Today RIM officially launched the U2 Mobile Album Today, we've been hearing about it for months and for all you U2 fans it has become a reality. Here's what you can expect:

Track the tour as the band moves across the globe – see where they’re going and where they’ve been (coming soon!)"
Maybe it's because I'm not as big a U2 fan as I was back in the day, maybe it's because I'm not impressed by how it looks on my little old 8330....but I just found this app to be ...meh. The videos don't show full screen, the samples of the songs are too short, and the news is hard to read because of the super small font.
But for those die hard U2 fans, this will be a great app for keeping up with the latest tour news. Find it on App World on your device running OS 4.5 or higher or check it out in the App World webstore here.
I have to agree. I wasn't very impressed but like you it may be because of my device on some of it. The clips do need to be a little longer and there is no reason the vid clips shouldn't be full screen. Will be interested in hearing how it looks on other devices since my 8330 is up for retirement.
App world does not work on 5.0.190. Does anyone have a direct ota link?

It's only available on App World as far as I know....
you can send it to her via a BBM message AZstar by going to it, selecting it, and then choosing reccomend. I think you can send it via BBM, PIN, Email, text, etc
I think that might still send them to app world on the BB just like sending yourself an app link from the BB app world webstore, but I'm not positive and I already deleted it so I can't test it. Maybe someone else can comment if they have used that feature.
