Re: There is no "Purchase" button on BB World for Playbook

I cannot imagine an update will occur now since the PlayBook is pretty much dropped.

Re: There is no "Purchase" button on BB World for Playbook

[ Edited ]

Since June 2012 we've been plagued by missing Buy buttons. First because of a bug in the Try & Buy system, then since February 2013 because of the bug documented in this thread.

 

Over the past months this problem has been steadily increasing, and it has accelerated further this last month. Now we are receiving half a dozen e-mails a day from users asking for help. A quick calculation:

 

6 users x 30 days x $2.99 x 0.7 share = $376.

 

I estimate only 25% of users e-mail for support, so this bug in BlackBerry World is probably costing us over $1500 a month.

 

BlackBerry, I'm not usually one for strong language, but if you really care about your developers:

We are getting reports that this is still not fixed in last weeks 2.1.0.1753 update. Can anyone confirm?

No, not yet.

It's working fine on my own Playbook too.
