    Got my z10 recently. Is a good phone but without the android apps. It looks a little dull.
    So i installed the playstore, Snap as everybody suggested and got the apps downloaded (Sideloaded). But the problem is that none of the applications are working reliably with my z10. B612 crashes. Facebook(Android) and Messenger (Android) don't even start. And the rest of the apps lag too much and eventually crash. Is there anything missing? Like an Android Runtime? How to get my android apps to work reliably with my cell?
    If this one problem is solved, I'll love my z10.
    Help me

    The Android runtime you have is as good as your going to get...updates to it are unlikely.

    Snap is helpful as far as access to Google play but use Cobalt's Google Play service. It will open a few more options for you.



    Also with the most recent OS there is a glitch in Android runtime so if you are on it you'll need to sideload the following bar files

    The Android Runtime on your BB phone is falling behind. More and more Android apps will require a later version of Android then what is provided on your Z10. This situation is highly unlikely to be addressed by BB, and will surely only get worse. I have Messenger working, but an old version of it that is compatible with older versions of Android OS.

    Most of the Android apps I need still run fine, but it's only a matter of time before I will be stuck on older versions of them to maintain compatibility. If there are a significant number of apps that you require that are only available in Android versions, you would most likely be best served by an Android based handset.
