list of misssing apps I CANNOT do without
Went to carphonewarehouse store and had a play with a black BB Z10.
Went to phones4u store and had a play with a white BB Z10
Went to EE store and had a play with a 4G BB Z10
I love them all
RIM... BlackBerry to take my money BUT...
I can't buy Z10 until I get a few apps that I use every single day
And they are not available for Z10 as of today.
And I want Z10 now!
Any advice would be appreciated
I don't mind side loading , I don't mind alternatives as long as they do the job
1. OANDA fxTrade
2. MetaTrader 4
5. any decent offline satnav app

I don't know what SIPdroid is specifically but I assume it is some sort of generic SIP VoIP softphone.
If so, I see an app called "Taki" that is also a SIP softphone for BB10.
I see 2 other apps in your list that look like Forex trading apps, looks like there is a version of OANDA fxTrade for Playbook which may work on BB10, you can also go to Blackberry World and use the search term "forex" to search for others, I did see some.
I use Dropbox, sugarsync is just better, more flexible
There's oanda trading platform for PB but its a droid port. I have tried it on my PB, its not reliable enough.
I'll test Taki, seems promising
I am not bothered about skype, netlfix, instagram etc
I can wait
But I can't live without above apps and I am not prepared to carry two handsets with me all the time.
I am guessing I could even wait for a satnav and sugarsync some time,
but FX trading platform, reliable 3G SIP client and netguard (remote CCTV viewer) are a must

Navigation software with offline maps - ex. TomTom.
Can't afford the data roaming charges once I cross from Canada to US, don't want to waste data when at home, or be left without any navigation when traveling out of cell range (which is most of Canada.)
On my daily commute to work I can get traffic updates from my local radio station.

As I said in my other postings on different blog sites, they should have done it like Msoft. concentrate on 100 quality apps and launch with those. So they are 70000 craps, reviewers are having a field day. Who approves these craps anyway? I totally understand your dilemma, BB10 won't catch on until majority of current BB users can switch phones and enjoy their current apps on the new phones. Still no word on PB upgrade....

I am not a curret BB user, never had one.
Own playbook though
Being tired of android I'd love to switch to Z10 but I just can't jump BB10 ship without a lifebuoy

For example, there is some rumor that Microsoft is trying to block Instagram from being released for BB10 (see below), and you'd better believe that companies like Google are playing hardball when it comes to either offering their apps/products on BB10 (Google Calendar, Google+, Maps, Google Voice, etc etc) or strong-arming apps developers they have influence over to avoid BB10.

My problem is moving from my 9900 to Z10 and be left with my pants down. This is 2013, coming soon won't work. I paid a premium for a 64GB and waited faithfully, can't make these guys rich while we wait. They need to do much better. Again where is this list of 1000 apps from around the world that are so great?
The most popular FX trading platform in the world?
Arguably the best syncing service in the world
The Best Way to Store Stuff in the Cloud
offline navigation eg Nokia Drive, TomTom,
I guess a few guys have heard about it before
