Re: App World : availability by country

95% of all the free apps available on the AppWorld are also available at the other shops I named in my previous message, and for free. And those other shops are available everywhere BlackBerry is available. Including Lebanon.

 

Remember that back 3 years ago, AppWorld did not exist. This did not prevent BlackBerry users to download thousands of applications (paid or free).

Re: App World : availability by country

i think its better idea when you allow download for international users !,, at least you can upload them for directory !

this blackberry official site and not local shop to ask us to download from another sites

Re: App World : availability by country

I guess BB is being unfair and making it very complicated. App world is one of the most prominent features of BB service. In my country I have to pay a premium to use BB service but unfortunately we don't get to use the app world feature since it is not available.

Re: App World : availability by country

@th3skunk

it's not RIM that is making things difficult. It is the governments that want to review all the applications available on AppWorld to forbid some of them.
Did you notice that the countries where AppWorld is not available are countries where liberty of speech especially on the internet is not full.

The problem is endless if those governments do not have enough people to do it, and review every day less applications than the number of new apps.

Re: App World : availability by country

@bnsrasitha

most software editors publish their apps on AppWorld as well as other application shops like Mobihand, Handango. Those application shops can be used from Sri Lanka. But if the editor only publishes the application on AppWorld, since AppWorld is partly controlled by local governments, you can't until the Sri Lanka government has finished reviewing all the apps on AppWorld to decide which ones to ban. Contact your carrier to have more information.

Re: App World : availability by country

Actually that is not true.

My country is the member of EU, with all the freedoms and bla bla bla. And we have BB service for few years and two carriers who support it... and still we do not have the App World.

 

That's actually is an awfull strategy by RIM.

Re: App World : availability by country

@yessuz : what is your country?
Being in the EU does not mean you have all the freedom, especially in eastern Europe...
