RIM has announced the availability of the BlackBerry App World 3.1, which supports features such as Request a Gift, Wi-Fi only support, Content Rating based on the CTIA Wireless Association’s, and support for new languages.
According to information that came into my mailbox, some highlights of BlackBerry App World 3.1 include:
- Request a Gift: BlackBerry users can send their BBM friends a request to buy an app, theme, or game from the BlackBerry App World catalog
- Wi-Fi only Support: BlackBerry App World has always worked over Wi-Fi – but required a cellular connection to be present. With BlackBerry App World 3.1, no cellular connection is required!
- Content Rating and Filtering: BlackBerry users are now presented with a content rating to alert them to the content contained in an application
- New Language Support: BlackBerry App World is now available in additional languages including Dutch, Indonesian, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese.
BlackBerry App World 3.1 is free and can be downloaded from BlackBerry.com/appworld/
Note: You should see the option to upgrade if you already have an earlier version of App World installed
