Today BlackBerry App World vendors/developers are getting notified that the vendor portal (site where developers login to manage all of their apps) has been updated to version 2.0. The update brings some slight changes on the backend of things, but nothing "visible" on the consumer end just yet. Updates for vendors include a new vendor credit system, change request management and enhanced application language management. This is a good sign overall for consumers as well however. With the new upgrade we can assume hope that "BlackBerry App World 2.0" may be popping up on devices soon. WES is just a short week away (give or take a few days) and would be the opportune time to announce or even launch an updated version. So while there is nothing new on the front at this point, fingers crossed for a bigger, badder App World in the coming weeks. Vendors can access the new portal from appworld.blackberry.com/isvportal

Iam not a vendor I am a buyer but everytime I try to buy from app world get paypal errors so always have to purchase apps elsewhere. No way to contact app world for buyers so maybe vendors can alert app world about problem. App world forum area has no answer but plenty of complaints. I only use app world to browse then buy from other source.

Seems there's no way anymore for vendors to contact them either. The old contact address turned into an autoresponder, and now the new contact address has also turned into an autoresponder. I sent some requests and got no replies except solicitations to pay per support incident. 95% of support requests are not even vendor related, they're store related -- people often just can't download, whether it's to restore the app, update, or buy it. I know it's frustrating for customers, but we can't contact them either and don't even have a practical way to verify an order. We can't search by name, email, or order #.

I hope to hell Rim has allot more to offer us next week then a new and improved App World. Where the hell is the new 6.0.... OS with flash support? If Rim doesn't put a little bug up their butt they will continue to loose the new customer. Being able to buy and use all BB devices from all carriers. It bugs the hell out of me that you can only use certain BB device with a certain carrier. That is complete bull crap IMO. Snap out of it Rim.
