BlackBerry App World Desktop Commerce Now Live!

We got confirmation that BlackBerry App World desktop commerce was coming back at the BlackBerry Developer Conference and it’s now live. The new App World site allows you to purchase and download free apps as well as sync your device so that your apps are synced with the site.

Currently, only Windows is supported and the site supports a few types of billing including PayPal, credit card or carrier billing. To get started with the new site, you’ll need to install a 1MB MSI App World installer.

Head over to App World and check it out.

RIM Confirms BlackBerry App World Getting Desktop Commerce


app world

In an interview with Martyn Mallick, Sr. Director, Business Development and Strategic Alliances, we got confirmation that App World for desktop will be getting commerce. This isn’t necessarily big news because we’ve always assumed that this was part of App World’s roadmap, but it’s nice to get confirmation from RIM on the upcoming feature. The feature was also confirmed in an App World session here at DevCon, where we learned that the service will use your BlackBerry ID and will even be able to leverage carrier billing from the desktop. With this new feature, users will be able to buy and download apps and they won’t even need a data plan. All they’ll have to do is purchase and side-load.

How to delete sent emails on Blackberry and not your desktop


Its annoying to have all your sent items sitting on your device but it’s important to have them in case you need to review an old sent email. So, we need to delete the items on your device, but keep them on your desktop for future use. To do this requires a quick setup, and a routine task:

1. Go into your messages.
2. Click the Trackwheel and select Search.
3. Scroll down and change Show from Sent and Received to Sent Only.
4. Scroll down and change Type from All to Email.
5. Click the Trackwheel and select Save.
6. In the Title, give it a name. Recommended: Sent Only.
7. For a shortcut key, pick a letter. Recommended: “A”.
8. Click the trackwheel and click Save.
9. This will now search and pull up all of your sent items. To delete them all without impacting your desktop, highlight the top most date, click the trackwheel, and select Delete Prior.
10. Now, on a regular basis you simply:

* Go into messages.
* press Alt-A.
* view the sent only items.
* Click the trackwheel.
* Select Delete Prior. Done!
