John demoed how you can make your website into a BlackBerry application. Assuming that you have your resources ready (icons and graphics and a decent internet connection), you can create your application in as fast as 10 minutes. The process seems really simple and straightforward: enter your site’s address or an RSS feed, choose an app layout, customise the colours, and place your logo and app icon and set the price of your app. Upon submission, you will be prompted create a membership account or enter your existing account credentials.
