date, Mippin will provide you with options to continue the new service.

If you do not provide consent to transfer your account, your applications created through the BlackBerry App Generator will be removed from BlackBerry World on May 29.

Looking ahead

BlackBerry® has made the decision to end of life this product as part of our shift in strategic focus to serve the needs of enterprise customers. As such, we will no longer accept new applications created through the BlackBerry App Generator.

We appreciate your support of BlackBerry App Generator and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Thank you,
The BlackBerry Developer Program Team
