Apps not available

I changed from a Bolt to Z10. Now I can't download: shazam, Whatsapp and many more Apps?

Re: Apps not available

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

As has always been, every app must be ported to every specific device model as well as every major OS level. With BB10, this is even more challenging as the OS is totally different from before (though I've heard development is "easier" for BB10). Some developers choose not to port their apps to every device, other developers choose otherwise. But it's the developers who make that choice...so your question may be better placed toward them.

Good luck!

Re: Apps not available

shazam refuses to develop an app for the Z10.
WhatsApp Messenger is available on the BlackBerry World.
