    Why there are some apps and games available for Q10 but not available for passport? For instance angry birds and tunein radio are available for Q10 but not for passport.

    Mostly because it's an abandoned app.. dev would have to check something in the vendor portal to make it available..

    To their defense, some apps don't scale properly between both screen sizes.. so the dev would have to redo it ..

    But at the point where bb10 is, for a free app, I'd unlock it and let it be used "as is"

    It may be because of the Passport's higher screen resolution.

    Tunein radio is available in Amazon app store for passport. And work pretty well.

    I think angry birds is also.

    I have to disagree with the TuneIn Radio app working well. I find it to be painfully slow. But older tune in apps, before the theme was all green, they seem to work well. I'm using 7.3 pro and it works perfectly

    I was referring to BBW with a native app availability.

    Understood. I own both a q10 and passport myself so I am in the same boat. And the fact of the matter is it comes down to the screen resolution. If you can get your hand on the. Bar for the apps your missing, they will install, but they won't scale properly. However most android versions do scale properly because of the many different size android screens

    Just to clarify re: TuneIn, it is the Android version that has poor streaming performance - at least that's been my experience with the app on my Passport. The native BlackBerry App works great on my wife's Classic, leaving me envious that I cannot find a way to get it on my Passport. Rad.io and Nobex are pretty good though, so I'm don't think I'm missing much.

    I know. If you want to pm me with your email I can send you the 7.3 apk. It doesn't have the performance issues of the later versions of TuneIn.

    Most of these apps that are Q10 only (and not Classic/Passport) are such because the Q10 was the only 1:1 screen device the last time the developer bothered to check BlackBerry World.
