    more info : Viber latest version (3.1.0.1033) with debug token was installed and work well. No force closed.
    but I agree that native apps is better, because WhatsApp native app is my favorite one.

    YELP: Along the this line, does anyone have the YELP converted bar file that actually works on Q10-10.2.1047 running 810 runtime? None of the bar files on apk2bar or good e reader work. Can't find it anywhere. Thanks!
    Downloading the latest Google Maps here and will report back. currently running earlier version that works great! will leave both on and then pick the best.

    Agreed which is why I bought BeMaps

    I tend to try an support BB10 Developers too.

    That said, I don't like paying for apps (or paying more) that other platforms have for free. BBMaps has a long way to go to come close to what Google is providing, which is why you have so many Google Map Applications for BB10. This is good for fans of BlackBerry.... but for average consumers it is just another reason to go with the platform that has the original.

    It is an APK file and when I try to convert it on APK2BAR it puts out an error message that says:
    com.google.android.apps.maps_v7.0.2.700022113.apk
    Atypical error while converting .apk

    So--I guess this one is a loss for me at least. I have their last version on my Q10 and it works awesome!

    I'm not sure what you're downloading... But, the BAR file, IF opened with winzip or winrar shows that its a bar file that has been converted (ie. contains android and META-INF directories). Plus, several people have sideloaded it - which would not be possible without a conversion - if it was an apk file. Open an APK with winzip or wnrar and see the differing directory structure.


    Edit : OR are you using some outdated webbrowser like IE?

    Disclaimer: This is no way an insult towards BlackBerry Maps, it's more about the 4.2.2 runtime.

    Google Maps 7.0.2 (July 2013) looks beautiful and is buttery smooth on 2.0.1047

    You can find it on this site, no need for debug tokens, etc.: APK to BAR Converter :: Android APP Store – Blackberry Playbook & Z10 and Q10 Apps

    You can do a search for "maps" there, it will bring up a couple of 7.0.2 results, here is the one that I am using: http://69.162.109.42/Apk2Bar/bar/com....700022113.bar

    Note:
    -you need to know how to sideload
    -you won't be able to sign in, Google uses some kind of android account system on its devices instead of just asking for username and password.
    -beautiful and buttery smooth != no bugs

    Some pics for your enjoyment:

    Ok, two things -

    1) For those having issues with the download being an .apk or .zip file. You can't download a .bar file using Internet Exploder. It won't work. Use Google Chrome or some other browser and it will download the .bar file correctly. The file is fine, your browser sucks. Get over it.

    B) The OP showed a pic of "Street View". How do I get that? I can't find the Street view button anywhere or any way to do that. Help?

    You long press on an area to drop a pin:
    Google Maps 7.0.2 beautiful on 2.0.1047!-img_00000048.png

    A panel will appear at the bottom, drag it up, and click on the street view photo:
    Google Maps 7.0.2 beautiful on 2.0.1047!-img_00000049.png

    Btw: click on the icon at the bottom left and move around with you phone:
    Google Maps 7.0.2 beautiful on 2.0.1047!-img_00000051.png

    And here is another view you can have as well:

    The Google Earth option is not working for me.

    The satellite option is working and interestingly enough the roads on my property are not called out at all as they are shown wrong in the mapping option. Unfortunately the image in the satellite option is close to 4 years old.

    The frist time I've seen my helicopter landing area called out on any Google product. Wondering if this why I keep seeing unidentified flying helicopters circling overhead?
