    I've had the following bug since the beginning of BlackBerry 10 and it's so annoying.

    Basically, when I open an android app (a landscape app/game) after a restart, there's a huge black bar at the bottom that will only go away if you close the app and reopen again.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open landscape android game
    2. Swipe down from top and press "hide bar"
    3. Restart phone
    4. Open that android game

    It's so annoying and I'm surprised I haven't seen people mention this.

    I just followed your instructions to replicate and could not produce your results. I only have the one game and I'm on the latest (I think) OS.

    I guess it's just my device, strange.

    I'll post a screen shot later

    It happens to me also,even if just with some apps/games. For example, if I open Candy Crush Soda after a restart, the black bar appears and then disappears after a couple of seconds and the game is opened 'full-screen'. If I open CoC though..Black permanent bar is there after a restart! :-P It is not that annoying,given I restart my phone a couple of times a month...
    P.s. Q5 here,with 10.3.1 official

    Does anyone know whether or not it's an app developers job to handle that or BlackBerry's runtime?

    It sounds like a third-party responsibility based on this thread.

    Nope, seems like a runtime issue. It happens to all games in landscape mode.

    What device are you using? If it's a pkb device, then that's probably why

    When you say every OS to date, does that include 10.3.2 builds?

    Yes, that's what I'm on now. I've had the problem since 10.1 I believe

    Depends on the game. If the coder is intelligent enough to check for display dimensions during the splash screen, it should fix itself without having to close the app. Mind you most android game coders aren't that smart.
