Getting a new app for your BlackBerry should be a pleasant experience. Here are some things to consider after you have downloaded an app:
If you are still having problems with any app you purchase then you should check if the developer’s web site has any on-line support such as a FAQ page or a Knowledge Base that you can review.
If you can not find this information then you should contact the developer´s support group by email. When contacting the developer you should try to be specific about what the problem is, what model BlacBerry you have, what level Operating System you have, and where you bought the app from.
