The My World view on my BB 9530 is not showing the apps I have installed accuratly. Most are correct but it is showing Ambiance and Role Call Tasks as being Uninstalled, when in fact, they are on my phone and working fine.
Not sure if this will be a problem for me at some point, but I wanted to mention it.

Sometimes, if you install an update to an app via the app itself (as opposed to via AppWorld), AppWorld will lose track of the app and think that it's uninstalled. That's what is shows for one of my free apps (SnapTu) -- I updated the app via the app interface and AppWorld then thought I'd uninstalled the app. Not an issue in my case since the app developer is releasing the updates directly. If your apps are free, then there'd be no issues...if they are paid, then there could be an issue...

I have the same issue on my new 9700. I'm not sure why it happens but I have a work-around:

Strange and creepy, but yes that accomplishes what it says! However, rather than pressing "install", you are selecting the app from your MyWorld list and then selecting "Reinstall". And, in my case, rather than prompting me to overlay with the same version, it is asking if I want to replace my installed newer version with the older version that AppWorld is delivering. I then say no to that. Then, within AppWorld, when I then look at MyWorld and at that App, it shows my newer version as being installed, yet shows the older version as being the current version (since apparently AppWorld still has yet to get this update from Snaptu).

I have almost given up on My World keeping track of what is shown as installed/uninstalled/archived. It shows QuickLaunch as archived when it is installed, it shows two versions of Nintaii, etc.,. Anymore I don't care so long as what I paid for I have and that it works.
I always save the emails I get upon payment and have put off until there is a problem getting frustrated with BB App World. I have enough stressors at the present time in my life. Life is simply too short.
Part of the problem is with the developers insuring that App World is updated with the latest version of their apps and the process by which My World is updated internally to App World to reflect the upgrades that you download and install.
