    The best thing we who own and enjoy our PlayBooks can do to get more support for them is to download lots of apps from BlackBerry World to our PlayBooks. I'm not saying download any app, but instead to download any app you may use and to leave feedback on it. App downloads and feedback numbers denote overall usership and are the number one most important factor in whethor or not a platform is worth investing in or continuing to invest in and promote.

    From one BBPB fan to another, DOWNLOAD, LEAVE FEEDBACK, SHARE APPS YOU LIKE WITH OTHERS. BB10 isn't coming, but with enough support, we can still get some fun updates.

    Well said! Together with Save the PlayBook, I'm working on a list if 'gold standard PlayBook' Apps & Games that when published should help new and existing PlayBook owners understand how useful this device can be. We need the community to input then agree on maybe top 50. Suggestions please!

    My favourite native apps:

    Kalemsoft Media Player
    Stereotube
    Book Reader
    Origami Browser
    Advanced Camera
    eGo Maps

    I would gladly purchase other apps if I didn't have the following issue (no one seems to have a fix):

    BlackBerry does continue to develop and update our PlayBooks and has. Did you not receive the latest Bridge update? Are you not aware of the continued Hub development for the PlayBook? I have no unrealistic expectations for what may come.

    I think BlackBerry does care. I lost Video Chat, Podcasts and several other icons when I updated the OS on my 4G LTE model from .1526 to .1753. I attempted to resolve the problem myself but was not successful. Since then, I have spent about 5 hours working with various levels of tech support over the past 2 weeks. Wiping, clean reloads and "workarounds" haven't helped, but today I'm awaiting a call from a BB engineer. Hopefully I'll get it fixed. If BlackBerry didn't care, I would have been brushed off and told "that device is no longer supported" long ago!

    I may be able to help. Don't want to thread jack, so send me a PM with what OS you have installed, and a brief description of what - if any - android apps you have installed.

    The PB form of Hub has actually been in two prior Bridge builds. Not many noticed.

    I can also help you with sideloading these bar files, if you're interested.

    I continue to use my Playbook with great enthusiasm. I am not an app junkie so i use my Playbook as a utility for email, banking etc. Apart from Skype, I would like to see a Playbook/iPad video chat app that makes full use of the superb Playbook camera, an app that both Playbook + iPad users can install, then we might see a significant pick up in the use of the Playbook.
