Research In Motion today began distributing BlackBerry App World 2.0 to registered testers in its BlackBerry Beta Zone program. Beta Zone members can expect to receive an email from RIM with a link to the application. BlackBerry App World 2.0 was announced earlier this year. The most important benefit of App World 2.0 is support for carrier billing. App World will still support PayPal, but BlackBerry users will have the opportunity to use their credit card or directly bill their carrier account for App World purchases. BlackBerry App World 2.0 also sees some minor usability enhancements. According to RIM, the search function has been drastically improved and should return more relevant and better results. The "My World" part of Apps World will contain more information about the user's apps, including where they are stored (device memory or storage card), what's been deleted, etc. Last, RIM has built support for QR barcodes into App World. Now that it has reached beta testers, the revised app store is closer to its general release, though RIM didn't say when that might be.

Blackberry OS/Software

I had a Blackberry and switched to Android. I loved my Blackberry but felt like the OS/software available was very outdated. I'm glad they're finally taking some steps in improving the overall OS/software. They really need improvements in the available software downloads and installing to SD would be an awesome addition.
