Renamed BlackBerry World web store sells music, videos

Monday 21 January 2013 | 12:35 CET | News
BlackBerry has changed the name of its "BlackBerry App World" web store to "BlackBerry World" to reflect a shift in the types of products available. The company announced on its blog that rather than only selling apps, BlackBerry World will now also offer videos and music. Billed as a one-stop shop for all BlackBerry owners' mobile entertainment needs, BlackBerry World also has a social network feature to allow users to tell friends about the apps, videos or music they like over BBM, Facebook and Twitter. The change is being made to the storefront before being rolled out to the PlayBook
