On my phone (Z10) in the 'My world' hub on Blackberry World app. it is showing a "red star" I think this is an update icon but when I go into 'My World' apps nothing there needs to be updated? What am i missing!! thanks

Re: My World

When you are in my world, click on the overflow button( 3 vertical dots).. Click on Check for updates.. Then it should show you the apps that need updates.

Re: My World

Many have noticed frequent "phantom" notifications. The phantom ones usually don't show until you actually enter BBWorld...the homescreen icon remains with no red *, but inside, the MyWorld and other areas may show the phantom *. But you will find no updates to anything you have. It's an annoyance, and hopefully will be resolved soon.
