    Hello
    I'm a Newbie to the site and to playbook. I'm trying to put android apps on my playbook but i'm having problems and i'm stressed cause i really want this to work. SO i printed the directions from Good e Reader and CrackBerry and watched tons of videos before starting. (On Playbook) I got Development mode on, IP address, Password then I went to browser and downloaded Dropbox from Good E Reader site saved on my playbook.
    On Desktop i got DDPB the new version , New update of Java, Microsft Net (i did all my microsft xp updates), then i opened my Desktop manager and connected my playbook when i saw Sync All i went to DDPB and scanned for IP address and inserted my password it connected with no problems. then i clicked ADD this is when a window opens and i go to my computer i see my playbook . I open and see all my folders so i open "Downloads" and It's EMPTY. At this point i want to cry. so i minumize everything and go to my Computer from my Desktop and i see playbook drive Z and i open it and see the folders and open "Download folder " and there is Dropbox but its not the same icon and its the one you know when it ask "what do you want to use to open with" (1-use the web) ( 2-use a program)
    i don't get what i'm doing wrong and why when i click add the folder is empty . I hope someone can help.
    I want to say sorry now if i did not post in the right place as i said i'm new to all this.
    thank you and please HELP ME!

    Sometimes even if an app converts and sideloads successfully there is still no gurantee that it will work. Its the same with an Android itself. Not all Android apps will work on all Android devices

    BookCrazy:

    I would suggest downloading the Dropbox bar file (from good-e-reader) to your computer - wherever you normally store downloaded files. Then open DDPB and select ADD and browse to the location where you downloaded the dropbox bar file and Add it. Then find it in the list and select INSTALL (click the box so it is selected). And, obviously check all of your settings for ddpb.
