- Optimized checkout – Once you are registered, just login then purchase with a few clicks
You can download and install MobiHand App Store to your BlackBerry by pointing your device’s browser to http://www.mobihand/appstore.
I thought that creating an app. store to compete with RIM’s offering was a waste of time, but RIM pricing apps at 2.99 will actually encourage competition with other stores where simple apps will be .99 or less..
I am not sure why they didn’t just do exactly what Apple has done, it makes no sense to me whatsoever.
The first thing that I thought when I heard about App Worlds’s pricing structure was that RIM opened the door up for competing app stores to undercut them on them on price.
Interesting that Mobihand releases their App Store application on the same day as Crackberry.
I think that everyone is probably trying to capitalize on all the buzz surrounding the launch of App World.
Looks like they’re (Crackberry & Mobihand) the same app, actually. LOL. Installing one uninstalls the other, same version #’s, etc.
Ah, that’s why. According to the app, it’s the “Crackberry App Store, powered by MobiHand”
Yeah this is really cool. Perfect timing for me coz i just bought a blackberry yesterday at [url]www.pricego.org[/url].
I am still not impressed with this store. Why cant anyone get it together and sell apps for less than $2.99?!?! I was able to find one site that does this at Blackberry Storm Apps. Good luck and let me know what else you find!
I’ll tell you why Michael, it’s because we own BlackBerries that we can be over-charged. Because we must all be CEO’s or something and have all kinds of money.
