Today sees BlackBerry App World receiving an update in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, and this one is a big one. Pushing up to v4.0, there are a few big additions to note, including the following:
  • Integration with BlackBerry Commerce Payment Services for Credit Card and PayPal Purchases - BlackBerry Commerce is a payment service which manages all credit card and PayPal purchases and transactions made on BlackBerry App World 4.0
  • NFC Tag Integration - NFC tag integration will allow users to swap applicatons lists
  • Ability to Permanently Delete Apps from My World - Users are able to permanently delete apps from My World
  • Ability to Re-Install All Apps From My World - Users will have the ability to re-install all apps from My World
  • Automatic Find in My World - Automatic Find will allow users to search and find apps more easily in My World
  • SMS Authentication - Will allow carrier billing to function for certain carriers who switch from WAP to SMS
  • Removal of Gifting/Begging and Ringtones - Ability to remove ringtones when user receives a gift/beg

That's right, you can finally permanently delete those pesky apps from My World! If you're not already signed up for the BlackBerry Beta Zone, you're missing out on the chance to try new apps and get access to discussion boards and more. While this isn't the update to App World that we saw unveiled during the keynote of BlackBerry Jam Americas today, it's still a worthy update and definitely one you won't want to miss. Grab it at the link below!

BlackBerry App World v4.0 now available in BlackBerry Beta Zone


Excuse my french but who gives a shit if you are first.... its such a stupid hobby. You must be 14. On topic, however, I am happy that they've added the ability to reinstall all applications at once. That's a long missing key function that is really important when you have multiple devices (Torch and PlayBook) and you need to reinstall applications due to an OS update or what ever. I have hundreds of apps on my PlayBook and going through them all to reinstall the 10 apps I have on my Torch is a real PITA. This can't come soon enough.

dunno which Torch you have (I have the 9810) but you shouldn't be able to see the playbook apps on your download list unless they are usable by the Torch. Same thing goes for the PB. that has been happening since 3.0

I have the 9800... and can see all the apps. They say not available for this device but I need to sort through them. It's a real PITA. If it knows it isn't the right device, it shouldn't show them. Glad to hear it at least works on the 9810.

I am glad to have the ability to delete all my old outdated apps first before I re-install all my apps at once...

I'll third that myself... found it to be such a pain to not be able to remove crap I'd never use again. The hide option though was a nice addition, but still rather delete.

I like most of the improvements, but why did they remove "Gifts"
I use that quite a bit to send Apps to my parents that I think they will like on their phones :(

Anyone else failed to receive keycode , also they appear to have changed things before it was easy to rerequest keycodes I deleted and tried for 3rd time and finally I got my keycode

Don't know who as installed so for, as soon as keycode was entered, and first run, it required an update for BBID, and another restart. Other than that all seems to be good.

So happy I have deleted 240 apps over 150 off which I had no interest after trying and they've now gone thank you bb n betazone

I received a keycode just as always and entered it as always and all is always...

Glad it was al good for you see if u check betazone comments they are apologising for failure to send keycodes

Yeeeees! Finally i will be able to delete the crap from My World. I have really waited for years this feature to come. Thank you RIM!
