Keywords for searching App on Blackberry App World

How to provide keywords for searching an app on Blackberry App while uploading the app on App world?

So that users can search my app if they type any of the keywords specified and search my app on Blackberry App world.

 

Please suggest.

 

 

Thanks & Regards,

Ankur

I don't know but at least the search works on title of application and description.

This issue was resolved last night.  App World searches now include product descriptions.

Re: Keywords for searching App on Blackberry App World

What do we have to do to get it to work? If I search "map quest", I am not gettting Magellan Compass and it is the first couple of words in both the short and long description.

Re: Keywords for searching App on Blackberry App World

I searched for "map quest" on my PlayBook and Magellan Compass was the 5. result. If you search via the Web AppWorld you get nothing, probably it is not updated yet.

John, I'm seeing the same result you are.  I'm looking into what's going on here.
