Default Problematic apps for Blackberries

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

We currently do not allow any installs/downloads of third-party apps on our devices. We are thinking of changing this but before we do, I wanted to reach out to see if anyone was aware of any problematic apps, both in terms of memory leaks and/or device instability. Any information would be greatly appreciated, as we would be looking to make a "blacklist" of apps that should not be installed. Thank you.

In my opinion, you're going about this backwards.
You should not be looking to make a "blacklist" as the list would constantly be growing and will be largely unmanageable from an admin point of view. There's literally THOUSANDS of applications that can be considered "problematic" and that's without considering any applications that haven't even been developed yet.

Why not use Application Control Policy to disallow all applications, other than those you approve and wish to "whitelist"?
I think you'll find it's far easier to manage and also gives you more control over what's going on the user's device.
