Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
Clearing the application cache may help:
1. Open App World
2. Go to My World
3a. For keyboard-based BB's -- Hold down the ALT key and then press, in sequence R, then S, then T
3b. For Storm/Pearl -- Hold the num-lock (!?123) button so it locks and then press, in sequence 3, then 4, then (
4a. If your BB locks after issuing the cache clear, perform a battery pull reboot
Hopefully it'll work for you! Good luck and let us know!

I tried this but it did not help..
Whenever I load app world, it just shows the loading bar and nothing happens. I have performed a battery pull reset and that also does not help.
I once uninstalled and reinstalled the appworld and it worked once. After that it stopped working again. This has been happening for the past 2 weeks and I really cannot access any apps. Someone please help me fix this issue.
Sorry forgot to add this details:
Phone Model: Blackberry Curve 8520
Carrier: Bharti Airtel, Karnataka, India
OS: 184.108.40.2062 (Platform 220.127.116.11)
App world Version: 18.104.22.168 (All permissions set to allow)
I am not sure if I am on BIS or BES but it is a corporate connection so I think it is BES.
Please let me know if more information is required.

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
If you indeed are on BES, then you need to check with your BES admins -- they may well be blocking access to AppWorld.
Otherwise, you can try these steps:
1) Remove AppWorld from your BB (Homescreen > Options > Advanced Options > Applications) -- if it requests that you reboot the BB, do so.
2) Do a Batt-Pull reboot (power ON, remove battery, wait, insert battery, reboot)
3) Get a new link and install a fresh copy of AppWorld
4) Do another Batt-Pull reboot
5) See if it now works.

Thanks for your reply. I've already tried it but it did not help. As I mentioned, deleting and reinstalling the application made the app world work once but then it stopped working again after that..
I've checked with our BES admins and they say that it is not blocked. My colleague with a BB Bold can access the app world fine so I'm not sure if it is a BES issue.
Any thing else I can try or get more information?
Thanks for your help

Hmmm...odd. Well, all I can think is that you have something else on your BB that is somehow causing AppWorld to malfunction...but figuring that out is a tedious process at best. You have 2 paths...
1) Re-install your device OS from scratch, removing all 3rd party apps in the process. Install AppWorld. If it works, start adding apps one at a time...as soon as AppWorld malfunctions, you know your culprit.
2) Start removing your 3rd party apps one at a time. As soon as AppWorld starts to function, you have your culprit.
I'm not sure what else to advice...it's a slow and careful diagnostic process to be carried out to try and find a configuration that works, then determine what in the current configuration is preventing functionality.
Good luck and let us know!

Ouch.. That indeed will be a slow and painful process. I'll try the second method first and see if that helps or go all out, delete the OS and then try method 1.
Will update the thread once I have more information.
