Kobo, Kindle on Q5

Hi. I see Kobo and Kindle are available now for the BB10 operating system. Yet when I try to download on my new (and wonderful!) Q5, a message says it is not available for this device. What gives? Help please.

Kobo only for the Z10 and Q10 right now.

Kindle only for the Z10.

Re: Kobo, Kindle on Q5

Why? How does OS 10 on the Q5 differ from other two phones?

Re: Kobo, Kindle on Q5

the Q5 is on OS10. All three devices are.

 

Likely, the developer just needs to make the apps available for all devices.

Re: Kobo, Kindle on Q5

I would really appreciate it if Blackberry could contact the developer and make the request to make Kobo and Kindle available to all their BB10 devices.

 

And as I implied in my earlier message, I LOVE this phone!!! If you want to communicate with people, THIS IS THE DEVICE. It does it all flawlessly!  If you want to play games, get a tablet.

lol, no. These devices are meant for many functions.

In the same vein, if you want to read a book, get a book. Smiley Wink

Re: Kobo, Kindle on Q5

Well it's been two months and nothing has changed. And I notice Crackberry never writes anything at all about the Q5. Really, what gives? Like the Whos yelled on Horton Hears a Who, "We are here, we are here, we are here!!!"

Re: Kobo, Kindle on Q5

Good E Reader App Store is a good way to load Kindle on your BB10 Q5. I have tried it on my Q5 and was quite easy. For Kindle just search for kindle once you have downloaded and installed the Good E Redaer App on BB10.

 

Here is a video how to
