App World Slow - Hourglass Won't Go Away

Several times that I've gone into the BlackBerry App World on Curve 8330 and while searching within categories the hourglass will pop up and often stay there for a very long time, sometimes to the point where I'll turn off the device just to be able to use it again. (I have an 8GB SD card.) Anyone else having this problem? Anyone have suggestions for how to resolve this? Thanks

Re: App World Slow - Hourglass Won't Go Away

AppWorld attempts to cache all of the data for the catagory you enter...and it does appear to slow down horribly, but it is trying to get all the data for everything in that category. If you wait it out, it'll complete and you'll be able to browse the category cleanly.

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!
