    Unless you installed 10.2.1.1055 by yourself, you do not have this beta version on your Z30 which can run APK's directly. You will have to use a sideload method to convert APK's to BAR files or install the leaked OS 10.2.1.1055 which is available if you search the forums.. You are likely on 10.2.0.xxxx

    The newest update of snap can now generate GSF ID and the UI is similar to BlackBerry world. It can show a complete description of the apk with screen shots and also it will tell you all apk installed and if there's an update of the apk it will inform you. It's just like having an android store installed in your bb10. Love it..

    Should we say AcADIeN or CaJuN (the declination of Acadien)?
    Refering to your comment above, I would say CaJuN. ..its a bit SpiCy!

    The OP did prepared a nice post sharing its enthusiasm running the "dual OS", you come here and just act like snapping a rule on its fingers.

    The launcher is just another app so you treat it as you would any other app (swipe up and close).

    dear crackberrians, after following the advice given here to my question i downloaded some android apps and i must say it was a lot easier that i thought it would be (btw BBZ10wannabe, i was running the leaked os, just wanted some advice about how to proceed since i couldn't find the thread mentioned it, thanks anyway)... i have been reading comments for years regarding the no app availability for a BB phone but now i think there is a suitable solution here... i know some android fans will jump on me in few seconds, but at least IMHO this new leak helps a lot in this situation... i am not an app type of guy, but it was nice to see the few ones i tried working flawlessly... so all good, thanks for the help, and i would recommend anyone on the fence between trying or not to install the leak and download android apps to give it a try

    Whenever you want to open an Android app, does the little box always pop up asking you to choose Launcher or qnx[****] to run the app? I installed Nova Launcher a few days ago but got rid of it since it was always a two-step process to open the app. I remember on my Android phone, you could say "always open with ....". Can you do this on BB10?

    Also, when you're in the Launcher and you click on an app, does that app open up another active frame? It did for me, but was wondering if it worked the same for everyone else.

    Currently 10.2.1.1555 does not support the * just once * and * always * options when launching certain things... hopefully in next leak or official os it would be their.. and yes the apps would open active frame..be it bb app or android.. the os like that only.. but from the launcher if you open gallery or camera or people.. it won't open in a new active frame.. it would use the same frame that of the launcher. . Give it a try..!!

    Glad you are excited about it, just a word of caution, using launchers have briken the Andtoid Runtime for some people. So be sure to revert back to original launcher before uninstalling any new launchers

    1. You didnt mention the WIDGETS. Get some widgets on those homescreen of yours (in launcher). Lke calengoo, evernote, recorder, etc

    2. Login using your google account: Follow this post
    Login to your google apps after installing the Google Play / Account apks given in this link. Get GMail to work and include its widget.

    3. Login into GMaps using the apk provided, and sync your starred location, get google voice navigation, and update your location to google servers (location history reporting). v6.4 for google maps works for me.

    4. Make your phone speak back to you, make full use of Pico TTS installed on your phone, download any Text to speech client (few kb in size) and make them speak your documents and texts using Android's builtin Voice. Use Moon Reader apk to read out your ebooks. I have been trying to install new voices, but right now, none are working.

    While I'm always glad to see people enjoying their devices.. I have to just say what others have already said.... it's just a launcher. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

    We all know it's just a launcher.. but if you can showoff in front of your friends who say BlackBerry sucks.. it's like a punch on their faces.. coz we got better android than them..!! And that was the whole point of my thread..!! I have already mentioned about the launcher thing.. read comments on 1st page..!!
