Why this wasn’t released along with the device-based application, I’ll never know, but RIM has just launched BlackBerry App World for the desktop. It has all the upgrades of version 1.1, including the ability to search for both paid and free applications. Best of all, you can opt to have the app email you a download link, so you can still perform the download OTA. For those who have issues with the speed of the on-device App World, that’s a pretty big plus. Just head to the normal URL, blackberry.com/appworld and scroll down to get it. Unfortunately you need to use Microsoft Internet Explorer, so once again Mac and BlackBerry users are hung out to dry.
