    Playbookers,

    Is it still possible to covert APK files to BAR files and have them install and work in the Playbook? I'd like to load Chrome and a few other App's, but so far it seems daunting if not impossible. And I don't want to mess up my P.C. doing it.

    Thanks.

    Doesn't this still work using the Chrome plugin from the PC? DDPB I think? That said I don't think Chrome would work on the Playbook as it needs Google services.

    i doubt you will get many apps to work due to the hugely outdated runtime. chrome to my knowledge never worked

    Correct, Chrome never worked.

    Agreed with others -- very few Android apps would work on the PB. They'd have to be supported on Gingerbread 2.3.3 and even then...

    There are still sites out there with playbook bar files for lots of apps. GoodEReader used to be a good source but I haven't checked it in a while.
