    Hello everyone,

    I am using a Z10 and a Mac, What is the best/easiest way to install snapchat? How good does it perform on the bb?

    FIrst: Please update your profile: phone, OS... can be usefull to help you.

    About snapchat: Snapchat works on Z10 10.2 but there are some cons, like you can't type spaces in a snap. Video is a bit laggy but for the rest it's quite good.
    If you want it you don't need to sideload it. Just downloading the apk from your BB and run the installation will be enough but if you want some Android apps i suggest you do install SNAP (it's like Google Play Store on Blackberry) I Will post a link to install snap right away
    Anyway you have to sideload snap but this is no big deal:
    You have less problems with snapchat on 10.3 as I heard

    I suggest you to get Snap2Chat instead. It's an awesome native Blackberry App so it works better with your Blackberry Z10
    So first of all I will teach you how to sideload apps --> the apps you have to sideload are .bar files so no APK!

    First download this: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...UI-3_1_1_1.bar
    like you can see it's a .bar file

    1. Go into settings

    2. Go into App manager

    3. Go into Installing Apps and allow installing apps from other sources.

    Go back to settings and search for Security and Privacy

    4.Swipe all the way down, you will see Development Mode

    5.Turn it on

    It will ask you for your device password or if you hadn't got one already you have to make one

    6. OKay so far so good. Developer mode is on now hook it up to your PC and write your IP on a little paper you will need it.

    7. install the BB10/ Playbook App Manager Chrome extension. Just here (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...ljnelbpblnikkp)

    8.Click on it type in your IP you wrote down on a little paper

    9.In the bottom will be a blue IP, if it's the same press it.

    10.Now it will give you a warning just press the left button on the screen and press proceed

    11.Now give in the device password you made.

    12.It will get you to a page where you can press install in the right corner.

    13. Browse for the bar file and the magic begins.

    Now turn off Developersmode.

    You can do the same for this file. It's the snap app so you can Install apk (android apps) like google play store.
    You can download snapchat from here.
    I use snapchat for the chat function and snap2chat for all the rest.

    Hope it helped normaly I would upload some pictures too but I can't right now so you can see how it looks and step for step help
