Default MDS Applications

Please Login to Remove!

I setup my first BES a couple of days ago and I have been browsing this forum and the web looking for MDS applications. I am trying to see what is available. Does anyone know of any worth while MDS applications?

Thanks,

Doug

Well, I guess since I have not heard anything then there must not be anything out there that's worth while. Thanks for all the reads.

What types of applications are you looking for? There are hundreds you need to explain what interests you have? Are you looking for games, instant messaging, networking tools, business applications?

I am looking for mostly networking applications. Keep in mind that I am talking about Blackberry Enterprise Mobile Data Services apps not Blackberry apps. I have found a few but they are very expensive. I figured with the MDS Studio there would be tons of developed apps available. Maybe it's too new?

MDS Studio = Studio to design your own apps or extend app from your Intranet to the devices. It is a platform for development and deployment.

I know and understand what MDS is used for. Since it is a product that allows the development of apps, I would expect that people would make those apps or connectors to web based apps for sale to other users. I work for a software integration company and it makes too much sense to me that if I develop something that's hot then I'm gonna try and sell it.

I guess others do not think that way. Thanks for the response.

I don't think anyone has released any commercial applications built on MDS Studio yet, as it is still fairly new, MDS 4.1 was only released a few months ago. So far my guess is that MDS studio is mostly used by internal enterprise application developers as a quick tool for deploying their own data apps to devices. I would not be surprised if you start to see some of these apps slowly turned into commercial products, but it takes time to commercialize software.

However hundreds of applications use the MDS communications server for internal corporate network access, since MDS has been available for over 4 years now, such as all of our products at http://www.idokorro.com .
