WATERLOO, Ontario (AP) — BlackBerry is adding the Amazon Appstore in the next update to its operating system this fall.

That will give users of the BlackBerry 10.3 operating system easy access to thousands more of the most popular Android apps and games.

The struggling smartphone maker has been criticized for the lack of applications available for its devices.

By adding the Amazon App store, BlackBerry said Wednesday that its app developer program can put more emphasis on business and productivity applications.

Shares are up 3.4 percent, or 28 cents, to $8.33 in morning trading on the Nasdaq.
