    Default BB10 APPs?

    Hi All,

    Did anyone try to repackage some of the popular apps from Android OS to BB10?

    I want to know if some apps like Skype, Whatsapp, Tango, and Viber will work on the Dev Alpha.

    If anyone did this can you share?

    Thanks

    Default BB10 APPs?

    Is BB10 supposed at launch to be natively compatible with android apps? Or do they need to be repackaged/repurposed to work with BB10?

    I ask because one of my biggest hesitations with BB is the potential lack of some major apps from the android and iOS stables.

    Thanks!

    More than likely, some of these apps use use the Android C++ NDK, which doesn't seem to be fully supported by the Android Player. Apps that use the NDK tend to crash on the PlayBook.
