    Hello Guys,

    In just wondering does anyone know of another way to get my favourite android apps onto my bbz10 device I know about side loading but it doesn't seem to work for me the apps either close instantly or just immediately crash I've tried various versions of different apps but it still doesn't seem to fix the problems i am having. Does anyone have a solution or know of another way how to do it?

    Also is the rumour true that RIM will be integrating android software into some of their devices? Or is it just a big lie.

    But I would be grateful for anyone just to reply to my post thanks allot.

    You can directly install Android Apps, from the Google Play store, now.
    Search the forum for SNAP and SNAP installer.
    While you're at it, search for Installing APK files.
    You need BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 and up.

    What OS version do you have? For direct loading of Android apps, you need at least 10.2.1.xxxx

    If you have an older OS, android apps can be more of a problem.

    Search for SNAP and you can read all about it.
    You sideload SNAP and then use it to download apps via your Google account, directly over the air on to your BlackBerry.

    Open Settings, scroll down to About, open it. Use the drop down menu in the upper right and select OS. Type in the info on os and software version.

    You need Development Mode for side loading. When you're done you can turn DM off. It doesn't need to be on to load apps from Snap.

    Option ,if your existing OS cannot work on andorid app and reload official OS 10.2.1.2102.
    1. After reload official OS swipe setting App manager "ON"
    2. Directly load one mobile market
    3. Load andorid app by one mobile market
    Note. Back up device files before reload OS.
    Good Luck!
