BlackBerry App World 3.0 officially launched

Today, BlackBerry’s App World 3.0 finally officially launched, with a fresh UI, improved channels for finding new apps, better handling of your BBID and account info, a more social App World experience and more. So let’s take a quick look.

We originally caught site of BlackBerry’s App World 3.0 a month ago, almost to the day. Back then we looked at the revamped UI, the new channels and navigation and basically everything that it had to offer. The App World was only available via BlackBerry’s Beta Zone back then, but today it appears that the finished product has begun rolling out on Berry’s all over the world.

As well as the new UI and revamped channels, sharing your app discoveries has been made easier with integration of BBM, Facebook, Twitter, email and SMS, you can also more readily rate and review apps too. It’s nothing we haven’t seen from the other leading mobile market stores, but it’s good to know that BlackBerry users will now be getting an App purchase experience, more on par with the leading competitors.

A notification should have popped up if you’re running BB OS 5.0 or higher, to let you know it’s time to upgrade. If you still haven’t received anything give it a couple more days, or alternatively, head over to the source link to try and kick start the update yourself. Also get in touch on the comments below, we’d love to know what you think about the new look, yay or nay? Let us know.
