New storefront makes finding and downloading apps quicker.

RIM announced the launch of BlackBerry App World 3.0 – a new storefront that promises a cleaner look, and faster means of finding and download apps such as games, softwares and themes.

Some of the new features include:

  • Sleek New Design – The BlackBerry App World experience has been enhanced to help users discover the latest and greatest apps and content, starting right on the BlackBerry App World home screen where rotating spotlight banners show off all that’s new and exciting.
  • New Channels – Apps, Games, and Themes now have their own channels so users can get to what they want even faster.
  • Introduction of My Account – My Account makes managing BBID and payment options easy with direct access to all account information from the home screen. 
  • New My World Features – My World gives users a streamlined view of their apps and status, and now at a glance, in addition to seeing which apps are installed and uninstalled, users can manage subscription content and services.  When new updates or subscription renewals are available for apps, users will be notified using push technology.
  • App Social Sharing – when a user finds an app they can’t live without, they can share it directly from the app details screen through BBM, Facebook, Twitter, email and SMS
  • Evolved App Details Screen – At a glance, users can get a quick summary, check out reviews and star ratings, take a look at screen shots, and more
  • More Search Options – Quickly find apps with a Search Bar now appearing on the storefront home screen and search results are presented across Channels as well as My World.  Search Bars are also within each Channel and users have the ability to filter by App Name, Price, Rating, Newest, Best Match, or Popular

The App World 3.0 will be available for BlackBerry users with 0S 5+.
