How slow is your AppWorld?
I have never considered AppWorld fast, but for the last few months it is killing me. Browsing is OK, installing is more or less fine (if you call fine downloading 3MB in 10-15 minutes, with WiFi on), but it is practically impossible to do any software upgrades. After starting an upgrade it goes to "Installing", and takes hours. Literally. 1MB takes about 30-45 minutes. 3MB usually crashes after 2-3 hours, sometimes saying that "AppWorld is not currently supported in your country", sometimes that "could not connect to server". Of course during the instalation the whole phone is practically frozen, do not react to any keys, etc. Every few minutes it reacts to something (usually to the key I pressed few minutes earlier in frustration).
I am in UK, where AppWorld is supported. I have the latest software and enough memory, I actually deleted few apps recently, hoping that it will speed things up. I am not sure if there is any solution to that, but wanted to share the frustration and see if there are any others who are frustrated too
And I know it could be much better - AppWorld on my Playbook works just fine...
