    It has been a while since I used a Blackberry device. There are a few must have apps that I use. Not a problem on iOS or Android. With the development of BB10 seems like I remember that on a Playbook I once had it was possible to install and run Android apps. Is the same still possible on a BB10 device and if so is it pretty much straight forward or does one have to jump through hoops like we did with the Playbook?

    Actually it is that simple but it is best to take the time to install the Play store first using Cobalt's method and have the Android Settings available so you can force stop those annoying android apps.
