RIM has launched a RIM-operated community forum for BlackBerry users.

MyBlackBerry is akin to a bulletin board and is intended as a place were any BlackBerry users can share tips, stories, review apps and discuss their handsets.

RIM has said that it will keep tabs on what goes on with the intention of learning what’s working and what’s not for Blackberry users.

This is undoubtedly a good idea – not least because BlackBerry’s App World store has not enjoyed the success of Apple’s App Store.

With the aid of feedback from MyBlackberry, perhaps the Canadian company will be able to rectify complaints such as the store being hard to navigate and confusion over apps.

It might be an idea that Apple could adopt since there are plenty of iPhone users that would be willing to talk about their apps.
