    One of the very pleasant surprises provided by Passport for me is how well it runs Android apps. After a year on Q10 using 10.2 I did not expect much from Passport. I thought it might be slightly better due to larger screen and enhanced specs.
    It turns out all the Android apps I have found in various .apk sources work very well.
    I would like to ask you for recommendations of Android apps you use daily. Please be so kind as to keep in mind the filter to my request: I am not interested in games, mediaplayers, social networking apps, fitness apps and maps, dating and android versions of BlackBerry native apps. Other than these, what are some Android Apps you recommend? Please only refer to ones you actually use.

    Swedish bank apps: Swedbank, Swish and BankId. That's all for the moment.

    -- Edit --
    I forgot TEXT-TV, app for swedish news and sports.

    -- Edit 2 --
    So I assume my recommandation is localized apps for different services only available for your country as those may be hard to find in Blackberry World.

    -- Edit 3 --
    Realized I forgot one more. I use this led light for photography sometimes which is controlled using their app KICKLight.

    I think I've listed them all now :-)

    I use mSecure (waiting for Password Keeper from 10.3.1), Banking Apps, ES File Explorer (for some work), CamScanner and some games from Android.

    There are some banking apps which are more updated on Android than BlackBerry. These do not apply to Russia, of course.

    Several utilities such as NEST thermostat and smoke detectors, CHAMBERLAIN garage door systems, FITBIT device monitoring are on the top of my list. There are some travel apps that are additions to the Native or BlackBerry only apps. I am experimenting with Camera apps but have not had much success with the SONY versions. "Pay by Phone", WAZE (it's more updated on Android), "Focus@Will" (from their website), MWC2015 show app, RoboForm, and "Flixter" for movies and ratings.

    None. Allergic to android. I may carry an additional iPhone, if I needed apps.

    I have Hulu Plex NETFLIX Roku app and my local banking app installed. All from Snap. They all work very well. The Android experience has been much better on the Passport than on any of my other BlackBerry phones. I think the excellent hardware of the Passport is the reason.
