Download Playbook Apps

Is it possible to download Playbook apps from download to install on your simulator?  I have an App World account that's currently tied to my Bold, so when I try to download an app, it says that the app is not compatible with my device.  Will I need to create a separate account for the Playbook?

 

I think it would be interesting to load up a few apps that I would download anyway once I get a Playbook in my simulator to test my apps in an environment with other apps.  Not a show stopper by any means, but I think it would be interesting.

Re: Download Playbook Apps

App World does not recognize the browser on the simulator.  So you cannot right now.

Re: Download Playbook Apps

hey wingflap,

 

the way that the phones work with appworld is unless the app is listed as compatible with ur device, you cannot download it. so that explains why you cant download any playbook apps to your phone - since it is not a playbook.

 

also its been mentioned by Ryan @ RIM that at first the only way to install PlayBook apps is via the native AppWorld app on the playbook.

Re: Download Playbook Apps

Thanks JRab,

 

I was trying to download via my browser on my computer - not on my phone.  If my app ever gets approved and I get a Playbook, I assume that appworld will control:

  1. Allowing only apps for 6.o to my phone
  2. Allowing only TabletOS apps to my Playbook
  3. Allowing either to my computer.

In theory, I think we all hope it will work that way. I think we also all hope that there will soon be a playbook filter in appworld

Re: Download Playbook Apps

Kind of a shame! Would be fun to be able to try out at least the free apps for PlayBook on our simulators Smiley Happy
