    The latest version of App World can't be launched with launcher apps.

    The above is not the case for your ShortcutMe application with macro capablity:
    If you have upgraded to the latest version of App World and want to create a shortcut to launch it from anywhere, open ShortcutMe, hit BB key and select 'Add' and set the shortcut as follows:

    --AppName: Universal Search
    --Parameter:
    --Macros:
    KeyApp World;
    Delay 1000;
    NavMoveDown1;
    Delay 200;
    Navclick;
    --Display Name: App World

    @vijik: Thanks for sharing this work-around!

    Another related question: What is the app name for App World to use with the WaitTil macro? The following waits forever even though it has worked in the past:

    WaitTil IsAppForeground BlackBerry App World;

    I also found that the following macro returns immediately, regardless of whether App World is running:

    WaitTil !IsAppRunning BlackBerry App World;

    Try these instead:

    WaitTil IsModuleForeground net_rim_bb_appworld;

    WaitTil !IsModuleRunning net_rim_bb_appworld;

    Let's see how many more times ShortcutMe can dodge the changes in App World !

    --Display Name: App World
    I edited the macro above (new macro commands in bold) in order to guarantee that the search criteria is cleared before searching for "App World".

    I have now modified two macros that previously did not work with the latest release of App World that make use of the Universal Search work-around that @vijik provided -- one to reset the App World cache and a second to check for updated apps in App World. I actually cascade the two macros to reset the cache AND check for updates. FYI, delays can be adjusted for your particular device.

    Reset App World Cache
    --AppName: Universal Search
    --Parameter:
    --Macros:
    Delay500;
    InjectDelay50;
    Key.; ESCKey;

    KeyApp World;
    Delay 2500;

    /* >>> Adjust navigation to select "App World" within Universal Search. <<< */
    NavMoveDown1; Delay 100;
    NavMoveRight1; Delay 100;
    NavClick;

    WaitTil IsModuleForeground net_rim_bb_appworld;
    Vibrate 50;

    Delay10000;

    Vibrate 50;
    ALTPlusKeyrst;

    WaitTil !IsModuleRunning net_rim_bb_appworld;
    Vibrate 50;

    /* >>> Exit Universal Search. <<< */
    ESCKey;
    ESCKey;
    --Display Name: Reset App World Cache

    Check for App Updates
    --AppName: Universal Search
    --Parameter:
    --Macros:
    Delay500;
    InjectDelay25;
    Key.; ESCKey;

    KeyApp World;
    Delay 2500;

    /* >>> Adjust navigation to select "App World" within Universal Search. <<< */
    NavMoveDown1; Delay 100;
    NavMoveRight1; Delay 100;
    NavClick;

    WaitTil IsModuleForeground net_rim_bb_appworld;
    Delay27500;

    /* Adjust navigation to select "My World" */
    NavMoveDown2; Delay100;
    NavMoveRight1; Delay100;
    NavClick;
    Vibrate 50;

    /* >>> Once list of apps appear within "My World", manually download updated apps (if any), and ESC to exit App World. <<< */

    WaitTil !IsModuleRunning net_rim_bb_appworld;

    Vibrate 50;

    /* >>> Exit Universal Search. <<< */
    ESCKey;
    ESCKey;
    --Display Name: Check for App Updates

    As always, I am open to suggestions for improvements.

    @Visortgw,

    Very cool set of macros.

    Do you mind if I make plugins from them so that others can download and use it?
