While we reported that App World’s desktop storefront went live yesterday, RIM has sent out an update officially announcing it. The latest update to the App World website allows users to purchase and download apps directly from their PC. Through the BlackBerry App World storefront users can now:
- Purchase apps directly from the website
- Edit My World accounts to sync app downloads directly to the BlackBerry smartphone
- Read and write reviews and recommend items to peers
- Access purchased or downloaded apps from a computer via the My World page in the BlackBerry App World storefront
Head over to the App World site to check it out. We’re still waiting on Mac support and hopefully it will come soon.
Question: will this mean more downloads and sales for developers, or just more convenience for users?
