AppWorld will not launch

I recently updated Blackberry AppWorld to the newest version, but now it refuses to launch. I've uninstalled and reinstalled repeatedly. It is frustrating because I know I have other apps that need updating...

Re: AppWorld will not launch

Hello meiri

 

Welcome to the Community 

 

Sorry to hear what happened to the Blackberry App World. This has been an issue with it. Is there an error message that pops up when you access the app?

No error message. When I'm on my home screen and hold the BlackBerry button, AppWorld shows up in my open apps, but there is *nothing*.

Re: AppWorld will not launch

Please restart the phone by removing and placing the battery back while the device is ON. This process fixes the application modules in it without losing any data stored. Let us know if you still experience the issue after this.

Re: AppWorld will not launch

When I do that, it removes AppWorld from the open Apps list, but does not help me launch it. This is the fifth time I've tried installing since the last update, and each previous install I've tried launching two or three times.

Re: AppWorld will not launch

Is the Blackberry App World icon missing or it's there but does not allow you to open it?

The icon is there, but when I tap it, nothing happens, except for the icon showing up in the open apps list.

Re: AppWorld will not launch

Actually, now the AppWorld app is open all the time with my latest uninstall/reinstall attempt. Always running, never launching.

Well, that explains my exceptionally high battery use lately.

Hi Meiri. Does no-one have the answer to this then? I too have exactly same problem. Very annoying.

I think we'll have to wait for the next AppWorld update, Twiglets. Smiley Sad
