Leading Blackberry 10 development studio ReFocus Tech updates their apps ‘Tilt’ with new features, fixes and permanent price reduction!

Pune, India (January 22, 2015) Today ReFocus Tech pushed out the long awaited update for their most popular app ‘Tilt’ on BlackBerry World.

The update to Tilt is a huge surprise from development studio ReFocus Tech.

This is a major update to Tilt covering all of the requested features and changes suggested by users over the last year.

On the update and the recent controversies surrounding the app, ReFocus Tech’s CEO Mayur More said, “We are extremely sorry to all our users for making them have to wait for so long for the update. We had given up on Tilt, but thanks to the support of the BlackBerry Developer community and the love for the app shown by all of our users- we decided to rebuild the whole app from the ground up. Regarding the public controversies surrounding Tilt, I hope we all can put that behind us, as things like these keep on happening- it can only make us stronger to face what lies ahead. A special shout out to CellNinja (Roger LeBlanc) for his continuous support and guidance through the course of the project.”
