After last week’s App World update, some users running older OS versions, specifically OS 4.6 and 4.7, had their BlackBerry App World icon disappear. According to Inside BlackBerry, RIM has released a fix for this and the new version, BlackBerry App World v2.1.2.19, is available for download at the link below.

Note: Users who weren’t affected by the missing icon issue may also see an upgrade notification for v2.1.2.19. The only change in this version is the missing icon fix.

Evernote for BlackBerry now available with OTA link


evernote for blackberry

When I last posted about Evernote, the comments were pretty upset about availability. First, the download is only available for the BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve 8900 and the BlackBerry Storm. Also, Evernote for BlackBerry is only available for OS 4.6+ only.

In response to this, Evernote has offered the download as an OTA link so if you don’t have App World, you can grab it here.

* BlackBerry Storm OTA: http://s.evernote.com/stormota

Please note that you can choose whether to download the app to your computer (ZIP) or to perform OTA (over-the-air) installation which requires that you visit the page specified from your BlackBerry’s web browser.

To download the OS update, hit the either the Sprint or direct BlackBerry link below. To figure out what to do after that, read our OS upgrade how-to (Telus 8350i users may find this particularly interesting, as it contains instructions on how to use an OS build other than your carriers for upgrade goodness).

For now, you can see more of what BlackBerry Visual Voicemail will look like after the jump.
