    Hey guys, we are starting a new weekly segment where i will present a 10 top blackberry apps thing on good e-reader. My thread is massive and i upload hundreds of new apps a week, its hard to follow it, and know whats good. I am doing a top 10 list of the top converted apps i do all week in written form.

    here is the first one.
    Top 10 Blackberry Apps of the Week – May 25 to June 1 2014

    You can see a prototype of our new template with the latest one we did for android apps

    Thanks, as always, koz!

    A few of my nominations:

    D7 Reader
    Crackle (app behaviour must be set to showcase)
    IMDB (Some sort of error appears. Click OK and then the app loads fine)

    why does the apps that i have downloaded using good e reader doesnt work on my blackberry playbook? everytime i try to open the newly installed applications, it doesnt open, instead it leaves a note that says "Force Close. please intall the app again..." but when i tried to re-install it, the same thing happens. please tell me what i need to do bc i really badly need those android apps to be in my bb playbook. reply asap thanks

    What apps specifically? Make sure the app's download page says that the app is for the Playbook- if it only says that it's for BB10 it likely will not work on the Playbook.

    Koz's last post in this thread is from almost a year ago, and I thought he largely gave up on converting apps for the PB due to low site hits for these types of applications. I did find that even for apps which were listed as being converted and working for the PB, it was still hit and miss for the app to actually work.

    We still operate the APK to BAR convertor for those of you that want to upload Android apps we have on the site and test them on the Playbook. We still make sure the more popular apps are always updated. Our focus is on Android now, but we still upload a few Blackberry Playbook apps every single day.

    What kind of apps are you keeping updated for Playbook? Also, what is the adroid runtime. 2.3 or 4.1?

    The pb android runtime has not changed.

    We have like 3,000 Playbook apps on our site, we test all the new builds that come out and make sure its compatible. If its not, we leave the old version up and duplicate it and add a blackberry 10 variant, if it works on that.
