    I recently switched to BlackBerry z10 from samsung galaxy s4 and I am trying hard to convince myself that BlackBerry OS10 is better than android.
    BlackBerry is so complicated. I surfed and browsed through CB and I still dont know what is side loading snap.
    Cant they just keep things simple. I am 19 and all my friends use android or ios.
    Every BlackBerry user tells me that its the best. Please give me some reasons to stay because I want to. And please tell me what the hell is snap? !! .. ty

    Snap is a Google Play store for the BlackBerry 10 OS.

    Sideloading is loading a BlackBerry 10 file [.bar] onto the device. There are a number of ways to do this, I personally use Sachesi. Here's a guide on sideloading.

    It can be found HERE

    You're also able to download and install most apk files [Android] onto your Z10 as well.

    Start getting used to the device and the OS so you have your own reasons to stay or leave.

    Snap is the step brother of Google play store, you can download most of the android apps available In Google play store from snap.
    Side loading is required because it is not available in BlackBerry world.
    Many advised me to side load snap but its not my cup of tea,so I m happy with whatever BlackBerry world has to offer, I even don't like using Amazon app store, I get most of my requirements in bbw only and I m more than happy.
