    Thanks so much for Meeting Grabber, fabulous app, just want to know how long a session can be? I was also able to delete a session by going to the Air Browser app, selecting Documents where Meeting Grabber shows up then deleting each file in the specific session, then when I return to the app, that session no longer exists in "Saved Sessions".

    Still works ok as newsreader (RSS) and absolutely no faults for playing video or music. The screen is a better size than most phones for video consumption. I just load it up with music and videos prior to any trip (or even if I'm commuting by train for that matter).

    I wish I could still browse web effectively but right now it is not even speed issue, most sites don't render properly.

    The same as when it came out for my requirements which are email, weather, news, banking, shooting with both cameras, great screen, speakers. I am not much of an app user. To make it relevant currently for online use, I have the 32gig 4G LTE, so the faster processor makes the Playbook much faster both off + on line. When using it at home I always use it AC with the rapid charger (everything works better with AC power), I have 50 meg. service from my ISP, I use a wi-fi range booster, + with the Dolphin Browser, I can still access most things Google, especially You Tube.

    I use one of mine as a radio or music player in my workshop area.
    The speakers sound much better than an android tablet I also have, and if I want I connect to a set of external powered speakers.
    I use the Neutron player app and have been very happy with it. Plus it is still being updated by the developer.

    Unfortunately you'll probably get some more smarta$$ answers like above. IMO if the PlayBook still works and there is an app still available that allows you to keep using it... why not.

    Typical prices?

    I have started using it again because of an app - meeting grabber. It's on app world, designed as a native app. It allows me to to do video recording, audio recording, take pictures and make notes in one app. Comes with a calendar. Saved sessions are easily accessible by date, I use it in conjunction with another app - QfileExplorer, which makes it easy to find, view and delete sessions.
    My work involves a lot of site visits, and I can use the playbook now to make a comprehensive record of everything I need very easily. There may be similar apps on other tablets, but since the playbook is so cheap and robust I see no need to get anything else. I am in the process of buying up old 64 gig ones so I have a supply before they disappear altogether.

    Neutron is a native paid app and is available in BlackBerry World until that shuts down in 2019.

    I am still using it to play mp3 from my Qnap server. Using qfile which runs ok-ish to access the files. It's version 1.0.10.1228. Maybe someone uses something newer that runs more stable?

    Enjoy that function while you can because it will be over in March of this year. The video service will be shut down for the PlayBook.
