Quick Tip: Search for Apps in App World Using Their Product ID

App World Search by ID

This little trick has been around for awhile now but I don’t think we have ever mentioned it on BerryReview. RIM has hidden a little popup in App World that lets you search for an app, game, or theme by using its product ID. You can find an apps product ID easily since it is the number at the end of the URL for each app in App World. For example, the App ID for Facebook for BlackBerry is 680 which you can easily see in the URL for it in App World.

To easily search by an ID in App World you simply hold down the ALT key while pressing the letters STST. That will popup the dialog you see above where you can enter in the ID. This is useful for multiple things like finding apps that are not compatible with your device or apps that have not cleared all the App World cache due to just being released.

Let us know if the shortcut works for you and what you use it for!

  1. It’s cool and all, but unfortunately App World still won’t let me download apps that aren’t listed for my device though they still work.

  2. Actually it’s Alt + TST and I have to use it all the time for testing my App from App World.

    For example: I submit a release to App World, save it as draft before submitting for approving. Then this method does help us to install our beta/test version as normal way you guys install app from App World.

    However, you need to have a Sand Box account to see the draft one. User has no Sand Box account only see the available official version, not draft. And Sand Box account only works with that vendor stuff.
