Trouble with App world

Has anyone else experience app world lags when trying to search or connect?  My storm remained on the loading screen for more than 10 minutes.  I really wish rim and/or blackberry would develop some web portal that one can access using a pc to browse the current apps.  It take too much time and really is not worth searching on the phone.  Previously when I used the Iphone it was so much easier browsing for applications and the purchase was a sinch.  It is not the same with blackberry and it should be improved.

Re: Trouble with App world

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!

 

Yes, AppWorld is terribly slow the first time you open a category. It seems to download everything about the category -- I notice that, if I am patient and let it complete, the next time I enter that category it will be much faster...so it seems to be caching everything, which takes time to download that first time.

 

At present, there is no web-based portal...AppWorld is designed to be run from the device and present apps which are compatible only with your device...there would be no way for it to do that if not run from the device itself. As to if anything will change in the future, no one can say.

 

Good luck!
