    Pakistani IT firm 'On top of the world' in Blackberry apps


    ISLAMABAD, Dec 22, 2010 (AFP) - Photo editing software developed by a Pakistan technology firm Five Rivers became the best selling paid-for application for the Blackberry, the firm said Wednesday.

    Lahore-based Five Rivers said its Photo Editor Suite had hit the top spot across all sectors on Blackberry's AppWorld store.


    "This is extremely good news for us and especially for the Pakistani IT industry," Mahe Zehra Husain, the head of operations and product management at Five Rivers Technology, told AFP.

    "We feel we are on top of the world. This is incredible."

    The application "has been in the top five paid applications for quite a while now and on Sunday made its way to the number one spot," she said.

    Photo Editor Suite allows users to crop, rotate, adjust brightness and contrast, recolour and resize photos, Husain added.

    The website of Five Rivers, which opened a year and a half ago, says it has developed and run out more than 100 mobile applications for the Blackberry and iPhone as well as other smartphones.

    This is a good. See, Pakistan has potential to emerge and come out of its current situation-- the only thing it has to do is willingness to give religious obsession a break. If it does that, there's no reason that why it cannot come up with its own niche industries.

    Nobody uses Blackberry for apps these days. It's either Apple iOS or Android. Congrats anyway.

    Are you the Jana who was caught using a Fake ID? Where you acted as a Persecuted Christian Missionary from India? And you were caught with your vicious and venomous propaganda against India and Hindus by Admins of that forum? and kicked out as suggested by Vinod, as that Persecuted missionary's IP was found as an exact match with yours on that forum!!

    Not only that, I have seen her dishonest nature on other occasions too. There was a poll on another website about whether the Chinese members of the forum support China's stapled Visa policy, and a note was made, asking for "only Chinese to vote, Indians and Pakistanis keep their hands off the poll". And this woman immediately went like the sly creature she is, and hit the Yes button. She couldn't work out that the poll choice was visible to public, and tried to act too smart.

    This is the quality and intellectual honesty of Pakistani journalists (yes, this woman is a journalist there). No wonder the entire country is the way it is. I hate disgusting hypocrites like her, who pretend to be all nice and fair and "unbiased" but move all over the internet with fake IDs and post shit about India.

    Fine, let them continue, but two can play this game. Let us see who comes out smelling like shit at the end of it (as though Pakistan needed anymore damage of its image).

    So its 3rd most downloaded, NOT first 1st, as claimed by pakistanis. After pakistan's concocted malicious propaganda (using self-produced fake wiki-leak documents) by (their islamic jihadi) news agencies in pakistan against India, its hard to believe pakistanis have become any less delusional or saner, however, they may distort this news to massage their downtrodden failed state beggeristani ego, and claim to be on TOP in something as useless as Blackberry apps.

    Excellent news, Jana. Thanks for posting..

    And guys, go easy on the angst on her. IMO it is good to have a devil's advocate among us, too many fanboys. What I like about Jana (I know her from PDF) is that she has a anti-india bias but does not hide it.
