I was checking the games on my daughters bb playbook and noticed someone had written a review on a game and mentioned how she has google play and her5 year old loves the games.  Now ive been on there to try to dwonload games but it says something about a white shopping bag but i cant find it and it says no device found even though im using the tablet to look on there site!


Anyone have any ideas?

First search the app world icon in playbook. If it's there you can install it.


Next search www.goodereader.com in the playbook apps. If it's there you can sideload an app using a tool on your pc. If you have windows the method is explained.  If you are on mac come back here. 


If it is in neither place, you cannot install the game from anywhere else.
