    Not on a Classic, but on a Passport. The Kindle app isn't available to ALL BB10 users -- directly. You can get it by installing Snap, and downloading it from there. That's what I've done.

    Install Snap using Sachesi:
    1. Download the appropriate Sachesi version here: Sachesi
    2. Un-archive the exe file (currently a 7zip file)
    3. Put the exe file in a folder on it's own on your computer (it's a stand-alone program)
    4. Download Snap here: Snap Google Play Client
    5. Plug your device into your computer.
    6. Double click the Sachesi exe file to launch it. Enter your device password, if you use one.
    7. Click on the install tab.
    8. Drag/drop the Snap bar file into the window. You'll see a progress bar on your device and in Sachesi.
    9. When complete, unplug your device. You're done, enjoy.

    *** "Development Mode" is not required when using Sachesi.
    *** Unless you know what you're doing, do not mess with the other, advanced options within Sachesi!
    *** Settings > App Manager > Installing Apps > "Allow Apps from Other Sources to be Installed" must be enabled to install APK's.

    Still proposing Snap, even though we now have the genuine Play Store on BB10, like on the Priv?

    Snap is so incredibly outdated...

    OP, you can get Play Store here:

    Yes, it's been around since before your method, but is still reliable and works. Many find it less complicated than your patched Google Play Store method.

    Feel free to offer your method, but don't belittle the Snap method.

    I don't. But it simply isn't the best option. And installation is way easier than Snap. Did you ever try it?

    Yes, I have both installed. I use the Google Play Store for grabbing paid apps; Snap for the rest.

    And simplicity of installation is a debate we are not going to have again.

    You are right. The users shall choose, but for that they should know about both options. That's all I'm asking for.

    How can I install Kindle on a Blackberry Classic? It's not in Blackberry World. The Amazon store does not give it to me and says I have to go to Blackberry World.
    How does one use "Snap" or similar to get it? Never used Snap before. Elessar's instructions above are a bit fast for me - may I have a bit more detail?
    Urgent because my company is offering me one of its last Classics for free.
    Thanks.
