Say what you will about BlackBerry and its selection of apps: BlackBerry App World is a quality app storefront. Both the web store and the on-device store now deliver quite excellent experiences. There’s really only one thing that bugged the crap out of me. Apps update all the time. Depending on how many apps you have installed, you might get half a dozen updates a week. With the App Store and Google Play, you can hit a single button, Update All, and then put down your phone. But with App World you have to update them all individually. That, thankfully, has changed with the latest App World update. In addition to the Upgrade All feature — by far the most important — RIM added a few NFC bells and whistles. You can share your app list with friends via NFC, which means you can also see your friends’ apps lists. Apparently you can also connect App World and BBM for some new features. I’m not sure what yet, but it sounds like it has potential. With so much focus on what RIM has done wrong in the past few years, it’s nice to see that they’ve done something right with App World. In fact, since launching in April 2009 people have downloaded 3 billion apps from App World. That’s not quite as fast as the App Store and Google Play, but clearly RIM is playing from a different baseline. You can get the latest version right on your BlackBerry device. Once you open it up, you’ll see a box prompting you to upgrade. If you don’t have it, but now want it, you can point your BlackBerry browser to http://appworld.blackberry.com/.
