AppWorld and Android

I would like to know how to make the Android programs not showing in AppWorld, I prefer to use real PlayBook programs and not Android one since they are not user friendly at all

Re: AppWorld and Android

I'm with you on this issue. When searching App World I would like to know which apps have been ported from Android. I too find them less robust than PlayBook apps and often display info or features that are only found in the Android version. I guess if you don't liek a particular ported app you can delete it.

Re: AppWorld and Android

I would rather find out before I purchase a program and therefore lose money for something that is not even truly for the Playbook

Re: AppWorld and Android

I agree with you Martin. Many of the ported apps don't work properly. The best way so far is to look at the screen shots. 2nd with some of the android apps I am getting good popular adds. That really ducks.

Re: AppWorld and Android

The ones that I tried, you can not come back to the previous screen without closing the program and then re-open the program, or they use measurement that are not understandable.
