    Default Porting from Google Play

    Would anyone happen to know which apps work properly with the Z10 from Google Play? I was thinking of porting Temple Run, Instagram, GTA, Shazam and Ubersocial and try to install them on my Z10 / PlayBook.

    Temple run, GTA and instagram for sure won't work. There are a few other threads around here with partial lists, take a look in the BB10 specific forums.

    Default Porting from Google Play

    They use native android code. The only apps that can be ported are apps written in pure java. You won't see very many games or other CPU intensive apps being ported.

    Sorry Koz, but Shazaam stopped working on the PB some time ago (I think since 2.1 dropped).

    How about converting from BackBerry OS7? I want Ubersocial so that I can share over BBM.
