Is there an Android app in 2.0

[ Edited ]

Hello again folks.

 

I have been trawling and come up with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJCVNiBp2ug&feature=related which shows a playbook using 'Android app player'? I have read a few threads that talk about this app and that it was included with the upgrade. I do not seem to have it. Can anyone tell me how to obtain the app please? I have searched Blackberry App World but here is nothing I can see that fits the bill.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Ross

Re: Is there an Android app in 2.0

The Android App player is baked into the PlayBook - so there's no 'app player' as such now. It's all invisible to the PlayBook user.

When you download apps from AppWorld, some are packaged Android apps.

For instance, if you search for the BBC News app - this is an Android app ported to the PlayBook. Run that and you will see.

Hope that makes it clearer.
