    I don't believe that this is possible through BlackBerry world as of yet. There does seem to be an option for it in settings but I cannot get it to work. Maybe in the future?

    The option in settings is for music and video, not apps. I'm not so sure they will do this, although if there is enough feedback BlackBerry may buckle to consumer pressure.

    Don't think any of the stock mobile os's allow this. But I could be out of date.

    Android definitely supports app2sd. I don't see any reason why BB don't allow it. Especially when it's not possible to choose a third party default app for messaging or dialer etc.. so it couldn't really cause reliability/stability issues ...

    it won't ever happen, BB is all about security and native apps. Once you allow for apps2sd, you open up piracy and then thats partially how a very secure OS becomes unsecure and filled with crap like Android. Why do you think Android has some many pirated apps? Because of things like apps2sd... Sucks when you are a normal consumer and want to download all the apps you can but run out of room, but with BlackBerry it won't happen.

    How does apps2sd cause it to become unsecure? Developers themselves can create malicious software and submit it to bb world, or google play. It all depends on bb, android/google to properly screen apps before allowing apps. If blackberry were so intent on security the option to sideload wouldn't have been allowed.

    When it comes to piracy, few environments rival BBRY's current morass. By the way, how does app2sd promote piracy?

    And bb is not all about native apps. Allowing android runtime baked into the native os. It's the tradeoff between having a few apps or quite a few apps for the consumer. So hopefully they will look into the apps2sd

    Yes, because all it takes for someone to modify the apk/bar file with malicious code and upload it. Sideloading isn't something that joe blow consumer will do, that becomes something that the more elite will do.

    I disagree: it isn't that hard. There's the Chrome installer, for one, which makes it quite straightforward indeed.
