Favourite apps and other questions

I have a new Playbook Smiley Happy but I'm disappointed there is no BBM app for it yet  When am I likely to get it? I understand the only way is by using bridge to connect my Torch to the Playbook which sort of seems daft, I may as well just use the Torch.

 

Also DocstoGo, is this just a trial version or a full but basic version?

 

What's your favourite app?

 

Any tips for a newbie please?

Re: Favourite apps and other questions

I have just spoken to someone from BB support, there is not going to be a fix for this, so no podcast availability in th Uk for the foreseeable future.

Re: Favourite apps and other questions

My experience is excellent.  I am on my 90 day free support at the moment and when I first got the Playbook it wouldn't go through the set up.  After literally hours on the phone with 'Andy' who kept ringing me back with more things for me to try, it finally went through!  Previously I'd spoken with a lady, who today rang to see if I was happy with the playbook, she asked if there were other queries so I told her about the lack of Podcasts, the inability to access Soundcloud files, and how to delete stuff.  Again she was very helpful.
