Missing Apps

Where are they? I download Apps from BB World. But where are they on my Playbook. I don't appear to have an app list (like Android). The Search function online is totally pointless. What the hell????? 

 

Oh and while I'm in a suicidal mood - is there an App which shows my Word docs in a neat, searchable folder system as in MS Office? Not just a long list of 300 files.

 

Oh - and why is there no search button on the playbook screen?

 

You don't have long to reply, I'm going to shoot myself.

Re: Missing Apps

Apps will be at bottom of home page. Scroll!

 

Install AIR Browser or Files and Folders

 

If you wanted a browser with search on screen, install Origami Browser

The screen you see when you first turn it on, with all the app icons.

 

Touch the screen between the icons and slide your finger up. The icons will move up showing more icons. Your new apps will be at the bottom.

Re: Missing Apps

I'm still here. Sarah you saved my life. Most software turns me from a calm poet into a raging banshee. So I appreciate your short and sweet, direct and to the point response very much. Thank you. Wander with your Mother Teresa halo and do more good in the bleak IT wilderness. 

 

Best, Michael

 

P.S. Are you really that dangerous looking black lady in the Avatar?
