    Picked up a 64GB playbook today. I have some questions for some of the knowledgeable folks on here.

    How can i import all of my contacts that i have on my gmail account?

    I'd like a twitter app. Which is the best one? I use tweetdeck on my galaxy s2.

    Thanks Neil

    Accounts: Email -> Setup Gmail account -> Advanced settings -> 'Sync contacts'

    Tweetdeck: I've created a 'Tweetdeck' app for the playbook. It is also available in the appworld

    Here is the tweetdeck app link : http://www.mediafire.com/?aj499vn8x6xso6n

    How to install: use DDPB (just google for it)

    Do you have to pay for the apps straight away or do you get a period of grace to see if you like the app?

    Some ones are paid, some have a free trial time. Use my twitter app to get the real Tweetdeck experience. Just download it from that link i posted. The appworld version from someone else is a scam. Dont pay $1 for it !!

    IS it a proper app or just a link for the browser?

    Its an app, that displays the webapp in its own (app)frame without any need of the browser.

    Because of that: It uses LESS memory and overall better Batterly life than using the (web)browser.

    Just give it a try !

    What is the Twitter app icon on 'pg2 of the PB homescreen ? Or should I say where does it go ?

    i haven't even bothered with it as I'm don't use twitter (nor facebook), as i have 2 email addys and numerous forums to satisfy my social networking urges

    I'm trying to aside load the apps into the playbook. I'm having trouble getting the java runtime to install on my computer.

    Is there a proper idiots guide to doing it?

    It might help folks answer your question if you specify which computer OS or version.

    And what goes wrong when you try installing it.
