Android Apps on Blackberry 10
 
Dear Fellow Users,

I am looking to upgrade from my BB9900 to either the Z10 or Q10 and would like to know whether it is possible to sideload any Android App to Blackberry 10 (for someone who has no experience - BMW My Remote Access) in this area, or are we limited to what we can do.

I have been led to believe that Blackberry 10 has a limited apps base and I may be better off staying with my BB9900.

Could someone please advise me.

Many Thanks

Sanjiv

It is currently not possible to add Android applications to the work perimeter on the BlackBerry Playbook tablet or BlackBerry 10 smartphone; this is by design.

Alternatively, Android applications can be successfully downloaded directly into the personal perimeter on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet or BlackBerry 10 smartphone.

BlackBerry 10.2 will be supporting the latest version of Android Jellybean (Android 4.2.2), which will allow BB 10 smartphones to run the latest version of Android apps

4.2.2 is not the latest version of Jellybean. Please reload your OS.

It is possible to sideload some Android apps to a Z or a Q. The steps are pretty easy, though it is not 100% that the app will actually work.

If you search Sideloading BB10, it should give you some examples of the apps that are available.

There are apps now to make sideloading very easy. Check crackberry.com forums. Check goodereader.com for lots of converted android apps.

As daphne suggested, check crackberry for info. I used a method found there to load a few Android apps used on the older BB's so far they all work ok. they are internal work apps.

my next attempt is to try the Onstar app for my car which according to Onstar, they have no intention of supporting the new OS 10. Maybe they will change their mind if enough people complain.

apk2bar is good place to get .bar files, once you find the sideload method that works best for you. I use the PB app manager extension on Chrome, but other methods work just as well.
