New BB user here.
I downloaded google local to my 8700, but am not sure how to run it. I would expect to see an application icon, but there's nothing there. I came from the Pocket PC world, and this is my first day w/ the BB, so sorry for the dumb ?

There will be an icon. If you are on Cingular look in the applications subfolder. You start it up and use the trackwheel to enter searches.

Sorry for being dense, but I don't have a clue how to navigate folder structures from the startup (or any) screen.

Thanks.

You do not navigate file structures. the BB is not based on that.

Using the trackwheel you scroll to the icon that say applications (it looks like a folder) Then click the track wheel. Yiou should then see icons for your applications that were installed. Scroll to them with the track wheel and click.

The BB is a totaly different animal than a pocket PC. It is a learning curve; however, once you are proficient you will not look back.

Got it.
I'm sure I'll learn, I went Palm to PPC, now BB. Soon as I figure out the paradigm, I'll be better off.
