BlackBerry App World 3.0 is amazing. A complete redesign of App World 2.0, the new version features a much more relatable carousel of apps and categories; searching is made easier; and in general, the entire experience has been improved. Today, though, App World becomes even more amazing-er with the release of App World Included in this latest release are "UI changes to the background and app details screen," "Further improvements to the speed and screen transitions," and "Various bug fixes."

BlackBerry App World 3.0 has not been officially released; the only way to get its wonderful goodness is by joining the BlackBerry Beta Zone, where you can be among the first to get new apps. And if getting to experience App World 3.0 before almost anyone else isn't a good enough reason to join, then I don't know what is.

BlackBerry App World updated to version in BlackBerry Beta Zone


Got the update yesterday, 3.0 with QNX look on the home page make it look to too cluttered on a bold's screen. Only thing I don't like is that you can't ARCHIVE apps, see the amount of memory left and ignore some of the uninstalled. But overall it's a huge improvement from 2.0

it still sucks, bloated on the Torch 9800 and it doesn't show all my apps, just the ones i upgraded since the new beta was installed. oh well, back to the beta forums to report this mess.

Unless your using a torch. Appworld 3.0 is a downgrade at least the homescreen is. There's a lot to like about it but the carousel is worse and some design issues regarding the sliding descriptions aren't crash hot nor the layout of those descriptions on smaller screen device.

You can now 'delete' those apps that was uninstalled using the 'ignore' feature in the menu.

ignore has been replaced by hide however does the same job it fails to get rid of the
uninstalled i also find the carousel poor and finally it doesnt show upgrades when
they are released

At least with this newer version it now says I have apps installed. The last version said I had none, which prevented me from seeing any upgrade notifications

any word on whether 3.0 will allow for "update all" rather than one by one for app updates?

I've always been jealous that ios users can do this.
