    Online it says

    Improved Android Application Support: Includes Multi-Window Applications, Camera Support and In-App Payments. We all love a richer app experience, and with the improvements to the Android runtime, thats just what youll get. Running the applications in separate windows allows you to multi-task between Android apps easier, and in-app payments will make it easier for you to enhance your app content. Game on!

    There have been hundreds of Android apps ported to QNX and are available in BlackBerry App World. There's no way to tell if theyre android apps until you launch them and see they're running in the Android player.

    You can also sideload Android apps.

    You have been able to since 2.0 was released. There are a number of Android apps in Appworld. It's just hard to tell them from native apps.

    You can also directly sideload them to your device using a PC or Mac. For more info on sideloading, please visit the sub-boards.

    And welcome to the forums.

    How about Bridge over Wifi? How does that work?

    If you don't have a PC, you're stuck with the selection in Appworld. Nothing can be done about it.

    Bridge over WiFi works by using Wifi to speed bridge up, provided both devices are on the same network. You still need BT turned only but it will only he used to establish the secure connection. Wifi will handle the rest.

    Why do they always come out when an OS drops??? NETFLIX IS NOT COMING TO THE PLAYBOOK!! Please do some research before asking....

    Like it has been said, some apps are sideloaded (from PC) or downloaded from appworld, and you cannot tell until you download if they are android apps or not.

    Thanks for joining CrackBerry TODAY....

    Playbook does not access the android market and never will

    When will they quit asking about every android app under the sun? Some sideloaded apps work and some don't some only work marginally. There are android apps in app world but not the ones everyone wants.

    They are both free so download them yourself and see for yourself --- and stop asking stupid questions over and over again.
