    Let's share some user experience on which apps are currently compatible with the BlackBerry Passport screen.

    I don't own one yet, so I have nothing to share!

    I only have three apps installed from Snap as of right now and they are all working perfectly. No problems with the screen size.
    Android apps seem to be a lot smoother on 10.3 as well.

    Google Maps- The only thing you can't do is sign into your Google account.
    Tapatalk- works perfectly. I think I am going to completely switch to that instead of the CB10 app.
    Facebook Pages Manager- no problems. A lot smoother then on my old Q5.

    New or old? I find anything running a new version can't record. Says the camera isn't supported. Is that the case?

    Can someone with snap give Voxer a shot?

    Flipboard is such a pleasure to use on the Passport (once you do the zoom out thing).

    Also, for any Pharmacists out there, Lexicomp works well on the Passport and the screen size does wonders. Drug ID images are actually large enough to be useful!

    Wikipedia for BlackBerry works as well on my Passport as it did on my Z10 which probably isn't that surprising since it is mainly just text. It is native, has dark theme, and can be accessed/searched through BlackBerry Assistant. Way better than going through the browser in my opinion.

    Here it is
    This is the last version you can find on Snap, no need to zoom-in or out.

    Current Android (and other) apps best compatible with Passport screen-img_20141023_081720.png

    From Snap I installed:
    BlackVue - for my car camera, it's not perfect because it stretch view on full screen, but it works.
    Sygic satnav - altrough after every update need a little trick to go back to work again
    Don't really like Android apps for their poor power/battery management, had few installed on previous phone Q10 and they can eat battery really fast. Even those apps from BlackBerry World not "made for BlackBerry".

    Personally other then the Skype app, I haven't noticed poor battery drainage from any of the Android sideloads that I have.
    I leave Tapatalk and Pages Manager running all day in my active frames. Come time to charge my battery they have maybe used up 1.3%.

    I have looked at leaving BB over Lexicomp dropping support for BB devices, as this is an app I use on a daily basis in medical field.

    Wanted to upgrade to Passport but could find no-one locally with experience with Passport and Lexicomp.

    Any suggestions for a luddite on loading Lexicomp on Passport?

    My games work fine, including NeverMaze.

    Of apps I use, Audible, Kindle, and Endomondo are fine. Netflix works well, but it can be tricky to get widescreen output on an external display, hoping that's improved soon.
