    Just noticed an advertisement on BlackBerry World saying that Skype moved to Amazon store and advising for an update, basically making Bb10 users to use the Android container. Could you please advise if there is a way to tell if an application is running in the Android container or is built for native built for BlackBerry 10 ?

    Android apps look for permissions during install, native apps at first run.

    Android apps also have the removable back bar when running them.

    Do you have an example with screen shots? Thank you. Could you please tell which the latest native Skype version and not the Android compatible one? Am running the 6. something. To me it seems the native BlackBerry 10 applications are asking for permissions too? Are the ones for Android with low quality graphics?

    There has never been a native Skype. It was always an Android port.

    That's why all these issues. Weird graphics, closes randomly. Would appreciate if someone could display some images with a way we could tell when we are running a native certified BB10 app and when it is an android one. Is there a way we could clear the registry for erased apps, or do a clean up after the un installation of Android apps?

    Download the Android Settings app. If your installed app is listed there, it is Android.

    You'll find it in the first post of this thread:

    Is there a way we could compile a list of original BlackBerry 10 applications, system cleaners, if any, included. Thank you. If I wanted Android apps I would have bought an Android phone. Even the Priv, but as we speak BlackBerry is d priving me and is turning into a thePriv(ed).

    No. A substantial percentage of the apps are Android ports. It's always been this way.

    Another way to tell if an app is Native or an android port is the native app will have a "Built for Blackberry" decal. The ported app will not have this decal. Evernote is a Native app.

    Yes, but more NATIVE apps do not carry that designation than do.

    The "Built for BlackBerry" designation was something people had to apply for and meet certain quality conditions beyond simply being a native app. The benefit was getting more prominent exposure on BBW.

    So does the fact that you have been using Android apps all along change anything?

    Better exposure never happened, though.

    How ignorant could I be to not know Skype doesn't have a native BlackBerry 10 client. I find it shocking.

    It takes a big man to publicly admit his ignorance.

    Yes. Yesterday had the chance to play with BBM video and compared to Skype it is a night and day difference. Probably will be able to clear the device of Android software. With the help of this thread we could tell the difference in between fake and real BlackBerry 10 software.

    Is BBM video being retired as well or is it just BBM meetings?

    Correct m if I am wrong, but I was under the impression that the Skype app was always an Android port even when it was listed in BBW (apk converted to bar back in the day that installing/sideloading apks was not possible).

    There has never been a native Skype. It was always an Android port.
    Edit: Just read this, Conite beat me to it.
