Well I am guessing that we wont get this update either. I had to sign up as a Dev to get update 3.

I just got the Lumia Black update however I get a message that Nokia Beamer app is not available for my phone or carrier. All the other black specific apps are installable.

I suspect Verizon is blocking this one. They either want to charge us for it or are afraid of bandwidth issues. I really hate when VZ does crap like this.

Nokia Beamer is THE app I rally want. I do lots of demos and this the only way to project apps on my phone to a laptop.

@mhammo - This was not Verizon's fault.  Nokia had problems with the software and needed to make changes.  They have since reloaded the Nokia Beamer and Nokia Storyteller back in the Microsoft Store and it is available.  I have downloaded both and they work great!

I updated my Nokia 928 to Lumia Black last night, but the Storyteller App and the Beamer App will not load - have you tried these apps?

Are they 3rd party apps or Nokia apps?

3rd party app makers may not have their apps updated to run the latest version (Nokia Black) yet.

I'd recommend contacting them.

The apps I have installed currently seem to be good (several of them had updates waiting in the app store for me)

Yes, they are Nokia apps.  I am very excited for the Beamer app as it will allow me to give presentations from my phone.  I have contacted Nokia Cares Us via twitter - they are aware and working on the problem.

I updated Monday (1/27) and now NONE of my non-native applications will open.

Just does this refresh animation back to the homescreen.

Anyone else having this issue / know how to resolve without a hard reset?

How could you have updated to GDR3 with Nokia Black with Nokia Black firmware update is not available yet on Verizon for the Lumia 928?

Bc it wasn't the Black update, just the latest update VZW pushed through.

I think the update we got was GDR3. I didn't get it as a push notification, so I don't think it came from Verizon. I got it when I did a check for updates, so I think it might have been the MS update.

Go to "Settings" and click on "Extras and Info."  If it says "Lumia Amber" you did not get the Nokia Black update.  Also, go to "Settings" and click on "About" then tap on "more info".  If you OS Version is 8.0.10521.155, then you have GDR3.  If not, you dont'.

Oh boogers!..just a minor system update.  Well at least its a start.  Maybe this is needed for GDR3 and Lumia Black...

It is a shame that we have waited this long and still don't have GDR3.  There are a lot of great features I am ready to use.  If this is the norm, then I think I am going to be looking elsewhere when my contract is up, just a few months.

Nokia bundled Lumia Black with update three on the standard update cycle. If you already have update 3 you will just get black when everyone else is getting update 3 along with black.
