      thx for this service – Kindle app downloaded and working very well.  would be great if you could convert Bluefire reader app for Playbook – unless there’s another Playbook app that can read DRM protected Adobe .pdf files?

    • StephenRH

      How does the PlayBook OS2 browser save pages to READ LATER?  The app gives instructions for each named browser which does not include the PB and none of those instructions fit the PB browser.

    • John

      Hi has anyone got a problem getting out of the book…I seem trapped in the book and can’t getback to the main kindle shop screen.

      Nook pdf app does not seem to find pdf files, and doesn’t “see” any files deeper than /accounts/1000/shared (which is where the pdf files are).  And no files can be copied into directories any closer to the root.  How can this be overcome?

    • Rwb4511

    • Rwb4511

      I viewed another YouTube video that simplified the process and now it works!  I’m using DDPB Installer – DDP Installer.

    • Larerick

      could not get this file to load as a “Bar” file.  What to do?

    • Dwcowper

       My existing Kindle account worked great. I can download the books I have bought at kindle from the home page Archive interface. Cheers

    • Frustrated

      I can run the Kindle app and the Goodereader client app but only by clicking ‘run after install’ on the installer program. They never show up on any of the home screens. I heard today, that the new OS (2.0.1) prevents android apps like the ones here from running. Do you know if there is a fix in the works to allow running the apps again?

    • Harryl6134

      Kindle was installed on my PB before testrday’s update, and still works.  On one occasion, I had to remove/reinstall with DDPB installer, after the app locked up and wouldn’t close or respond at all.  The are newer Kindle variations out there, but the consensus (borne out by my experience) is that this version is the best available for now.  You can check for further info.

    • mirko_menegazzo

      Any chance to get Google Currents?

    • Betty

      It would be great to update this version- getting a message on Playbook that this one no longer works.

      Hello and thanks for the video re installing Android Apps on Playbook. I wonder if you could include a printed set of instructions on how do install for forgetful old men like me to follow. 
      Thanks once again.

    • Senocular

      Fantastic Work, thanks!

      all apps have worked so far apart from the sunday times.

    • Rdlangner

      is there a app to read the Toronto star on the blackberry playbook??

    • Episaac

      Warning to all. NY Times app does NOT work with the April 2012 PlayBook OS upgrade. Keep your old OS2 if you want to keep the NY Times  app working.  It’s a shame that a RIM upgrade did this.

    • Nkb

      could you add AutoCAD WS? That would be very cool! Thanks!

    • Episaac

      Hey guys, NY Times App does not work with the new PlayBook update. It used to work fine with OS 2.0 but when Blackberry updated the OS to 2.0.1 the NY Time App stopped working. It won’t even load. Is there a fix for this or are we just out of luck ? Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    • Sandi861

      All I can say is Thank you!!!!  Thank you!!!!   Thank you!!!!   Thank you!!!!   Thank you!!!!  I have missed reading my Kindle books on my PB!!

    • Arlington Panganiban

      Big request/plea to convert the Adroid Sony Ebook reader to bar for PB please.

    • Tslemko

      Shortyz is an excellent crossword app for android and I would love to see it ported to the Blackberry Playbook. The Crossword lite that is available in the games section continually freezes my playbook, and it is very frustrating. I don’t know if Shortyz would work any better, but I do know it is an excellent app.

    • Tom Barnes

      Hi great work, there are 3 Apps I could do with to make my Playbook right, they are BT Fon, Lloyds Banking and T-Mobile. I would be really grateful if you could add those please.

    • Sean

      FT app has just been upgraded. Kindly update the ported version as well. As the current version on your website has stopped working. thanks.

    • I’m getting the error that ‘default file’ cannot be found.  Does this app no longer work with the 2.01 OS update on the playbook?

    • Sean

      I am getting the same error. FT have upgraded the native software I think which means the ported version needs updated too. Guys, please update this software. Thanks a ton. 

    • Chris

      Had the same experience as Sean. FT app doesnt work anymore. Getting the error message “Not Found The requested URL /playbook was not found on this server. Apache/2.2.3 (Red Hat) Server at Port 80”. Could you please fix this app, as it adds so much value to the PB! Thanks!

    • Arthurven

      I side loaded this and when I launched it it said that I needed to download the updated version.  Which of course I could not.  Any chance of updating the .bar?

    •  What app are you talking about?

    •  3.5 of what app?

    • Fwitkowski

      3.6 Version of Kindle for Android just showed up. Maybe this one will be good for converting to Playbook app.

    • Epyon52328

      I downloaded the android Pdf viewer but not sure how to get my pdfs to open in that viewer instead of the adobe reader can anyone help me?

    • Stephen_TX

      While the WSJ app works, it appears to save huge amounts of data on your PlayBook.  It keeps a running last 7 issues, but doesn’t appear to delete the old issues or images.  I don’t know if the native Android app does the same.

    • RXS

      aldiko 2.1?

    • Dan

      would love to try the new version 🙂

    • Has anyone else run into the issue with the latest kobo bar crashing when trying to load a book bought off of kobo?

    • Pierre5018

      Flipboard crashes often

    • Drewmg11

      DDPBInstaller shows me a red exclamation point with a “-4” when i try to install the latest version of flipboard that was downloaded from this site.  can anyone help with this issue?  This happens with some apps and not others.  I have tried restarting the playbook and it does not change the result.

    • Kevin Savage

      There needs to be more bouquets instead of brick bats here.

      Really well done, I appreciate the work you have put and the ease I now have in installing these Android favourites on my Playbook.

      Thank you.

    • Rextupece

      hi!is there anyone has a viber for playbook and BB10?or can convert viber from other format to bar?thanks in advance….

    • Tada

      3.5 for Kindle

    • Aldiko 2.2 is out with support for 7″ screens. Would be nice to get this converted to Playbook

    • Creativepubtalk

      Sideloading technique from PC to Playbook has worked fine. My problem is The Kindle App only half works – as if a number of the important Kindle App menu features are missing. The App found my Amazon Kindle UK library but once a book is loaded there is no touch sub-menu to bring you back to your library or alter the font etc – unlike say Kindle for iPad. So I can’t access or get out of and read any other book, all commands have vanished, and I will presumably have to delete the App, reload and find another book? Is this a technical glitch being fixed? Skype is the same – contacts found but I cant communicate free over WiFi – only over a dialled number which is not recognised in the UK.

    • Guest

      While Zinio has had their own Blackberry Playbook APP for a bit, certain magaizine publishers (eg, National Geographic, Smithsonian and others) have recently prevented Zinio from allowing subscribers access to their periodicals via the Playbook APP (Zinio was very helpful with a refund).  Access to these certain periodicals is still allowed via Zinio’s iOS and Android APPs.  Is there any plan to work on the Zinio Android APP?  Thanks for your consideration

    • Ccwalker1958

      I have downloaded and install next issue for playbook and BB10 but it will not load what’s the problem

    • Lp Com

      Many of the books I have in my library force the app to shut down any clues why it’s doing this? 

    • DasShrubber

      If you load this app on your Andriod or Playbook are you then not allowed to distroy the device?  This is actually a seruous question.

    • Luna Azul

      I converted RepliGo Reader to bar. It’s far better than any other e-reader app already pasted here.

    • Matoms Ebele

      Mine always says unable to find default app for all mh downloads.what am i doing wrong 

    • chriswilkes

      Moon+ is a great app. It could be a little difficult to navigate for some people though. It has a lot of features that can be configured, which depending on the user, could be a good thing or a bad thing.

    • Akash Patil

      I have purchased Moon reader pro for 4.99 US $. But I received the .apk file only. Now I have sought for refund. Good-e-reader should intevene into this matter with seller.

    • Lowxss

      With Pocket, I’m unable too see anything, it does allow me to sign into my profile then my PlayBook shows that it’s downloading my saved articles, once finished I go to the app to read any article but it only shows the Pocket logo. I even reset my PlayBook but nothing works. Anybody having the same experience? Any recommendations, please let me know.

    • Lowxss

      Hello fellow BB fans, and thank you Goodereader. Is anybody experiencing force closure messages with the Pulse App.? It all started recently for me, about 5 days ago, it loads, shows my feeds, I click on a a feed, it opens the article then I get the message Pulse has encountered an error and to force close. My Zite app works wonderfully, and all others, too. Please let me know. Thanks.

      P.S. Goodereader, please add the SPB TV app to the .bar file, it is great for watching live TV from all over the world.

    • Bakshi_kapil

      I agree to comments by Sean. The app keeps crashing and has stopped working. Have uninstalled and reinstalled – nothing,

    • Fgfd

    • Lowxss

      Is anybody experiencing foreclosure messages when launching the Pulse app? Mine will open then close.

    • Do any of these apps work with 2.0.1?

    • David Reid

      I have tried all the book readers and this one is by far the best, it formats the books into paragraphs instead of just one big mass of writing.  Once you set up the layout to your preference it is great.  lots of control over how you like to set up the page, i love being able to change the font size by sliding up on the right side.

      Is this latest release working correctly? The first time I uploaded it to the Playbook it showed the full days text and School agenda. It also downloaded Feb 2013 mags and more books, however, the Feb mags would not open and I have tried reloading it but now only get days text (no school agenda), no Feb mags or additional books. It would be helpful to know if there is a glitsch or not, Apart from that it is a great app!!

    • we updated the app to the most recent working version, i just opened a book and it was fine.

      Pocket 3.4.3 (and 3.4.6) on the Playbook will load and allow me to download list of articles I have saved with
      However, it only brings up the webpages, does not download or save off line content (which is kinda the whole point of Pocket).
      Has anyone been able to get the offline content to work? I have tried changing download location to “sdcard” and that doesn’t seem to do anything on the Playbook.

      Hey guys – thanks so much for providing this service!  Just wanted to drop a note that I’m having probs with the Nook app – I sideloaded it without a problem (Mac), I signed in, opened my library, but when I try to click on a book to read, the app has an error and shuts down.  It looks good other than that, except you can’t actually open the book.  Any ideas?  
      I realize this may not be your issue, but may be inherent with the app, but if you have any ideas, would really appreciate it!  Thanks so much –

      I’ve downloaded eight apps for my playbook so far and have only one that hangs . I don’t feel it’s the apps fault since it does work at times. Thanks for your efforts. p.s. can you convert the app that enables Wisconsin Public Radio Moblie?

      I just got the app and it won’t let me sync my stories onto my playbook… Can someone please help me out with why it won’t let me?

      I downloaded and installed the nook app for my Z10 without issue.  I was able to purchase and download a book through the app, but when I click on the book to read it the app states it has encountered a fatal error and needs to be shutdown.  Any ideas?  From previous post it looks like I am not the only one with this issue.

      I have downloaded the Kindle app, but for some reason it is eternally “checking [my device] for new items & syncing”. only part of the app that works seems to be the home screen and store. Any ideas on why this might be happenning?

      I can use Kindle, Overdrive, Kobo, ZInio without issue, but can’t get the 3M app to work. It is what my local library uses so I am stuck without it. Any ideas?

      feedly hangs on welcome screen on playbook. Other sideloaded Android apps work fine. Any ideas/suggestions?

    • partysmasher

      I keep getting an error message when trying to open up a nook book.  The message says “Sorry, the application NOOK (process bn.ereader) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.”  Each time I try, this problem pops up.  I’ve even tried restarting my playbook and have uninstalled the software and reinstalled it through my PC.

    • DivyanshuNandwani

      Please update whatsapp and the facebook app (it crashes)

      I’m having the same problem as @partysmasher. “Sorry, the application NOOK (process bn.ereader) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.” Anyone have a fix??

      Flipboard 2.2 doesn’t work. Version 1.9 doesn’t seem able to pull in new feeds. Niiice…

    • MattWhite1

      Why bother listing Feesdly when it crashes at the load screens? I appreciate what you guys do but the claim everything has been tested here is nonsense.

    • PortMacOnline

      I have installed both Feedly and Flipboard v2.2 on my Playbook 1 w/ OS v2.1.0.1526 and both are loading, but all I get is a black screen with the Feedly logo and the message ‘feedly BETA’ for Feedly, and a blank white screen with Flipboard. Both have the back arrow and Info box along the bottom, but no login or settings that I can find.
      I have the DDPB program installed and running fine, and Development Mode installed and running. I have also installed the HootSuite app which is working fine, so the basic setup works, thanks. It is probably something simple which I am missing for the Feedly and Flipboard apps, but I need both of them for work so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      I have downloaded and installed JW reader with no problem. However after I open this app it give me a message after 10-15 sec. : “Download Days Text Failed”. Not only that but also there is no Bible and the Magazines or only some of them can be downloaded in Epub format. The bottom row under Other Publications some of the books also can not be downloaded.
      Would you please help me with this

    • letterwiz

      just watched the tutorial on how to load good e reader tested apps to my playbook. Good tutorial but i have one question. Does the same process apply if your primary device is a MacBook Pro rather than a PC? IF not, can I download and use flipboard successfully directly to my playbook (from good e reader’s playbook app website) or via my mac? thanks

      I downloaded the JW app.  It loaded up great!…the first time….Now It only loads some magazines, everything else fails.  This is on my blackberry playbook.  What happened?  How can I fix this?  Please anybody???

      Many thanks to those who responded to my enquiry about installing Aldiko on my BP, I managed it by downloading Aldiko for Playbook and BB10 on my BB and then using DDPB to transfering it on my BP.
       Now for my 2nd problem. The version of Aldiko I have managed to install on my BP does not support Adobe DRM encrypted eBooks.Hence at the moment I can only borrow the encrypted books from the library (it does not support Overdrive) and read them on my HTC phone.  Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you

      Zinio works on my playbook, but the instructions are only about using keyboard and mouse. So I cannot enlarge the font size or zoom in on something. Can anyone please advise me how to get that done? Don’t want to read with a microscope….

      Hello there,

      Just wondering how I would get comics onto the playbook if I had installed the JJ comic reader app? I can’t seem to be able to find the files……which folder should I add it to?

      Thanks in advance!

    • Michael

      The Kindle app needs to be updated. It doesn’t support comics. I just downloaded the first of the Deadpool series, and it said it couldn’t be downloaded, because a newer version of Kindle was needed.
