    I can't seem to find how to sideload/download android apps to my new blackberry. I'm sure it's incredibly simple but for the life of me I can't figure it out.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks

    Download PlayBook Google extension and install. Search for "snap" here at CB. Download snap (latest version). Open PlayBook Google extension. On your BlackBerry, go to settings>security and privacy>development mode. Turn on development mode. Plug BlackBerry to your PC (follow the steps on the snap thread here at CB. Sideload snap. Restart.

    You can now open snap from your BlackBerry device and download android (apk) apps.

    Note: before downloading android apps first go to app manager > installing apps > and turn on allow apps from other sources to be installed.

    Hope this helps. Cheers!

    Easiest ist to install Amazon App then search for the Apps there.
    Here's the download link for a german site
    https://www.amazon.de/gp/mas/get/and...UvbUpU10379639
    (to give you an idea)
    Download into your phone in the download folder once done, click on the .APK.

    But not all those Apps work fine on Q10... Trial and error-experience.

    Google play can't be installed on our BB.

    You can also download an .APK-File from any site, but you have to trust the site, the app developer and turn on the permission to install 3rd party app/foreign source (you'll be prompted)...

    Good luck!
