BlackBerry App World Available Now (For Some)

August 20, 2010 | By | 8 Comments

Now I’ve seen some people offered v1 still, but for some v2.0 is showing, ready for download. Mostly what I’m seeing is those who took part in the BlackBerry Beta Zone with 2.0 are seeing it, while others who didn’t are still seeing v1. It won’t be long before it’s available to everyone, just hang tight. What’s new with the 2.0?

Here’s the newest features:

  • More Payment Options: More options other than PayPal. You can use major credit cards including Visa and MasterCard. They’re also working on integrated billing with different carriers to allow BlackBerry App World purchases to be applied to your monthly bill of those carriers.
  • Easier Application Discovery: new added tabbed sections for various lists of applications. You can swipe or scroll horizontally to view the top 25 Free Apps, Top 25 Paid Apps, and Top 25 Themes, and the lists of Newest Apps and Recently Updated Apps.
  • BBID (Universal account)-BlackBerry ID: This provides customers with a device-independent user ID used with BlackBerry App World. It allows new payment option, and allows you to seamlessly transfer your personal library of free and purchased apps when you get a new BlackBerry Smartphone.
  • QR Barcodes: QR scanning is supported, allowing you to scan a QR code associated with an application from anywhere- the web, print ads, brochures, any where you can find a QR code. BlackBerry App World will find the related app fast and automatically information and it’s download page.

What I like about it? It’s overall much more user friendly. If you have been using the Beta Zone version, you’ll need to update as this is a newer full version. I like the way you can see the top 25 in each major category in a carousel type fashion. You have the newest apps, free apps, paid apps, updated apps, and themes. I like the barcode scanner which is very convenient, but more so is how you can choose how you pay.

    Yea I got the update today when I logged on appworld. It told me to update or it would make my bberry explode. On a serious note, I’ve been trying to download through the carrier billing and every time I try to download it says “error setting up your billing through your carrier. Please try again”. Is this happening to anyone else? And does anyone know what I have to do? Do I have to go to stupid at&t and get them to unlock something in my options? (I had to do that for my visual voicemail). Anyway, any info would be sweet.

    Hey, quick update for everyone. Bbapp world went live to the public today. I got an email from the beta world saying its now public. So now everyone can enjoy my pain (I mean happiness. Lol). Anyway thought I’d pass that along since it hasn’t been said here yet.
