Post Blackberry Bimmerpost App?

There is already an iPhone app, so why not make a Blackberry app too?
Something that would allow Blackberry users to check the forums on the go and reply to them, see notifications, search threads and posts, start new threads and upload pics, etc. for all the forums (1, 3, M3, 5, etc.)

Is anyone here capable of doing so (or even a mobile site)?

It would really be awesome!

I've been looking for one for the Android too! The iphone app was brilliant and I would love to see it ported over to Android.

Blackberry will be out of business soon, they are losing market share so fast... down to 17%.

It would be nice, I just usually end up posting from full site on my phone. Gets to be a challenge if coverage area is slow...

Not necessarily, we will see what happens when their QNX "super phones" are released. But true, the phones are dying down. That doesn't mean there shouldn't be an app for people who love Blackberry!!

BMW makes the cradles for Blackberry smartphones and have teamed up with RIM to create the office feature that only works with Blackberry phones in the car (you can see your emails and more info displayed on the iDrive screen!). Obviously BMW respects Blackberry too!

So if you know how to, please make a Bimmerpost app for Blackberry smartphones!!! (would be awesome on the new Blackberry Bold 9900 if you can make it compatible with OS 7 and the new line of Blackberry smartphones)

Thanks!

RIP blackberry.

(seriously though, their market share is so little that the mark and jason would get very little 'return on investment' to develop that application. at the end of the day, they would be reaching too small of an audience)

Android app makes sense. A Blackberry app is laughable.

Well, can we at least have a mobile site that would work for all phones?

Their market share is decreasing because the market is expanding faster than they are growing.

Good point, but not the focus of my argument.

Can we just please get a mobile site up and running?

It is honestly the best solution for all users
(esp. Android users because there are so many different Android phones out there with different resolutions, so creating multiple apps would be a pain!).

Blackberry App = iPhone

Sorry this doesn't help, but RIM is dead... Doubt any developer will spend time making a Bimmerpost app for the BB.
