Re: App World Updated Design

my hope is that only the reviews you got for that particualr device shows up.

eg. if i have the 9900 i only want to see reviews from ppl who gave them from a 9900.

 

Having a **bleep** load of reviews good or bad from 8900 does not help me pick that app.

Re: App World Updated Design

It's incomprehensible that after doing a search, you cannot select to see either Free or Paid apps -- just whatever they want to show you.

 

You'd never know this is the Nth generation of App World with 4 years of experience behind them.

 

Oh, sorry, it's the 1st generation of BlackBerry World.  That explains it.  Developed by a new team of low-wage interns with no prior experience developing app stores.  A first-cut solution.

 

But it will be alright after a future update.  Like the PlayBook, and the Storm.

Re: App World Updated Design

Regardless of how you sort the categories (name, vendor) it always displays "New Releases".

 

Definitely these 2 are completely useless. The ratings need to be displayed in the app list, popularity needs to be brought back as its actually a good way to find popular apps.

 

One step forward, and 2 steps back with this update.

Re: App World Updated Design

I opened BBWorld on my DevAlphaB and can't see anymore New Arrivals, only Top Free, Paid, Grossing. Where is it hidden?

Re: App World Updated Design

Same here. It's not "hidden" anywhere...it's gone

 

Lets all just close our eyes and open them again on Jan 30th. I'm sure everything will be fixed by them :robotsad:

Re: App World Updated Design

This isn't just another app, it's a sales channel that thousands of people depend on.  Every time they foul it up they foul up thousands of people.  And it's not the first time.  There should have been an open beta test before it went live.

Re: App World Updated Design

 Maybe devs are removing the alpah dev device from their apps?

Beta at best, certainly not ready for prime time.

Re: App World Updated Design

Btw in Vendor Portal reviews there are three sections now: BBOS, BB10, PlayBook. So now you can get the review per OS release
