    PLAYbook is junk and i'm gonna burn it. I bought it to do 2 things FACEbook and Ebay and it sucks at both. I dealt with my phones that have struggled right out of the box to do simple things like load a web page,(it loves the message "uncaught exception net rim browser daemon ### is not responding process terminated) but no more. I'm done. Now I understand why BB is on the brink of implosion. I have stuck it out for years, but if i can't get simple stuff done on brand new equipment, i'm out for good.

    You just bought it brand new....right out of a sealed box? Mine is nearly two years old with no problems. The hardware was never that robust, but it always does the job I ask. Keep in mind this is a 3 year old device.

    I'm not sure the particular issue that you're describing has anything to do with any "brink of implosion". Perhaps some more info would help others to help you, but it doesn't seem like you posted here for that.

    It will not list on ebay, (if i had known there was no ebay app i would not have bought it) and in facebook constant error messages. Brand new out of the box.

    I'm guessing you never bothered to Google the error message like I just did and found what is probably the solution in the first link I read.

    Skip the pad and get a Z30. It is a totally new Operating System not based on Java. It has the best browser on any mobile and can run many Android apps.

    Why do you need an app for ebay? You're on a screen that can display the web site and thus doesn't really need any app that simply re-arranges the information for a smaller screen.

    How would an app affect speed? Does the app install a faster processor?

    You mean you've never bought something brand new and had to deal with an issue of some sort? Especially something software related? Seriously?

    Not 100% sure, but don't we have a thread for folks that are leaving BB?

    I'm being sarcastic, yes we have a thread for people leaving.

    You just bought a 3 year old End of Life unsupported tablet and you're surprised that you're having these "issues"?!

    The stock Facebook app on PlayBook stopped working years ago as it was rarely updated. However the website works very well and so does a particular version of the Android Facebook app if you sideload it (I forget which version but just Google it).

    There may also be a version of the Ebay android app that runs well on PlayBook when sideloaded, but as others have said the website works really well in the browser so why do you need an app?

    "Needing an app" for everything is a very Apple way of doing things, because they make the Safari browser in iOS so crap. Sometimes I think they do that on purpose to make you have to resort to going shopping in the App Store, where they want you to spend money on things you don't really need while you look for the thing you went there for in the first place, all because the browser can't cut it.

    I guess all I can say is that if you bought a 3 year old device, that never really caught on to begin with, and has been sold at bargain prices in blow out sales for a long time now, and you didn't actually check to see if this device has the specific app you want (BB is not known for lots of apps to begin with) because that's one of only 2 reason you're buying it........then that's on you.

    The only question is: why are you here, if you're "out for good"? You seem still pretty "in" to me...

    so the app quit working and no updates that makes me want to stick it out. I did sideload the ebay app and it will not finalize a listing.

    not only, the fact that it would bridge with my torch is another., but now i see why it "never caught on" crap rarely does.
