    The user can't complaint still means users will always complaint, believe me I know this from experience and once again, is not as easy as you want it to be.

    But hey, you said it already, you know better than developers.

    Point taken.
    MLB at bat is blocked for the Passport. I did a transfer from my z10. So it works. Works pretty well.

    BlackBerry has few native apps as is so this practice is adding insult to injury.

    And yes, if I test an app on the Passport and find out that it works, yet the developer has not tested it on a Passport then I would know better than the developer. Doesn't make me smarter, just that I have tested it.

    Why any developer would want to block their app from the flagship device is beyond me.

    Not a developer and would not know how to begin, but can see that they would not want their inbox full of complaints about an app. Trouble is these days too few people will take responsibility for their own decisions having had their hands held and been nannies right through school to the extent that a few make it through to a simulation of adulthood and still want their backsides wiping

    Passport or Z10, whichever is nearest

    Another option is to use the browser and go to tunein.com and search the station you want. Then add that shortcut to your homescreen. I've done this for a few stations I listen to and have them in a separate group on my passport. I know it's not an app but it works just as well for listening purposes. Till the dev tests and signs off the app this works for me.

    Native sucked. The android app is actually better.

    So why you buy BlackBerry?

    If you want an android apps just buy android device.
    Very simple. Very logic.

    I meant the Tunein app. There are local stations I couldn't get on native app that appear on the android app.

    I've tried the android app and I did not like it over the native application. But I did not have problems finding stations that I was looking for

    If the app is naturally blocked for the passport, go over and use xSacha's tool and take a look at the .bar files he's posted up.

    Just sideload the TuneIn app .bar file and it should work OK.

    Most apps just naturally blacklisted the new devices if the developer didn't make sure it worked by a certain date!

    I haven't tried sachesi cascades yet (not sure if this is the same as the sachesi for BlackBerry app) but perhaps this may help.

    Exactly I had the same issue with Apollo but I found a CB forum that a had a bar file posted (maybe it was a link, don't remember).

    Native apps are in my experience much better but then again I'm on Q10SQN100-2/10.2.1.3253 so that could be the issue.

    I don't have the bar file. Fortunately at the time I was able to download the tunein app via sachesi for BlackBerry.

    Just clarifying, you're going to try installing a .bar file directly from your phone?

    If that's the case, you're going to have a baaaaaad time!

    I download Tune In radio with Snap.

    Works?
    Yes.

    Slow?
    Yes.

    Akward to use on BlackBerry Passport?
    Yes and no.

    I rather bought a cheap android phone, an Acer Trio E700, which runs all my app needs 100% well.
    The only thing I miss from it is the large screen and the keyboard.
