Re: Android app

Okay I need bar files and not apk files BUT this is not the final solution or BB?????

Re: Android app

this is the way it goes, to make Android app available on Blackberry AppWorld, you need to package it as a .bar file, and then release it on AppWorld as you would do with a normal BB app.

If there is an Android app that you would really like on the PlayBook, kindly ask devs if they would mind trying to repackage it, and make it available on the AppWorld... I don't think we'll have an Android market available on the PlayBook.

Re: Android app

I think it will improve to a smoother process once finally released.
