Retiring the BlackBerry Authy App

Today we came to the conclusion that is time to retire the BlackBerry Authy App. Although our initial strategy was to support as many platforms as possible, we’ve come to the conclusion that is better to do less platforms but better.

Fortunately, the BlackBerry App was used by much less than 1% of the Authy users (around 500). Developing App’s for BlackBerry is a painful and complex process, much more so than Android or iPhone and it doesn’t makes sense to spend twice as much effort on an App with so little impact. So instead we’re focusing those efforts towards making the iPhone and Android App’s even better.

If you have the Blackberry App installed, it’ll continue to work. If you don’t, you’ll have to use SMS instead.
