*UPDATE* Another release has now been issued to address the BlackBerry ID issue. If you were experiencing that, go ahead and grab the newer download.

Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season, that new and improved BlackBerry App World experience we've all been waiting for is finally here... well, in the Beta Zone at least. This week, App World Version 3.1.0.38 hit the BlackBerry Beta Zone and is ready for you to try your hand at gifting and begging for apps.

What's New in 3.1

  • Gifting/Begging - allows you to request that a friend or family member pay for any application within App World.
  • Content Rating - allows content providers to rate the maturity level of their content and for you to filter content based on their desired level
  • WiFi Only Support - will allow App World to still operate when a you only have a WiFi connection
  • New Language Support - Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and Dutch

    so does it mean that its now available in countries that were previously not supported?

    Xader

    Nice edit. I saw that "first". ;)

    bilalqwarriach

    no actually i intended to put this as my second post :p

    Xader

    Oh, I figured it was just a placeholder, but I had to give ya a hard time.

    It's all in good fun! :D

    Xader

    Awesome.

    I've been waiting for wifi support in App World. It sucks having to download over EDGE when I have a high-speed connection available.

    bobby_boy

    Too sound old-fashioned, I usually plug my BB into my laptop, connect to blackberry appworld website, then download apps using my USB cable, reducing my wireless account data usage.. (But that's just me, this will make things easier) :-]

    Another website said that it would be released to the public on the 15th of this month.

    daveshiz

    Does anyone know if this is compatible for latest os 7.1 cos I got unable to find app and codeline after I pressed the download button ? Or is it same as latest bbm and is incompatible ??I have loaded plenty beta zone stuff in past

    Bla1ze

    It doesn't like 7.1 -- nor should you expect it to since it's not even an official OS.

    Xader

    Yeah, I've found this to be a problem too. But I'm not willing to give up Wifi calling, so I guess wifi downloads will have to wait.

    siddo_d

    I hope this one is better. I hate being on a beta program and they don't use all the feature enhancments suggested

    kritikal

    I wonder when they'll add the gifting option to the PlayBook

    Danf

    cool so now we can ask Kevin to buy all our apps for us!!!!

    Keep getting "Blackberry Identity update needed.." Tried doing the update and various battery pulls to no avail and the same recycled notification.

    Anyone else?

    spike12

    From the beta forum, its reported to work:

    "go to Aplication Options and delete the current BB ID version you hold, then reboot and go back to app world, it shows a message for you to install the BB ID, once you've install it already, reboot and then it would work perfect!I had the same issue, I did what I just wrote up lines and that's it!"

    diruocco

    how do u get to deleting the bb id version???
    where do u find this???

    LatinoLoco24

    About to try this now. Much appreciated!

    siddo_d

    Wtf is this every second it wants me to update that stupid blackberry identity update thing

    dasDestruktion

    Of course I've installed it and the icon is now missing after multiple reboots. Why does RIM have so much trouble with these disappearing icons? Search the forums. This has been happening for years and years with AppWorld and BBM especially. *sigh*

    Morten

    Hopefully RRoYY will xtract it and make it OTA for 7.1 users :-)

    mohawk apple

    He did but u still need a key code :(

    ifraser

    According to the beta support people, BBM 6.1, Twitter beta and App world 3.1 are not 7.1 compatible just now. (even though i have had the 1st 2 running for 2 weeks) lol

    I requested a beta code but they havent got back to me so guessing they wont supply one unless you can download the app :(

    chunt69

    Installed and seems to work great, so nice to be able to use it when I've got crap reception at home, works fine with network off just solely on wi-fi. Seems to refresh quicker using alt rst now aswell.

    bladerunner6821

    ok. having the same problem as everyone else (Glad i'm not alone) NOW.....is there a solution? Crackberry.com i hope someone has gotten hold of somebody from RIM about this....

    Chaddface

    Do what spike said a coupe posts up. Worked for me. I had 3 different BB I'd's. Deleted them all. Go back and download again. It seems they had problems because all 3 ID's had different version numbers. Thanks Spike.

    spike12

    No prob really. The credit really goes to the folks who posted the solution at the beta forum. Its easy to forget that its the proper place to look for the answer, but this site is so addictive and useful itself!

    07thking

    Dam servers are overloaded with downloaded requests, agggrrrr. Me first people, lol.

    adamschuetze

    Anybody have the .jad file they can post? I can't download this from Beta Zone, since I'm running OS 7.1. I'm looking to install an "Agent Switcher" addon for Firefox, but the addons.firefox.org web site isn't responding.

    gtamhankar

    WiFi support is the biggest addition! Dont really care about the rest...

    ibby-berry

    Anyone Can confirm if it works on wifi in unsupported countries ?
