    Hello guys,

    Tomorrow I will get used (second-hand) BlackBerry Passport and this is first device with BBOS for me. Now I'm using android phone, so thats my question: what should I do to make my Passport fully useful. I just need working out browser that support as much sites as it's possible, one free GPS, Facebook Messenger and twitter applications and probably thats all I need right now. Maybe some tips for new BBOS user in this dark times for BlackBerry Passport devices?

    Use Messenger Lite and Kiwi browser (both Android apps).

    Install Yalp for access to the Google Play Store:

    The native Twitter app is marginally acceptable.

    Just to be accurate, the Passport operating system is BB10 not BBOS.

    Don't you need email? It is real email machine.

    As for browser, you might be disappointed as some sites are not displayed properly.
    But there is excellent Reader mode (in the native one) and keyboard is good for scrolling, - I use it in "landscape" mode with the keyboard on the right.

    GPS - do you mean maps? There are several threads about them. You probably should be OK with Osmand, Maps.Me, Navfree, just to name a few. But some offline maps might be outdated.

    No need. Use Yalp from above.
