Bugs? Report them in !

Verizon user: Verizon blocks IRC over 3G. You won’t be able to use AndroIRC, nor any other IRC client, over 3G, you will need to use WiFi. It’s not a bug! If you want to use IRC over 3G, I suggest you to use an SSH Tunnel, see here : (thanks Daryl !). Many users have also reported that using SSL bypass the Verizon filtering! Thanks everyone!

A new premium AndroIRC app is available on the market. Installing this app will disable ads on AndroIRC, and will help us paying our servers!

Starting with AndroIRC 3.2, a new permission is required to get access to your location. This is *only* for the new action “Share my location” and nothing else! Moreover, AndroIRC *does not* have access to a precise position (given by GPS), but only to an approximate one (given by the network).

What’s new on v3.2?
– added: “Share my location” action. It shares your location with the active channel or the active query. This is why AndroIRC needs a new “Your location” permission. It’s only used for the “Share your location” feature, and for nothing else!
– fixed: properly handle network disconnection/reconnection if the app. if in background. It may not be perfect yet, but it’s much better than before.
– fixed: connection issues should now be resolved for everyone
– fixed: if SSL options is turned on and the selected port does not accept SSL, automatically turn SSL off.

What’s new on v3.1?
– added: support for Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and better support for tablets
– added: on device without ‘search’ button, a ‘search’ icon is available on the textview, allowing easy nick/chan completion
– added: channel completion in addition to nick completion (‘search’ button, tab button or ‘search’ icon on device without ‘search’ button)
– added: Add to favorite option – you can now automatically store a channel directly from the ‘action’ menu
– added: support for vibration, sound and led for notifications
– added: show a notification each time a pv is received, not only the first time
– added: show a counter on the AndroIRC icon which count unread message since the app. is in background (does not work on HTC Sense, sorry)
– added: Spanish translation by Ronald Montenegro
– added: Greek translation by stefanou
– added: Korean translation by Pandaren Sweetbarrow
– added: BNC support
– added: /sleep command
– changed: optimized listview, with less memory footprint
– changed: you can now customized color by clicking on the fan icon on the textview, instead of using the context menu, which was not available on all phones
– changed: better support for connection/disconnection. fixed high cpu usage for good
– changed: redesigned channel management. You can now store FiSH key per channel and choose which channel you want to auto-join

    I tried to install Aldiko for Playbook. I did not receive any error and I have Aldico icon on my playbook. But when I try to run it I receive an error and I can only close the app (sorry the error is in Itlaian “Spiacenti. Interruzione imprevista dell’applicazione Aldiko (processo Riprova. Something like “Sorry. Unexpected interruption Aldiko app. (process Retry)

  • Maggie06

    Thank you very much git it working and got my Kindle Margaret

  • Good E-Reader

     Glad to Hear it!

  • Good E-Reader

     The App is a little buggy. You can use the Kindle App to side load in converted MOBI files you have done with EPUBS in Calibre and then copy it to the sdcard/books/ directory. Or install Moon+ Reader which runs well right now.

  • Maggie06

    Hi Michael I am interested in the textTwist 2 android app any chance on getting it for playbook and BB10

    Thank you very much for all your help  Margaret

  • Roberto

    I need to read my epub and pdf books and it seems Moon+ do not support pdf

  • Miceec

    To download and use the Kindle App for Playbook, do I first have to download and install “Essential Download – Load Android Apps on your Playbook”.

  • Good E-Reader

     Yes, for sure!! You need to do that to install ANY Playbook app. We just posted a video tutorial in that app section too, that visually walks you through what you need to do, incase the step by step written instructions are not enough! Let me know if you need anymore help.

  • Mransom66

    Any plans to bring Netflix app over would be great

  • Good E-Reader

     It doesn’t work, netflix will not work.

  • big

     Can you try mvideoplayer to see if it will work?

  • Djdesloges

    I would really like Words with friends and Scramble by Zynga. Enjoyed them in the previous “Android Player” 
    Thanks for the updated ddpb installer as well. :-)

  • Ericman

    This is great, but can this work for Macs?

  • photoman

    I followed your procedure but fist when I connect my playbook it wants to connect by it self. I need the same password and it connects. But when I open the installer and put in the IP and the password I get a message Incorrect IP or password. Please help!!!

  • Ravi

     I got the same issue.

  • photoman

    I just resolve the issue. I needed to intall Java. Once I installed the Java was able to download install the Kindle app and it is runing fine.
    As such the installer softwer works without the Java but to connect you need Java.
    Thanks a million!!!

  • Killer Heels UK

    Please get Skype with video chat! 

  • Good E-Reader

     Skype and MVideoplayer both won’t work on the playbook.

  • Good E-Reader

     Software right now does not work for macs

  • Good E-Reader

     Mvideoplayer opens but when you try and watch a movie it freezes, The app was designed for phones and not tablets, which means the playbook is unable to do anything with it. We tried.

  • Killer Heels UK

     I have side loaded a bar file with chat only. It’s a shame that with such a brilliant camera set up, Real portal is the only app to take advantage.

  • photoman

    I tried to load ES file explorer. I get an error message “500 Error3 while decompressing:invalid block type.
    Any suggestions ???

  • Pkemp

    playbook installer doesn’t see the playbook in the menu, while the windows explorer does, so obviously my installer program can’t load /install app I downloaded on to playbook. I did a reboot with same issue

  • Good E-Reader

     You might need to make sure The Blackberry Desktop software is open and you use the password you used when you enabled developer mode on your playbook. My windows explorer too did not see the Playbook in Windows Explorer until i opened the Blackberry Desktop software, entered my Code, and then it appeared.

  • Wmjunger

     Pkemp – I had the same issue. Use Windows Explorer to move the app from
    your Playbook to your pc’s Downloads file. Then use the installer to retrieve the app from your pc. From there, you just select the app and install.

  • Sogica67

    Does anyone have a list of all Andriod apps working on Playbook 2.0 ???

  • Good E-Reader

     All of the apps we offer in this section are all signed and verified by our staff to be working. Obviously the OS2 update just came out yesterday so there needs to be some time. The way Android apps on the Playbook work is that all apps that have javascript handlers can be converted easily. Apps like Skype and Netflix don’t work because of the way the apps were made.

  • Sophiacycles

    Hi there, Just a note that I used your site to download the Kindle App to my Playbook and it does not work very well at all! It certainly does not operate like it does in Kindle Fire or the Ipad. The book gets frozen and I can’t see all the books I was able to download from the archive anywhere. Any thoughts?

  • Medy

    Thank you very much. I followed your instructions and I was able to install’re the greatest !!!!!!!!!!

  • Snvicil

    Please add Real Player or any video player. Thanks in advance .

  • Alxmac

    I successfully downloaded kindle to my playbook but when I open the app it comes up with a recent applications window with the app I downloaded before kindle called wordpress

  • Bamberg

    i have the same issue. have you found an answer yet

  • Slcpag

    It does not work.  I get incorrect IP or Password error.  I have tried changing it and still get the error

  • Slcpag

    Yes I had to reinstall java

  • Sogica67

    Thanks a million. I followed your instructions adding Android apps to my Playbook, it was really simple. Reviewed other sites which were very confusing and difficult to follow. I will post my review on Crackberry site. We need to see more apps from Android. :). 

  • Good E-Reader

     Make sure development mode is on and you know your password you used. When you load up DDPB hit the SCAN button next to the IP selection and verify its the same IP showing up in your developer section. Note: You must load up the Blackberry Desktop Manager and enter your password in it for the Playbook to be recgonized by your PC.

  • Good E-Reader

     Yeah obviously, it needs some work!

  • Good E-Reader

     You need to make sure developer mode is on and you have it connected physically to your PC! I recommend to open Blackberry Desktop Manager and enter your developer password and then the playbook will show up under your normal hard drive. You will then be able to see it in Windows Explorer.

  • Good E-Reader

     Yeah the big problem is Android apps that use your microphone and camera don’t work with the Playbook  yet.

  • Bryan Sklar

    On Windows 7, you cannot explore to the PlayBook or other attached drives with DDPB Installer V8. Have tried on 3 machines. Attach PB, drive “V” mapped to the Playbook. Open DDPB V 1.0.8 – Win 7 asks if you want an iknown app to make changes to the computer (guess it is not a signed app). Say “yes”. IP address found password entered. Select ADD apps, it browses to just the local hard drives – no external or network attached drives are shown. Cannot see the “V” drive that I can see in Windows Explorer.

    Also, if it does work, it will show up under COMPUTER on Windwos Explorer, below your local hard drives – if it works.

  • Good E-Reader

    We just added a new video that answers some of the questions you have all been asking. 

  • Bamberg

    I was having some trouble as photoman.  Thought I had java but upon checking at the java website I discovered that 
     my java was not running properly. I reinstalled java and rebooted my computer. Iwas then able to connect thru the installer and install the ndroid app. 

  • Deepak

    I am not able to install the apps you have provided on my Playbook. I am not able to see the Playbook directory on the Add menu of the DDPB program. I tried to install the Bar file from my PC hard drive but it freezes at 50%. Icon appears on the Playbook menu but it keeps telling loading and remains that way. I have opened the Blackberry Desktop Software, entered password. I can see the Playbook drive on my directory when I check other applications on my PC.

  • Jason Cardenas

    when i click download it just gives me a bunch of messed up letters.

  • Good E-Reader

     You want to download these apps to your playbook using the Playbook Internet Browser and NOT your PC.

  • Good E-Reader

     You need to install Java on your PC, this fixes your error

  • Good E-Reader

     We can’t post PAID apps, because we do not endorse piracy.

  • Good E-Reader

     You can download easyPDF  for those files, Moon+ is good for epub.

  • Luvsql

    I did see my Playbook on my PC as drive Y.  I selected Google that I donwloaded onto my Playbook.  It connected with the IP and password I entered.  I did use the Playbook password too hence the ability to browse the downloads folder on my Playbook. I selected it and clicked install.  It shows checkmark that it was successful.  STILL does not show on my Playbook. 

  • Techbiz758

    Was able to follow instructions and download. However when my playbook is connected to pc with mass storage on i cannot access it. Despite, i was able to download apps to my pc and install via ddpb without any issues.

  • Will Robertson

    Thanks Goodereader! Twitter app worked nicely. Thanks for hosting these downloads.

  • Sophiacycles

    Okay….I followed  your new video.  Developer Mode is on, Java is downloaded, Microsoft updates are done, Blackberry Desktop software is open and password has been  provided, the DDPBInstall has been launched and connected with right password.  When I go to add the program the Playbook is STILL not showing under the hardware but just network. I notice on your video when you are addressing this issue, the Playbook is already showing under your hardware listings (at 5:10 on your vide  you can see this clearly).  Could there be any other reason why the DDPBInstall will not recognize the Playbook under the Computer Setting instead of only the  Network Drive from where information cannot be accessed?  I tried to install the Kindle app from the hard drive once I transferred the file using Windows from Playbook to my download directory and it did install but it does not work properly at all!!!  Can you suggest something else for the poor souls who have been trying to make this work for hours now?  Thanks so much in advance. 

  • florencio

    can you please convert chikka messenger and tunein radio pro to bar,

  • Susan

    Repligo PDF reader is a paid app and should be removed. Thank you.

  • Glenhaworth

    Hey, how about converting Logos Bible App for Android so I can use it on my PlayBook? That would be awesome!

  • Waynaise

    I have Kindle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Thank you so much for making it so easy!

  • Daniela

    i have downloaded dropbox on my playbook but i cannot open file. so when i go through ddpb installer it also will not work. what i am doing wrong?

  • Mossfoot

    Google Voice doesn’t seem to be working the way it should be.  

  • Djdesloges

    Sorry, I thought they were free

  • Lt2525

    Tried the Comic Rack application. Loads and opens OK, but is always looking for files on the “sd card”. Can’t seem to manoeuver to looking at files stored on the Playbook. Any help appreciated.

  • Supernatural_freak452

    Thank u soooo much for all the clear and precise instructions. best tutorial ever. I do have 1 problem though. so i got all the apps on my playbook but when i went in repligo reader none of my pdf documents showed up in it.

  • Good E-Reader

     Thanks, someone sent it to us and said it was free, we removed it.

  • fotyc

    Flickr – I sideloaded the BAR to my Playbook, running OS2, and it won’t let me sign in, it keeps telling me I don’t have a network connection which I do – I’m connected to my wireless and my other apps run fine.  Is there a known problem with this version of the Flickr app?  Thanks.

  • Paul

    Would be awesomely awesome to have the Google Reader Android app by Google ported over. I prefer it over GoodNews.

  • Lt2525

     OK, figured this out. You have to look at the file structure on your PB via Win file manager or similar tool. There is a folder called misc. Look in it and see a folder called android. In the android folder are subfolders which can be accessed from the app.
    Move your files into one of these folders and the app will see them.
    Still no way to see the main PB folders far as I can tell.

  • marcia

    Well it took a while – thanks mostly to my VISTA software’s peculiar way of storing files. I had some trouble with the installer — it kept telling me that my password was wrong. But I rebooted everything and it worked.

    But, after a couple of aborted tries (corrupted files) I did get this installed. I did a work around for Drop Box by copying the file to my PC desktop and then installing it as it’s tricky to find the file if you go thru the navigation on the installer – I finally figured it out. Do you have an installer for MAC? 

    The Kindle app seems to be working perfectly. I’m very happy about that. I never could get the Cloud reader to work – when I tried to download, it just shot me over to the Amazon page, and my playbook won’t opne the file. Doesn’t matter now that I have the app on the PB.

    Thanks so much for providing this service. I”m hoping to see more apps in the future.

  • Robert Henderson

    Hello not able to put these apps on my playbook pls help

  • SA

    Do I need a netflix app to watch videos off of netflix on my playbook?…If so, I’d like to request that android app be added to ur playbook market.

  • Langas78

    Any chance dc comics app will be ported?

  • Good E-Reader

    Netflix does not work on the Playbook at all, we have tried every version since the beta release. It is NOT compatible. Same with Hulu + and many other streaming apps

  • The_Adventist

    This is version 1.10.3 from 2010.

  • Good E-Reader
  • Good E-Reader

     Glad you liked it! We always add new apps everyday so keep on visiting!

  • Good E-Reader

    Google news did not work, which is why we posted the other one, so at least you have something. 

  • Good E-Reader

     many other versions simply don’t work

  • Paul

    How about either Yahoo! Finance, preferably, or even Google Finance?

  • Good E-Reader

    Tried. doesn’t work

  • Paul

    Bummer. Thanks for trying it though.

  • Good E-Reader

    Google Finance does not work, it does not fetch stock tickers or news. Yahoo finance works though.

  • Florin Dumitrache

    Do you need to have the .bar files present on the Playbook when installing or can they be downloaded from your computer and installed from a local drive? DDPB does not complain either way.

  • Good E-Reader

     No, it really doesn’t matter, if you know what you are doing you can right click save as and install from  your PC.

  • Paul Rose5

    You are life savers. Please convert Airforces Monthly and a decent remote desktop application

  • Florin Dumitrache

    Thank you !

  • Lucho1970

    Nothing that I install runs. I have downloaded and installed several apps. They install and the icon appears on my playbook. But when I try to launch, nothing happens. No error, just nothing.
    I had previously, months ago, installed the leaked android player. I thought I read something about that somewhere. Could this be the issue?

  • Burgerk280

     Just finished sideload of Kindle for Playbook and it worked great. The instructional video (along with the written instructions) covered all the bases and made it easy.  Best of all it worked first time, once I figured out what directory to port my existing library to.

    Great job. Thanks.

  • Jstares

    Why when I click download a page of encryption comes up and wont download the file???? 

  • Good E-Reader

     Yes you have a problem with the android emulator, security wipe or debrick your device.

  • Good E-Reader

    If you are downloading to  your PC right click and click save as. We recommend browsing this site with your Playbooks browser. 

  • Airmo25

    awsome work guys!!! i am wondering if you can upload an anatomy app (free one of course) from the following wwebpage?

  • Teg604

    Thank you for providing all these apps!  I’m having trouble getting RockPlayer to work.  If I try hardware decoding, it says the file cannot be played with System Player.  If I try software decoding, it says the application has stopped unexpectedly.  This happens with all the video formats I’ve tried. 

  • Ken

    Please make a .BAR file for tap tap revenge. And thanks for all you have done here. Very cool

  • Nick

     Everything appears to work, but there is no shortcut on the PlayBook to launch the app.  If I select the option to “run on PlayBook after finish” the app opens on the PlayBook and works, but I still don’t have a shortcut anywhere to launch it.  Any ideas?

  • Nick

     Nevermind, I reinstalled java and it seems to be working.  Thanks!

  • Not Tom Tom

    Fantastic! It was very straight-forward to setup (PC, Win 7 Pro) and took very little time for me to set up and install apps I wanted (Google Map!). Thank you for making this possible. Could I make a request? I’d like to get WiFi Analyzer for my PlayBook.

  • Jo

     Thanks Susan…
    Good thing I got it before you ruined the party 😛

  • piano57

    Thank you, Good E-Reader, for making these apps (and more to come) available.  Much appreciated!

     Sorry, I was referring to Tapatalk.  When I posted the comment I thought I was posting under the Tapatalk instead of this general area.

  • Gajitont

    Thanks,  Everything went smoothly, download, connection, IP and such.  When I click ADD from the DDPB Installer, I CANNOT navigate onto the Playbook directory, the Playbook is not visible (and it IS visible from a normal Windows browser.  What step am I missing ?

  • Good E-Reader

     If you read the instructions it said to either right click on the download button and save as to your computer or visit our website using your playbooks internet browser and download the programs right to your playbook.

  • Jstic

    Put in the IP of your playbook, don’t use the one from the Developer setup screen. Click on the little guy
    with the gear on his chest at the top of playbook screen, it will give you playbook’s real IP.

  • JB

    Hi, what about Skype

  • Good E-Reader

    Any app that requires use of your playbook mic or camera will not work

  • Kalu

    Going well until trying to find the playbook using the installer and cant find the playbook…have installed java on pc, have installed Kindle app on playbook but there is no drive for the playbook, any tips?  many thanks K

  • James van Oeffelen

    Trying to use DDPB, but all I get is ‘Incorrect IP or Password’ when I try to connect. I manually entered the ip, checked, double checked. Even made the password the number 1. Hard to get that wrong. Any ideas? Running on Win7 64-bit.

  • Miatared

    Thank you for this.  Skype would be fantastic to have – not sure how easy it would be.

  • Miatared

     Oops just saw a comment below…. using camera or mic is not possible with apps right now…

    In any event, great work.

  • Good E-Reader

     Its because you dont have the most recent version of Java Runtime. You need to download it, install it and reboot your computer with the Playbook plugged in.

  • Good E-Reader

     Try rebooting your pc, make sure you load up the blackberry Desktop Manager and type in your Password

  • James van Oeffelen

    No good. I have 1.6.0_31 (latest version of Java 6) installed and still have the same issue.  Does it require Java 7 for a 64-bit os to work?

    Can you help me to convert the Distro Engdaget to bar file ? 

    Thanks in advance

  • WaxW

    Could someone please convert the free Android apps Obenkyo, ChinaDict and GoldenDict to Playbook .bar format?

    Currently the only English-Chinese dictionaries available for Playbook are really very …. well…. lame.  I just downloaded (converted Android app) and it runs very well on the Playbook.

  • Good E-Reader

     We tried already and it does not work

  • Emanuelrcastro

    Hi there. Great work. Thanks. How about converting some turn by turn gps app? That is really the thing I have been waiting for on the playbook. There are some free ones on android market. Like tmndrive for example. Thanks.

  • Joe

    I can’t see the Playbook as a drive….

    I’ve watch the troubleshooting tutorial, do have the most current java and BB desktop software. BB desktop software is connected as well as DDPB software and both indicated “connected”.

    WIthin DDPB when I click “add”, I can’t see the playbook as a drive. (even after refreshing) but can see it as network drive. BB Desktop software is running “connected”

    When I look on my PC under computer, it IS there as a drive….. but not when I try to see it via DDPB.

    (Windows 7)


  • guest

    when I press add, I could not find playbook icon in computer section…

  • J Robertson

    i could not download with Firefox Nightly. It would open the bar file in the browser – a mess of course.  Google Chrome would work but I seldom use it as it is primarily spyware. 

  • AppleBerrySandwich

    I have the Blackberry desktop software up and running (and connected) but I still can’t access as a drive on DDPB Installer. I have updated Windows 7 and installed JRE 64. What could I be missing?

  • MHH

    Installed Rock Player Lite. But getting some errors. Anyone tried here yet???

  • Lorange
  • WaxW

    Believe it or not, there’s quite a few of us Playbook users who’d really like to see Obenkyo (for studying Japanese) and ChinaDict and GoldenDict (Chinese-English) dictionaries converted for use on the Playbook :) Thanks to anyone who can help!

  • Fmerazzo

    I cant download any app, the download link takes me to a strange page with lots of weird characters =(

  • MHH

     Please right click and click Save target or save link as. You will get the .bar file :-)

    Any way to get textplus app?

  • Good E-Reader

     Try Launching Blackberry Desktop Manager and entering the same developer password  you are using, this should fix the drive mapping problem.

  • Reggie

    Has anybody got Talking Tom ported to BB ?

  • Rachit

    You can create a folder anywhere in your local hard drive and keep the .bar files there. Then try to access it through the software. It will definitely work.

  • Joe

     Outstanding! Thanks Cynamonney….

    Shoshlyn, I had the same issue but Cynamonney had the answer. Just to clarify a little, some of the downloads won’t let you save directly to your PC and that’s not a problem. Save them to your PB, then cut copy to the folder you’re created on your PC. Then run DDPB….

    Worked flawlessly….

  • Good E-Reader

     You either need to load our website up in your Playbooks web browser to download the apps right to your device, or click right and save as the file name. For some reason BAR files are weird on our website, but APK android files work fine.

  • Good E-Reader

     it is likely because you associated BAR files locally with your Unzipping program. It it is a bar file but because you associated ZIP with it, it opens like a zip. It should work while installing on your playbook though.

    Sirs, I am debating on whether or not to “jailbreak” or “root” my PB to set it up as an Android Apps Centre.  However, after reviewing several posts on YouTube and reading many articles on how to do this, I have concerns that I may wind up doing more harm than good to the PB.  Am I best to “leave well enough alone” and download the Android Apps from the list you publish each day?  Or is there a site where I can download whatever “.bar” files I wish?  Your recommendations & advice are appreciated.

  • Phil

    Just wanted to let you know of a problem with the working of the NY Times App. I downloaded this App and installed it into the Playbook OS 2. No problem with the install and it all went great. The ported NY Times App opens up and displays the news just fine. Except for one problem: once you have gotten into an article you want to read, there is no way to get out of it and go back to the list of articles. While you can scroll sideways (swipe left or right) to get to other articles in that specific news section, there is no way to leave the section and go back to the main menu. the only way to get out of an article is to shut the App down completely and the start all over again. In the Android environment this problem is not there and you can read an article and then get out of it and go back to select any other article or section of the newspaper. You should experiment with this App on your Playbook to see if this problem occurs in your machine also. Please note that a new version of the Android was App was released (any way to covert that new version into a new .bar file?) . I want to commend the excellent work that you folks are doing. Kudos to you and thank you for making the Android APK’s into .bar files. Your instructional video was excellent, too. Hopefully you cam fix the NYT .bar App as it is not workable to start the App anew after every article. Thanks, again. Phil

    Hey Teckies at Good E Reader-
    I just want to say kodos to all you hard working people to make the .bar files for our P.B.’s. I see the list growing everyday! I haven’t found other sites doing what your doing.(if anybody knows,plz,clue me in.) I want to be able to help out but im not very computer savvy. I’ve read how to convert APK to BAR, but don’t understand all the steps.
    Anyhoo, I would like to ask a request.(I would do it myself if I could.) Their is a Chinese-English translation/dictionary called Youdao, I teach English in China and this is the BEST translation matrix out there. If you could could you covert it for use on the P.B. They do have the Android app, mostly with Apple since it’s so big here. Also, a Texas hold’em game?
    Keep up the awesome job you all are doing! It is much appreciated! :)

    Aldiko is super broken
    It installs. You cannot import books because there is no directory ebook/import on the SD card. 
    There is no way to make ebooks/import on the SD card. 
    There is no file existing on the sd card that can be seen with a file reader. 
    Most of the controls do not work on Aldiko. You cannot adjust the brightness with either the finger along the edge or the manual slider in settings. There is no exit button. You cannot get out of a book once you get into it except by exiting the program. I know you did this for free and it’s appreciated. but Please please, it you are doing it, please test it. I am eternally grateful for all your hard work and what you have done here is awesome. It’s just disappointing when it is so far out of whack.

    Astro File Manager is broken. 
    If you open it with the tab in landscape position, only a sliver of the screen shows on the right. The rest of the screen is black. 
    If you then rotate the screen, it will show the main menu. 
    If you try to go to the file manager, you can push internal storage and it just lights up the bar in yellow quickly then just sits there. If you try to push on the external sd card button, it does nothing. It also indicates there is no files on that. 

    You cannot shut this down, if you flick the screen up like you do to close a BB app, it gets rid of the screen, but it’s still running in the background. 

    BTW, I have both this and Aldiko on my Samsung Galaxy 7″ tab, so I know how they should work. 

    Again, Not griping, just trying to “playtest” so to speak so the problems can be addressed. So, Again, Thank you very much.

    I haven’t seen any requests yet for other music streaming apps like MOG and SPOTIFY. It would be AWESOME if you could convert these. I assume it’s better for you to obtain the apks, but please let me know if I need to contribute more and I’d be glad to do so!

  • Wlauber

    This is awesome.  I downloaded some of the apps yesterday afternoon (the 27th).  On the USA Today app, I am getting a “You are running an old version of the USATODAY application, please update your device via the Apple/Android App Store.”  Is there an updated app?  Also, the Amazon Mobile app is for the UK. Is there a US version?  Thanks for all your great work.

    This is odd. I was unable to get my Playbook into a browseable drive in the add menu on DDPB although it was showing as drive Z and full browseable through WinExpl. In any case, I was able to load some apps onto my PB but they won’t open at all. Has anyone else had this issue/

  • Cluckiel

    What app do i need to be able to read my downlaoded epub books?  i cant seem to be able to read my books on the tablet, what app do i need that i can use with out having to be online to read my free books?  i have the blackberry os 2.0

  • Jerry Mathis

    You can not do a video call with Skype on Playbook. The only thing you can currenlty use Skype for is to text your friends. Hopefully Skype will create a Playbook app in the near future.

  • Jerry Mathis

    This is the way I add apps which is a tad different.

    I connect my Playbook and log into Blackberry Desktop Manager and DDPB. Then I find the apps on Good E Reader that I want to download from my Computer. I then download the apps to my desktop.

    Once downloaded, I go to DDPB and click the add button on the top. I find all of the apps on my desktop and add them. Then I check next to each one of them in DDPB and click install.

    Once they are all done installing then you are good to disonnest your Playbook.

  • Jerry Mathis

    Try taking them off and readding them. I ahve no issues with them from GoodEReader

  • Vwredbug2000

    Having some problems with downloading the Kindle app. (Yes, I’m a noob) When I download the file, I see the zip file. When I extract everything, I don’t see a .bar file anywhere.  Can somebody offer any help please?

  • Sskk7861


  • Killer Heels UK

     Your downloading to your pc from the download link aren’t you? Don’t. Download the link from your Playbook. That will install as a .bar file. Don’t forget to ensure your playbook is in developer mode and you have also installed java. Then connect the playbook to your pc and use the installer from this site to sideload.

  • Killer Heels UK

     Try reinstalling java. That might help.

  • Marilyn

    first thank you for making these apps available to the Playbook!  they have rounded out my use of it, now provides almost everything I wanted from it.  One of the apps I downloaded was Kindle Cloud Reader.  When I go to the cloud reader website I can see my books but when I click on one I get the message “Error Opening Content  AN error occurred while opening the selected item .  Please try again later”  It always gives the same message.  Is this a problem with the app, the way I loaded it the other 2 I downloaded work fine) or with the Kindle website?

  • Good E-Reader

     You can’t downlaod but you can load in your own using Moon + Reader or Aldiko

  • Good E-Reader

     also you can right click on download and click save as to the your pc

  • Good E-Reader

    Yeah, it has to send you a txt to your smartphone or cell phone

  • Trebligyrag

    Excellent work … I downloaded these to my pc (not using my pb browser) and the install process worked fine.  Kindle and Google maps work great! :)  

    Where can I find a tutorial about porting or converting apps myself from apk to bar?  Thanks.

  • Rcglidden

    Thanks for the fast turn-around for SoundHound! Less than a day! It runs and looks great on the Playbook. However when I tap the orange “listen” button it give the error:

     “The application SoundHound (process com.melodis.midomiMusicIdentifier) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.”

    then I have to force close it. It also does the same thing if I tap the “microphone” icon. Everything else works great, it even plays song clips from the list of songs.

    I also got Shazam and it works perfectly, but it is not as full featured and does not look as good as SoundHound!

    You probably can’t do anything about it, but thanks for the effort !!!!

    Here is the link to the Android Market where the app is. The problem that I have always had with is that I don’t have an Android device to access to be able to pull down the latest APKs.  I hope this helps.

  • Good E-Reader

     Honestly we don’t have time to spend hours for the APK online and don’t have access to the market,if you want the app converted, spend some time and find the apk

  • Good E-Reader

     We fixed Path

  • Gad Zooks

    The Wikipedia app did not work for me. For several attempts Installer stalled at 50% but it installed W icon. App opened but home screen has no text. Tried search but Wait/Busy icon spins forever, never producing any result. Uninstalled and reinstalled until finally achieving “successful” install but with no resulting difference.

  • Jerry Mathis

    Do you have the current Java?

  • Nathan Filz

    It would be amazing if you could create an RSS feed that contained a list of the new apps you had listed on the site…

    I am very comfortable doing that if you’d like assistance.

    Kindle installed fine. Great.
    But Skypebeta install has ‘stuck’ at 50% for 15 minutes now. What should I do, just kill it and start again?  Will this leave a half installed mess on the playbook? 

  • Neil Hopwood

    As an alternative to DDPB try using BBH-Plus downloaded from here useful if you want to sign your apk files as well. Both this and DDPB working fine for me on Win 7 64 bit with 64 bit java. My version of DDPB is if that is any use?

It might be a good candidate for your very excellent list.  I would like to put in a request for a cbc app (english), tunein radio, national geographic and/or apps.  Again, thank you again for this excellent resource.

     Thanks for the reply. Can you pls point me the link to the video tutorial?

    From my home, with my laptop, I am currently using RSA Hard token to get into my corporate VPN.

    From my home network, i am not sure how you are proposing without adding all the VPN parameters with PB

  • Yuv

     Sorry.. go the link in the video section

  • Yuv

     Hi.. i viewed that video… my question is not to mask with a different IP, instead, how to login to my office-corporate internal network (VPN) using hard token. That has to be done in the VPN setting, which will assign a Dynamic IP of our internal firewall. But instead of these hassles, in ipad it is simple using Junos pulse app. I am wondering if we can have that to PB (porting from android) or do we have any equivalent already?

  • Rnswain

    Can not load Google Maps for playbook and BB10. DDBB shows the download, put checkmark to install, PC shows download has been installed on the Playbook but nothing appears in the app list on the Playbook.
    Any Idea why?

  • NellyG

    I have downloaded the DDPB Installer and it is asking for my IP and Password.  When I type it in, it say I have an incorrect IP or passowrd.  I think this is because in my Developer icon, I have 2 IP addresses.  How do I get rid of one?

  • Totoro123

    When I try to load ezPDF Reader Lite with DPBinstaller, I got ‘881 required signatures missing’. Could anyone help me here? Thanks.

  • Mdowling

    I agree. The lack of search seriously hampers the usefulness of an Adobe pdf reader.

  • NellyG

    I’ve installed DDPB Installer and successfully connected to it but when I click “Add” it does not see my Playbook to grab files from.

  • Jerry Mathis

    It would be great if you could either list the date they were added to the site or maybe add a new link next to each app as they are added to help keep track of the new ones or maybe an updated link next to apps that have been updated to a new version. :)

    We appreciate all that you are doing.

  • Wheretheroadends

    Hi all, just got my PB and I’m very happy to have found this site.  When I go to actually download an app, however, I keep going to a screen full of characters and nothing downloads.  I thought it might have something to do with the 32bit java instal I made to get DDPB to work but I uninstalled that and still the same.  Can anyone offer a fix?  Thanks, Payman

    I reloaded OS from BB desktop.  I still cannot browse to Z: within DDPB installer, but installing the apps from a directory on my desktop works fine.  Thanks for porting these titles. 

  • Jerry Mathis

    Yeah, I currently do that for date but nothing shows if an app was updated. It would be easier if there was an icon next to the logo esp now that it is split into groups.

  • Jerry Mathis

    Can we get the DirecTV app?

  • Good E-Reader

    You can install our blackberry Playbook client app, it tells you all the new apps we upload, you can install it directly on your playbook.

    I think you have to swipe down from the top and you can hit the arrow button on the bottom right hand corner.

  • Good E-Reader

     You need to side load it onto your Playbook.  You can then download any apps we offer directly to your Playbook and then you can side load them using BBPB Installer

  • George Creamer Jr.

    Does it have to stay in developer mode after loading the application?

    all the files on this site seem to be zip files. When i extract i get .apk file instead of .bar files. So they dont show up in my ddpb installer. I have been able to sideload .bar files from else where. Ami doing someting wrong?

  • Good E-Reader

    Try using a different web browser, we have had reports chrome and opera do this, use firefox. Or just download our app store client to your playbook and download/browse for apps on your device

     This won’t work because any app that needs the playbooks camera or mic won’t work.

  • Crospqr

     HORRENDOUS. Took me hours to figure out that it loaded and crashed the emulator in OS 2.0. I now respect the RIM Android Apps mroe than anything, as those third party installed through DDB as here just crash it. Only  a hard reser (power button 10 secs) will restart it. But this app in particular is a mega culprit.

  • Roo

    Hey all!   Great site.  The only part I am struggling with is having
    the playbook show up as removable media…not a network drive.  I
    followed the tutorial to a T but when I run the BB desktop software
    and everything syncs up…its still mapped the the network drive! 
    Grrrr.  So the loader is not seeing my playbook.  any suggestions?

  • Derek John

     Not to a more specific problem then what you are having but I have been side loading apps since PlayBook OS 2 betas and any problems especially with most of the apps that are on this site.  While some may not work properly none crash your PlayBook.  If you want to be more specific maybe someone will be able to help you.

  • belisarius

    The apps released through this site combine to crash when any 3 or more have been opened. The emulator then is fully crashed and only a restart of the Playbook would get it going. I also noticed that this problem does not occur when using android apps released through app world. Even doing a lengthy playbook reset of 2.0, nothing changes that apps such as Dolphin or Google Maps are so buggy the crash the entire emulator. Apps such as kindle did not cause any problems but even the ten app was freezing my emulator when ran in combination with other apps. When the freeze happens shutting the window does nothing. Restarting the emulator reveals just a black screen- no matter the app. Culprit could well be the emulator itself, but if the apps here cause such bad crashes I understand why rim has not adopted them and why best to wait.I also called rim with the issue, concealing the origin of the apps. They admitted a rare occurrence of crashes in some combinations, but asked me if I got the apps from another source. Non-Apple world apps result indeed in Kernel  and full freezes and hence apps need so much more time to actually pass the App world quality control.

    Hi there,
    After I open the DDPB installer, scan for the IP address and log in the password then hit Add (A) – my PlayBook does not appear in the listing.  It shows in my main directory and I can access downloads, etc. but not in the installer.  I’ve tried un-installing and re-installing, re-starting both the PlayBook and my computer with no success.  Any ideas?

  • Dogmum

    No matter what I do, I have followed all the instructions, ensured my Windows updates are done, have BB desktop open, etc., the Playbook will NOT display in Explorer within the Essential download app.  It does display in Windows Explorer when I open it outside the app, but will not display so that I can transfer any files.  Any advice please?

  • Robharvey

    Might be fixed, however i doubt it is the 64 bit software. I have 64 bit running on 64 bit macine, works flawless

  • Robharvey

    Mee too.. whats up with that??

  • Robharvey

    Restart playbook, or check IP. If IP address is wrong it will go through the process, jut installing it to a NULL location though.

  • Robharvey

    Maybe i have toomany tabs, but i thought this was preinstalled on PB?

    You dont need the emulator. Android is native now. THAT is the whwole problem.

     I am having exactly the same problem. 

  • piano57

    Yes, it is. But, when I try to use the Android version of Evernote (yes, there is a Pb version, but the Android one has a more comprehensive interface), there is no way to read doc/docx or other files, such as .pdfs. I thought perhaps an Android Docs to Go was needed. If you have a work-around to suggest, I would be grateful. Thank you.

    what browser are you using? I found IE caused problems. Try Chrome or Firefox.

  • Todd

    Hello.  I was wondering if you have considered adding Sugarsync to the above list?  Thanks in advance.

     Once the software is downloaded and installed, the browser is not part of the equation anymore.  So not sure how your suggestion plays in to the problem as outlined. 

  • Cosmonaut

    The Bloomberg app installs BUT does not start.

  • arlanda

    PB will always show up as network drive either by cable or wifi on Windows. If Windows Explorer have successfully mapped the PB to a drive letter, then there’s no driver issue.. does the loader (DDPB?) automatically enter the IP address for you after hitting on the scan button? If not, you’ll need to enter these info manually.

  • Av Raham Benperekh Arias Ocamp

    To whom it concern:

    This will work with playbook updated to 2.0?

    Best regards!

  • Zakorth

    as a matter of fact it will only work if you have OS 2.0

  • Zakorth

     this was answered before by the admin..
    atm no video calling apps will work with PB..

  • Jpgrad

    Has anybody adapted the GoToMYPC android app?

  • Zakorth

     Ok my friend here is what you have to do..

    1. Create a Folder on your PC or laptop
    (doesnt matter where or what folder name as long as you know where it is)

    2. Try to download the apps directly into your PC
    (you will just have to RIGHT CLICK and then SAVE LINK AS into the said folder)

    3. Follow the steps to Sideload Apps into PB
    (this one i suppose you knew already)

    4. Now for adding the apps in DDPB Installer
    (Select the folder you created in your PC)

    5. And youre done!

  • Auouywonz

    So you can download from the App Store but you can’t install from it, right?

  • Good E-Reader

     Yes that is correct. Many people have BAR files on their playbook downloaded from other places that was initially downloaded from the Amazon App Store and need the app store installed for the app to work properly.

  • Atilla

    When you click on any app there’s a paragraph which say any problems or comments let us know. I post a question asking for some help. It’s cool you didn’t answer my question, but you didn’t have to take down my post. Thanks anyway, maybe I should ask you to put up app that you already have up. Guess that the only question you answer.

  • Good E-Reader

    yes, sometimes. Mainly the versions we have work. often the newest versions of the apps don’t work, so in many cases we try the latest app and then move down each release until we find a working copy and them post it here.

    Anyone have Mobo Player for Playbook?

  • marcia

     I had that problem with VISTA – finally found the folder by trial and error. You have to navigate to it thru a dropdown that I think is located in a bar at the top of the nav window. For some reason it doesn’t show up in the “Network” folder. (I’m on a MAC now, can’t check). I also found that downloading the files to my desktop and sideloading from there worked fine. I downloaded Kindle and Dropbox – they both work perfectly; The lack of a Kindle app was a real disappointment when the new software was launched.

    Thanks so much for providing these. They make my Playbook much more playful.

  • Shannon

    i downloaded a few apps to my playbook – eg sugarsync & flickr – and my keyboard’s keys do not match with what i want to type. eg when i type H, S comes out instead. also, the layout comes out wonky, it doesn’t align with the playbook. like half the page can be seen and half cannot.

    Really appreciate the good work you are doing here!  I downloaded some of the apps (like Amazon Kindly, Moon Reader, RockPlayer, Dropbox) and side loaded them using DDPB. The installation completes successfully and I can see the app icon on the home screen. But when I try to launch the app, nothing happens. There are no other symptoms like frozen screen etc. The app simply refuses to launch. Please help!

  • Gregd

    Did you type your password on your ipad when prompted?

  • Good E-Reader

    Like physically, the playbook is not in front of  you and has disappeared? You have it plugged into  your computer? You opened up Blackberry Desktop Manager and entered your password?

  • Gregd

    I meant  Playbook

  • Conrad

    I did all what the video said to do. I get connected to DDPB with no problem. When I hit”Add” My Playbook is not listed, only my “C” drive. Playbook is not showing up in the list.

  • Conrad


  • Good E-Reader

     When you load DDPB and hit scan does it show the same IP address that the guy in the top right hand corner of your Playbook says your IP address is? Keep in mind, there is two IP addresses,  you want to  use the first one.

    Also, try swaping your USB connection from the front one on your PC to the back one.

  • Ubest_888

    Anyone know how to use Google voice on Playbook. It seems it only has voicemail inbox. Can you any please advise how to open phone dial pad? Do I need application like Google voice dialer or something like that?

    BTW. google maps work for me. only thing is cannot find my GPS location.

  • Conrad

    Showing the same IP address as top right of Playbook and tried different usb connection. DDPB is still not detecting the playbook. I deleted DDPB and reloaded with the same results. Connects to Blackberry Desktop Software with no issues. I am stumped?

  • akoito

    I had the same problem but what I did I saved the bar files to my PC (any folder). Open DDPB, then add and install from the files you save in your PC, not from Playbook.  That’s it.

  • zakorth

    can we try and get Airpush Detector please.. coz this might detect the source of the airpush notification.. thanks..

    plz can u upload any wifi printing app for playbook and BB10


  • Sudiptalaha

    any Suggestion on this?

  • alexandertrevor

    A quick tip for most of the apps here, try launching them from portrait view.

    For a few of the apps I downloaded, I was not able to start them and would only get a black screen. However, in portrait view the app would launch, and even better that after that initial launch the apps would work fine in either orientation.

    I’m not sure that’s a fix for everything, but just a trick that helped me.

  • Me

     So how can we get the adobe reader? any idea?



  • Gregd

    The Seagate GoFlex Media app for android would be nice too. 

  • KillerHeels

    If you can get me the apk file to Breezy for Android I can see if it can be converted……That is a printer over Wi-Fi network.

  • KillerHeels

    Yes there is a great tutorial on crackberry’s website – look for Johan99 posts. That’s how I learnt to do this.

  • KillerHeels

    World newspapers has this already I think.

  • KillerHeels

    You can’t. You just have to wait and see if a more recent version is converted and works. Remember these apps are from apk files and have to be converted for the PB.

  • KillerHeels

    Thanks for the tip. I have found that the black screen will load…..eventually. It seems that some apk converted files are a bit slow running on the PB. Compatiability issues perhaps?

  • zakorth

    thanks for adding AVG but it cant detect the airpush ad..

    ok its really pissing me off now.. the “Battery Upgrade Notification” keeps on showing up..

    reinstalling may solve the issue, if not
    then try to download the bar file again then try to install.

    I already encountered many case like this, for some instance I need to just reinstall, but for other case I need to download again the file and install. Make sure to check the file size after you download it and compare it with the original file size of the app

  • Nice work

    First of all i want to thank you for great work you are doing here. You guys have made me like my PB more…. keep on with the good stuff. Second thing i tried installing the yahoo messenger plugin but yahoo messenger still does not make video calls is there a specific way of installing it?

  • A_V__D

    Thanks a lot. Over 200 apps.

    Can you guys try “Stick Cricket” please?

  • Not Tom Tom

    Use your PC and transfer the SMC files to your PlayBook or use your PlayBook Browser to download the file (SMC and not ZIP) directly (will go into the Download folder you will have to move it to the correct directory). I personally find it easier to transfer the SMC via PC.

    Go back to the SNES Emulator for PlayBook download page, read the instructions and that’ll get you going. As a note, the path to the ROM is different for me (under Misc folder and not the account folder). I am guessing the instructions were Android specific.

  • Good E-Reader

     You have to put them in a specific directory. When you open up the SNES ROM  file to download it in the description it says where exactly to put the files on your playbook

  • vin6006

    Hi GoodEReader Team – Great work! I’m sure someone asked this before but is there a version of your software available for Mac? Since it is written in Java, I’m not sure how hard it would be to port over to Mac. Look forward to your response.

  • n00b

    i had this same problem as well, n00b error on my part.  i downloaded the 32 bit but i did not install it…duh.  it connected flawlessly after…thanks again, the comments really help with troubleshooting.


    Could you work on some free apps like AutoCad WS, La Presse Mobile, TuneIn Radio, GoodReader or RBC Mobile Banking? And some decent PDF reader? None of the above pdf readers are coming close to the native app on Playbook in terms of quality of display. Unfortunately, that native app is missing some important functions. Thanks!

    “Before you copy apps to your computer…” –


    Throw-away line, at end of video. The whole notion,
    here, is to install them to Playbook, only, FROM the
    place, ON THE PC COMPUTER, to which you have
    THEM TO THE PLAYBOOK. This was the only way
    that worked for me, but it was hardly mentioned, AT
    ALL, in the instructions. Rather important, for me.

    Thanks for all of your hard work, though, in these

  • Chili Boots

    I had to copy the apps from the playbook, after down-
    loading them there, and hooking the USB wire to both,
    then, copying the apps to a new folder on Windows.

    I browsed to that Windows folder, using Windows and
    the DDPBinstaller, selected those, copied, apps in the
    new Windows folder, told the DDPBinstaller to install
    from there, clicked on the “run on playbook after finish”
    box (toward bottom, left), let it fail (apparently), and
    then it installed them onto the Playbook. They are in
    place on the Tablet, and they work.

  • Chili Boots

    Thank you for clarifying that. I had no idea
    what he was talking about. One doesn’t
    “print WiFi”. We need to be very precise
    about these requests. Common Courtesy.

    Exactly correct.

    Hello, I downloaded the DDPBinstaller.msi, but when trying to open it, there is an error message:  This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package. Please help!! I have Java installed btw!

  • Frustrated

    Is anyone having problems with the app icons not showing up on PB after DDPBInstaller has been run?  The .bar files show up in the downlaods folder on PB but no icon is on the PB screen.  If I check the option to run the app after installation, it opens on PB and works just fine.  Once I close the application, there is no way to reopen it.  One thing I did notice is that PB is not showing up in the Windows Explorer box when I click the “Add” button on DDPBINstaller even though it is recognized in a seperate Windows Explorer window on the PC.  The instructions say you are to download the app onto PB and then designate the .bar file from PB on the “Add” window in DDPBInstaller.  Anyone have any idea why it is not working?

  • MHC

    My question is this.
    When I click on Add in the DDBP installer my Playbook does not show up anywhere.  The DDBP has read the IP address and it indicates that the Playbook is connected.  It does show when I click Explore on my computer.  I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the Essential download app to my computer.  Also went from Development mode to regular and back to Development mode (basically uninstalled and started from scratch but still no success.  Any thoughts?

  • Nabeel


    I have downloaded and installed most of the apps but there are not working. When I tap on the apps, no response and nothing happens. Any suggestions?

     Load up Blackberry Desktop Software and enter your developer password and your playbook should show up under your Network drive and be clickable.

  • Pat

    Question: How functional is the AVG app? Forgive me if I sound like a noob, but since it’s running in the Android Runtime Environment… does it work (ie scan and protect) only the Android environment-part of the PlayBook, or does it work on the entire PlayBook?

  • Sdmilliken

    Would you be able to do the MLB At Bat 12 (Blue Jays)  and the Calgary Flames?

  • Gregd31

    Can you do this Southwest Airlines app please?

  • MHC

    Yes I tried that too.  Meant to say that in my first msg.  Just tried it again.  Blackberry Desktop shows connected and ready to syn.  I had to enter my password with the Desktop software too.  So that seems ok.  When I click on Explore the Playbook does show as a “Y” drive.  The Playbook is also recognized in the DDPB installer.  But when I click on Add I can’t find it.  After clicking on Add I click on Network and the only thing that show is my laptop.  It seems like I’m missing something simple.

    May I suggest these following improvements to this site:
    1) implement separate comment system for each app rather than consolidated. This will help to make it easier to track comments specific to the app.
    2) implement rating system per app (similar to BlackBerry App World). Sort by popularity within the category.
    3) display categories at top which we can quickly jump the big list (expand/collapse the “Popular Downloads” section)

    i need help i cant do this it says wrong ip address or password???what do i do? anyone

  • Gary

    Does it take installing apps when they reside on the Playbook itself a LONG time to complete with DDPB Installer to you guys? 10 minutes in only 50% done with 2 apps.

  • Linda E Clark

    Great to have something to finally get Kindle on my Playbook. I was using Cloud Reader until os2 came out and then it stopped working. Thanks a bunch!!

  • Gary

    I keep trying to install the greader app client and it gets to 100% and then says “-4″.  When I try to launch the app the player starts but the app never shows up.  What’s going on here?   Traditionally I’ve always installed apps from the PC and not from the playbook and some have worked and some haven’t.  Now, I’m trying to strip everything off and follow the instructions on this site and I can’t even get the client itself installed.  Any ideas would be awesome!  Thanks.

    SpeedTest for Playbook is buggy.  Tests download speed fine, but errors out when trying to test upload speed.  Works flawlessly on iPhone and iPad.  Hope this one gets fixed soon.

  • Phil Newcombe

    Hi! Thanks for the wonderful work you have done converting these apps. I have sideloaded LinkedIn, Google Maps and Kindle and am delighted with them.
    Have you considered converting the android app at all please?

  • arlanda

    yes I have similar issue with app icons not showing up after DDPB said that the installation was successful. Sometimes it is necessary to repeat several times before the icon will show up. Even the uninstall option doesn’t work too well… either DDPB or PB is buggy.

    I have come across a few Android app that won’t open. That’s why I made the suggestion to the forum moderator to improve their site to have a separate comment system for each app so it’s easier to report problem/issues.

    To moderator:
    Please add a thumb up/down button that will allow us to quickly report if the app is working or not.

  • arlanda

  • MHC2

    Hi; I’m still having trouble finding my Playbook after I click on Add in the DDPB installer.  I’ve turned on Development mode, selected a password, connected the Playbook to the computer, opened up Blackberry Desktop Manager and logged in with my password, The DDPB says its connected to my Playbook.  When I click Add it only shows my C drive, Recovery drive, Back up drive and DVD drive.  When I click on Network, I only see my laptop listed. When I click on Explore from my Start button it shows my Playbook as a “Y” drive.  But the Playbook doesn’t show anywhere in the Open window after clicking Add in the DDPB. What am I missing?

  • Xavier Flemmings

    Read this, I followed this and havent had any problems.

  • Asung89

    Hi, I’ve installed everything and I can connect my PB to my laptop but when I click on Add on the DDPB screen, the explorer pop up does not show my PB as drive Z even though on Windows Explorer everything is fine. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks.

  • Leo

  • Asung89

    Yeah, same here. Everything was working great until I got to this step. Uninstalled everything and reinstalled but no change.

  • Xavier Flemmings

    You said you open Desktop Manager, not sure if you are to open it, just dismiss it when you see it pops up on your computer and see if that makes a difference. 

    Have you downloaded JRE btw?

    everything has connected properly and the playbook shows up on “My Computer” as a selectable drive, with all folders showing and accessible, including the “download” folder.

  • Gary

     I wanted to update everyone here that installing 2.0 fresh using Desktop Manager and then loading apps from PB initially as the site recommends worked fine.  Apparently something must have gotten messed up with the android player from all of the sideloading from the PC itself and it needed a good clean.   To install a fresh copy of the PB 2.0 turn off playbook, hook pb to pc and launch desktop manager.  Choose Update when the connection fails and follow prompts.

  • Brother

    I really like the Kindle app – it is very well done and reads Amazon and mobi books perfectly – but it doesn’t stay in memory when you switch to another app.  I suspect that is because it is just an Android app that has been made to work on the Playbook, rather than being optimized for the Playbook operating system. Good job anyway.

    I tried a lot of the above apps. What works really great (almost better than BB native apps) on my Playbook are: LinkedIn, Kindle, Twitter, Readability, La Presse Mobile (french only), Movies by Flixter, Skyfire, Amazon, Google Maps, National Geographic, Wikipedia, Huff Post, Daily Dilbert, TripAdvisor, Read It Later, Basketball Shot, Financial Times. 

    Almost none other app (didn’t tried religious ones or those intended to non-american markets) worked for me. I mean, they open and start to work somehow but somewhere along the way they crash or take a really long time to load, or don’t really fill up their role after a day or two. Mainly the big (most used) apps are working. The rest are not so great. That shows somehow the quality of work put by original designers into those apps. If they work in Android Player, and on iOS and on Android Native is because they are quality apps.

  • MaxMatambo

    Hey Good-E-Reader team, it would be so amazing to have the Android OneNote app for the Playbook! Do you see a chance to introduce it? Thanks in advance!

  • Talkatone


    Please don’t even try to run android version on playbook:

    1. There are number of bugs in networking code in Android Player which prevent Talkatone from connecting.
    2. Android version uses native code to do audio processing which is NOT supported in android player on Blackberry
    3. There is number of audio-related APIs used in the app which are not supported by RIM.

    That said we were able to tweak the code to run on Blackberry and despite of RIM’s claim that VoIP is not supported get audio call going. (no compression, no echo cancellation, so it is usable only over VERY good networks and ONLY in headset with built-in microphone).

    However, the real bummer is absence of Address Book access !!!! Not having access to address book is critical and we decided to halt all efforts until RIM improves their Android Player to expose at least address book to android apps (and may be ***wishful thinking**** allow to recompile native code for their TI CPU).

    p.s. unauthorized reposting of app IS COPYRIGHTS INFRINGEMENT.

    I followed all the steps and am able to load android apps to PB but they do not run except for one of them (the Doom game).  The other app icons show up on the PB but when I press them, nothing happens.  Is there something I’m missing?  Why does the Doom game work but nothing else?  help!

  • tony

    DDPB installs only .bar files no apk files
    if u want to install the .apk files u have to convert it to .bar

  • tony

    in other for you to to use the DDPB,
    1. the first step is to go to security under the menu of your playbook and then switch on developers mode
    2. then enter your password then you can plug in your playbook to your pc nd do ur stuff

  • Good E-Reader

    You need to install Java 32 Runtime on your pC

  • Mark A

    I am having trouble connecting to my playbook through the DDPB Installer. I followed all of the instructions listed, but when I scan the IP address and then enter my password it tells me that I have the wrong IP address or password. I have tried multiple times and am sure I have the right password. The IP address is also correct… For some reason, however, my playbook has listed two IP addresses (I have tried both and neither work). Any ideas on what could be wrong?

    I installed
    BB Device manager, Java 64 bit, dotnet framework 4, DDPB installer. I’m running win7 home premium sp1 with 64bit. I can’t connect DDPB with my playbook. With the device Manager it works perfectly. An advice?

  • Seppies Welt

    It says I have the wrong IP address or password. 

  • Matthewchoy7

    the app tells me to re-install it

    Solved: it has to be Java 32bit, 64 wont work.

  • Iamsiaho1

    ok, an odd problem. the installer program will not connect to my playbook.
    i hit scan, it gets the IP address, i put in the password, and i get the error “incorrect IP or password”i’ve typed in the IP manually, same issue. i turned off and turned development mode back on, using the password to turn it back on, no problem, go back to the program, no luck, same issue.blackberry desktop software needs the password now to access the blackberry when plugged in. no problem, i put in the password, it connects….am i missing something? i watched the video after the issue happened, and yeah, i followed all the steps

  • Iamsiaho1

    updated java, it now connects.

    however, though in windows explorer i can find my playbook, when i click “add” in the program and look for my playbook it isn’t there.

    if i figure this one out i’ll reply with info as to how (so if anyone else has my issue they can see how i fixed it)

  • Iamsiaho1

    ok, last update. i do not know why, but nothing i can do makes my blackberry appear in the installer program. 

    however, i tried something else. i downloaded the .bar file i wanted to my computer, selected it from my c:user(whatever)downloads, and told it to install to my playbook.

    and it did. so maybe it’s not the recommended way, but for now it works

  • Jaguar

    Thanks again for your No answer!!!!

  • Jaguar

    Thanks again for your NO answer !!!!

  • Good E-Reader

     No problem. if you read the first line in the skype description, it says it does not work with the latest firmware update. Don’t get mad at us, because you can’t read.

  • Leon Walker

    I have been trying to download some apps to my blackberry playbook but when I check in the download section on my pc it shows only some off the apps when i press the add button on the DDPB installer. This is very strange as when I go into the download section through my PC all the apps are there. Any ideas how to rectify the problem.

    WHen I try to connect the installer with my playbook, I get a message that the password is wrong. I am using a standard PW and I don’t believe I put it in wrong. The pPW allows me to open development mode on the PB. Is there some way to change the PW on the develop. mode on the PB to be sure I put it in correctly? Is there a problem with the app on the PC? Thank you for any help.

  • Dukesfan

    Hi, I am trying to load the Draw Something Free app onto my Playbook but it downloads as an .apk file & I can’t seem to convert it to a .bar file. I am using a virtual windows on my Mac & my Windows doesn’t see my Playbook as such. It does connect on the Mac side & as long as the file is a .bar file I can use the ddpb installer (which is on the Windows side) with no problem, but if it’s an .apk file my DDPB Tools doesn’t want to convert them. Will I be able to install this app onto my Playbook & can someone help me please? 

  • Ingrid_siobe

    I have a question.  Everything is working good. but if i “click” on  “ADD” in the DDPB programm it can’t found the “blackberry playbook (Z)”   But on the pc i can found it. what do i have to do now?

  • Cherelle

    It works 😉   but is it possible to make “Sea Star” (its a game) for blackberry playbook? that would be great 

  • Cherelle

    ohhhhhh…. I’m sad….. Nothing is good…. The apps are not able to open on my playbook. I have P:E What’S APP   but if i want to open it, i only can see “initializing, pleas wait” and nothing happens. after a few second the app will be closed.

  • Dj_sntiago2002

    Hi.. I have Android apps that i wanted to be transferred to my playbook.. i have a Medscape app and other apps related to medicine that i wanted to put them on my playbook., is it possible to convert them?

  • cliffdweller1

    I’ve downloaded and installed the DDPB application, but can’t connect to the Playbook; the password for Development Mode is rejected. It’s the same password that correctly sets the PB to Development Mode, so not sure what else to try.

    I have the .BAR loaded on my PC, also moved it to the Downloads Directory on the PB. But becasue I can’t connect DDPB, the Install icon is not active.

    Any thoughts?

  • Dpmore

    I had the same problem as cliffdweller1. I finally gave up and installed DDPB on my laptop. Everything worked perfectly. Only problem has been that a couple of apps caused my PB to be unstable. I uninstalled those and solved the problem. I don’t recommend installing more than one app at a time and trying it separately.

  • Dukesfan

    that happens to me too sometimes when I run an Android app after using it for a while or running an app for the first time. I usually restart my PB & it works then again. You can give that a try. 

  • Lionel SANCHEZ


    Everything went ok and i can see the icons of my apps. When I want to launch any of them, two choices appear :
    Follow with :
    -Honeycomb Launcher

    I can choose one or the other, my apps won’t run and won’t appear anywhere.

    Could you help me please ?

    Thank you.


  • cliffdweller1

    Hey Ingrid, did this work for you?
    Good E-Reader, I already have JAVA loaded but just to be sure went to the mediafire link you provided, and re-installed form there. Unfortunately it didn’t alter the outcome, I continue to get the same problem as I posted yesterday, and also as Ingrid and others have posted on, i.e.Incorrect IP Address or password.
    Looking forward to using some of your apps soon, I hope.

  • Werner Patels

    Way too complicated. Why still bother with the Playbook. Both Galaxy Tab (10.1 and 7.0 plus) and iPad are ideal and perfect tablets – PB, especially since 2.0 sucks, is slow, surface is extremely slippery, etc. Gimme a break, folks, and wise up: PB is a thing of the past no matter how hard you try to come up with convoluted ways of putting “Android” apps on it …

    In DuaDen Playbook Installer, I scanned my playbook IP address and then entered the password and it fails to connect saying incorrect IP address or password. I tried scanning it again and checked the password many times, yet the same occurred. What should I do?

  • Zeus

    Needed Java. Got it.

  • Itsme

    The “Good e-Reader Playbook App Store Client ” is still an APK file?

  • Good E-Reader

     Sorry about that, we just updated it a few minutes ago and uploaded the wrong version. It is now a BAR file

  • The usual suspect.

    Can you please update this app to the newest version 2.2.9? I will definitely send a donation if you’re able to help me out.

  • Good E-Reader

     what app are you talking about?

  • dglynnarch

    Connected PB to Win 7 PC, fired up BB Desktop Software, entered passwords, etc.
    Can’t connect DDBP Installer with Playbook – I get the message “Incorrect IP Address/Password.
    When I check the PB for IP address via Guy w/Shirt, it shows two IP Addresses.
    Checked CAPS, etc.
    I downloaded and installed the latest JRE.
    Still can’t connect. Ideas?

  • ibo

    I was able to install the app but when I run it, it asks me to reinstall. I just got my playbook this week so it has the latest OS. Anyone got it working?

  • dglynnarch

    OK – found out the version of Java I was running was outdated. Made sure it was current, and voila! was able to connect to PB and install apps. Note that in the file tree used in the installer program, the PB shows up as another computer – not the drive it is mapped to in Explorer.

  • Patryk79

    I followed the instructions to a T… none of these apps work on my playbook.  none!  I’ve tried downloading to the playbook and installing from there with your directions.  I’ve tried downloading to my pc and going from there.  Nothing.  The app icons appear on my playbook, but when you touch it, nothing happens.   Do I need an app launcher or what?

  • Sewnut

    I like the possibility but in reality I had to download the book I was reading 3 times while I was travelling. It ended up costing me roaming data charges, so reading the book I owned on Kindle cost me $21 in data charges. I was not very impressed. 

  • Ogie

  • deadleg2

     At first I had the same problem Aman_rfd,

    I double checked all the settings–but the promised ‘man with green shirt’ never appeared.

    I turned off and then on again the ‘development mode’, removed and reset the password, checked the IP’s again, re-installed DDPB, downloaded an app from goodereader on the tablet, and  following the step by step instructions had no problem downloading Skype for my wife’s Playbook..

    The whole deal took me (a semi-nerd) a good couple of hours to set up, but now it works fine. And it’s worth the effort, because once done, now you’re free to avail yourself of the thousands of wonderful Android apps. :)

    Wishing you good luck, and a bit of patience. You’ll figure it out. btw, I’m Win7, 64bit, and OS2 on the tablet.

  • Ghyonas

    i did the installation for 16GB Blackberry Tablet, but nothing is inside the table….could anyone help

  • deadleg2

     Yes Nora, I had the same problem. The problem is the app just is flaky with BB’s OS. Until they fix that in a later release (we hope) we’ve got to use an alternate video chat server. The deal there is everybody needs to be using the same program, at least of those I’ve looked at. Can you hear us RIM? We need Skype for PB. Thank you. :)

    Can you convert the latest version of the Kindle Reader please?


    A PB HP eprint would be nice. Not the PB apps now that require printing through a pc (I would just print it from my pc) or a cloud. The android app prints directly from my android phone to my local HP wifi printer. No pc or anything else involved. I don’t want to buy an eprint center cloud compatible email printer either. GREAT site btw

  • jelp2

     Has anyone had any luck printing from the PB using Cortado Workplace? It crashes whenever I try. Even re-installed it a couple of times.

  • JKSwanton

    I just installed Kindle on my BBPB.  Your instructions are GREAT!  I am “technology challenged” so if I can do it anyone can.  Thanks!

  • Johntiisetso

    hi guys. I have a Playbook and I’m loving having it. I am in South Africa and quite honestly there are very very few people that use/have PlayBooks in in South Africa. The reason I am pointing this out is that there is not what one would call a “support base” with the local networks/service providers. However when i saw your clip on You Tube on How to use Android Apps on a PlayBook, I was over the moon with joy. I then followed the instructions and started loading some Apps. The downloading was a success, however none of them work. Please assist me on how to make them work. The apps are on the Playbook with icons and all but I am getting no response on them.  For internet I am using BIS (blackberry internet service) which is provided by my service provider on my phone, which i then use on the playbook via blackberry bridge App which then makes my PlayBook become an extention of my phone with its features. What can be wrong with what i am doing.
