Hi guys, its an early start an i awoke to the news of the news of the much anticipated Blackberry App World.
The application is a welcomed move by RIM to give its crowd something to compare to that ‘dreaded’ itunes! Although i must admit, it still has some way to go!
The App World homescreen features four icons across the bottom and “Featured Items” which can be navigated through by scrolling left or right. The first icon – a set of folders with a blue tab – is your Categories folder where you can search for apps by genres such as Games, Music and Video, or Personal Health and Wellness. Next to the Categories icon is the Top Downloads section – denoted by a yellow starred folder. You can also search for applications by clicking on the magnifying glass icon; search works within categories as well.
There are also some issues that have been flagged up already about the limitations of the blackberry handsets themselves as well as some functional aspects of how apps are updated etc. but more to come…
