    SideLoad BlackBerry 10 BARs and Android APKs to your BlackBerry 10 Device Over The Air (OTA)!

    https://sideswype.me/

    The app is created by the people behind MyBBOTA.com

    Does anyone know any further info about this app? It looks like a great way to sideload vs going through a PC, but I would like to get some feedback before downloading it. Did a search for it on CB, but came up with nothing.

    One thing that I have found while browsing the developers site. The app allows you to do a "test drive" which gives you 2 free credits that will allow you to sideload 2 apps for free. Once those credits are used, you have to purchase new credits at the cost of $0.99 for 10 credits, @2.99 for 25, and $4.99 for 50.

    If you actually do the math, the $0.99 is the best deal out of all of them. If you purchase 3 sets of 10 credits for a total of 30, it will end up being $2.97 for 30 vs the $2.99 for 25, and if you purchase 5 sets of 10 for a total of 50, it ends up being $4.95 for 50 vs the $4.99 for 50.

    Seemed like the best thing ever. But I read on the faq that you'd need to pay to get install credits

    Nothing bad about paying for it though - but then it could have been more fun to get into trial and error mode with OTA sideloads.

    I do see where the "value" may be missing in purchasing credits. The pricing has been updated and for $4.99 you're now getting 60 install credits. This change is reflected both in-app and on the FAQ.

    Thanks

    You just download the zip to your computer and run the exe inside and follow the instructions. Basically, plug your Z10 in, enable development mode and follow the prompts.

    Have you gotten this straightened out? Generally it is due to a typo in your credentials.

    As long as you've run SideSwype and used the information it gives you (tap to copy the password to prevent typos) you shouldn't have any authentication errors.

    You will have to find the newer camera bar and install it over the top of your current one.
