    Anybody have any experience with downloading a Bloomberg apk? How does it look on the Passport?

    I can't tell if it requires Google Play services but would something like this work??

    I did a device switch on my Passport from my Classic and the app doesn't work well at all on the Passport.

    I have included a screen shot but it appears to show 2 stories at once with it being unreadable.

    Any advice outside for a big Bloomberg fan??

    Bloomberg 2.22.303601.0.62820da APK Download - Android Finance Apps

    Thanks

    Using Cobalt's workaround it installs fine. Strangely even the amazon app asks for Google play services.

    I also have the app downloaded on my Q10 and Classic. Works great!

    The issue is that it was never made available or formatted for Passport. Other BlackBerry 10 devices have the native app and it's great. Poor Passport never got it though.

    Since I love this app and use it daily I was wondering what other options I have

    I might as well try and clarify my response as well. As it is indeed unavailable for the Passport specifically you can find it on the amazon appstore. Occasionally it has stopped working, choosing to request for Google play services to be installed.
    The alternative would be to download from Google play using Cobalt's workarounds. The screenshot is of a working app on my passport SE using that method
