Apple might have been first off the block with its App Store, but two years down the track and the mobile app market is overflowing with apps we love… and apps we love to hate. Here’s an updated look at the app stores we first saw back in April last year.

Back in April 2009, Research in Motion launched BlackBerry App World, their online app serving portal accessible directly from a Blackberry handset. Unless you were an Australian, of course.

BlackBerry App World Finally Launches In Australia

BlackBerry App World 1.1 Brings Archived Apps, Advanced Sorting

The newest update to BlackBerry’s App World, version 1.1, launched today, and it’s pretty minor but certainly welcome. Apps can now be adequately sorted by free, paid, and other rubrics, and can be archived onto either internal or external memory.


RIM Starts "MyBlackBerry" Social Network, Integrated With App World
