android apps & Snap app

I updated my Z10 to 10.2.1.537.

I did turn on Installing Apps in the App Manager.

I did install Snap.

I am able to download android apps from Google.

But, during the installation of any app the installation hangs up on ...processing...

 

Does anyone know what might be the cause of this???

 

Thank you for any help.

Hello Kvfoster

 

Check the following options you have enabled the following.

Allow install applications from other sources.

Go to settings
Application Manager
Deploying Applications
Here is switcher must be in "I"

 

And comes back to install an application...

 

Regards.

Re: android apps & Snap app

Thank you for the very fast response.  I do appreciate your help.

In the application manager I did set to ON the slider for "Allow Apps from Other Sources to be installed.".

I do not know what you are referring to by "Deploying Applications".  I do not find that selection in my Settings options.

Thx.

Sorry it was a typing mistake...

 

Still I ask the problem persists even to process and finish installing applications.

Re: android apps & Snap app

Yes.  The problem still exists.

When Snap starts the installation it goes to ...initializing... and then to ...processing...

The processing phase lasts forever.  It's as if the installer is having the problem, but of course the UI gives no information.

Thx again.

BlackBerry Android Runtime allows you to run you provided android applications from your blackberry.

Did you give all the needed permissions to snap? Especially the one that allows to access storage
