    I installed an Android app called SnoreClock via Snap following instructions here:
    How to use Snap on BlackBerry 10.2.1 to install Android APK files | CrackBerry.com

    Advertised as free, but you have to pay for the banner ads free version which is done via getting an add-on from within the app. Selecting that function just causes the app to exit so I'm guessing there is no way to do this?


    Also wondering why Snap has to be sideloaded if it is a native BlackBerry app as claimed in the above instructions?

    Don't think In-app purchases work, because the app doesn't have any connection to Google Play, so it just exists. Same thing when you open a menu that hosts a Google Play Services link in an Android game that uses that. Also force closes.

    Regarding Snap you'll have to sideload it because it wouldn't pass the evaluation process in BlackBerry World to become available for all. It violates the terms and conditions of the BlackBerry World where they won't accept competing app stores in the World front and it also uses a backdoor to access Google Play. This isn't exactly something Google would really approve of maybe and that is also a reason why BlackBerry won't accept it (for now).
    Sideloading Native apps is perfectly normal. When you sideload an Android app, you have to have it in bar format. That is what the OS recognizes as an installable app from a computer. Devs usually use it to beta test their apps.
