Default newb question about OTA

Please Login to Remove!

So, I am preparing for my BB delivery when I realize that macs do not have an app loader through any avilable software (what I read at least) So my only question is, how do you know if an APP is OTA or not? Do you just try it and see if it works? I have been downloading some apps and games to get ready to load them right away, and now am wondering how I am going to get them on my BB if they are not OTA

Unfortunately it doesn't have anything to do with loading applications.

You can not load applications from a Mac using PocketMac.

Here is Finch's excellent writeup.

well,damn....how do i get programs on my BlackBerry then? I can navigate to the page on the BB and download it that way OTA right? But are certain programs OTA and certain are not?

His write up tells me I CANNOT do it through desktop software, but doesn't state that you can't do it at all right?

I am a bit confused, I'm sorry

Some programs are OTA, some are Windows based loaders, and some (PocketDay, for example) are both. It is however the programmer decided to do it. Magmic games are both.
