BlackBerry App World v2.1.0.39 Out Of Beta And Available For Download

The latest version of BlackBerry App World has been in beta since the beginning of the year, however, version 2.1.0.39 is now officially available and ready for download.

BlackBerry App World v2.1.0.39 features include:

  • In-app Payments – App World 2.1 includes support for in-app payments. How does this change the way you interact with certain paid applications as a developer or as a consumer?
  • Filtered Featured Items – Once you open this latest version of App World, you’ll notice that Featured Items are seemingly more relevant to you. Well, we decided to change this functionality based on the feedback we received from you during the App World 2.0 Beta Program. Featured Items are now filtered by carrier and country to ensure that you are presented with the most relevant apps as soon as you open App World.
  • Extended BBID Login Session – We heard what you had to say during the App World 2.0 Beta Program last summer and decided to make some changes to the BBID functionality in App World. With this latest release, a single BBID login session lasts for 20 minutes, making it easier for you to download and install as many apps as you’d like in one go. Please remember that during the 20 minute BBID login session, you will not be prompted again for your BlackBerry ID to complete a purchase. If your BlackBerry smartphone gets in the hands of someone else, they could make a purchase that you’re not aware of.

Please note that this is simply the BlackBerry App World Vendor Portal. End-users will not be able to download digital goods through BlackBerry Payment Service until the BlackBerry App World 2.1 client is launched in the future. We will announce more information regarding the client launch in the future.

Thank you for building for BlackBerry,
