So I downloaded the BB Bridge to my phone and I was under the impression that I would be able to use all the apps that are on my phone on my PB. Am I doing something wrong or is this simply not the case?

Re: Apps

Hopefully someone replies to you soon but my guess is that the blackberry playbook is not compatible with all of the apps that you use on your phone. I am sure you will get a good tech response here soon - stay tuned!

Re: Apps

the phone and the Playbook do not use the same system (OS), so that means that the application that runs on your phone can not run on the Playbook

 

Alot of them however do have a version that is design for the Playbook

 

The bridge is to give you access to your contact, e-mail, memos, task, bbm, from the Playbook and basically let you use the bigger screen. When  you use these application on the Playbook, nothing from them is stored on the device, but it is all in the pbone

Re: Apps

just to add bridge browser. Remember that bbm groups are not supported at the present time.

Re: Apps

This might be a feature with iCloud (Apple), but I'm not really sure.
