Default Pixelated Plus is not available for download from app world?????

Please Login to Remove!

So I've got Pixelated Plus v2.1 installed, and now App World (My World) says there's an upgrade available. So I click on it, it asks if I want to replace v2.1 with v2.2, I say "Yes", it goes to the download window with the green "downloading" progress bar, and then throws the error message in the title.

Anyone else having this problem, or know of a way to make it work? Been trying for about 12 hours now, multiple reboots, went to BB app world site & e-mailed myself a link, etc.

I've had this same behavior from App World on several occasions. I begin to download an update, which ends up being the exact same version I'm currently running, and the download fails after getting about 1/5 into it. I know it's the same app version too, because after eventually getting it updated through App World I'm prompted to replace version 4.2.11 with version 4.2.11, or whatever. And after rebooting, App World still shows an update available for that same app! That's usually the sign for me to delete it and move on.

Finding an external link is the best way to get an app that fails to download through App World. Quitting and restarting App World, then restarting the download process gets me farther along each time before failure, but it gets the download done after 3 or 4 cycles. I still call that a FAIL.

After trying everything mentioned above, I e-mailed the publisher and they said it sounded like I simply wasn't logged in to app world my world. Did that, tried the download, and it worked like a charm! Sometimes the simple stuff is easy to overlook....
