will iphone apps work on playbook?
i think playbook is the only tablet that doesn`t support iphone apps,or any other apps from other devices
which sometimes can be really annoying thinking that,i`m a huge game addict and love playing gta and it works on all tablets except playbook
i admire blackberry`s independence of standing on its own feet but it would be nice to play any app that`s available for all the other tablets
i`m a blackberry fan,i have playbook and the bold 9900,and this is my question....
will we ever have apps like other tablets and phones? i`m not gonna change my phone if u say no (blackberry forever) but i want to play gta and other apps on my playbook/phone

This is a definitely YES! But you have to wait until 2113 when the Blackberry company acquired the troubled Apple Company following the launch of BB13 that rewrote the rules on the tablet - phone market and made all the Apple products obsolete. Then BB will port all the IOS legacy apps on the BB13 and voila! You have them on your PB!

Will iPhone Apps work on PlayBook's? No... same way, PlayBook Apps wouldn't work on iPhone or iPad... the Apps or games has to be rewritten to PlayBook OS for its to work in PlayBook's platform environment... exactly the same thing need to be done for PB Apps and games to work on iDevices... unfortunately, Apps and games are controlled by the developers themselves, so, they are the decision makers when rewriting their Apps / games to other platform other than the current platform they are supporting... but ofcourse it need a direct collaboration with the owner platform to give them authorization and tools... things like that...
