    Hello,

    Is there any app in order to view a *.txt file, i.e. a (LaTeX) *.tex file ??

    Or, even better, does LaTeX run on the passport ?

    Thank a lot indeed !!!

    I haven't heard of anything native, but you could try finding something in the Play Store: http://forums.crackberry.com/android...ctions-985344/

    Thanks, but sorry.. I have decided NOT to install android on my passport.. hehe

    Indeed, today I tried maps.me instead of google maps, and I was soooooo happy. Maps,me is GREAT for navigation.

    Have you tried Helium in BBWorld?
    It claims it works with latex files, among many others. It's 8.99 CAD though.

    Sorry to break this to you, but Maps.Me is an android port. However, I like it too. I don't use Google Maps either.

    You could try overleaf.com and see if it works in the Passport browser.

    Check Helium. I think that's the most powerful editor on BlackBerry world.

    You mean, that I have installed android on my passport and I don't know it? I have NOT installed the Cobalt's runtime ...

    You can install android app without Cobalt's patches. But with Cobalt's patches more android app will be working on BlackBerry 10.

    FYI:
    BB10 has Android runtime out of the box. that's why it allows you to install android apps.

    Cobalt's apps are just apps. Playstore etc. But you already have android runtime in your phone. straight after boot up

    best way to be sure:
    restart the phone and immediately start the Maps.me. You'll see the black background and green bar loading - that's the android player/runtime loading

    It does actually. Found this out a few weeks ago -- works great on my Passport.

    You can disable that through parental control and it disappears from your phone. I don't know how but none of my two passports have the Amazon Store app on their screens.
    However, I don't think you can disable the android runtime.

    The Android player has been part of the OS since before the Z10 launch (PlayBook OS 2.0). Only in OS 10.2.1 though did actually using be less painful than pulling teeth.
