Re: Sandbox and apps Pending Review

Apps just need to be in DRAFT mode. What device are you trying to do this on? It is a lot easier on BB10.

Re: Sandbox and apps Pending Review

I am trying to do it on a PlayBook.

 

So, it does Not work on apps in PendingReview status?

Too bad as a most of them are held in Limbo due to the port-a-thon.

 

I would still like to get it to work with Draft status apps though.

Re: Sandbox and apps Pending Review

It should work regardless.
You have to bring up App World. Select to give the view focus, bring up the keyboard and enter 'tst'. Leave App World open, open a browser, type in the full app world url and that should bring you back to App World for the download.

It worked for me last week.

Re: Sandbox and apps Pending Review

By full appworld url, do you mean inclding the app's ID?

 

When I do this, with a DRAFT status app, I get Eror;  App World is having trouble connecting to server.

 

i have no trouble accessing App World otherwise.

Again, this is using the app's ID as the content:

 

/webstore/content/XXXXXXXXX

Re: Sandbox and apps Pending Review

Yes, using those instructions and that URL, with my Draft app, I get that error.

BlackBerry App World is having trouble connecting to the BlackBerry App World server. Verify your network connections and try again.

 

However, doing a search in App World works just fine. Not for my Draft app of course.

Re: Sandbox and apps Pending Review

It turns out my case was a little special.

A reboot worked for me and i would recommend that for anyone who may encounter similar issues.

 

Thank you J. for the assistance.
