    Although I LOVE my BBRY Q10 I feel I've been conned into believing that BB10 was a great new OS with loads of developers & Apps on board. Whenever I see an app advertised it's always Android or Apple. I'm stuck with a great phone but no support for 18 mths until my next upgrade.

    I have no specific apps to mention, just that all the apps in papers & magazines are Android or Apple only.

    I'm sure you can find more than a few cheap Androids that could support 'all' those apps... they may be lousy at everything else, but they'll have the apps. It's a choice we have to make based on how we use our devices... : /

    Another anti-BlackBerry troll topic. Fits the formula used in the past which most often began:

    "I've been a loyal BlackBerry user and have had every BlackBerry since 1950, but ....[fill in **** that's been beat to death here]" The formula usually calls for some moderate response like "Really? What exactly are you missing?" Team troll then usually goes on for a long time hashing over how BlackBerry is missing so many things and how itoy and spydroid are great. This usually is allowed to continue for many posts, because the site is greedy for as many hits as it can get. Then the thread is conveniently closed, after the trolls have the last word, and a member like me gets an infraction for saying "itoy" or "spydroid." Way to go, crackberry!

    You're not a troll? Okay. Why did you start this topic? Why didn't you just pile on one of the many negative ones that already exist?

    Next part of the formula:

    * Blame BlackBerry ("This is what's wrong with BlackBerry. Any criticism means your a troll,") when a BlackBerry supporter exposes the formula ... and make sure you say, "Duh!"

    I agree with the OP. We all had high hopes for bb10 and we're told that the apps would come; They're not coming. He11, just give me my dam TD bank app and I'd be happy....but....nope!

    You have a BlackBerry 10.


    [Watch for this topic to disappear, not because it's an obvious troll topic, but because it exposes the formula. This topic should be locked and pinned as an example of what kind of topics will be deleted in the future.]

    Ok.... You make an app for something you advertise.

    You have 1 developer to do it. Do you pay him to reach 90% of the market and be done with or do you double his salary make one native app for BlackBerry and one for Windows, too?

    If the apps would be ported, we would complain that they are only ported as we already do. 10.2 with a improvements is still not out....

    So here is your answer.

    We were told the truth.... just not that we would be a big niche market.....

    I hear ya OP. But something I've come to realize is.. BB10 is a superior OS when it comes to getting things done.. missing apps yes - this annoys me too. . It's actually not the major apps that are lacking because most of them believe it or not are actually on the platform.. it's all the little apps for little things you see around, for example. Squareup - android iOS... Nest (thermostat) - android iOS... just a couple of examples there.. I would like both those things.. and to be honest, side loading works for Squareup (not sure about nest).. but I understand what you mean... bottom line is... those kinds of apps are NOT coming to BlackBerry until BlackBerry gets enough market share, and we aren't sure that's going to happen any time soon. the other solution would be that BlackBerry finds a way to actually tap into the Android Play app store, and have 100% of their apps compatible... again, huge long shot - ain't going to happen.
