Android apps?????

Hello all, I just got myself a playbook, and I love it. My only complaint is of course the lack of good apps. I know you can download android apps, but I'm not sure how. Any one help?

Re: Android apps?????

Define "good", please.

What exactly are you searching for?

 

You can find the Android apps in BlackBerry AppWorld.

Re: Android apps?????

Why can't I get the same apps on my playbook as my torch. I have some banking apps on my torch, and I can't find them for my tablet. Why?

Torch apps are made in Java and PlayBook is in QNX, so the apps are not compatable between the two. It is also up to the developer of the app to make it for both. If you really like an app on your phone, ask them to make it on your playbook is a great start.

Did you see the answer to your first questions above?

 

If so, you might learn to acknowledge or thank the user who is answering your question(s).

Or even ask your real question up front.

 

There are many 'good' apps for the PlayBook. If you don't think there are, what is it that you are looking for?
