    For users using 10.2.1.....who has closed their personal app gap?

    We now have the ability to access hundreds of thousands of apps. This is huge for the platform.

    I have personally closed my app gap and am very happy.

    For users that are finding their apps incompatible, I hope the issues are addressed in future os builds.

    Who here is enjoying having access to all their favorite apps?

    Then your app gap must remain on all your androids and iphones too right?

    I have had mine shut before that.... I am an avid fan of using the browser..... I just wish some more apps would become native, hence more useful.......

    I personally view Android apps as secondary apps. I primarily use native apps. However some Android apps are amazing and work flawlessly on BB10

    App compatibility sure has improved only getting better

    Only app I had a problem with was Spotify. Gave up my Bold 9900 anyway. Haven't found a working build yet. Tried again with every new update. Currently on the latest official 10.2, still no working Spotify. Anyone any tips?

    Netflix and Spotify were the only 2 app's that made me go back and use my iphone 4s. Not anymore.

    My iphone sits in my nightstand drawer. Haven't touched it in weeks.

    My banking apps and Instagram. They're missing because I won't use stores I don't know and which I find risky.

    I'm missing banking and Instagram. I won't use third party sites for banking and Amazon hasn't got Instagram.

    App gap was closed once my banking app became functional. Most of my android apps are guilty pleasures, like instagram or candy crush. Thinking about trying the Starbucks and Vine apps just to see what all the fuss is about, but I have my hands full with all the other stuff on my phone. I find BBM to be the king of all apps across all platforms

    So, why haven't you grabbed them with Droidstore?

    I prefer not to use APK grabbers or third party stores.

    Hmmm didn't realize Amazon was missing so many apps. Glad you posted this. Sounds like that isn't a viable option then when 10.2.1 is GA. So what will the solution be for apps? Sorry but 1mobile is not an option.

    I downloaded 10.2.1 and since I've been so into going back into sheepdog trialing I was late in getting to play with it. I was wary of 1mobile and then Branta and I were talking and he found the owners of 1mobile and it was a nonstarter for me. I then tried Google Play Store and of course that didn't work....I was just trying things on the fly. Then someone mentioned Amazon and I downloaded it and tried to find Instagram while I was at work....well, it's not there. So....long story short....I won't use third party sites and Amazon hasn't got Instagram.

    For me, things are the same as they were.

    I find APK grabbers to offer needless risk for me. Same thing with third party stores I don't know and whose owners I can't verify or I feel are risky. I don't use them.

    If it's not in the app store I don't use it. I buy BlackBerry for security and I won't use unsupported/risky sources. For me it's not worth the risk.

    I like to complain for the sake of complaining, and when there is a solution for it I will ignore it and continue to complain
