    Okay, I'm trying to download a new theme from Blackberry App World via my PC.
    The site asks for my device email address, which I provide.
    I get an email containing a supposed link for download, yet the URL links my Bold back to the Blackberry App World site which, in turn, asks me for my email address again. This forms the continuous cycle.

    How are you supposed to download it if you keep getting re-directed back to the original page?

    Here's the page.

    Help would be appreciated.

    You need to install the App world on your phone if you want to download from them. You cannot download via your PC.

    I think I've mislead you.

    I visited the site on my PC and had the link sent to my Bold, whereupon I followed the link on my Bold.

    The PC was only used to visit the site in the first instance.

    Do I still need to install the Blackberry World App on my phone even if the link to download is sent to my device?

    Thanks.

    I had the same issues as you. I had to download the theme OTA using App World on my BlackBerry.

    Thanks to all.

    I'm now downloading it via the BBAW app.
    Seems dumb to have to go around in circles via BB's site, though.

    Thanks again.

    Yes, you need BlackBerry App World on your phone.

    I did the same as you. I visited the site on the PC, then typed in my email address. I got the link sent to my phone, but I could not open it, even though I had App World on the phone.

    I had to type "free sea storm animated theme" in the search box of App World on the phone. Then I was able to download the theme.

    You're welcome.

    I agree that the installation process is clunky.

    It's way too fussy and cluttered.

    Same here.

    I like the free animated lightning and tree theme, though.
