Hi and Welcome to the Community!
a) why they are not available
Each app must be specifically ported to every BB model number and major OS level combination. That's a lot of porting, and for BB10, it's even harder for the developers who came from the BBOS world as they cannot just port their app, but they actually have to re-write it from scratch. Many developers choose to not support all platforms. But, in all cases, the best place to lodge an inquiry for any apps you desire that are not available to you is the actual app developer, for it is their responsibility to write their app for your platform (if, indeed, they elect to...they are not required to).
an app that I can use for this purpose?
No idea, but I'll ask the mods to move this to the proper forum board for proper attention for that.
