App store BlackBerry World receives update to prepare for BlackBerry Passport and Classic
BlackBerry World is getting an update that is appearing on devices running on BlackBerry 10.2 or higher. Even those running a leaked version, or a developer version, of 10.3, will see the update. This will probably be the version of BlackBerry World that will come out of the box on the BlackBerry Passport or BlackBerry Classic, as both of those models are expected to ship with the latest version of the BlackBerry OS.

The update offers enhanced displays for higher resolution models. Under search, you will be able to view your recently viewed and bookmarked apps. And the update brings support for future form factors (like the Passport, no doubt), along with enhancements to search. And there will be a micro-carousel update on content home pages.

The actual version of BlackBerry World that the update takes us to is v5.1.0.53. Hard to believe, but when the store first launched on April Fools' Day 2009, it contained only 234 apps initially.

The only reason why I read BB articles in PA is because of the comments.

BB apps store is uninteresting. Most of the apps in it were VERY LOW QUALITY apps made by only a couple of company paid by BB to boost the apps count. 1 company even caught with 129,000 JUNK QUALITY APPS.

All of those links you just referenced are from sites that troll BlackBerry, much like you. The information you keep referencing is from LAST YEAR. MOST of those apps have already been REMOVED from BlackBerry World. You never have CURRENT information when you post your links.

EVERY OS has JUNK APPS. Just LOOK at how many frat and flashlight apps are in Google Play and iOS's app world.

The apps did not removed by BB. BB actually issue a statement say that developer didn't break any rule, so they won't remove the apps.

No, about a couple of years back, I just surrounded by lots of bb user that always try to show me how good their device were compared to my nokia. Luckily for me, BB didn't do well, and most of those bb user already moved on.
