BlackBerry App World Storefront Goes Live “Officially” – New Features

app world storefront upgrade We told you earlier this week that RIM had soft-launched a new version of the BlackBerry App World Storefront website. The new version let you login, purchase, and install applications through the site. Here are the official changes:

  • Purchase apps directly from the website
  • Edit My World accounts to sync app downloads directly to the BlackBerry smartphone
  • Read and write reviews and recommend items to peers
  • Access purchased or downloaded apps from a computer  via the My World page in the  BlackBerry App World storefront

On the other hand I have noticed many other changes. For example, they have now fixed the ANNOYING bug that did not let you search App World in Firefox since the moron brilliant designers used the JavaScript global event() which only works in IE. Here are my other notes:

  • You can now change the language easily with a drop down menu
  • You can also change the currency shown using the drop down menu
  • Registration is now possible from the website
  • It logs you out of the site expiring your session within about 5 minutes which is SUPER annoying
  • It will tell you if a previously downloaded app has an upgrade from the site
  • My World will show you apps that used to be available but no longer are
  • You can reset your My World from the site
  • The login does not seem to persist well between different tabs

Check out the new App World Storefront at RIM has also published a document on the new storefront at this link.

  1. FireFox? IE? Works great in Chrome :)

  2. Yeah they fixed it now! Before it wouldn’t let you type in the search box in firefox. Sloppy coding.

  3. The session expiration is terrible. I tried to load an app and it timeout during the load. When I went to AppWorld on the device, the app showed ready to download.
    So far in my testing the store front has potential but is pretty worthless except for browsing.
