    Hi guys,

    Ok so yesterday I learned how to sideload Android APPs to Playbook, and BAR files are only allowed.

    However I wanted some APK files too, so I converted some APK files to BAR files using the following website: PlayBook .apk to .bar converter

    So I downloaded APK file, uploaded it to the website, the web converted APK file to BAR file, then I downloaded the newly converted BAR file, and installed it to my playbook.

    Everything worked fine until I opened the APP, and it said ERROR.

    I am wondering is something wrong with the website, the file, my PC, or my playbook?

    Please help...

    PS. the file did convert from APK to BAR, but still there is error

    Is the application compatible? I think the Android app player is only compatible with 2.3 and under, with no network connections allowed.

    What's the app? Many aren't compatible with playbook.

    Subzero the "Android Runtime" only allows Android 2.3.3 apps to be converted for use on the Playbook. There are many good free online app stores with working converted .apks google: GoodEreader Playbook Apps
