Re: No App World icon exists after upgrading your App World application

The solution here refers to a problem with older versions of the Blackberry OS.  I am on a 9800 Torch with version 6 and having the same problem.  The system offered me an update of appworld, so i proceeded to download it.  It then told me that Appworld is not available in my country (which is not true as i am in the UK).  When I returned to my home screen the appworld app had disappeared.  After rebooting, it was still absent.  I tried to download it again and it downloaded OK, but after telling me that I already have the lates version installed on the device. I reinstalled it again and rebooted, but still no icon.  Any suggestions?

Re: No App World icon exists after upgrading your App World application

I just ran into the same issue on my Torch9810, running OS 7.1

I upgraded appworld and now the icon is gone.

I've un-installed and re-installed the app numerous times, with no success. 

When I download and install it, the following error appears: "Uncaught exception: no application instance", followed by "The application was successfully installed".

It shows under installed applications, but the icon won't return.

Re: No App World icon exists after upgrading your App World application

My problem was finally solved when I redownloaded the app via my home wifi connection. For some reason this seemed to finally work.

Re: No App World icon exists after upgrading your App World application

Well I know sooner posted this, and RIM has created a new version.

The new one is 4.0.0.63.

I donwloaded it, installed it and everything is AOK.

 

The previous version, I believe it was 4.0.0.55 wasn't compatable with my device.

Then Twitter for BB and icon didn't show on my homescreen, and lastly App World and of course it too didn't show. Ii don't understand why because I use OS6 I should not be having these probllems. My everything is "up to date". Please help.

Have you tried the suggestions posted above?

 

I'll post again:

 

  • 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.
