Although an update to the 7digital Music Store for BlackBerry 10 came last week, it seems as though it didn't fix all of the issues folks were having and as such, another release has been made available through BlackBerry World. This release is appearing as v5.69.6.2, which is just a point release higher than the previous one but it does have a slightly different change log to go with it.

  • Fix for PayPal issue in the Canadian French store
  • Fix for custom download directory issue.

I saw in the CrackBerry Forums after the last update some folks were having issues with where their files were being download to on their device, so hopefully this will correct those concerns. The update should be live for everyone right now, so be sure to grab it if you were among those experiencing problems.

I asked them directly. They transferred my comments tu the development and management department, to the garbage section I think.

I live in a smallish city. Between WalMart, Target, London Drugs, Future Shop, HMV, a dozen pawn shops I seem to have an endless amount of choices for the acquisition of music... hard copy style.

In a year, when this "arrangement" expires, I will still have my hard copy. No migration, no fighting with a call center to get my music back.

Best part is, I don't have to settle for an Android app, OR iTunes.

...I don't buy that argument any more...maybe initially...but when I see many, many smaller developers building quality native apps, I have absolutely no sympathy for companies with a larger workforce...this whole "oh there isn't enough demand" garbage is HS...maybe all said developers should just pool together and contract out to build native apps for all these companies who can't figure out how to do it for themselves...........

Ding! Ding!

I agree with everyone on this. I was hoping that the Android port was just a "stopgap" until they re-integrated with BlackBerry World or at least gave us a native app.
If there is a deal between the two companies, it should come pre-loaded on the next phones and it should be built for BlackBerry.

They should definitely just integrate 7D into the BlackBerry World. I always thought it was weird that Apple had the app store and iTunes store... why not just combine and make life easier?

Isn't the BlackBerry 7 Digital deal only for 1 year? Maybe BlackBerry / Amazon have something cooking? Would be pointless to develop a native app if it's only good for a year.

I highly doubt BlackBerry has anything cooking with Amazon. I highly doubt BlackBerry is even thinking about the consumer market at all.

BlackBerry, despite insisting they are still interested in consumers buying their phones, are doing everything in their power to discourage consumers from even looking at them. They are going to pre-load the Amazon App store on the Passport and Z3 LTE with 10.3. The existing BlackBerry 10 install base using Z10s, Q10s, Q5s, Z30s, and Z3s get to wait until some time in the future after the classic launches at the end of the year to get 10.3.1 rolled out (if BlackBerry even rolls it out to older models) to get the Amazon App Store per-loaded.

Meanwhile, they killed off Music and Videos in BlackBerry World, and they never bothered to bring over services to BlackBerry 10 equal to those offered on legacy devices such as Cloud Backups through BlackBerry Protect (as just one example).

Terrible, terrible app. Download of any song takes hours...... if it downloads at all. waiting 6 hours for one song and, it's still not here. God awful.

Music/Videos not in BlackBerry World and now Apollo App not in BlackBerry World!

I downloaded Pandora from Apktrain.com, purchased a Pandora One subscription. I'm now purchasing music from Amazon Mp3.

No More Music!!!!! No More Videos!!!

+ infinity for a native app. Too many lazy ports. It's not a video game, it's a store! That's like building a Walmart under a camping tent!

I used my almighty Z30 to create this CrackBerry madness!

I've said in a forum thread this is literally enough for me to leave BlackBerry 10 next month...

I'm not setting up PayPal and I'm not side loading apps to do basic things.

will not be using this. I bought lots of music from the BlackBerry app store because it was nice and convenient and just got charged to my phone bill. not impressed by this move

Should have just left things the way they were. Buying music from this app sucks compared to BBWorld.

I'm sure people know this by now, but just in case: 7 Digital and other Android files can be found in Device/ Misc/ Android/ (the app folder you are looking for). This is the default save for many android apps. I can access them from the native file browser on my Z10. If you already know this you can disregard, I'm just commenting to help those that don't know, or might be having some problems finding the save location.
