After I upgraded my Bold 9650 to OS Version 6. AppWorld displayed most of my apps as "Uninstalled" (even though they remained active on my phone).
Many of those Apps have long ago been upgraded ... but when I attempt to upgrade them on AppWorld, AppWorld will ALWAYS simply reinstall the OLD version.
I have attempted upgrades to these Apps MANY, MANY, MANY times-&-ways including first deleting the Apps, Etc., Etc., to Huge Frustration with never a scintilla of success. In a few cases, I have also tried simply re-purchasing the apps as they are quite important to me; and this too flatly Fails.
Does anyone have an idea of how I can, once again, upgrade my apps on AppWorld?
Thank you very much for any assistance!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Step 1 -- make sure you are on the current version of AppWorld itself (184.108.40.206):
If not, then 1) remove it (KB above) and 2) re-obtain it...via your BB Browser, go here:
If it is, then proceed...
Step 2 -- clear the AppWorld application cache:
1. Open App World
2. Go to My World
3. Follow one (and only one!) of these steps:
3a. For keyboard-based BB's -- Hold down the ALT key and then press, in sequence R, then S, then T
3b. For Touch Screen Only BBs -- Hold the num-lock (!?123) button so it locks and then press, in sequence 3, then 4, then (
3c. For newer (e,g., OS6 and 7) BB's, see this KB:
4. AppWorld should close.
5. If your BB locks after issuing the cache clear, perform a battery pull reboot
6. Return to AppWorld/MyWorld (it may be sluggish while it re-synchronizes).
If step (4) does not happen as listed, then the clear cache did not work.
Hopefully it'll work for you! Good luck and let us know!
