    Snap cannot be loaded OTA although it's very simple & quick to do with a PC. Amazon Appstore can be loaded OTA though. Here's some info I've shared before...

    The Google Play store itself doesn't work on BB10; however there is a native BB10 app called Snap which is a Google Play client. All its content is directly from Google Play, but a developer has packaged it into a BB10 app.

    There's also the Amazon Appstore, which will be included in OS 10.3 alongside BlackBerry World. You can get Amazon Appstore right now though from here:
    Amazon.com/GetAppstore

    Here's some general info on using Android apps on BB10:

    Here's the thread on Snap:

    And here's the free desktop program Sachesi which you can use to load Snap onto your Z10, since it's ironically not available in any app store:

    This is how to use Sachesi:

    Sadly there's something wrong with my laptop now I can't use it, and all the other sideloaded stores seems to be pretty risky, so (snap) is the best APK downloaded so far!

    You can using SideSwype.

    It's an app that uses a VPN server allowing you to sideload OTA.

    Erm.... Google Play store does works flawlessly on Blackberry 10. And it must not be sideloaded.

    What is the difference between sideloading Snap, installing Google Play Store as per Cobalt232, and using evozi.com after copying the url of the app I'm looking for on the GPS website? Personally, I find evozi.com to be the simplest solution (and I haven't tried sideloading Snap or installing GPS), but is there a difference in terms of how the apps perform, or which apps are available?

    The apps are the same. But with Google Play store you buy apps and buy in-app content (ie Gold in clash of clans or upgrade an app to pro version).

    Fair enough!

    I've kept that quote saved in ClipMan to re-share whenever needed. Guess I need to update it with a blurb about your Play store apk now too. Thanks.
