There's an App for both Android and iPhones, but why not BlackBerry's?

Just a thought :D

I'm guessing something to do with BlackBerry's java based OS which isn't as stable as Androids or iOS.

Just a guess

Actually, There are a couple reason why there is no Blackberry app for points2shop yet. First, we have to consider the amount of time needed to develop the app on a particular OS and also the necessary upkeep for maintenance and updates. Second, there are little to no offers presently being offered for BB. This may change in the future if BB10 is a success but right now there is just not much out there. Third, Blackberry themselves are unsure about their future and the future of their software so it's definitely important to watch what happens to them and gauge our response from that. This is not to say that there will never be a blackberry app but right now we are working our way down the list of OS's and BB doesn't have a very high priority.

Just to add that Blackberry has a way to convert current Android apps to BB (since they are both Java), but we have not tested this solution and find that an app built for a specific OS is much less likely to fail than one that is converted through these kind of methods.

Hope this helps :)

So could we use this method to do offers without getting banned?

This method is only available if you have the source code for the app which is only available to us. If we decide to use this method then you will be able to use the app just like you would the others
