I have dowloaded three applications onto my Playbook, from Blackberry Appworld, but I do not have any of these icons on my homescreen to enable me to run them.

 

How can I run these applications?

Doing a restart would be a wise first step before calling for help, either from support or forums.

Re: Downloaded Apps

I purchased a Playbook this weekend and downloaded a couple of apps. They appeared in 'My World', but no icons were displayed on my screen.

I re-booted the machine and they still did not appear.

Is there anything else i could try to get the apps to work?

 

Many thanks

tonyhg
