    Welcome to the world of BlackBerry!

    First thing you should do is update the OS on your Q10 to the latest.
    Then you would set up your account to sync with your google mail.

    The only thing you won't be able to install is chrome, other than that, feedly's android app is working fine on my OS 2758 from Sprint even though I am not on Sprint network.

    1. Run the software updates. Most of the providers already pushed the latest OS
    2. Run all the updates from BlackBerry World

    These 2 steps will give you working device

    3. Load Amazon store for the beginning. Go to Amazon Web site and download the apk file and open it from saved location. You will find most of the apps you need.

    For Google play store you will need to install snap on your q10. Click on the link below and follow the step by step instructions and your done in no time. You will need a computer and plug your phone in via USB.

    Evernotw is on BB10. Dropbox (as well as Box) is practically built in, both can be easily accessed via its apps and with in the file manager (also built in).

    Most apps that require Google services won't work through side loading.
