    I'm still running on my old school Blackberry Curve and it's time for me to upgrade. I love the new Passport and even the Classic as well as the the new OS, but my only concern is whether additional apps besides the ones from Blackberry World would run smooth. I'm talking about Instagram, Google maps, skype, magic jack etc. I'm also very much interested in forex trading apps like Metatrader.
    Thanks guys for your input and experience.

    No need to install Snap for APK's. Easy way is 1Mobile Android Market. There is a lot of APK's and it's very easy to install. Try it..

    Some apps run smooth, other apps don't. It's not consistent at all.

    For me, apps like Instagram, PicsArt, Skype, Kik, etc. run very smoothly. Others don't run as smooth, but are still very usable.

    The thing is, I'm running a Z10 which has lower specs than a Passport, and maybe the Classic too. So expect the apps on the Passport to be smoother than that of the Z10.

    You are running 10.3.0? Not optimized for the Z10

    I find that hard to believe (Figure of speech. I know it's not made for this.) since my Android apps perform just as well as on 10.2, and Android apps are the topic.

    I am on the latest and can easily tell that my Z10 runs better than any 10.3.0 build. Including android apps.

    I had 10.3.1.1151 loaded on my Z10 before I got this Z30 (going to load it on here soon too). All my droids were running quite fine...better than they were with 10.2, in fact.
    I had none of the issues being posted in the fixes and findings thread but I may have been one of the exceptions to the rule.
    Can't hurt to try it (or the 10.3.1.1154), and if it doesn't work properly for you, just reload the factory software and wait for the OTA.

    Now brought to you by the amazing Z30!

    If an android app runs smoothly on BlackBerry device you are lucky
    Coz most android apps are not optimised for BlackBerry devices
    However the qualcomm variant of z10 has better working android apps than OMAP variant coz 90% android phones are based on qualcomm
