    I don't believe Snap even works on 10.3.3, but if you still have the question after what @conite posted then I don't know what else to tell you lol.

    Need to add one more item to that list.

    "Works on OS 10.3.3.xxxx".

    Spoiler alert - Snap v3 doesn't.

    Yeah picture is from 2015, but I think it still clearly indicates Play Store's superiority lol

    Before Cobalt's Play Store.... SNAP was crucial to BB10 and the use of some Android apps. But Play Store brought more compatibility even without patching, with patching there was no comparison.

    But as others have said... if you are on 10.3.3, there isn't a choice. SNAP doesn't work on that version of BB10.

    The YALP Store app from F-Droid replicates SNAP's functionality and works with 10.3.3. https://f-droid.org/repository/brows...omin.yalpstore

    I use it now and it's basically on par with SNAP. You don't get Google play services, so all you have is a shopping and downloading interface.

    It gives you the option of logging in with a generic account, and I am doing that to avoid any chance of having my Google account banned. Of course, not using my own account means I don't have access to my paid apps, but in my case, most of the paid apps are android launchers, apps for adding gestures, custom icon sets, etc., so they're not necessary on my Q10 and Passport.

    I've been using Yalp since Feb. of this year WITH my google account. So far so good, but I am aware that could change at any time. It does everything that I need it to do, including archiving older app versions which is important for me. However, I have no great need (yet, anyway) for apps from the store as I only have a few that I use regularly.
