    I am so frustrated. I installed the java, ddpb and did the development mode for my pb. I connect on ddpb installer. I download the app I want and then that is where I am lost. I do the 'add' on ddpb but it does not find the app downloaded to my computer. I played around a little and I used a converter first and it did find that file. The app was on my pb but when I would try to open it would say it is unavailable at this time. I don't even know what to do next. I am not a techie person. I just want the kindle app for when I am in the hospital. That is ALL I want. lol Does the ddpb convert the app I am downloading from .apk to the extension I need or do I do that separately BEFORE loading it into the ddpb?

    Very grateful for this Whatsapp version that is compatible with Playbook. It is working great and really can't imagine life without it now! Do have one minor question- is there a way to get rid of the message "This version of Whatsapp became obsolete on xxxx (date). Please go to Google Play to download the latest version." It always pops up and stops me from using Whatsapp after a month or two I use a newer version of Whatsapp. I get around it  by turning off the function "Set Date and Time Automatically" . I have a feeling this message has nothing to do with the version being obsolete but rather it is a bug.

    I've found some apps work and some don't, probably because updates from BB render them obsolete and authors haven't had time to update them. The Playbook has great hardware for video/audio and some excellent apps but if you're missing essential apps, it probably would make sense to exchange it for another type.

    I am new with the Playbook, trying to make it work for me.  But there are several apps I needed that of course aren't listed for BB. But I found them here.  I have followed the directions to download and I get the app on my screen. When I try to open it its black with the logo then poof, its gone. Not sure what to do, is this something that will get better in the future? like if I try back later? When I try to download on the tablet it downloads then tells me it is Unable to find default app. Not sure what to do, my husband says take the playbook back and get a different tablet. I really need just a couple of apps and I would be happy with it, it isn't for games or anything else. I really want to like it.

    This is so cool!


    But I've discovered a new cool way to fill out PDF forms too.


    Check PDFfiller.com. I was able to get forms and fill it out through http://goo.gl/CxQL5U.


    After you would have the capability of Printing, saving, sending fax and even SendtoSign. Amazing!

    Hello, I am new to all this "side-loading, bar files" process. I recently got a blackberry and am trying to side-load a couple apps available to androids. so far i followed all the steps: downloading chrome, imputing ip address, up loading bb10/playbook manager...and now I'm stuck. what do I do next?

    I do see a long list of apps listed on the playbook manager, but I want to know how I find the ones I want? do i need to put bar files on the list, if so, how do I do that..where do I find them? I don't really understand what a bar file even is


    If this helps, the apps I;m looking for are: google maps, pandora, words with friends and mindbody


    Thank you!!!

    @prakhar you need to install Java 32, just google for it and install. If you already have it installed, uninstall it and install 32 bit

    @Amboman  you need to go to your control panel, select user accounts and select  'user account controls on or off'

    @jkmidqatar If you want to install BAR files you need to download DDPB and use that to install the BAR file from your PC to your BB10 device.

    @Goodereadermike @jkmidqatar I did that. I downloaded the DDPB on my PC and used that to install the app. The app appeared on the Blackberry but when I tried to open it, it first shows a black screen with the BB logo, then goes blank. I redid it several times but nothing.

    Thank you for your quick response. Is this app impossible in order to work on Blackberry Playbook OS 2.1.0. 1753?
