App World Not Available in Your Country....

'Blackberry App world is not currently available in your country, Please check blackberry.com/appworld for updates.' - Whenever I try to access to blackberry app world I get a pop-up saying what I have written previous. I am from the yemen and have been using App World previously, the last time I used it was about an hour ago so it is only a recent problem. I have updated to the latest software not too long ago, I have reinstalled App world and still no joy. I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to what is happening?

Thanks in Advance,

Re: App World Not Available in Your Country....

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Please check this page to ensure you meet the minimum requirements (including if it is available in your country):

I do not see Yemen listed as an available country for BBWorld...which begs the curiosity as to how you were able to previously use it. Perhaps the prior version of it you were using was certified for your country, but now your country has dropped from the list


It's actually impossible for anyone here, in this user-to-user community, to know for sure the answers to any of these questions. All we can know is that Yemen is not listed as an available country, and hence cannot be expected to function for you. We cannot know if it was previously listed but has been dropped, why that may have happened if it did, nor why you were able to previously use it. All we can know is that you cannot expect it to function based on the information we have available.


Do of course be aware that AppWorld is merely a portal, vending apps developed mainly by others. As such, it is not usually your exclusive procurement source -- there are others that you can try:

  • AppWorld in selected countries
  • MobiHand everywhere in the world
  • Handango everywhere in the world
  • BPlay everywhere in the world
  • GetJAR everywhere in the world

I have found that there are very few apps that are exclusive to AppWorld. You can search the on-line catalog and then search out other procurement sources, including quite often the developer website itself.

Lastly, do understand that BlackBerry does not have unilateral control over the availability of AppWorld. They have to ensure that they and their partners meet local laws and legislation for operating an e-commerce system -- and that can take time, especially given the necessary governmental involvement of each jurisdiction.

Good luck!
