Hello - I have downloaded Blackberry Apps World and ever...

Hello - I have downloaded Blackberry Apps World and every time I open this it loads, then the screen freezes at the home page and I have to do a soft re-set. I have downloaded this a few times and this happens every time. Also I have the new 8900 curve and meet all the system requirements. Your help you be appreciated. Kind Regards

Re: Hello - I have downloaded Blackberry Apps World and ever...



Typically, the first time you launch AppWorld as well as the first time you go into a category, there is a lot of data that needs to download. Patience is key. I found that waiting at least 5 minutes for each category to fully load helped make subsequent usage smoother and faster...but the first time was very very slow. That's just the way it presently works.


If that does not help, then please return to these forums (http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/) and register an account so that we can provide you with direct assistance.
