    24 - Flipboard 52138 Installs
    25 - Evernote 1624 Installs

    Update Note for Sideloads:

    Most, if not all Sideloads are from Good E Reader, ie Dropbox, Evernote, Kingsoft Office...if not on Good E Reader, a search thru CrackBerry forums from 'Google with App name and CrackBerry' usually reveals the latest discussion (and link etc) and last working App version. It sometimes takes a bit of detective work and trial and error...one App I can tell you is the only fully functioning version is Google Maps 6.2.0. The link to the Bar is featured on PlayBook UK.

    Was a great list at one time. Many, many of those no longer work as time marches on.

    I guess I should answer your question, lol. I use only ONE app fairly regularly from your list and that is Kalemsoft. It's been a fantastic app and even now still works well for me by streaming video to my PlayBook from my NAS. Music and video streaming is all that's left for my PlayBook to do. Once in awhile I need Dukto to transfer music but that's about it.

    There are lots of games that still work well - I think I've got an archive of close to 100 somewhere burned onto DVD's but I rarely play them with maybe the exception of a Yahtse game which is beautiful on the PlayBook. Used that for many hours while I was looking after my mother in hospital. She loved playing that game!

    Still use the PB daily. Use it to look up CB. Is BBM Channels still working? Couldn't get anything to work on my Passport.

    Thats good, still use PB here also. No the channels have sadly shut down.

    I notice StereoTube doesn't seem to be working anymore. Was a great app. Not the search function now anyway. A lot of games still work though.

    I also tried to connect unsuccessfully to the Uninstalled list if apps and games available to me in PlayBook BlackBerry World. Looks like the server is down, so if you havent got it installed looks like thats it.

    Yes, no search, unfortunately. Saved links still can be opened and played. I'm glad that I have a large collection saved in my playlists.

    I like PDF Reader. This is a universal program for Android and IOS that can save and edit large graphic and text files in PDF format. I like to read books in compressed format because my device has a limited amount of memory. Such resources allow you to quickly download a file, and a PDF reader can memorize and extract pages that are important to you. My rating is 10/10
