Featured App Icons in App World Replaced With BlackBerry Icons


App World

Checking out App World it seems like RIM has replaced a lot of the featured app’s icons in the App World carousel with a BlackBerry icon. It’s not clear why this has happened but the problem has persisted for a few hours now. Even after exiting and restarting App World, the problem persists. It’s a real shame when something like this happens because developers only get 1 week of being featured and the icon is an important marketing tool.

If you think RIM should offer all the developers another week of being featured say “aye!”.

    The ApWorld Web portal was also not showing the images at Friday (there none image was shown at all) – at Saturday morning they finally appeared… now it’s Sunday and still just the default images on the device in AppWorld – :-(
