Blackberry app world

Hi, the app world is on my phone and playbook is not the same.  All the downloads I have on my phone is not showing on my playbook, but everything else is perfect?  I also cannot access app world on my playbook without wi-fi?  Tethering is also not working. Help!

You need wifi (Internet connection) to reach App World.

Re: Blackberry app world

Always, because the info within App World is on line, not on your playbook...phone and PB are two separate devices, same as two computers in your house..what you download on one doesn't appear on the other

Re: Blackberry app world

...plus the phone and the playbook run different operating systems so some apps that run on your curve will not even run on your playbook. And vice versa.

BB World will only display the apps that will work on the device in question when accessing BB world from a BB device.  The display is automatic when accessing the BB store for each device.

 

If, perchance, you access the store directly from a link from some business that has an app in the BB store for their particular service, the link will open up on all devices, but if that app will not work on the device in question, a message is displayed that says the app will on work on that particular device.
