BlackBerry App World has received another official update and is now available for download. This version has been in the Beta Zone for a few weeks and comes in the form of 126.96.36.199. Some new features in this go including:
- In-app Payments - App World 2.1 includes support for in-app payments. How does this change the way you interact with certain paid applications as a developer or as a consumer?
- Filtered Featured Items - Once you open this latest version of App World, you'll notice that Featured Items are seemingly more relevant to you. Well, we decided to change this functionality based on the feedback we received from you during the App World 2.0 Beta Program. Featured Items are now filtered by carrier and country to ensure that you are presented with the most relevant apps as soon as you open App World.
- Extended BBID Login Session - We heard what you had to say during the App World 2.0 Beta Program last summer and decided to make some changes to the BBID functionality in App World. With this latest release, a single BBID login session lasts for 20 minutes, making it easier for you to download and install as many apps as you'd like in one go. Please remember that during the 20 minute BBID login session, you will not be prompted again for your BlackBerry ID to complete a purchase. If your BlackBerry smartphone gets in the hands of someone else, they could make a purchase that you're not aware of.
