Possible to put emulated/ converted Android App into Black Berry World?

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

at the moment our company is using sideloading to provide an emulated Android app to the employess Q10/ Z10.

 

The employees can install the app in their private section via a link. Now we want to deliver a more comfortable solution: We want to push the app to them. But for pushing via the BES (BB Enterprise Server) a native BB is needed.

-> Is this correct?

 

Due to we don't want to redevelop the app we are search another way to deliver the app.

 

-> So is it possible to put this (emulated Android) app into the Black Berry World?

 

And what do we have to do to get his in place?

 

Regards

 

Oliver

To place an android app into AppWorld you just need to repackage the app into a .bar file.

You will need to repackage that apk into a bar file after which it can be used just like a normal BB10 application (Publish to BBW, push to devices via BES).
