What are the apps you need?
Most companies are still eyeing BB10 and WP8 till the user base numbers reach the amount of people they find worth to develop for.

So if it is apps that are missing it isn't that there is a reason to "hate the phone" you actually hate the lack of apps
Not the phones fault, BlackBerry has tried to help and or pay to have apps made and it seems the app owners have declined. This is certainly the case for instagram.

I finally moved full time to my s3 as I can process credit card payments on it with an app and a intuit Bluetooth card reader...
Tools not toys? Yeah right, no chance ever of apps like that coming to BB.

I just moved to BB10. Started webOS, then to Android, then to BB10.
Google Maps. I have it sideloaded but it's definitely much slower and less responsive than on Android. The BB Maps app sucks comparatively. I frequently find important streets unlabeled until I zoom in very close. Google Maps, I've almost never had this issue. The sideloaded version is ok though. I'm fine with it.
Google Talk/Hangouts and Facebook Messenger are available but inferior on BB10. But it's actually ok.
Multi Alarm Clock. Sure there's apps for it but the highest rated one I found had ads and required you to pay to enable multi alarms.
Feedly. Sure there's other RSS readers, but Feedly has my info and I find it much nicer than the RSS reader I downloaded off of the app store.
Duolingo. Was brushing up on German... Would really like to have it...
Glympse. I actually used this a lot. When you leave to meet up with someone, Glympse them. It was EXTREMELY useful and I'm really going to miss this app.
Google+. Not super important though.
GoPro. I have a GoPro. This App would be VERY useful.
LINE. Ok, so I can side load it, but it doesn't work exactly well. Has some weird behavior, but it's ok. "Use BBM!" Except I know exactly 0 people with BBM so LINE is a bit more useful.
Pocket. I have it slide loaded, but again not quite as smooth. But it's ok.
SpeedTest. there's speed test apps but none quite as good as the one by Ookla. But I have it sideloaded and it works ok.
Starbucks. Not really necessary but it's nice to check my balance and see if I have any freebies coming to me.
Yelp. I used to Yelp everything. No Yelp app. Sideloading won't work.
Yahoo Fantasy Sports. It's ok if it doesn't work though since I haven't cared too much about it.
That said, I'm actually liking BB10. The app selection is pretty terrible though.Thanked by:
