Blackberry Torch and OS 6 apps

Couple of things:

1. Not sure why OS 6 was released if all apps were not OS 6 compatible.  I used the following religiously on my Bold 900:

Pandora

Shazam

ScoreMobile

Quick Launch

AT&T Code Scanner

Dictionary

eBay

LinkedIn

Scanner Radio

These are not compatible with OS 6 I guess because on my Torch they are in the 'Unavailable' section of 'My World' in AppWorld.

 

2. Also, do I have to create a Blackberry ID when I can log into my PayPal account thru AppWorld? 

 

3. And there was a version 4.04 of QuickPull and I was having trouble with it and when I uninstalled it, I can't reinstall it because in AppWorld it only has version 4.03.  I tried getting 4.04 from the Steelhorn site, but they don't even list it as 4.04 only 4.03.  How do I get this app back?

 

4. Can't get my purchased version of WhatsApp to work either.  It says its compatible but it won't finish the 'connecting' part.

 

Will post more questions as they arise.  Thanks for your help!

Re: Blackberry Torch and OS 6 apps

1. Errr... because there are thousands of apps out there. I'm glad RIM does not get held hostage by the hundreds of developes out there making apps.

 

2. Yep, If you want to use the new AppWorld login.

 

3. Did you make a backup of the 4.04 version?

 

4. Not sure here... I'd say delete and reinstall, doing a powered on battery pull in between.

Re: Blackberry Torch and OS 6 apps

Ok, I agree there are thousands of apps out there in appworld 2, but how do i know which ones are compatible with the torch or os6?  Does the new desktop manager software have a way of telling you which ones are compatible or an interface to app world?

 

I wanted to find out if it is neccessary to create a blackberry id OR just login to my PayPal account??

 

I have tried resinstalling WhatsApp...no workey.

 

Yes there is a backup.  I did not think of using that.  Thank you for the idea.
