How-To

Identify BlackBerry smartphone app version

If you follow the Inside BlackBerry® Help Blog, you may have seen a post I did previously about how to identify which version of BlackBerry® Device Software you are currently using. Now, if that post led you to ask yourself, “What version of this BlackBerry smartphone app/game am I using?” then you’re in the right place! Today I’d like to show you how to identify the version of an app or game that is installed on a BlackBerry smartphone. This is good information to know if you are troubleshooting or need assistance on a specific app.

Before we begin, if you don’t know which version of BlackBerry Device Software you are using, please visit the link I provided above so you can follow the instructions that apply to you. Provided you know what version you are using, select the steps that apply to you below:

BlackBerry® 6 & BlackBerry® 7

  1. Select Options on the home screen (this may appear within a Settings folder depending on your current theme).
  2. Select Device followed by Application Management.
  3. Start typing the name of the app to identify the app name and version (for example, BlackBerry® Maps 6.1.0.25).
