    I've just had to change my BlackBerry for another Q10 (yes I know).
    On the old phone I had Royal Solitaire that I downloaded from a link on here. Now I find the only way I can get it is from Google Play.
    I can't use Google Play, my phone isn't recognised by it, and try as I might I can't add it.
    Is there anywhere I can download a free version of solitaire that's not Google Play or even BlackBerry store?

    I tried to download from the link, but when installed I get 'trying to log in' then it just hangs there.
    I did ask to be able to download solitaire directly, not from a playstore.
    Can anybody help please?
    BTW, I don't see a reply box below the reply to my original post.

    Install Yalp, a Play Store client.

    I would pick one from BBW store but here's a good Android version for BB10: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/de.t...eld.solitaire/

    P.s. You don't have to install FDroid for any apk, just scroll down a bit to the app version and tap "Download apk".

    Really sorry for the error, I am on a Q5, which is obviously on BlackBerry OS not android. My mistake. Adroid apps don't work on my Q5

    FYI I can't get on BBW either. It could be that I don't have WiFi, and only connect using data.

    Well the android solitaire I've linked to will work on a Q5 providing your OS is up to date.

    The Q5 is a BB10 phone and it’s capable of running some Android older apks just ART 4.3 or previous.

    Then you won't be able to use BlackBerry World until you are able to work with a PC.

    In the meantime, load Yalp which I linked to above. It will allow you to install some Android apps.

    Sorry I couldn't get Yalp to work either. It just kept going round and round asking for updates (probably the same problem as BBW) as it also said it was logging on with the 'credentials' it had.
    Anyway the good news is I have downloaded the simple solitaire! Now I have to work out how to play it as it's very different to Royal Solitaire.
    Thanks for all the help.

    Use your own google credentials. It will work fine.
