    Default Are these .bar files safe?

    Part of me is so happy that we can run Android apps on our BB10 and Playbook devices. However, another part of me is a bit worried. Wouldn't it be possible to add some malicious code to the .bar file for key stroke logging or some other malicious activity? I see PayPal and banking apps so I'm wondering if these are safe to use?

    Any thoughts on this?

    All of the apps on our store are taken directly from Google Play and then converted to BAR files, so they are 100% safe. I know exactly what you mean, it is fairly easily to bundle the apk with crappy malware and convert it to blackberry. This is why, we recommend everyone download stuff from our store, rather then some dodgy 3rd rate site.

    Thanks for your reply. I actually erased all of my .bar files and downloaded them from your site. However, the Chase bank app and the PayPal app from your site do not work.

    So you guys actually do the conversion yourselves?

    Thanks!

    Just because you downloaded the original file from Google Play doesn't guarantee 100% that it is safe...
