RIM Releases BlackBerry World 3.0 Beta
Research In Motion today made a beta version of BlackBerry World 3.0 available to betazone testers. The new version of RIM's application store has been revised heavily, and features an entirely new home screen. Users can perform searches directly from the home screen, as well as access categories of apps faster. RIM moved some of the more popular categories to the home screen, as well. RIM says it also revised the behavior of the carousel that is used to casually browse through new and featured applications, and it will be updated more frequently. Last, RIM said that it has moved important app details so that they require less digging to find, and also added the ability to share apps to Facebook and Twitter. BlackBerry World 3.0 is available for free for registered betazone members. RIM did not indicate when it might be made available to the general public.
