    Good news! You really can download apps that run on android systems straight to your the Z 10! I did and I am getting battery life that's just too good to be true!
    A few apps went sudden death on me AKA force closed and we'll sadly no call blocking app would work but I did find a battery all that did increase battery life that works and seems to not need to run in frame. I also found out that those that control data don't switch blackberry data on and off ( Sorry did not test all of em my phone ain't no testing ground).
    Weather apps work but Weather Bug dragged on my screen when switching screens,
    You mail works if you have an account with them download the latest version the old one don't work.
    If anybody has information about any call block app please share it with us. I found a forwarder that I may try to get up and running again I don't think any will truly work with our phones, I am on T-Mobile and if any forwarder will work I will try it in a heartbeat!
    I have some apps that put a notification message on my phone but that's about it as far as telling me it's up and running.
    I got some stuff that I had in my android that I used but they seem to be somebody else's build not the original stuff.
    What I have tried is rain alert app and it works but since it's the free version I can't set the time I want it to refresh.
    Again you can get much better battery life if ya have that kind of problem by downloading many of those apps instead of those at app world unfortunately I think the store has become infested with some lazy and or trifling imitation developers only interested in a buck or two and sell battery apps that didn't work on my phone.
    One seemed to be just a horribly written graphics app that just had a link inside it. Hopefully BlackBerry will look into this and kick them out.
    People download the store and try it, there's no need in us loyal blackberry users waiting on developers when we can go to the developers and show them that we too can put some money in their pockets IF they are willing to build some honest apps that truly function.
    And remember our platform is much easier to work with compared to android and it's multitude of platforms so it's a win-win for them if they come back.

    Snap native app is better and is non-intrusive. Google Play is also less risky in comparison.

    Dave we all take a risk every now and then and yes some of the blackberry apps carry risk to. Think about it, Why would BlackBerry give us the ability to run android apps in any way if the risk was really that bad?
    Trust me I'm watching my phone like a hawk.

    That's not my point. The 1mobile app is a notification spammer while Snap will leave you alone lol. I simply know that Snap works better. That's all I can say.

    Oh I see, I must be lucky I haven't got hit yet. Thanks for the heads up. I will probably remove it after I make a copy. I got another app I need to convert if it's not in the market that will stipple certain permissions away from apps that do that kinda thing.

    Plus you get a bigger library of apps because Snap is connected to Google play.

    Try removing the market but keep the link. I only see those messages when I downloaded something.

    Install an Android task manager like Ghost Manager. Open the app, tap and hold over 1Mobile and select "manage app." It should let you turn off all notifications for the app.

    Keep in mind though that this will block any new app updates that may be available as well.

    What I saw was something to the effect your app has downloaded and that's all I saw.

    I know I probably don't need it but Memory up works in case anyone wants to know. The image is too large and so the bars don't fit. I just had to try it for old times sake

    Battery save pro seems to most definitely work I also have Blueefficiency it says it can shut data off and bring it back up as needed but it don't it can do something else in android's media section and control synchronization of mail not sure if it can yet. But I do know that my standby time has more than doubled from 24 to 25 hours! One or both are working quite well. The battery savers in the App world just don't seem to do jack IMO. I also dumped Facebook wasn't using it anyway. Seems like I can get 6.5 of continuous web time. All estimated time from a full battery using WiFi.
