    Hi all,

    I recently bought a Priv, and although 95% of things are going swimmingly (minus a small issue with the screen randomly turning off immediately after wake with the power button anywhere from 2-10 times a day), I've come to realise that I prefer the form factor of a non-slider, along with a few other reasons why I think I'd probably prefer it. However, I won't get into all that as I'll end up rambling...

    The only android apps I would consistently need are Whatsapp (as they're killing support for BB10 and 7 come the end of 2016- I assume the android version will work no issue), Telegram, and my banking applications. So, my questions are;

    a) Do Whatsapp and Telegram run well on the Passport? Emojis aren't important so long as all scales correctly and I can read/ respond to messages without issue and

    b) does anyone have any experience with the Metro Bank (UK) and Nordea (Sweden) banking apps? It's not a huge deal breaker- so long as they scale correctly enough so that I'm able to log in and check my balance(s) every few days I don't care how they look aesthetically.

    I guess the crux of the matter is: do android apps run sufficiently, and is the scaling of most apps correct?

    Thanks in advance, and any help is greatly appreciated.

    There will some android app the will work and other that won't. Do a search for Cobalt. He has a thread on installing Google play store on the BB10.

    Whatsapp works fine on my passport (until it will be discontinued). I am hoping that there will be a replacement by then. As regarding the bank apps: you can always use the browser instead.

    Good to know, thanks- and yes, hopefully I'll have at least moved some people to Telegram or BBM. And that's true, though if the apps work it's a bonus.
