Lost my AppWorld

Yesterday I was prompted by AppWorld and upgraded to AppWorld 4.0.0.63 (the newest version). I rebooted my device (Style 9670, current software) as instructed. Since then, I cannot find Appworld. I've checked all my folders and used universal search unsuccessfully. However, if I try to download it again, the device tells me I already have that version and asks if I want to replace it. I've replaced it, and didn't replace it on 2 different attempts to download it again... What happened and how can I fix it????

Re: Lost my AppWorld

This has worked for some users.

  • Go to Options > Advanced > Applications and scroll the AppWorld application and don't click on it, just scroll to it. Click Menu > Delete and remove the application.
  • Now, do a reboot: With the BlackBerry device powered ON, remove the battery a few seconds and then reinsert the battery to reboot.
  • Finally, use your BlackBerry browser to go to www.blackberry.com/appworld and download/install the AppWorld application again.
  • After installation and possibly another reboot, check your homescreen or another folder, or Downloads folder for the application.

Re: Lost my AppWorld

Thanks for the reply... I tried exactly what you suggested, but I still have the same problem. I can't find it anywhere, but if I try to download it again, it'll tell me it's already installed

Re: Lost my AppWorld

The current workaround appears to be to downgrade your AppWorld client to version 4.0.0.55. This can be done by visiting the following link in your browser
