It’s been almost three years since BlackBerry announced its first smartphone, and the BlackBerry 10 operating system is a big hit with the masses.
BlackBerry 10 has been praised for the speed and ease of using BlackBerry 10, but what about the software?
Some software testers say that BlackBerry 10 is a much better operating system than the previous BlackBerry 10 OS, BlackBerry 10 Mobile.
BlackBerry software testers in the U.S. have already taken to Twitter to share their opinions about the BlackBerry software testing process and the benefits it brings to the company.
“Silhouettes” or software testing can be done by anyone and has been around for decades, says Michael J. Ritchie, founder and CEO of BlackBerry Software Testing, which provides software testing to BlackBerry 10.
“I have tested over 100 different BlackBerry 10 phones and I am not surprised at all that we have found a lot of good software for BlackBerry,” Ritchie says.
Ritchie is a member of the BlackBerry Software Test Team, which he co-founded in 2010. “
You can test on a variety of devices and that is the real benefit of it.”

The BlackBerry Software Team works closely with BlackBerry’s Software Engineering and Testing Group to make sure that BlackBerry software is as up to date as possible.
“There is no point testing on one device if it doesn’t run well on another,” Ritzer says.
When you have a variety in your testing, you can get feedback on the same features or features you are testing on.
“We are working to make it as easy as possible for customers to get feedback about their BlackBerry 10 experience, whether it is on the phone, on the tablet, on a PC or on a mobile device,” Ritton says.
Ritzers software testing focuses on BlackBerry 10 apps and apps that are not part of BlackBerry 10’s core operating system, such as the BlackBerry Mail, BlackBerry Web, BlackBerry Music, and BlackBerry Calculator.
Ritzer and his team take the time to review and tweak the applications and make sure they work as well as possible on each device.
The software testing experience isn’t as extensive as some other BlackBerry software developers.
Ritner says that the BlackBerry team has about 10 to 12 people working on the software testing project each week, which is more than other software developers, who are typically spread throughout the company, and their own teams.
“It is a large team, but it is very manageable,” Ritzer says.
As part of the software development process, Ritchie helps to ensure that each application that BlackBerry developers use is up to the latest version.
Richey says that he takes the time for his employees to work on BlackBerry’s operating system.
“They can do anything that is not a core BlackBerry feature, because they are not doing core BlackBerry things,” he says.
For example, Ritzy says he helps his software developers create and test apps for their apps, and for those applications that do not run well, he will take those applications and modify them to work better on the BlackBerry platform.
For BlackBerry software, there are a lot more software updates that developers need to update to make the software run smoothly.
“Our software development is not an automated process,” Richeys says.
It is the time spent doing that work that is important, he says, adding that there is no time or money that can be spent on software testing for BlackBerry apps.
Ritto says that developers have to do a lot to ensure their software is up-to-date on BlackBerry devices.
“A lot of times, they do not update to the newest versions because they don’t want to upset the user base,” he said.
For software testing in general, Ritto recommends testing on older BlackBerry devices, such to BlackBerry Mobile, which includes BlackBerry 10 and its apps.
BlackBerry Mobile is BlackBerry 10-based, which means that developers can take advantage of BlackBerry Mobile’s advanced software testing capabilities.
“For example, they can run software tests on BlackBerry Mobile and test it on older devices and see how it works on those devices,” Ritto said.
“And I also have a couple of different tests that I run on the old BlackBerry Mobile devices, so I can see how the BlackBerry is doing on the older devices.”
Ritto’s advice to developers is to keep testing as fast as possible and make it clear to users how to upgrade their software.
BlackBerry is working hard to make software testing as easy and streamlined as possible, Ritmans says.
He says that BlackBerry has a team of about 70 software engineers working on software development.
“If you want to be an expert, you have to be a developer,” Ritties statement reads.
“Developers should be able to create applications and test them in as short a time as possible without the need for a team.”
Ritman says that while software testing provides a great tool to help improve
