Where are you trying to download things from, especially given Skype isn't available for the playbook?

Unfortunately Skype and things like Netflix are not yet available for Playbook so if you are looking on the Skype website there is no default App for Blackberry PlayBook. This will likely change in the future

You cant install Android Apps from the Google Play website (assume this is where you are trying to download from?) - standard android apps that have been ported to the Playbook platform are available in Blackberry App World.

Apolgosies  - one I missed off, App World is not available via Bridge, I assume its due to the size of some downloads
