AppWorld gift purchase
A friend of mine is asking me to pay for an app through the gift purchase function in AppWorld, and of course I can spare a couple of bucks for a good friend.
The problem is, I try to do it through the request in BBM but when I get in AppWorld it tells me that this person is not in my contact list, even though it is in every single way possible!
I am using a Bold 9900, with all the latest available version.

Does anyone know anything about this? All help appreciated!!

Re: AppWorld gift purchase
Does the other person have an Appworld account?

Send a gift request
Instead of buying an item from the BlackBerry App World storefront, you can ask a BlackBerry Messenger contact to buy it for you. When your BBM contact responds to your gift request and purchases the item, you can download the item from the item details screen.
On the item details screen, click the gift icon.
Click Request Gift.
Click a BBM contact.
Click Send Gift Request.

No, I think you misunderstood me. The other person was requesting ME to purchase as a gift for them by doing what you just said. And yes, we both have App World and BBM. And we are both in each others contact list.

Have your buddy visit app world and hit the Request as Gift from a BBM contact (small button appears beside the buy button), after that, he can use it to send you a msg he/she would like this app as a gift.
