Who chooses what apps are available in Download! ?

... and for which devices?

At the weekend, I had a look at what was around in Download!

The format appears to have changed, and now, instead of a number of groupings (folders) of apps, I see 2 instances of "Catalogs" (with film clips, etc), and one E90 icon, entitled "E90 Services".

Within this are:
Daily Numbers
Cricket
PremierScores
Speereo Travel Service
mScorecard
scanR
Daily Words
Transport for London

WorldMate, PocketExpress, Widsets et al have all disappeared.

Transport for London (as far as I can see) is nothing more than a simple link to the normal TFL website, but the one that gets me is Daily Words: This is a daily set of word puzzles (crossword, codebreaker and wordsearch). The deal is that you get 5 minutes to play for free, and after that you have to subscribe. Fair enough. I only tried the crossword, and (once I'd worked out what the problem was) it's a very neat implementation - I like it. BUT it took me several minutes of wondering what I was doing wrong before I worked out that the app DOESN'T WORK WITH THE E90's INTERNAL KEYBOARD! It simply doesn't respond to character key presses.

What on EARTH in an app that can't use the E90 internal keyboard doing in a folder that calls itself E90 services????

Looks like something is confused with your Download!, mine still shows the usual bunch of things and I installed Blackberry Connect 4 using it yesterday.
