BlackBerry App World now has direct Mac transfers

RIM today quietly sent word that the BlackBerry App World web store now fully supports Macs. Those who visit the store can now push an app directly from the store to the phone like their Windows counterparts. Mac users previously had to get the apps directly and were given an "unsupported" flag.

The BlackBerry designer has made a number of steps to cater to Mac users in recent weeks and just last week added BlackBerry PlayBook syncing for the desktop app. RIM already supports indirect iTunes syncing. It so far doesn't have direct calendar and contact syncing.
