BlackBerry App World 2.0 beta goes live this week

updated 03:05 pm EDT, Thu July 29, 2010

BBerry App World 2 ready to use in North America

RIM today took its promised BlackBerry App World 2.0 features live through its beta program. American and Canadian BlackBerry owners who sign up can get a BlackBerry ID that finally allows credit cards and carrier billing instead of the usual PayPal. It also adds a much-requested ability to re-download apps when switching phones.

The store itself is simpler, with tabbed sections that will show the top 25 free and paid apps as well as the newest or most recently updated titles. Customization fans can also see the top 25 themes. RIM hasn't said when it anticipates rolling out App World to more countries and when it will be finished.
