Going from Android back to BB

I used to love my BB's but as time has progressed I've switched to Android for some of the features they offered. My upgrade time is coming up and I'm highly interest and going back to BB and getting the Z10. My hesitation is the app selections. On android I have the true facebook, twitter, pinterest and other apps like that. They were free as many other great apps are for android. I've been trying to search BBWorld for apps and all I'm finding are apps created by general users and not the true "company" apps. Am I just missing the apps that BB offers?

Re: Going from Android back to BB

Perhaps some apps cannot be found in BlackBerry World because they come included with the phone and can be installed with BlackBerry Link (this is BB10 talk I'm using.  It used to be BlackBerry APP World and BlackBerry Desktop Software).  If you're ever not sure, a simple trick to try is to type www.blackberry.com/*** with the *** being the app name.  Many times, it will direct you to the download location.


For the record, I can confirm that Facebook and Twitter are both there.  Pinterest, not yet.



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

Re: Going from Android back to BB

Is there any hopes for pinterest? Or is it already available? How do I get it on my phone again?
