The Desktop version of BB App World??

A couple of days ago I dowloaded the BB Appworld successfully into my BB Bold.

 

Today, I thought I would download the "desktop" version directly into my phone.  But all the intructions are geared toward loading the BB App store into my phone.

 

Is there a desktop version??   The setup instructions only seem to lead me to reinstalling the BB App World on my phone again.

 

I am so confused.  Please help!

 

Thanks.

Thank Alex.  Is this a Desktop version of this application something that we can expect from RIM in the near/distant future?

Regardless of the way in which App World is downloaded, is there a way to have it store applications on the SD Card? This is critical as I have had to uninstall App World myself because of a lack of space on my 8310.

 

Thanks

Re: The Desktop version of BB App World??

There is no way of installing apps or saving app to the SD card. I read it somewhere on the BB site. So, to answer your question... Nope. You can't. Not right now.. Perhaps in a future version.
Oh. I can't SSH into Blackberry devices? CYA!!!!
