App World URLs fail in App World 2.0

I noticed that a lot of App World URLs fail in App World as of 2.0 - this became extremely evident when every URL I sent people would come up with "This item is not supported by your current device profile" even though I knew it was.

 

I figured out the problem, any App World URL with anything after the number gets this error:

 

http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/86915

(this one will work)

 

http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/86915/

(this one will not work)

 

Extremely annoying bug, and messes up a lot of pre-existing links that I can't change (such as those on blog posts)

Thanks for the investigation!  I'll pass that along.

Thanks Michael.

To demonstrate how bad this error is: search Bing for my app and the URL Bing uses doesn't work (it has the / at the end)
