Adding over 900 new android apps to Blackberry OS

[ Edited ]

Hello Everyone; 


Goodereader.com has created an appworld like app with over 900 tested apps (.bar) for Blackberry and Playbook.




The only missing piece is the ability to directly install .bar files on Blackberry OS. 


I see people in the community have already developed "localbar" app to install side loaded apps but it's still does not preform complete local install as it still requires another blackberry or playbook device to do the install. 


I was hoping that Blackberry devlopment team to work on allowing to run and install .bar files directly on the system without the need to use another device or PC. 


This would create a huge selection of apps for people currently using BB 10 OS or planning to get one. 


Thank you kindly.
