    Yes there are some good quality apps imo and you don't get the clutter of 10k knockoff apps and like everyone else hopefully more to come.
    I think rim has an opportunity to differentiate itself from the competition by keeping appworld to good quality apps neatly organised with a friendly UI.

    I side-loaded RockPlayer Lite to watch videos because I really need a player that bookmarks. I seldom watch a movie or TV show beginning to end in one sitting. But this android app is a bit finicky on the PlayBook. Any native BB apps that'll bookmark a video?
