    Because its a whole different operating system. A BB10 app is radically different from a BB7 app. Developers aren't just tweaking a few things and sending it out, they have to basically re-build the whole damn thing from scratch. So a lot of dev teams that are small or busy have yet to finish off the BB10 versions of their apps.

    Default BB10 Missing Apps

    Blackberry should have made sure their native apps are on there though. No travel or podcast app is a disappointment to me. The device itself is great though so I hope they sort those apps soon.

    Apps have to come first or the device has to come first. Some app developers came first, some didn't. One devs see that the phone is coming first given their perspecitve, they will join in.

    Interesting - I thought RIM knuckled-under to law-enforcement pressure and kicked Trapster off AppWorld? Did they rescind that?

    WhatsApp has been confirmed as coming out with a BB10 app, we just don't have a timeframe yet.

    Some people have reported successfully side-loading the Android version, if you can't wait.

    Same thing with Google Maps.

    I just received an email from UberSocial support to say that they will be porting their Android app over soon. No more info, simply a one line reply!

    Dropbox is built into the OS and works vary nicely. I have found you can access dropbox from most applications.

    To use your favorite cloud storage services, please use PlayCloud 10 available in the BlackBerry World.

    If cloud service missing just request it, and I'll add.

    A hugely painful one for me -and a deal-breaker- is that there isn't a professional grade Jabber-XMPP application. Ouch. Sadly I will have to return my Z10 because of that. "Beem" is there but I just can't make it work the way Beejive used to work on the BB Bold 9900.

    Oh and the Kindle app is there, but is buggy - stays "loading" in the home screen half the time.

    I have contact info for these and many others in a thread I created. I have got responses from almost all of them, some saying their apps are in development, some saying they are essentially taking a wait-and-see approach with BB10, some just flat out saying they have no plans to support BB10 at all. I would suggest having a look, and fire off an email to the ones you're interested in. This is the only way that developers will see there is interest in BB10 and invest resources into it:
