    OP: you are ashamed to tell people you use a BB? Seriously? **** those people.

    10.2.1.x and the ability to install android apps has the negated the utility of any other device or OS.

    are you kidding? Viber? Really. loyal and sad blackberry fan. What do you own a blackberry for? To play games? To use it for business purposes or productivity? This is not a toy. if you want a toy go buy an iphone. The apps you are discussing are in no way useful to you in the business world. BBM, Calendar apps and notes not to mention the hub etc. If you want some crappy apps on a buggy phone will scare ware everywhere go buy android. I just dont understand some people. Even after the android apk work around people are realising most of the apps they need are already on blackberry the rest is just fluff. I actually question your loyalty if this is what you are complaining about. Hopefully you just mistakenly posted this because if you are serious then i think you might want to read over what you wrote.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Even when it is incorrect. Lack of apps are you serious? I would not call myself an app person and I have hundreds on my Z10. I have access to millions more; unfortunately the vast majority of apps are useless.

    The OP is correct about the app problem, most people already know this and have known this for quite some time. I agree that blackberry should focus hard on software and less on putting out phones. Apps are very important even though some one here dont think so.

    Everyone knows they're important hence the push BlackBerry made to get us the apps we wanted. It's also the reason they decided to unlock the android runtime for the consumer. Seeing as the adoption of BB10 hasn't been what many were hoping, the majors have continued to hold off, but make no mistake, BlackBerry made efforts to get them on board.

    Even if I m a hardcore BlackBerry fan of all time, it's a shame for me to tell people that I m a BlackBerry fan. Right now I m using a Q10, which performs like as somebody said, fast like a ferrari.. but what use, it's an inbuilt tragedy for every BlackBerry user for every season, that it lacks almost all the applications which ios and android offers. All the time BlackBerry played with a BBM only..and honestly saying, BBM is a joke for android users now. They all are into the latest telegram, talkray like third class apps..still not into a BBM. I donk know when the BlackBerry team will open there eyes towards the app world. Unless they provide key apps like VIBER, LINE, SUBWAY SURFERS, etc..Q10, Q20, Q50 will not help.. They all are out of the court. Laggy apk installations is not a solution either. Its a mess.

    Where were you last year (and even earlier) when BlackBerry was practically sitting there, telling developers that they'd hold their hand in the app building process, or Android port over process?

    Short of BlackBerry employees kidnapping developers and putting guns to their heads, there's nothing else BlackBerry can do to get missing big name apps onboard. Do you think BlackBerry didn't try? Do you think they like not being able to say that their platform has all the apps the other platforms do?

    Why did you buy a Q10 and hope to play a bunch of games on it? If you had Subway Surfers on it, you'd probably complain that the screen isn't big enough. The Q10 isn't really meant for games. It can run some, but what type of gaming experience would you hope to have on a Q10?

    I don't understand why people are embarrassed by their phone. It's not like some physical deformity that you're afraid others will find disgusting. It's a PHONE. Get a new one if you're that concerned about what your friends think. If your friends think less of you because you have a BlackBerry, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but they're probably not good friends and you have a bigger problem in life than no Subway Surfers or Line or Viber or whateverthephucc on your shameful Q10.

    Not sure what else blackberry can do really.. I remember them offering to develop the Netflix app full themselves and Netflix said no.

    They came up with the Android runtime which at least helps. Idk what else you want from them.

    Their OS is apparently the easiest to develop on...

    BlackBerry can't really do anything until they get the user base up. Remember developing an app doesn't just mean taking the time to do the conversion, you have to find the programmers that want to work on the OS. Programmers want to be the next whatsapp or even flappy bird. So they don't want to spend two months making a BlackBerry app. They want to spend that time programming something in iOS. Or maybe android. This isn't changing anytime soon.

    But runtime will get more and more user friendly and more powerful. So app issues will get better. Also the os will contue to incorporate more and more stuff that is currently handled by apps.

    OP please! The apps you are looking for ARE available on BlackBerry the latest 10.2.1 can get you what you want through Snap. Amazon or any other store, there are some built for BlackBerry in BlackBerry World, you now have a hybrid device able to get both BlackBerry native and most Android apps. Not ideal but for the moment the app gap has closed considerably, I am sure BlackBerry and Developers aren't sitting back and not working on the apps that are missing or yet to be native. Owning a BlackBerry is a plus not a negative!

    If you read my post, you can see What I mentioned in it that I m a hardcore BlackBerry fan. Just because of its trademark keyboard and much more secure and fluid os. I don't want to loose it for apps as I already have an additional android phone as well. What I m trying to say is nowadays everyone looking for apps..atleast for key apps..for example, hangouts..its a very necessary app for lot of people..but if you look into the google talk in BlackBerry, it's the one which is from where it is started. Name is google talk, and no talk in it. Only chat with 8 to 10 smileys. Systems like that should be changed. And that should be the first step, so that atleast they can stand bold and ask, why....

    ah yes the mandatory 'hard-core BB fan' or 'been a long time user" (insert BB phones used in the past)...lovely template this is.

    You're ashamed to tell people you use a BlackBerry? There are greater things to be ashamed of and greater tragedies in the world than using a BlackBerry. And that's not even a tragedy. I used a 9900 up until last November. I briefly had an iPhone 5 and I was ashamed of that thing. I wouldn't pull up out of there were a group of young teens with theirs all glittered up. Didn't want to be associated with that. I wouldn't pull it out when a group of people were using their 5 inch plus screens. All I would get was "how can you use such a small screen". I went back to the 9900, battery aside it's my all time favourite phone. Now I have a z30 and I actually get compliments like "I can't believe that's a BlackBerry " or "that's going to be my next phone".

    Well honestly I have been a little worried about BlackBerry and their future but since Mr. Chen became CEO I have had my faith restored. He does have a HUGE workload and the consumers may never go towards BlackBerry since the (US) media hates BlackBerry so much. We will just see what happens.

    Keep The Faith ? BlackBerry Q10 ?
