About: Apps and App World

Some preliminary notes

You will need an active BIS or BES service to access the App World.

Another note for apps: All Apps are installed into the device memory. You can’t install and launch it via memory card as of yet.

Installing of Apps – Terminology

OTA – also known as “Over the air” – It is usually a link ending with “.jad”
It is used usually for premium themes. Open the link in your BB browser to install.

Via App world – search for the application that you want and click install! That’s it!

DM/offline install – It comes with a “.alx” file and usually a handful of “.cod” files.
Open the file (.alx) in the Blackbery Desktop manager to install into your device.
