BlackBerry 10 Compass and Calculator apps updated in BlackBerry World

By Bla1ze on 27 Jan 2014 11:02 am EST

To go along with the update of BlackBerry World, two of the BlackBerry 10 core apps are being updated right now as well. The BlackBerry 10 Calculator and Compass apps are showing new versions available. Both simply just list bug fixes and stability improvements as the changes. It should be noted though that these updates don't seem to be appearing on official OS releases for everyone as of yet. 

They seem to be only appearing on devices running a leaked OS such as the early version of  but that's not really confirmed, just appears that way and while some folks are getting them downloaded others are getting errors while trying to download. If you see them available, go ahead and update. If not, they'll almost certainly come with the 10.2.1 update once that is fully released.



Could they be doing this to see how many people are running leaks?

Posted via CB10


I don't think they need to do this. I'm pretty sure they can tell through other means. Sort of like how a web browser does whenever you access a website, I'm pretty sure your device calls back to BB to update time/date, check for OS updates, etc.


Yeah probably right

Posted via CB10


Yes, since any BES can show, and make reports, of OS Versions in use, I'm sure the company that designed all this can tell exactly what is in use.


I got the updates just fine and in not running a leak

Same here, no leak but getting the update, the original post should probably be edited

Not running any leaks and downloaded just restart blackberry world and you shouldn't have a problem if you do restart the device and you should be good for sure

I don't install OS leaks but the moment I downloaded the Beta BlackBerry World, these two downloads showed up for updates, as well as Evernote!

Posted via CB10


I didn't get the BBW update but I got the calculator and compass updates. They weren't installing at first but after a while I tried again and they installed fine. I have never installed any leaks and I am on

I got them...seem the same to me.


I'm not running the leaked os10.2.1 I'm still running os10.2 but I have received these updates for the calculator and compass, I did however have issues down loading the updates. I had to change my network settings to hspa/umts/gsm in order for it to work! Good luck out there!

Just means the os update is coming.

Posted via CB10


I hope this is a sign from BBRY that they can update the core apps very easily and not need to wait for a full OS update to do so. They need to use this capability much more often. I would love a killer media player with massive TAT influence.


I would also love that!

I would also love more TAT in just about everything


I got them, not running any leaked OS.

Posted via CB10 for the BB-Z30


I just updated to beta zone app world and downloaded 4 updates including calc and compass on a non leaked os version Z30. So it is not just leaked os versions getting them.

Posted via CB10


I got that update too
Indonesia :v

Posted via CB10


After installing the BlackBerry World update, both apps showed up with updates available (so did Evernote), and I'm running stock

I think it is a good sign that they are starting to update core apps through BlackBerry World. If they can get more of the apps updated that way, then we won't have to worry as much about waiting on carrier OS updates.

just downloaden en calculator looks Great, Compas I have no idea


Although this update rolled out in December, for the heck of it I updated anyway. My Compass is still broken and has been since installing and I have this same issue on 2 different Z10's. The compass needle jumps around and "sometimes" finds North. WTH?!?

Am I the only one experiencing this issue?


No you are not the only one. My compass Is 180 degrees off, sometimes. The rest of the time it's just wrong. Has been for a while. I thought the Verizon Official 10.2.1 would fix it. Wrong. Good thing I'm not out in the middle of nowhere!

Posted from my Verizon Official 10.2.1


I'm on. 1925 leak and glad I don't need the compass. Is off 180* and constantly has the interference button come back. Had all metal replaced with crowns in mouth. So cant be me. Lol. Wth?

Posted via CB10


Managed to click download for both apps within the blackberry world website (after signing in) and subsequently the updated versions of both compass and calculator appeared on the phone
Z10 BB10 release


Updated both compass and calculator apps.

I am running the official O2 Software Release on my Z10.

Have not registered or installed any beta software such as the BlackBerry World beta which has been mentioned before.

Updates showed up when I checked the 'My Apps & Games' section of BlackBerry World.

Hoping update to 10.2.1 becomes available very soon.

Bla1ze. Is your compass working?

I found that the interface error means it can get a good compass reading but that doesn't affect the location.

I know that this sounds ridiculous, but can anyone help?

BlackBerry World did not signal an update.

When I ran BlackBerry World - initially the Compass and Calculator app did not appear as an available upgrade. However is was about 5 seconds - then they appeared.
