App World 2.0 is expected to offer carrier billing and additional features
As we continue to see how shopping for apps can still be a tedious process on some mobile platforms, RIM looks to be hard at working in making some refinements to their App World which should see it move to 2.0 some time soon. BlackBerry App World 2.0 has a lot riding on its back as recent news reveal some of the work RIM has been doing of late to get them up to speed. By far the biggest thing to come out of App World 2.0 will be its support for carrier billing as app purchases can now be charged directly to your monthly bill, but thankfully for those who've been using the app, it'll still offer support for PayPal payments. There will also be some minor usability enhancements which should drastically improve and return better search results for apps while “My World” will allow users to check relevant information pertaining to the user's apps. Support for QR bar codes will also be making an appearance to provide users a quick way of getting certain applications directly onto their handsets. Finally, App World 2.0 will introduce BlackBerry ID which will make moving accounts between BlackBerry smartphones and between carriers a tad bit more easy. Naturally there is plenty of stuff to be seen with this upcoming release and we're sure that it will make App World a bit more relevant for users.
