The difficulties of looking through apps in BB World

Is anyone else finding BB World frustrating in the way that it is organised?

If I'm just randomly looking though, for example, possible photography apps to use there is an enormous amount of mixed photo sites. I want to be able to find an app, for say Time Lapse, so my options are that I can do a search which works fine if I use those words in the Search Box. But if I manually search though the photo apps to see if I can see any other apps that may be of interest in actually using the Z10's camera to take or edit photos, there are loads of so called apps of general wildlife, countries, individuals Flikr sites, celebrities, etc., etc.!


I guess though that we are in early days of apps for OS10, so it might improve of its own accord, but . . .

Is it possible for app folders to be further organised so that there are specific folders that make it more logical and clearer where to find apps for using features of a particular BlackBerry? So for example, still using the Apps: Photography folder but could be applied to most folders, the improved layout could be:


  • camera apps for taking photos
  • editing apps for altering photos
  • general photography apps, which could have sub-folders such as
  •     - individuals website apps
  •     - celebrities
  •     - Flikr or album type sites
  •     - wallpapers
  •     - etc., etc.

I haven't seen those sub categories in the past in AppWorld.

Re: The difficulties of looking through apps in BB World

No, this was more an observation as the new OS/Z10 has meant that I have to trawl through apps that work now with OS10, and I was amazed at how many 'non-apps' (can't think of a better word!) there were hiding the potentially useful apps - so it was a case of wondering whether it could be organised better.
