Will 9800 Apps work on 9810?

I'm trying to use a point of sale device that works on the old 9800, but the app is not listed for the 9810.  I've put in a message to the vendor to see if they are going to update their software for the new device.


In the meantime, I thought I'd check here to see if anyone knows if 9800 apps should have no problems working on a 9810.


Also, is there a way for me to force the software onto my 9810?  Maybe I can get it to work if I can just get it to load.  The app store won't even let me try.

Re: Will 9800 Apps work on 9810?

Which apps will work on which phones is completely up to the app developers.  If an app is compatible with both OS 6 and OS 7, it will work on both models of Torch.  It's in the best interest of each app developer to update the app to achieve maximum compatibility, but again that's up to each individual developer.  If an app is not listed as being compatible with OS 7, it will not work on the Torch 9810 and there's nothing you can do to "force" it on to the phone.



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy
