I would like to see an "Update All" button in App World so that if there are more than one app that needs updating, I only have to click the Update All button and they would all be downloaded and installed.

I would also like to not have to reboot after each download and install.

My main suggestion to improve App World would be to feature different Apps Daily instead of weekly. As it is right now you need to search to find out some apps even exist. It would bolster more downloads if people knew some of the stuff actually existed without having to search for them. Change the categories to Most downloaded, Top rated, Top free, Newly Updated, at the bottom and feature different Apps daily to show the spectrum of availablity.

Change the god aweful background colour. As all apps are different, they need to be showcased on a neutral canvas. A glossy black would fit BB's marketing, but a whitebavkground would make those apps more appealing. Also, some refinement work on the icons could help too. They all look like they're from a win98 application folder. A little system wide shading could help clean up and bring them into the appearance of the 21st century and help with giving these apps an identity of belonging to a reputable app community.

I know this seem trivial, but anyone who's ever worked in tge food industry knows that presentation is more imortant than taste. I think the same appoints here.

Also, the organization of the apps departments seems chaotic. Hard to find useful apps without a long journey 'shopping'. Which I loathe. I'd like to find the app I need, like heading to the supermarket and know which section the condoms are in...
