    Snap, just read tutorial carefully. Honestly shouldn't take you any longer than 10 minutes. Merry Christmas!

    +1 for snap!
    \Have it, love it, use it every day.

    Simple to install, you just need sachesi, darcytools, etc, etc.

    simply plug your device into your OC, start mentioned program, sideload the .bar file.

    To many quirks for this to be easy for newbs to handle. I'm certainly no newb to sideloading and such, but installing and getting that method to work was a huge PITA. I do have it working finally, but man what a headache to get it working properly.

    The #1 reason I will still continue to use, and promote Snap.

    Too many quirks???
    Download sachesi and snap.bar
    Launch sachesi
    Plug usb cable to phone and pc
    Launch sachesi
    Go to install tab
    Darg and drop snap.bar
    Wait 5 seconds until it finishes
    Unplug.


    If you call that complicated...

    I'm on a Classic and just installed Snap. Amazing!

    My Passport should be here either tmw or Monday and I will no doubt install Snap once it gets here.

    Read the thread re: installation of Google App Store. A lot of folks had issues getting it to install *and* actually operate properly. And there are still issues when properly installed. Not a basic beginner's installation. I have been sideloading and doing some pretty intense stuff with my BB's over the years and I wouldn't call getting the Google Store installation to work as "simple" in most cases. Some people got lucky. It took me well over an hour to finally get operational. I'm sure Cobalt will improve both the install and operation in time and he did a super job just getting it to us in current form. But the simple fact is a lot of things in Google related apps from simple nags to total non functionality simply don't "play nice" with Blackberry.

    I installed Snap via the Chrome plugin and it was pretty smooth and painless. Bla1ze did a nice article about it.

    Isn't there an app that removes the Google Play dependencies? I believe you'll find a thread here on CB about it.

    I installed Snap using a combination Bla1ze's article and Agent Juicy's video on both my Z10 and Passport. When whole process was remarkably smooth and simple.
