Re: How to list out all the installed apps on BB10 device

There are no documented APIs for doing that. You could scan the /accounts/1000/appdata folder, though that won't tell you the actual names of the apps, or much else, though you could technically get the app id (e.g. "ca.engenuity.WhiteNoise" in the case of one of mine) and the icon PNG file, but nothing else.

Re: How to list out all the installed apps on BB10 device

I am still not able to get the application ids for all installed apps.

I am working on BB android runtime and using Android's packagemanager to list all installed packages but not getting the entry of native package s.

In that case you should probably have posted this in the Android Runtime Development forum at a stretch the Native forum.

This one is for Cascades.
