Rad Systems Releases App Manager For BB10

App Manager for BB10 is available from Rad Systems for $2.99 USD.

You can check out this Developer Hero Program winner in BlackBerry World here or from the BB World app.

Below are some of the features. I’ve tested Kiosk Mode using the phone app. As the author warns, some apps have extra permissions, this test showed that in Kiosk Mode, it could access Contacts, not a problem if someone is just using phone for a quick call. Quick Launch works well for some that like to start a particular app when system is started.

Check it out for yourself, small app at only 385kb, not intrusive.
Good Luck.
