I am getting REALLY frustrated with Appworld not updating applications. I started purchasing applications exclusively from Appworld awhile back and I've started to notice that Mobihand or Handango are providing access to new version way before Appworld customers. For example, These are all applications I've purchased and what version is available on Appworld vs Mobihand:
FileScout 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
Blackbook 220.127.116.11 2.0
Bugme! 1.1 18.104.22.168
These application developers contend that their applications are waiting to get "Approved" by Appworld. This is exactly why I didn't want to purchase an Iphone. I don't like the censorship and total control they exert over what users can put on the phones they have purchased. Fortunately, there are alternatives like Mobihand for Blackberry, but I'm disappointed in Appworld. I'm satisfied with the application, but if this continues, I will switch everything to Mobihand even if I have to re-buy the applications I already own.
