    Hey everyone

    Im getting my Classic tomorrow and i am going from a iPhone 6 and i am using instagram all the time.

    So my question is how are the apps.
    Instagram, eBay, Facebook, Aftonbladet, Blocket, Spotify, podcaster.

    Anyone that can shine some light on this?

    Best regards

    Not exactly sure what you're looking for here....They work.

    Instagram - Works, though you might need a specific build.
    eBay - Works as well as the Android version works.
    Facebook - It comes loaded on your phone... it works as good as Facebook works.. it's a crap app across the board anyway.
    Aftonbladet - Never heard of it.
    Blocket - Never heard of it.
    Spotify - Works as good as the Android version works.
    Podcaster - Never heard of it.

    The majority of these apps have been pretty well discussed across several posts already, you can see the feedback for a lot of them just by looking around.

    Firstly check BlackBerry world if you look for an app. If you won't find it, then you need an android as "substitute". You can directly download the .apk files via the browser or get them via an app store (amazon app store or snap).

    You'll need to install "Snap" to get all the apps you listed.

    Facebook is native (as Bla1ze wrote), you should get the rest via Snap!

    Here's the how to:

    If the newest instagram build won't work, get this one (6.2.2):

    Any further questions? Enjoy your classic, it's a nice device that gets things done!

    The instagram through snap worked for me. At least I think it's the latest one...

    Some of the Android apps you won't get notifications for. I don't with instagram anyway!

    I dont think its as simple as "search blackberry world" - unfortunately many of the apps are unofficial and are named differently than the app you might be seeking.. igrann being a prime example... when it works it is far better than the instagram app, but it is missing a couple features and is currently in a broken state. you'll likely want both. I had to upgrade to the 1154 leak to get the android instagram app to run....but am I ever glad I did!

    Hey Bla1ze,

    I have the latest version of Instagram from Snap but the crop feature is bizarre. Basically doesn't really allow me to see what exactly is being cropped on my pics. Do you know if this is an issue with the Classic itself or am I missing something else? Not sure if anyone knows what I'm talking about with the crop issue but maybe someone else has tried it.
    Thanks!

    Just use a app called "device switch". Install it on both and follow the instructions!
