    So I had a Z30 and it was pretty okay, but for work I decided to upgrade to a passport SE. I noticed that a lot of the apps on my Z30 were no longer available on the passport, ones I use for work, like Bloomberg, and also ones I use for entertainment, like Real Racing 3.

    I booted my z30 back up, and the apps are still available in the appstore on that model.

    Both phones have the latest software, and I can't imagine why both would have different programs available.

    This is kind of a **** off, since I was looking forward to running some of these games on the much more powerful passport, but I can't download them now.

    Is this a glitch or is there a good reason for this?

    I don't think it's the display ratio since the RESIZE feature for android apps works just fine...

    The developer has to explicitly allow the app per model.

    If you sideload the Sachesi bar file I think you can get around this issue. Basically gives you access to these apps that are normally restricted. I don't have a link on me but searching for Sachesi .bar should work.

    This used to be posted on BBW but got taken down by BlackBerry.

    Otherwise you can just download the Android versions of those games. You can adjust the screen size with Android apps by swipping from top.
