Re: Downloading files

.jad type files are not installable to a BlackBerry PlayBook.


You will need to 'sideload' the Kindle app to your PlayBook.

See the instructions to do so here and here


You also have in your Forum profile here listed "BlackBerry PlayBook 7" yet there is not such thing as a Playbook 7.
