Apps listed on Desktop but not on Smartphone

Hello,

  I recently purchased a Z10 and now would like to add some apps to it.  I searched in BlackberryWorld on the Z10 for MapMyRun with no results.  I looked for other Running apps and none came up.

  Later I was looking on the Blackberry.com Website and noticed that there are many MapMy... apps (Run, Fitness, Walk, etc.) Additionally there are other GPS running apps coming up on my desktop.  I went back to my Z10 and still none show up.

  Can someone please explain why I am not seeing these apps on my Z10?  Is there another way to put these apps on my Z10?

  Thank you.

Perhaps those apps are for OS 5-7, not the Z10.

If you look again at the desktop BlackBerryWorld, you'll a link to supported device for each app.

Yes I believe you are correct.  I just looked and they have not been ported to the Z10 yet.

I am still new to the Blackberry.

Thank you for your reply and assistance.

Re: Apps listed on Desktop but not on Smartphone

I am pretty certain I've seen some decent sports and fitness apps on the Z10 BlackBerry World. Haven't tried any though.

 

Hey, and you should email or tweet the developers of your older device apps that you'd like to see them ported over to BB10!

 

Good luck.

Re: Apps listed on Desktop but not on Smartphone

Thanks again.

I did not see any decent GPS running apps.  But since MapMyRun is not avail (which I was using on my iPhone) perhaps I will give them a try.

On another note, I see that you also have a Z10.  I just got mine yesterday.  I have Macs at home and of course with the iPhone all of the apple mail, contacts and calenders sync'd nicely.  I like the iPhone but I an very excited about the new BB10 and it's many features which is why I bought it.  However now I don't know how to sync my email, calendar, and contacts.

Would you be able to assist with that?

If you have a me.com email address, just set that up on your Z10 and it will all sync very nicely.
