Blackberry Storm Applications


There are many applications available for Blackberry. Unfortunately, as the Storm (9500/9530) is considered "State of the Art", it is widely unsupported. It is important to understand the following:

  • BlackBerry Storm runs on OS 4.7
    • Many other BlackBerry's run 4.2 as the common lowest, and 4.5 as the common highest.
  • Many developers rarely take advantage of the GPS, the accelerometer, the touch screen, or the SureType screen.
  • Until AppWorld launches, BlackBerry Storm exclusive applications are the most sparse and decentralized of all the existing BlackBerry devices.

Before You Begin

Make sure the Core Browser identification is set to "BlackBerry".

  1. Open Browser
  2. Menu Key
    • Options
      • Browser Configuration
  3. Browser Identification

Compatibility Issues

For certain applications you can disable compatibility mode.
To do so:

  • Go to Options —> Advanced Options —> Applications
  • Highlight (Don't click) the app —> Menu Key —> Disable Compatibility Mode

When to disable compatibility mode:

  • If you suspect the app has been installed in compatibility mode
