BlackBerry World Updates

The BlackBerry 10 app updates are rolling out at full force, and we've already seen quite a few for both native and third-party apps.

Developers are listening to feedback and cranking the updates out at a furious pace. You may be asking yourself, Why haven't I seen any of these updates?

Currently as we publish this article, BlackBerry World doesn't push down notifications for these updates, so you unfortunately have to check for them manually in BlackBerry World.

Consider this a bug - you should get notifications for app updates, and BlackBerry is working to get this tweaked up. In the meantime, you can always check for app updates manually in BlackBerry World.

Doing so isn't difficult however and it's actually part of my daily routine (I love app updates!).

So if you're curious as to how to check for yourself, keep reading and we'll fill you in!

  • Tap the BlackBerry World icon
  • Swipe left to reveal the navigation tab
  • Tap My World
  • Tap My Apps & Games
BlackBerry World  BlackBerry World
  • Tap the overflow icon (3 dots), then Check for Updates
BlackBerry World

BlackBerry World will check for updates in the background for all of your games and apps. You will receive update check complete message -- If anything is found, you'll then see an option to download the update -- or if you have more than one available you can just update all.

You'll notice that you receive an update notification after checking, so you can now just dismiss those and carry on with your day. Happy updating!
