A very disappointed returning BlackBerry user

I am back to BlackBerry from being away for a 3 years using Android devices and I am very disappointed with the lack of Apps I can find in "BB world". I wish I had checked if my apps were available before I changed to BlackBerry. I can't find Audible, Amazon cloud player,Rhapsody, and several newspapers I read every day, just to mention a few. Also, by not supporting flash, BlackBerry is limiting the users even more because we can't even browse to websites were we have cloud services to get those services directly from their website because most websites require flash. Is BB browser ever going to support flash? I never imagine struggling so much with this device and services available because Blackberry has promised in their advertisement that we would be amazed by their new devices. Sorry BlackBerry but just having a great device doesn't cut it for me if you have no apps to run on it and you restrict users so much. What good is it to have a great device if there are not good apps to run on it? I am definitely going back to Android as soon as I can.

Re: A very disappointed returning BlackBerry user

Good day

Welcome to BB forums

Where to start, well please re-frame from mul posts of the same issue. That would be great.

Also understand the BlackBerry 10 devices just came out even Android & I phone had some time to come out with apps!

Third take the time to do your research on your device because the browser does have ADOBE FLASH if you want you can go to the options and turn it on!

Re: A very disappointed returning BlackBerry user

I actually did research here and I found a few threads where users were told that BlackBerry 10 doesn't support flash. Thanks for letting me know that it actually does support flash. This is great news to me since I can't do nothing but get my emails on this expensive device.

 

Thanks,

go to your browser then go to "Settings" then tap on "Display and Actions" then scroll down then you will see Adobe flash

Re: A very disappointed returning BlackBerry user

I've been a BB user years and I use my phone as a one stop shop.  Listening to Rhapsody is a huge part of my daily routine.  I just switched from a BB Torch to a Z10 and Rhapsody is not offered in BB World and if you attempt to download the app from the Rhapsody website it merely redirects you back to the site.  Is there an update regarding the app?  Please advise because I'm considering switching phones.

Unfortunately "Rhapsody" is not available for Z10 yet

Re: A very disappointed returning BlackBerry user

Keep in mind that BB10 is a relatively new OS. When Android first hit the market, it didn't have nearly as many apps as BB10 did when first introduced. Fact is, BB10 devices have access to WAY more apps than Android did at inception. Just give it some time and I think you'll be impressed. Search Wikipedia for exact numbers but you'll see that BlackBerry World puts both the Apple Store and Google Play to shame.


Cheers. :smileyhappy:
