RIM Returns Free Avatar Builder Apps to App World in v1.0.1

312767 312780

In an odd turn of events RIM pulled the really slick Avatar Builder apps from App World less than 24 hours after they were released. I was hearing it was for a legal issue and it looks like @CrackBerry was hearing the same thing. In case you were wondering this is exactly what I meant about RIM legal always standing in the way of progress at RIM. Even when they do something cool and unexpected RIM legal has to crap on it. You can also probably blame them for why the app is limited to only 25 or so countries.

In case you didn’t get them before you can now pick up the different versions below:

PS: Anybody else think it odd that RIM seems to be hinting that no BlackBerry user has a nose?

Hmmmmmmm personally I’ve always found noses tto be over rated anyways.. And if u’ve ever owned a small dog (or have a husband) u’d soooooooo understand that statement!

  3. For those of u who’s country limits them from downloading this app a friend of mine had provided OTA links to circumvent this:
