    Not sure what the issue is.. it's on Amazon and it works / looks fine on my Passport. Looks rather great to be honest given that widescreen format.

    It's one of my Go To apps on my Passport in my "travel" folder. Works fine other than the Splash screen on start-up looks a little off. The application itself is really nice on this wide screen.

    It's on BB World and says it supports the Passport... it seems to work fine although the text is now poorly laid out. With that being said you can also use the Amazon app which appears to be exactly the same per Bla1ze.

    Just seems a bit squished at some place. Didn't think to use Amazon.

    The person that replied to you doesn't know what they are talking about.

    When bb10 first launched, I noticed xe was a stolen android app in BlackBerry World.
    I contacted xe telling them to submit their Android app officially. They got back to me and said they they had no plans on making an app or submitting for BlackBerry, but would look into it. Emailed me back a week later to say they they planned on releasing a native app. The app released and it was bare bones. I asked then if they were going for feature parity and it on my took them another month or so for the bb10 app to look and feel great.

    I do hope xe continues to support the native app. Its well made

    Xe even did BlackBerry a solid one and didn't put ads on the bb10 version.

    Is the native xe app not available for the passport?

    Off topic: Rad.io is another app that is better on bb10 than android. Android has limited stations and you have to pay for the rest of the catalogue.

    There is no native app, they're all Android versions and the one on BBW hasn't been updated in a while, which is why I said to use the Amazon version if you're looking to use it on the Passport.

    The one in app world definitely isn't an android port. It hasn't been updated in a while.. but I don't see much(anything?) the android app offers over the native one (except ads).

    I've never had a problem with the native app on the z10 (regarding bugs etc). Judging by the above screenshot, the native app does indeed have scaling issues on the passport.
