BlackBerry App World Updated To Version 1.1.0.33

Been quite a while since we've seen a BlackBerry App World update. Guess RIM thought it was time for one. No idea what may or may not have been fixed in this release folks but if we happen to get a change log we'll add to the post. In the meantime, you can download the latest version from the BlackBerry website or from within app world itself. Have at it, let us know if you notice anything in particular that has changed.

When I go to App World it only shows version 1.1.0.24

Pilot Prop

Ok "now" it shows up in app world after I downloaded it from the website...however, I haven't noticed anything different

CooperDogg

I just downloaded it and for one its a hell of a lot faster than the older version. Ive found 2 new things. When you delete an app instead of saying uninstalled it says "Uninstalled" and in yellow it says *Reboot Required." And the 2nd thing is that I think the colours are a bit darker shades of blue. Hope this helps

1.1.0.33 is showing up for me at blackberry.com/appworld

av8ryxx

Still 1.1.0.24 for 9530

mrl09

It's working I just downloaded it

dov717

Faster, much smoother, less bugs, its about time!

WhoolioPreludee

Yes.it is available for all devices you just have to change you browser ID to blackberry and it will show up

bbkrazy

Not a big issue.. But I did find a small bug ... Is it just me? http://twitpic.com/17hpus

TrinitYPL

That was fast to find a bug already.
Just downloaded it for VZW tour, just email yourself the app from http://na.blackberry.com/eng/services/appworld/download.jsp

willowbeehive

I have the same bug on mine, but it was there before I updated as well. Perhaps its an OS bug? I'm running 5.0.0.461 on an 8900.

They'd better go work hard and go directly to AppWorld 2 cause this one sucks big time

cbssmo

I haven't noticed much with the update. Although, when I go to the My World, it actually shows me all my downloaded apps. That, by itself is worth the update. I hope it lasts. UPDATE: I just had a upgrade notice with The Hockey News app. I upgraded it through the My World folder in App World, and, it worked like a charm, easily beating install times of previous installs. Hallelujah!!!

At the time of writing, this hadn't been automatically "pushed-out" to users, so it can't be too important (You know, when you get the little "BlackBerry App World" icon on the Home screen, to show that updates are available?).

Not that most users will actually get all excited by the latest attempt at an application store from Research in Motion (RIM) anyway...

Stick with the (downloadable) Crackberry.com application store - it's ugly and not all that user-friendly, but it has a MASSIVE catalog, a "deal of the day" and other specials/bundles, plus it's available to EVERY country, INCLUDING premium (paid) applications!

RIM's app world pushes suck anyways, even with apps that have been out for like a week with an update you often don't get the "push" alert of it being updated.

 

*UPDATE* Was recently advised the reason why push sucks is because well, it doesn't exist. The system actually polls, rather then pushing. So that's why updates do not come through as fast as they would if they were indeed pushed.

I always thought it was very slow, this explains why. I'm sure you mean "pulls" rather that "Polls" though. :-)

Crackberry's application is just too buggy to me. I run the blacksheep of the RIM family the 8330m and its horrible. I love the selection that it offers but it just runs too slowly for me. The flashing animations just seem to slow it down for me. At least the blackberry app world moderately runs smooth even if it is just a piece of crap most of the time.

Cadillac.Cowboy#CB

Yeah I agree, CrackBerry.com's Application Store is pretty poor... I find it to be slow and ugly (DEFINATELY ugly!), though I haven't experienced too many "bugs" with it (although ocasionally, my "past purchases" doesn't synchronize with the Internet-based version correctly!).

The main reason I use CrackBerry.com's Application Store is because of its MASSIVE catalog, the "deal of the day" and because it is tied-in to my CrackBerry.com Application Store account, showing all my previous purchases and allowing me to (manually) check for updates or upgrades to applications.

A site as big as CrackBerry.com however, really does need to put a little more effort into their Application Store, ESPECIALLY when it's generally considered to be one of the best alternatives to BlackBerry App World out there...

Personally, I'd like to see the interface given a complete overhaul and the application made a little faster.

DervMan

As a new user, I wasn't expecting to be told of an update, so I was moderately impressed. Less impressed with needing to reboot mind; my 9700 takes a looooong time to restart...

Guyluvsgals

It's working, downloaded from blackberry.com/appworld

NYGriego74

Nothing really different, maybe a little faster?

Cadillac.Cowboy#CB

"Maybe a little faster"?

Dude, this thing's like greased lightning now, and I can navigate between most screens in under a second (most images when scrolling through a list load almost instantly, too...)!

Still not paid applications for the Australian version though, so I'll keep a copy of BlackBerry App World installed for those "only available via BlackBerry App World" titles, but stick to the (downloadable) CrackBerry.com Application Store... As I said above, the CrackBerry.com Application Store is ugly and somewhat difficult to navigate (particularly the former), but it has a MASSIVE catalog, including paid applications!

jwhelan

There was an error when trying to read reviews in the newly leaked 5.0.0.536 for the 9700. This new release of app world fixes that bug.

sharinlea

Hopefully it will solve the "ready to install" bug that's been occurring on my Tour since I updated to 5.0.

nfldberryuser

So I updated and immediately checked my file free memory. Before the update I had been around 93MB. Right after updating I went up to 105MB!!! WTF!!! So I closed BB App World, re-opened the program and rechecked file free memory and I was back down to 96MB. Not sure what, if anything, this means, but it is weird. Otherwise, app seems to work as before.

jlb21

I went from 97-98 to about 102-103.

Cool beans!!!!

jharo

Yeah me too! I went from 6mb to 22mb back down to 6mb, LMAO! The sad part is I'm not joking. That's what I'm really at.

frkm0005

I deleted the App World from my BlackBerry. I downloaded an app and when I "deleted" it from my applications it still left behind an icon that said archived which I had to delete as well. I also downloaded the Imagining theme which placed a link to download more themes on my homescreen which pissed me off even more so I deleted the theme. Once my BlackBerry rebooted there was the archived icon on my homescreen. I got really pissed this time and removed App World altogether. I don't want junk on my phone and when I delete something I expect it to be deleted.

Up yours App World!!

sonar_chris

You have to delete things in app world its self or this will happen.

frkm0005

But, why doesn't every app do that? Also, downloading a theme that placed an icon on my screen to download more was single handedly enough for me to delete it all together. I don't want junk on my phone. It's bad enough I can't delete the myspace and flicker links.

TOKEN25

After I downloaded the upgrade I went to log into paypal, and it's giving me a error code... WTH! always a problem.

mkhattab

How do I update from within App World itself? I tried running a search on "app world" and "blackberry app world" but with no luck

mkhattab

Tried that. It doesn't show App World in the list of 25 Top Paid apps. Is it because I'm in a non-supported country?

angels728

go to Top Free not Top Paid

mkhattab

Sorry mate I meant Top Free. This is where I'm checking not Top Paid

angels728

u can always donwload it from the link someone posted above...give that a try

mkhattab

No joy :(
I'm using the OTA on BBhybrids and that's the only one I'm able to install being in a non-supported country (Dubai)

Trax95008

go to "top free" it will be listed there

gkl

still doesnt work with Wifi turned on...

StormJH1

For the people who read this site and probably visit the CrackBerry store and otherwise know how to located BB apps, AppWorld seems like flawed and unnecessary nuisance. But to the vast majority of BB users who are only moderately tech-saavy, a central clearing house for locating and downloading applications (analgous to a poor man's iTunes) is ABSOLUTELY necessary if you expect RIM and other 3rd parties to work in developing new and improved apps.

People complain about the PayPal thing, but I think that works fine after you clear the initial hurdle of setting it up. I think the bigger problems are the slow response time, poor layout of information, and technical glitches, like the fact that it freakin' deletes itself every week! But they need to continue to work on it and promote b/c it is absolutely necessary.

lucblanchet

They could have spent more time on their new Twitter App... Just a thought. What?? Is that you calling me iPhone?

gcims

Faster transitions and DL's.

decypher44

It was still showing the .24 in App World. Went to the BB site and was able to get the new version. I'm hoping they fixed the issue with having to install it again after battery pulls or changes.

Wolfroid

Unfortunately BB App. world is still not available in my country,despite the fact that all carriers here,offer Blackberry phones for a year now...
Of course no official new OS s,other apps,or whatever...so,am still waiting for that miracle day to happen`...in regards with BB app.W at least!!
bla!

bluegreen1965

I hope it is a good update, because there are lots of bugs to be fixed!

CrackberryTjb

I just updated the App World haven't noticed many changes but it runs a bit smoother now. But at the end of the day the Blackberry App World will still suck!!!

bigcrownvic99

the new size of the updated app would is 1000kb so the picture is wrong..

sabbotage

Mine was only 728k, I think its 1mb if you download it through appworld itself because it downloads the multiple language version. If you go to www.blackberry.com/appworld it allows you to select the language making the download smaller.

theoneohone

Just got it pushed to my phone. FIle size was 1000k. Not expecting any life-altering changes.

Bo1984

I've downloaded the damn upgrade. But when I try to read a review, I get this error:

"There was a problem reading data from the server and BlackBerry App World mus exit. Error type: 100002."

Batterypulls are not working. Does anybody have the same issue?

Cadillac.Cowboy#CB

I'm using the latest Australian version (the same version number above) and I'm not having any problems reading reviews...

servanthands

I'm having the same issue still have not figured anything out yet

Bo1984

My problem was I'd still had my WiFi turned on. After turning it off, the problem was solved! I think it has to do with the WiFi issues RIM recently had.

The Consigliere

For me it seems like everytime I go into App World there's another version to download, I hardly use it anyway, probably because I'm still using an 8310 so my memory is limited so everytime it updates it seems to take more. I don't know, for me, I have the apps that I use constantly & I'm good, maybe when I can upgrade to the Bold 9700 like I'm planning on in a couple months I'll waste more space with some time-killing stuff but for now I'll just stick with the App World I have & not bother with this "update."

Robstar500

After downloading the new App world on my 9700 I thought I would try to access it on Wifi just for fun!
To my shock IT Worked ! I have been downloading away the last 30 mins....

Thanks for keeping us updated Crackberry!

zdman

Grand Hustle Inc

chazzdjr

For some wierd reson after I installed this update my available app memory has increased. Typically after a battery pull I have 14mb after I installed this my available app memory was around 28mb. I like that!

Grand Hustle Inc

HEY IM NEW TO THE CRACKBERRY PHONE im trying to get bb app world and yahoo emails on my bb curve 8350i

K_Daddy

Application memory went from 71 to 102 after upgrade.

LuvMyBB

I've been using App World since it came out and have had exactly *zero* problems with it. Maybe it has memory leaks or something, but other than that, it's worked flawlessly for me.

/shrug

LuvMyBB

Wow, just rebooted since installing. Took less than 3 minutes for the first time. Did it twice just to be sure it wasn't a fluke.

Normally always took like 5 minutes. Coincidence? I hope not.

Super Turtleman

App memory from 71 to 102??? WTH? Mine is usually around 14 or so.

dhong2

just downloaded this for my 9550.
up until now appworld hasn't worked via wifi whatsoever.
loaded up very quick and it now works on wifi for those who are curious.

mkhattab

What if one of the fortunate people that has been able to upgrade saves the application's .alx / .cod / .jad using MCP and gives it to me/us? Would that be wrong/illegal/frowned upon?

giggybbcurve

i recently downloaded the new update and everytime i try to run blackberry app world my phone freezes and i have to do a battery pull. What can i do to fix this problem? please help:)
