Re: Adding Apps

If the zip file contains an ALX or COD file you can use PocketMac to install the application -- you can find instructions here:



Unfortunately if the zip file contains an EXE file, you will not be able to install it via Mac, you'll have to use BlackBerry Desktop Manager under Windows. If this is the case you may want to look at the website where you got the application to see if there is an ALX or COD file available, or if they offer an OTA (Over the Air) install link where you can install the application directly from your BlackBerry Browser.
