  1. I try go purchase but it says this item is being updated try after 24 h!!!

  2. do the video and audio player remember where you are after exit? For the life of me, I can’t figure out why RIM does not include this feature on its phones or the PlayBook.

  3. @Buff: No not yet, only does that when you’re still in Pesktop. However, we will make it as you suggested. Thanks a lot.

  4. App World’s bug has been fixed. You can purchase Pesktop now. Thank you.
