Default downloading apps to desktop?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello. I was wandering if blackberry offered the option to download an application to the desktop and then have it transfered over to the blackberry. It would be the same as the iphone worked and how palm used to sync their apps over. Thanks

It's called "Desktop Manager"...

A good place to start would be BlackBerry FAQ - BlackBerryFAQ

OK, so what's the question?

There are two ways to load apps - over the air, and through Desktop Manager. That's about it.
