    You're REALLY asking this question? Jeez, do a Playbook forum search for "Android"... it's not difficult.

    Angry birds is a native app now...
    The others are the re-packaged android apps as mentioned. Are you using the 2 beta OS??

    Hi mattvait,

    Mind if I ask what OS you're using?
    Frankly, I haven't noticed this in Appworld. I'm using 1.0.8.6067. Maybe that's why.

    I am using 2.0.0.4869 and suddenly saw Ebuddy E-messenger (msn/gtalk/etc).

    I downloaded it, installed it and started it. What happens when i start it? My Android applauncher starts and asks me how i want to open the app (QNX Applauncher, Zeamlauncher, etc)!

    And yes, that means that it is a repacked Android-app in the Appworld. Amazing!

    That's exactly it. The devs/handster or whoever packages the app put which OS it needs to work, and app world will only show the ones available to yours.

    Thanks for clarifying. My thoughts exactly. My post was a polite hint to mattvait that his concern may likely be because he's using OS 2 beta, so we can't really fault appworld for it.

    You probably have the latest released version. The beta release is developement only (theoretically) at this stage. You can dowload it from RIM and install it, but it is not official release code, so don't expect all the features/stability.

    It's available for download for devs to test their apps on. Just the UI diff as far as general users are concerned... Oh and ad2p support for bluetooth.
    You can run the home converted apps by sideloading them or use the (not too good) selection available in app world to instal OTA

    Yes, and they are basically flooding it with absolute **** for the most part.

    im using the beta os. but i was mostly wondering why there were phone apps on app world with phone screen shots. it was just confusing. and if they run on the andriod app player i thought that you had to root to get the andriod app player working. thanks for the clairification cracksters.
