    Question App names showing with parenthesis...

    Advertisement



    A couple days ago I had an issue with some 3rd party themes which got somewhat resolved with removing them and reinstalling...

    At that time most of the BB applications (phone, contacts, messages, etc.) disappeared and 3rd party apps were still present but the names were shown with parenthesis of a letter to launch. Clicking on the corresponding letter on the keypad would launch that app. So I decided to do a full wipe and install everything fresh. Now I've noticed that BerryWeather is showing like this "BerryWeather (w)" when I hold the BB button on my phone and show running apps.

    I do not know if things will get worse again or if this is normal. I never noticed the (w) in BerryWeather before. I have several 3rd party themes and most of the app installed are listed in my sig.

    Any ideas or similiar situations?!?!?!

    Red,
    Never seen this issue before. Does it persist if you use a standard OEM theme?

    Don't suppose you have an app like Shortcut Me installed do you? It sounds like a problem with one of these convenience launcher apps.

    Just read your post again and checked your signature. I'd guess QuickLaunch may be the culprit with the letters beside apps. Try uninstalling it and see if that clears it up.

    Gary, yes it exists on OEM themes also!

    MStraw, just deleted quciklaunch and it's still there! Never used shortcut me!

    This is just weird, hope it doesn't mess up my phone!

    I don't think there will be any kind of damage to your device because of this. Strange though, 'cause you usually see this type of functionality with a 3rd party app that creates shortcuts. You may want to simply reload the OS on your device and see if that clears it up.

    Okay, I'm at a lost...

    So last night it was bothering me so much I wiped my phone again and the first app I installed was berryweather. This time there was an underscore _ under the W. Then after installing quicklaunch it changed to (w). Niot sure what gives, but everything is running fine so I'm just gonna leave it.

    BTW, I installed .250 this time from .206!!!
