    When you look at the list of applications on the device, some names are in bold. What does that mean?

    I noticed this only on 4.5 version. I think that those are apps that you have setup as secure/trusted...

    Patrick,
    I am using a 8820 with OS 4.2.2.184 and none of mine a in BOLD. Even the trusted ones are not. What OS are you running?

    Admittedly, I am running 4.5, however, I noticed this even when I had 4.2.2. I'm not sure what it means, either.

    I have some with 4.3 and was also wondering what it meant.

    I think it is the newest apps, that's what it seems to be on mine.

    I think that's when you've changed it's permissions.

    it is neither of the last 2 (new apps or changed permissions), as a few of mine are bold and i they are neither new or recently changed...

    i would love to know what it does mean though....

    i think it has something to do with the BB recommending you change the permissions for the apps that are in bold..i checked out the perm's for one of my bold apps, and the allow and deny options were bold, so i changed it to default/custom, and the phone reset...

    it seems as those the BB wants to restrict perm's for those particular apps, since BB knows best lol....but in the end its up to you of course, the bold is just an educated suggestion...

    all that is just my guess...

    That's interesting. I've been meaning to say something, but just haven't. Something to think on.

    I've been wondering the same thing, but haven't really found a pattern to explain it yet.

    This seems to be the case to me as well. Can anyone confirm?

    Pretty sure its recommending change to permissions and it does on my berry flip with 4.6 (4.6.0.180) so that just may be the case.

    I am on 4.5 and I noticed two were in bold the other day but as of today none are bold anymore though I did nothing - more confusion to throw out there

    I can confirm that the bold app name means that one or more of your default permissions has been changed.

    The bold font indicates that the application permissions are set to something other than the default setting.
