    Well, I've noticed something odd with BlackBerry World the past several days.
    When I try to update an existing app it would take so long and barely do anything, then there would be an error. Here's the catch though, it's only happening with Made For BlackBerry apps :S.
    Other apps update rather quickly. Anyone else having this problem.
    And before any heroes say this has been discussed, please take a breath and don't respond if you have nothing productive to add.

    No I haven't seen this specifically mentioned before, that BFB apps are noticed to have particular DL issues.

    Regardless, it's likely fixed the same as most BB World DL issues: by clearing the BB World cache.

    Whenever anything weird happens with BB World, usually clearing the BB World cache fixes the issue.

    1. Open BB World.
    2. Swipe down from top, select Settings.
    3. Tap the version number. (There will NOT be any visible indication that anything happened!)
    4. Tap Back.
    5. Swipe up to minimize. Long press the X until BB World frame closes. (Don't just tap it.)
    6. Reopen BB World to see if issue is resolved.

    If not, please repeat the steps above, but don't reopen BB World.
    Next, do a device reset. (NOT the same as a restart.)

    Hold down top button, for about 30 seconds.
    Keep pressing it down, ignoring onscreen countdown and restart option, BB splashscreen, black screen, red LED, BB splashscreen again.
    I keep holding it down until I see the blue startup icon.

    See if anything is fixed after the reboot. Fingers crossed...
