    No, and it never will.

    Posted by my device of choice. Might be a BlackBerry, might not be. It is of concern to you.

    My usual procedure would be to first check if am app I'm looking for is present in BlackBerry World. If not, then I check Snap, which 99.9% of the time will have it.

    I guess you can't say I replaced it, but backed it up.

    I still prefer the BlackBerry world. However, making BB10 support .apk file is a bonus.

    No, it is nice to have options like Android Apps but I won't trust anything that is coupled to Google services. They have shown a consistent pattern of recklessness when it comes to privacy. Profit also trumps privacy with this crew and that includes colluding with the NSA.

    No, it hasn't. I much prefer the apps on BlackBerry World. Snap is just a curiosity for me. I install an app, confirm that it works and promptly delete it. The ones I actually use were all sourced from BlackBerry World.

    As I have said earlier, most of the android apps are garbage.
    I personally have downloaded only 4 to date.

    The only thing i use Snap for is the newest games (and most of them suck or bb10 the next day), and Chromecast apps. Now if BlackBerry would support Chromecast I would uninstall Snap

    No. Excluding the iMore and WP apps, the only app I have installed is Printershare and Instagram downloaded from Amazon and Snap respectively. Other than that, BBW has all I need.

    Keeping in mind that I live in Canada, so CDN banks, retailers, and Media have been good to us.

    No. Native apps are always better. Having snap is just having an another option.

    I was so excited to have the option of Android apps when 10.2 was released, I installed 1mobile straight away and started to search and download apps, so far....... I have downloaded not one of any use, every android app I tried was clunky, and full of adds, one wrong click and I kept finding myself on a damn web page.
    Thus far, I am very underwhelmed at the quality of the Android apps available, and just strengthens my love for BB and its smaller but useful library of apps, BW has everything I need at the moment.

    BB till the end!!!!!!!!!!!

    No. It's hard to beat a properly made native app.

    No. It's just a means to fill in the gaps for me. I now have an app for my bank and an app to stream CTV shows. I got to try the app that remotely runs my washer and dryer (Meh on that one)

    Also an easier means than sideloading to update my Fitbit app.

    I still go to BBW first and the second any of these apps go native, the Android version is destined for delete.

    There are some major apps that BB doesn't have.

    Native is still king.
    Lovely and sweet but useless if they don't exist for BB.

    In a lot of ways yes. Unfortunately many if the versions in BBW are old and not being updated. I have removed a number of the apps originally from BBW and replace with latest from Gplay. One such example is TheScore which has Sochi updates that the BBRY doesn't.

    Although we had gotten a number of native and or android ports into BBW, looks like a number are rather old and the developer us not keep?g current on BB10.

    No. I'd rather install and use native apps from BBW than Snap. I only have a few apps from Snap on my phone that I use a lot and the BlackBerry native apps aren't available or not as feature rich (Instagram, Tumblr, Google Translate, and FB Pages).

    Yes. I use BBW to get apps that are designated "made for BB10." I like those apps because they seem to be tailor-made for BB10 devices. All the other apps I have gotten from BBW seem to be repackaged Android apps. I uninstalled those "BB" apps and I used Snap to get their Android versions. With the Android versions, I get frequent bug fixes and improvements. And their developers generally are more responsive to my inputs.
