No app in App World?



I went to download the spoofAPP by going to its mobile site. I thought it would redirect me to BlackBerry App World, but instead it offered a direct download from it's own site.


I canceled the download and tried to download it from BlackBerry App World (my belief is that if I download all apps from App World, it will make things easier later if I switch phones). However, I couldn't find spoofAPP in App World. I thought all apps that were compatible were BlackBerry were also available in the App World. Is this not the case?

Re: No app in App World?


No, it is not the case. AppWorld contains apps that the developers have registered with RIM (for which they pay fees). But, developers can have apps for BBs that are completely outside of AW.

Good luck!
