Macadamian Sees Big Business Potential With BlackBerry 10

GATINEAU, QC, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Macadamian ( ), a user-experience-design and software-development studio, is embracing BlackBerry 10 and devoting a quarter of its workforce to the new platform, with 10 apps already developed for it.

"We are fully committed to BlackBerry 10," said Frédéric Boulanger, Co-Founder & CEO of Macadamian. "We have been impressed with the ease and elegance with which we have been able to design for BlackBerry 10, and with the strong business potential of this new platform. Even more exciting is how RIM's developer-relations team has dedicated itself to building a robust and global developer ecosystem for BlackBerry 10."

To date, Macadamian's 50-person BlackBerry 10 business unit, which represents a quarter of the company's 200-person workforce, has developed or ported 10 apps for the new platform. This includes:

  • #Taxi: Just dial #taxi to hail the nearest cab, anywhere in North America.
  • Conference app: Developed for  the 2013 BlackBerry Jam Europe conference, taking place February 5-6 in Amsterdam, this app helps attendees register for sessions, view their agendas, fill in surveys and view the conference floor map to stay informed and organized.
