What can i do for a better playbook experience
Ok.... I understand this is a fan site similar to the android fan sites. My issue is would anyone know how to contact RIM. I'm not understanding having this tablet, but simple apps like Netflix, Twitter (all the different kinds), and a few other basic apps I get on my iPod and android devices, aren't available or free. If I wanted to use the net, only, I'd use my phone. I have a pretty large screen there. I like blackberry devices. I own the Bold 9930. So I like the idea of being able to Bridge them, but there are no apps other than bbm. How weak is that? I can't look at videos from my bold on my Playbook. the OS on the playbook is 18.104.22.16849. I like the fact that Blackberry got in the Tablet market but the reason they're fading away and will lose this battle is the same reason they're losing with phones. No apps. No good everyday apps. No really good free apps. Angry Birds is free in the android market and the apple app world. Why would we pay $5 for the BB version? If there was some way to get rim to see this I'd definitely send it to them. Thanks for reading

no more trolling, only warning you guys get. Either offer suggestions for good apps/games or different ways to enjoy the PB. If you cant do that then dont comment.

so not that it really matters, but I have over 100 awesome and high quality apps and games on my pb. I have fun drawings apps for my baby (lil painter, magic slate, babygo animals). I have great notetaking apps for work (evernote, groovy notes, sketchbook, scroodle, picinote). i have apps to read the news (glimpse, press reader, globe and mail, ottawa citizen etc), i have social media apps (blaq, facebook, proinsight) ive got a sweet app to track my stock portfolio (qfolio), for movies (cineplex, film), ive got vnc for my downstairs movie storage pc (imt vnc), ive got reading down solid (kobo, ereader), ive got tons of wicked games (machinarium, simcity, starfront, dead space). ive even got a fireplace for tbose romantic nights (fireplace hd). my pb even tells me when to take out the trash (ottawa trash). oh yeah - its wifi synced to my itunes (itunes sync) and wifi synced and mapped to my home network. oh yeah, its bridged to my work bb as well for mail and docs.
yeah i want skype and netflix.i want a pdf editor.
in the meantime, i think ill just sit back and watch the entire season of futurama and doctor who that i wifi dropped to my pb today, using the video player that seems to play anything. and ill do it with a battery that lasts all day, from 6am to midnight.
that works for me.

the rest of his post is just picking a fresh scab.
If you would like app suggestions lets phrase it in a more positive thread.
as for this thread... lets close it down and move along.

Maybe I'm missing something but I've read several comments on different threads about "not having Twitter". My PB came with it already loaded on it, at least I think it did. At any rate, I have it now, it works flawlessly. Maybe it is easier to complain than to look for it. Sad.
