    I don't know, for the first day I think it was encouraging. There's a lot of junk out there, but there's useful things as well.

    What is not encouraging is the price. They want money for applications that make farting noises? Seriously? What professional Blackberry user is going to buy that.

    I saw a tip calculator on there for 6.99 or something like that. Things like that are all free on Android Market... then again, if you can't figure out a tip and need a calculator maybe it's worth it to those people, haha.

    2.99 to make your phone into a flashlight?

    My favorite one so far is the 8.99 app that tells you when Holiday's are approaching. Thank god I won't miss Christmas next year!!

    Did you see that 60 dollar price tag for that caller I.D. App? Its almost insulting the prices they think these apps are worth.

    I agree on that one. For farting noises ummm i'm not sure if i want to pay for that kind of app. 2.99 to make your phone into as flashlight. . . yeah . . . thats kind of sketchy and 8.99 for not missing Thanksgiving and Christmas OK! . . . i think that is over the edge. If anything i think apps of that kind should be free.

    In my opinion the app store should have flat rate and the apps that should be priced would be the ones help people on their everyday life for instance financing tools like spence tracking, mobile banking (Bank Of America has one which im not sure if its free but i heard it was) things like that but for spliting tips . . .

    what do you guys think ? is it worth the moeny?

    You all gotta remember that these are ppl trying to make a living in this horrible economy! LOL I agree that some apps are pricey but whatever... So what. If you dont like the farting app then dont buy the farting app. I think ciggarettes are to pricey... but thats life, right? How on earth could they have a flat rate??? DUHH lmao If nobody is buying apps cause they are to high in price then im sure they will come down a little. Everyone is so quick to judge.... You guys have any idea how many corporate ppl us blackberrys in their companies? The same ppl that make 2 and 3 times what we make in a year? You think they care about apps being pricey? NOOO course not. Just hang in there, im sure apps will get better with time

    People trying to make a living in this horrible economy....... well Bri, by trying to rip people off isn't the way to do it. People are not spending money in this economy. So I'm not sure what that even means.

    You don't beat the economy by charging more.

    And just because someone has a corporate blackberry does not mean they make 2 to 3x as much as us, and surely does not mean they will over pay for applications.

    So don't label people that make good money by saying "nooo, course not" on if they care about how much things cost.

    All that being said, nobody was attacking the app world. We were discussing. Not sure where anyone said "I really want that app but can't afford it".

    all im saying is that every time something new comes out, most ppl just start pointing out the negatives. Oh its free for this phone, and cheaper for that phone.... who would want this and who would want that.... wtf

    Hope the criticism is going well, I for one like the app worl oh and it doesn't say for the storm or not because it retrieves device specific apps. Like a curve gets a different selection of games than the storm just an FYI

    I understand that it gets "device specific" apps, but that being considered, a lot of them flat out dont work (or don't work as advertised) for the storm despite being available from the app world on my storm...

    Something else I noticed, I just upgraded my appworld app today to 1.0.0.27, and facebook is no longer in the app world! has anyone else noticed this? Could this be a sign of the impending upgrade at last?

    No auto update for the App World, application center doesn't show an update for the App World either.

    Yeah I just saw on berry review that it had been updated so I redownloaded it from mobile.blackberry.com. But there really needs to be some kind of auto update for this
