    You can't download any app (regardless of it being either apk or bar) on a playbook. You need to use a computer. RIM blocked this feature on the PB for some "security" reason.
    Too much security is worse than no security when it keeps everyone out.

    Guys, save yourself some hassle with converting and trying stuff that guaranteed won't work.

    APK files are just zip files. Associate them with winzip, winrar, etc, and before you try to convert them, open them and look inside.

    If there is a "lib" folder, don't waste your time, the libs are the native android code interfaces, and no app using native code is going to work. Period.

    So you are just wasting your time trying to convert and running ANYTHING with a lib folder in it.

    Cheers

    I just extracted the ebay bar file and then extracted the apk inside that and it has a lib folder, yet it works perfectly.

    Hey unker. First of all, great job on the online converting tool. Haven't done any conversions though, but judging from the feedback, it seems great. There is only one app that I've been trying to convert, but I keep getting the 'error while signing .bar file' error. Is there something I'm doing wrong here?

    This application is converted but could not be started because it requires Adobe Air for Andoid.

    I am trying to get the NMJ Navigator for the popcorn hour converted.
    Google play link https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...activity&hl=en
    Direct link to APK: http://nmjtoolbox.net/files/syabas_navigator.apk

    I tried it through this website but no luck, would anyone be able to try it through the standard blackberry process to see if it works?

    the error i get is:
    Sorry!
    No luck, i get the error "the application Blackberry Keyboard (process system.apps) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

    Is there a way to convert a recent version if the app is already there it cannot convert recent one.

    I believe a read somewhere that even though the filename is the same as the old version, the file you just converted is actually the new one. sideload it and see. sorry if I'm spreading bad info though

    Using BBH Tool.exe I tried side-loading 4 existing .bar files, and only one made it onto my Playbook , OS 2.1. (Radio On - and that would not run). I tried converting Teamviewer.apk (from official site) and on the 2nd attempt it side-loaded, but I couldn't get it to connect to it's test server. Disappointed, because converting .apk to .bar has defeated me so far

    The site only serves up old versions if the app has previously been converted.

    I'm trying to convert KeePassDroid-1.9.18.3.apk. It says, "oh, I've already converted that app last year. Here's that old version: com.android.keepass_v1.0.98.0.bar"

    I love the simplicity of the site, but this is a major oversight. ...or am I missing something?

    Will this converter work for BB10 phones? Guess I can just try loading one up and seeing.
