Suggestion for apps not quite available
I think many people already know this if they had a previous BB but when the new devices come out there is a bit of a lag to get some apps updated to it. So, here is are two suggestions that may help:
1. Even if the app is not in BB Appworld for the os7 you can use your desktop manager to switch devices and it will load the apps to the 7 device and work.
Bloomberg is an app I love but could not find it. This also worked for my audible.com app. That was kinda cool.
2. If the app does not work then try going to the website and saving it to your main page. It looks like an app and works well. I did this with Bloomberg just to test it.
3. Sometimes if you go to the provider, you can download an app that is not on BB Appworld.
O.K. that was three but I hope it helps someone. We just upgraded our phones and the keyboard on the Bold 9930 is just insanely good. I can't believe it. I had a Torch and it was nice but this thing is awesome (though the T2 may be much better).
My buddy had an HTC Evo4G and loves his Bold 9930. Finally, RIMM. What took you so long?

Thanks I'll have to try some of these. I'm absolutely loving this device but a bit bummed that some of my fav apps don't work. I haven't been able to hook up to dm yet bc my home pc isn't internet connected & apparently rim didn't think it necessary to include the software with the device.

The missing audible app is the one thing keeping me from ditching my Kindle, altogether. The Kindle Reader web app seems to work well enough (minus the having to be online to fire her up, but...), without the Kindle App for my phone (at least), I just can't let the Kindle go...sigh.
I'm going to try and load from the saved CODs I've got, since reading this..."You can observe a lot, just by watching" - Yogi Berra
