Research in Motion (RIM) has refreshed the look and feel of its BlackBerry App World platform as part of its push to publicise version 2.0.
RIM is taking the route of most mobile manufacturers and attempting to make BlackBerry App World 2.0 far more competitive with the likes of Apple's App Store.
BlackBerry owners will be given a number of payment options, including online payment via PayPal or credit card purchases. The interface has been given a lift with simplified lists and categories which separate the free content from the premium apps.
App developers are being given a helping hand with QR barcode scanning, which will allow users to scan printed barcodes on app adverts using their phone's camera and then be taken straight to the relevant section on the BlackBerry App World 2.0 service to commence download.
The revamped app store is still yet to go on general release, but it is available in beta form for UK customers from the BlackBerry Beta Zone.
