BlackBerry App World

RIM’s 1.1 update to its Blackberry App World has made it more like the Apple App Store. The update includes a free and a paid top downloads list and new categories and sub-categories. Also, customers can now sort search results by Newest, Highest Rated, Price (lowest/highest), Developer (alphabetical), or Application Name (alphabetical). For those of you who need to temporarily remove apps for any reason, the update provides app archiving to an SD card or the BlackBerry’s internal memory – archived apps maybe reinstalled at any time. If you are a new BlackBerry customer, you can download the update at Mobile.BlackBerry.com or BlackBerry.com/AppWorld. If you are a current user, you will be notified via an alert icon on your BlackBerry App World icon. Some of these updated features may seem pleasingly new to Blackberry users, but will be quite familiar to Apple users.
