Hello shashinjani

 

Welcome to the Community 

 

You can search through BlackBerry World, but if you can't find, it means those Apps are not compatible for BB 10 yet. You need to check with the apps developer webiste also to find out if the apps are downloadable for your device model or not.

 

Regarding your BB Link issue, you can write it in http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/BlackBerry-Link/bd-p/blackberrylink to obtain quicker help and assistance.

 

Enjoy the experience of Z10.

 

Cheers.

Re: how to get Android Apps on Z10 - help needed

thank you for your response,

 

just a quick question - there are lots of discussions and links  websistes on google ... claiming to use leaked versions of OS 10.2.1 or later and claiming to be providing various software &  support for getting andorid applications on Z10.

 

my question is whetther -  you recommend to use these softwares or installing leaked software / os system OR wait for Blackberry to release this official version ??

 

do you think blackberry will release an OS which will support Andorid applications to be used in Z10???

 

Thank you in advance,

Hi sashinjani

If there's no issue/problem with your device, I'd NOT recommend to use leaked version of OS nor side load apps. Even if you download leaked OS, you won't find Google Play on it.

It's only a matter of time that RIM will release android based apps in BlackBerry World and/or new OS. One of them is reading this topic Smiley Happy

You're welcome sashinjani.

That would be OS 10.2.1.xxx... the latest leaked version is 10.2.1.1925 and quite honestly, works well.

You can find it on many of the independent BlackBerry blogs, good that number and your specfic  Z10 model found at Settings > About.
