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

I have a 9650 6.0 Bundle 1741 (v6.0.0.431, platform 4.4.0.315) and made the mistake of upgrading App World to version 2.1.2.19. Installing OS 5 would be a downgrade for me, as none of the various other solutions has worked. Truth be told, version 6 sux because they messed with the interface and as a result, finding things in Options is no longer an easy task.

Here's what worked for me. I went to this website via my Blackberry's browser, and downloaded/installed and got my App World icon back: http://mobile.blackberry.com

if you switch from OS5 to OS6, you can simply use the universal search and type in the name of your option to find it. No more going through 4 screens to get to the option you want.

I got a new download available message for App World and downloaded it earlier this morning. The handset restarted but the app can't be found on the set at all. Next I went to the website and did a USB download direct to the handset. Same restart but the app is still no where to be found. I can't believe I am the only one that is having this problem.

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

Just opened BDM and checked my applications list. The list shows the new version of AW so why can't it be found on the handset?

I tried that first thing but it refused to download from that site. That's when I went to the BDM

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

hi everyone

 

I'm having the same problem. I just bought a blackberry curve 9300 a few days ago. I then received an update notice yesterday from my mobile asking if I wanted to update App world to the latest version. I chose to update, but after the update was finished, the App world icon disappeared.

 

I tried reinstalling from the mobile via the browser, and also tried connecting the mobile to my desktop and reinstall App world, but both didn't help in bringing back the icon

 

Please can anyone help?
