Re: Android support on the Playbook

Andriod app are seemless in appworld, some do show a andriod banner on bottom when you swipe from bottom


You can sideload a lot of apps too, but there is no way to get to gogle play on the playbook to install apps from it


There are tons of android app in in app world now, some even say android in their title.
