Re: App World not compatible with 8705g phone

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!


Well, you could try by-passing AppWorld...it is merely a portal and storefront for apps developed by others...so if you were to search for the app you want, you might just come across a different storefront from which you could obtain it.


Good luck!

Re: App World not compatible with 8705g phone

I have searched BB website and can't find anything on a pc version of App World.  There is something called Application Center that they keep referring to but I can't locate it either.  Do you how I can get a pc version?

JSanders is wrong : the web AppWorld only allows you to send an email that will link to AppWorld on your device. Since your device is not compatible with AppWorld, it will not work.

You can install applications on your trackwheel device, but not using AppWorld. You can use other application shops, like BPlay, Mobihand, Handango or getJAR.
