Install Android applications on Blackberry 10

Now I have a new BB Z10 in my hands. It is white (i wanted black) because it is seen that the Vodafone they have exhausted the black, but the truth is that I do not, like me and even more white. Probably stay with this.

I've already talked last month BB10 when I taught the people in my company Blackberry. Now that I have on hand I realize it's a cane.

Those who have all the Blackberry life we realize the big leap to have this device. They wanted much I liken the iPhone and Samsung S3. But in this post I will not speak of the virtues of gossip, as I spoke of its benefits in the previous post. Today I will talk about the second thing I've done with him. The first was to update the OS because surprisingly there is already a new update, the 10.0.10.82. After downloading the OS and to register email accounts, Tweeter and so I proceeded to see how I could load Android apps on BB10, and I started by Apalabrados, in deference to Maximum Cavazzani , and because my wife wants to crush me with Apalabrados your Android ...

How we can install Android applications on our BB10?

The first thing to note is that not ALL Android applications can run on BB10. The Blackberry employee with whom I met last month I talked about that over 90% of Android apps running on the new Blackberry. I work with that I'll settle for 70%. The ones I downloaded to test SI have worked, so this looks good. Obviously with BB10 still have the Blackberry App Word, so what if we recommend an application, you first look at the BlackBerry .-

The first thing is to get off the internet or somehow get the .APK Android file containing the application you want to convert BB10. On the internet you have thousands of sites where you can download these files .APK.

Once you have found the file of the application you wish to install, you must convert the files to the .APK Android files with extension .BAR extension. The .BAR files or programs are installable using the Playbook, but are also compatible with BB10. I said that in summer the Playbook would be updated to BB10, but if you can not wait for this book also serves to install Android applications on our Playbook.

To convert .APK files you can use this web http://apk2bar.unker.net/ that transform BAR so we can put them in our BB10. You will see that in this web have many files and uploaded by other users, so maybe you have not upload because they are already there. Look if the version on the web is the most current or vice versa. So you only have to give the button with the .APK file and choose to upload the APK file that you have downloaded and transformed to BAR. After what you descargáis to your computer because the BAR file is that you must climb to the BB10.
