Z10 - Blackberry News

On my Playbook there's a very good app called Blackberry news.  Does this exist on the Z10?  I've been using Taptu of late but I prefer the app on the Playbook.

Re: Z10 - Blackberry News

Hi there!

You are correct...many of us really like the BB News app for the PB. At present, all indications are that it has not been ported to the Z10. I'd guess that screen real estate may be the key issue, but I've also no access to any formal information about it.

I agree that the BB News app is the best...until we know if/when it is ported to the Z10, we must make do with others.

Good luck!

Re: Z10 - Blackberry News

I missed it as well since I had it on my Bold 9900, it was not as good as the Playbook's but it was good.

 

I hope they will port it soon to the Z10

 

It should not be to difficult since both the Playbook and Z10 are using the same QNX OS
