Find installed apps in Playbook

Hello, Is there a way to look up the already installed apps in the playbook, a search function of sort? Thanks Zak

Apps installed from App World are listed in that app under My World. However, if by "the already installed apps" you mean apps installed by a developer (e.g., you) then you can try running blackberry-deploy with the -listInstalledApps parameter (type blackberry-deploy and hit return to see options); or, if you prefer a Windows GUI interface rather than a terminal window, you can try App Fork.

Thanks Icocea,

 

What I am lookink for is actually a way to find and launch the apps through a search box (Like the one in the i-devices); Type the app name and click to launch.

Currently if your have say 400 apps on your playbook and looking for a specific app to launch, you'll have to screen through all the apps and folders until the desired app is found.

 

Thanks
