BlackBerry World updated to v5.0.0.120 in the BlackBerry Beta Zone

*UPDATE* - Got the change log - “Searching from the storefront, apps or games home screens will now return a search result group that contains just built for BlackBerry applications. The client also includes multiple bug fixes to improve performance!”

A odd little update is sitting in the BlackBerry Beta Zone app right now. We're not sure if it's showing for all users or what but it's certainly showing for some. It's an update to BlackBerry World that pushes it from v5.0.0.91 to v5.0.0.120. There's no change log or anything to accompany the update so if you're seeing it and decide to give it a go, let us know if you happen to spot anything new and improved. Right now, it's only available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone app so grab that if you haven't got it already.

Download the BlackBerry Beta Zone app



That is weird.

Posted via CB10


It's faster

Posted via CB10


I wonder why it would be in the Beta Zone if it doesn't have anything new. Apparently I'm only eligible for the BBOS BB World.


Same here.. no update for me

Posted via CB10


It is a later build so something will have changed :P.

Posted via CB10


I'm going to wait it out since there isn't anything major in the change log.

We all know what that means, 10.2.1, on its way soon.

Just updated, got compass and calculator updates

Posted via CB10

Johan Surya

Yeah me too..but always error downloading the compass

Posted via CB10

Johan Surya works now..must download one by one..

Posted via CB10


+ 1 I updated too and didn't see anything till I checked for updates. Update notes just say bug fixes and stability enhancements.


Compass and calculator updates are available regardless of BBW update. You can get them even with your current version of BBW


I got compass, calculator, iron man and angry birds spaces all at ones asking to update. They all downloaded at the same time. I like this kind of mornings

Posted via CB10

Michele Guzzini

The same here. Compass + Calculator

via my super Z10


Just downloaded it..... don't really see anything

Posted via CB10


I didn't get the BlackBerry world update but I've found an update for BlackBerry Calculator and the BlackBerry Compass


It's not in Blackberry World - read the article or even just the headline.


Realised that after. But I didn't see the Beta update either.


Beta Zone is a funny thing as the criteria who gets the beta downloads seems to be a mystery. I've been fortunate to get just about everything offered.


Same here, got the update. Dunno what changed tho

Posted via CB10


hmm.. see nothing.. just evernote ;/


I hope it fixed the "there was an error" message I have been witnessing recently when trying to download apps and games.

Posted via CB10


I think I have a bad news for you....
I never have had "error" message before I updated to v5.0.0.120.
Now I can see the update for Compass and Calculator, but as soon as I push update button, AppWorld starts to swear that there is and ERROR blah,blah,blah...


Nothing like that, pal.

Posted via CB10


yup, got same. app world swears that there is a connection error. but I was downloading minions rush update at that time! :)


I hit the error too, but exited and tried again with no issues

Posted via CB10


well good news for me, the error is now gone.

Jay Labuschagne

I stopped BlackBerry World in Settings --> App manager then rebooted the phone and app world came back to life. Been getting those pesky error messages as well...

Posted via CB10


I just downloaded it. Nothing stands out as being different inside though..

Posted via CB10


As soon as I updated.. I got a update pushed for BlackBerry Compass and Calculator :O

Posted via CB10


I got the compass and calculator update right after upgrading BlackBerry World as well, but they won't download.

Posted via CB10


I got the updates too even though I did not upgrade BBW. Both installed fine. If you're having issues downloading, try refreshing BBW in Settings, General.


For me it fixed my update tab where I had glitched apps that were not even installed on my device and that I could update..

Posted via CB10


Good to hear from. I've had Chain Dots and that Piggies game updates stuck. Update it, but it still shows as needing updating. I just un installed them for now.

Posted via CB10


Happened to be in the beta app and saw the update, so I installed it. I haven't noticed any changes so far. I just got the update notification email from Beta Info about one minute ago.


Updates for Evernote along with the other two here.

Posted via CB10


Will DL to check it out.

Posted via CB10


Same here. Compass and Calculator update. Will play around a bit and see if anything comes up


Nothing showing for me yet.


Maybe leading up to 10.2.1 apks, might be able to have them on BlackBerry World directly

update for ever note compass and calculator !


For me it loads faster. Haven't noticed anything else.

Posted via CB10


Yeah seems much faster now with this version.

Posted via CB10


Calculator and compass update for me too. Had a couple errors at first..not enough network coverage while I had plenty. Then not available for this device. All good after a couple of attempts.
Nothing else yet..

Posted via CB10


Was there always a changelog for updated apps? All apps (Angry Birds Space,Calculator and compass) show a reason for the update.

Posted via CB10


Great.. got an update for angry birds star wars, compass and calculator.

The calculator app now includes a tip calculator. Outstanding.

Posted via CB10


I'm pretty sure the tip calc has been there for least in leaks I have been running.



Upgraded about 10 mins ago. Feels richer and smother, maybe it's all in my head Lol!!
Got updates for Compass, Calculator, Evernote & SN Sportsnet.


"a search result group that contains just built for BlackBerry applications." Thats a great idea! I think this will actually be really nice, and useful.


Although I just noticed they put the section at the very bottom, would there really be any backlash if they put it at the top? Built for BlackBerry are supposed to be the best quality apps, seems reasonable to put the best apps at the top, no?

Posted via CB10


That's a big plus!

Loads quicker. Few bugs fixed. Nice update



Yeah, they might add more new things to the program as time goes on, but for now it's a pretty simple change.


Downloaded, only difference is speed. Much better now.

It's available in Tanzania thro airtel. Just downloaded

Seems a bit quicker but that's all I've noticed so far.


I also got an update for my calendar, compass and BBM.


Loads quicker.

Posted via my beloved Z10


Refresh now available under settings > general.

Posted via CB10


Got it in beta zone nothing new that I can notice

Posted via CB10 on my Zed10


Something has changed for the better.

I had purchased Shadowgun on my PlayBook but could not install on the Z10. The option to do so was there, but attempting to do so would display a message telling me I needed to purchase it, but with no purchase button, just a download button.

As of this beta, I tried to install Shadowgun again and now it seems to have cleared up the issue.

Posted via CB10


i cant get either blackberry world or beta zone to load up right now...


I just hope it fixes update pushes...rarely get app updates pushed to my z30 and when they do come they are very late. Shouldn't have to go into bbw every few days to check manually. I know some less tech savvy users NEVER update apps because they don't even know how to check for them. Ask them how they like Channels and I get a 'duh' blank look since they haven't updated bbm since buying their phone. I've taken their phones and checked manually and get a whack of 10-20 or more apps that need updates!

Posted via CB10


Yes! iOS apps get udates/notifications almost too often, while BlackBerry World I have usually had to manually check too. Definitely this needs to be fixed, if today's BBW update hasn't done so yet.



BTW, there was an update for BBM as well. It showed up after I installed this BlackBerry World beta.

Posted via CB10


There's not thing new to this update at all,,,

Posted via CB10


Got it. Haven't noticed anything though.

Posted via CB10 on my  Z10 


I don't have the update in my beta

Posted via CB10


It opens way faster now and the Video section is back on the main left menu.

Noticed that there is a staff picks section?

Way faster

Thanks for the updated info, Bla1ze. Though, I wonder if they've snuck in some client-side support for Android apk installs that could be uploaded to the BlackBerry World storefront from BlackBerry themselves on the server-side (assuming a legal agreement has been reached with Google?)

Just a thought... ;)


One thing that I just noticed which might be in the other versions is popular built for BlackBerry section. I have the beta installed.

Maybe there will be an android section coming.

I am on 10.2.1

Posted via CB10


Got calculator and compass updates.

Posted via CB10

Charles V

Finally! Installed new version, and all the falsely reported app updates are gone! ( apps displaying updates available, even though you update it a billion times - keeps on telling you it's available to update, and version numbers are the same).

Plus new calculator and compass.

Posted via CB10/Z10


It looks better and seems to load faster. The icons for apps seems to be brighter and bigger.

Posted via CB10


I got all 3 and downloaded nicely :). Don't see any changes in BlackBerry World?

Posted via CB10


Yep definitely seems brighter?

Posted via CB10


Seems faster to me (except for the "my world" part)

Posted via CB10


Much faster for sure! Seems a lot smoother. Updates are proper now.

Posted Via my Z-30


I'm not worthy. ):

Posted via CB10


Is removing available apps new to this? I know it wasn't an option a long time ago but it's there now and that makes me happy cause some apps I never want to download again but some I do so this will help me remember if it was any good

Posted via CB10 on ZED10


I updated and update all worked great with 4 apps at once, including compass and calculator. Still can't see any difference in the beta app world though.

Posted via CB10


It's fast and few fixed bugs.

Posted via CB10


I saw a new feature. Now with this beta release, the action bar has a "add bookmark" tab for apps that you have never downloaded before.

Posted via CB10


That's not new but it is good

All that I know, is that for me its very snappy, I've never experienced such fast load times and the thumbnails appear instantly. Also guys check out what happens when u click on a Google play link to an apk:p

:p :D

I suspect it's just bug fixes bcos I have upgraded and can't spot any noticeable changes

Posted via CB10


Dear Crankberry Forum

Am I getting the understanding that, many of you do not already have the OS update 10.2 as I have and I have had this for a good while, maybe about three to four months or more.

I am assuming that the updates that are collected in the BetaZone, are for testing and feedback on there function and features.

I believe I had installed a month or two now and had an update today for MockIt,
I do hope I was allowed to mention that, but I just wanted to say that the 10.2 OS update has been about for quite a while.

Good Luck Everyone

What is the meaning of beta zone??

Posted via CB10


Just got the update for blackberry world-seems much "snappier" and smoother -but no updates for compass and calculator yet.

Posted via CB10


Correct me if I'm wrong, but now you don't have to put the right spelling of an app which is a lot helpful!
It tells you what app you might be looking for.. Never seen that feature before.


Opens way faster, and everything loads quicker too.

no updates for me, no bbm, no bb world :( i want them to try out too. do i have to register somewhere?

Ben Frank

I actually had to go into the Beta App and then go to programs, where it showed BBWORLD BB10 under the Eligible tab. I joined then restarted the Beta App and the download was there. Just a heads up. No idea why I would have to join anything as I usually try to be apart of every Beta.

Posted via CB10


Someone download a movie maybe fixes the download speeds?

Posted via CB10


I have downloaded the new BlackBerry World from the beta app I'm not finding anything different yet everything seems to be the same unless I am missing something

Posted via CB10


Definitely faster.

Posted via CB10


I got it. It looks like reacting more fluently

Me?! I keep movin'!


For me the major change is, I can now browse BlackBerry World with proxy
