App World 2.0 Now Available For Most

App WOrld One of the annoying things with App World is that it takes awhile for a new app to show up for everybody. As of this morning we have been hearing some pretty consistent reports that users are now able to download the latest version at www.blackberry.com/appworld or just by searching in App World for “App World.” It is kind of funny to update App World through App World…

As a reminder this new version brings:

Credit Card Payment Option: With the new BlackBerry App World, customers are able to purchase applications using major credit cards, including Visa and MasterCard. Carrier billing may also be supported by certain carriers.

Easier Application Discovery: BlackBerry App World adds new tabbed sections for various applications lists. Users can horizontally swipe or scroll to quickly view the Top 25 Free Apps, Top 25 Paid Apps and Top 25 Themes, as well as the Newest Apps and Recently Updated Apps. QR barcode scanning is also supported, allowing users to scan a QR code associated with an application from anywhere – the web, print ads, brochures, etc. BlackBerry App World will quickly find the related application and automatically open and download its page.

BlackBerry ID: BlackBerry ID provides customers with a device-independent identification (ID) for Blackberry App World. It enables credit card payments and allows customers to seamlessly transfer their personal library of free and purchased apps when they switch to a new BlackBerry smartphone.

  1. woke up to a notice that app work 2.0 is now available. wanted me to login to app world to update, didnt hit cancel to see if i didnt have to.

  2. i was on 2.0.0.XX and it upgraded me to .34 or .36

  3. Same here but its keeping my torch on 2.0.0.28

  4. Still not showing up in Top25 if either Free or Recently Updated apps. Yet BlackBerry Messenger is #2 on Top Free!

  5. Cannot download via OTA – already had previous version of appworld uninstalled. Tried going to blackberry.com/appworld on my 8900 (OS 5.0+) and cannot download – page just refreshes.

  6. Hit the other link, “Open in Appworld”, and you are given the option to “Upgrade”.
