BBW still dead - Loss of sales...

You may not all realize this but BB Appworld has npw been down for at least a week

 

Personally I noticed the problem when I got my Dev Alpha C upgrade to 10.1.0.1483 (it worked before then)

 

I assumed that it was a temp problem - seems not

 

If you're getting any cash from your apps - not this week, my friends

 

There is no informtion comaing out of BB over this which I find to be highly frustrating

[ Edited ]

It hasn't been down a week. It was fixed last Thursday. It was actually "down" about 24 hours, and only for users of the Z10. It didn't affect any BBOS legacy devices.

 

And @BlackBerry and @BlackBerryHelp was all over it for two days letting users know what the workaround was and when it was finally settled and completed.

Re: BBW still dead - Loss of sales...

Dev Alpha C is not a Z10...

 

So - we can only not sell to the people we've target our products to

 

Anyone without a BB10 device can buy any of the 100k apps we didn't write?

 

Thanks for the clarification

Apologies - addendum

 

It's still broken in EMEA (I'm guessing all of it)

 

I'm UK

Re: BBW still dead - Loss of sales...

Me and my girlfriend are also felling this loss starting a week ago. Sales for both of us on BB10 went down severly, by more than 50%, I can't really explain this. I thought maybe this was something natural, but when I see your post it makes me think otherwise..

Re: BBW still dead - Loss of sales...

That's odd

 

Both my Z10 + Dev Alpha C disagree with you

 

So - it's not broken in the UK - only my devices having tried on both WiFi and Cell?

 

I must have the worst luck in the world...

Re: BBW still dead - Loss of sales...

I am NOT trying to be a smart a$$, but the solution has been posted in this forum hundreds of times since the middle of last week.

 

  • On your Z10, go to your Music or Games icon.
  • Tap the lower right three dots overflow icon and touch BlackBerry World.
  • Now, BlackBerryWorld should start for you.


And here here is the KB on the issue:

KB34132 - BlackBerry World displays a spinning circle and does not load content on the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone  http://bbry.lv/11qtvdt
