First BlackBerry 10 apps previewed at BlackBerry World

A well-stocked app marketplace will be the key to the success of the new BlackBerry 10 OS. Here's an idea of what RIM already has 'in store'

Alongside the launch of the first prototype BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha device, RIM has also lifted the lid on some of the applications we can expect to see debut on the forthcoming operating system.

The announcement at RIM's BlackBerry World expo in Orlando, Florida has set the stage for the launch of the vital BlackBerry 10 OS, which most expect to arrive early in the autumn.

Among those add-ons leading the charge will be the popular social fitness app, Endomondo, which has proved to be a revelation on iPhone and Android, largely due to its in-depth array of statistics and Facebook integration.

Location-based app Poynt is also on-board "helping you become a local expert" wherever you roam, while for those would-be developers who seek to create their own BB10 experiences, Mippin will be your friend.

Another popular iPhone and Android app, 360 Panorama will enhance the new Camera app within BB10, which already boasts the ability "turn back time" by snapping frames before you physically take the photo. Wikitude also makes use of the new and improved camera software by bringing powerful Augmented Reality into play. It's AR meets Wikipedia.

Which popular apps would you like to gravitate towards BB10 and will it be enough to save RIM from extinction? Let us know in the comments section below.
