    Lightbulb Downloading and Converting .Apk to .Bar to use on BB Playbook

    Hey Guys,

    First time post here, I have not read each and every thread there is in this forum, so bear with me!

    I recently figured out how to run Android apps on the Playbook. I have read a lot of threads showing how to do this. There are also some threads that have a few Android apps converted into .bar. Now, my question is, HOW do I download Android Apps to my computer, and HOW do I convert them into the .bar files needed?

    Thanks everyone!

    Hello kp11,

    There are a few different ways to convert .apk files to .bar files. I would suggest that you start with our guide on how to sideload android apps. That can be found here: http://www.blackberryos.com/playbook...-os-2-0-a.html

    Then when your comfortable with the sideloading process take a look at our growing list of already converted app here:
    List Of Working PlayBook BAR Files

    If there is an app that is not listed that is free let me know and I will convert it for you.
