    Yes kryptoBB, that is a very good source of PlayBook BAR files which can be side loaded to your BlackBerry PlayBook.

    They have quite the extensive list.
    I have personally found a few very good ones I have installed on mine, and work very well.

    You may encounter 1 or 2 converted BAR files out there, and if you do please contact the site, or Mod to report broken links, or bad BAR file(s).

    Thank you.

    Hey guys, just came across this site, seems really nice and very helpful. Just wondering, I am having trouble adding a few BAR files, I have got googlemaps, angry birds, island Mini Golf, and Scamble free. Trying to put on a few more, it goes thru the loading and says done but when I check playbook, nothing there. OS 2.0.1.358 and I have done a reboot. I am trying to add 10 more

    Hello frisco49ers, and welcome to

    Assuming you're running DDPB, latest version is 1.0.9.1.

    When adding the .BAR file, try running after install, a pop up will ask you to confirm, once the .BAR file has completely installed.

    Some converted applications need this option, and helps with installing these files to your BlackBerry PlayBook.

    If I may also include while we are on the subject of side loading .BAR files, please remember rules, specifically no mention of side loading paid applications to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    Thank you.

    I had an older version, I now have 1.0.9.1. Now it won't connect to the playbook, I have rebooted both my computer and my playbook but still won't connect. I have developer mode on as well.

    Go to Control Panel>Programs>Programs and Features, remove the older version of DDPB first (reboot PC if prompted), then install the newer version 1.0.9.1, make sure the BlackBerry PlayBook is not connected to your Windows PC.

    Once DDPB v1.0.9.1 is completely installed, connect your PlayBook into an available USB port with Developer Mode enabled, now it will work with no further issues.

    Thank you.

    it now gives me the error "Please ensure that your device is securely connected to your computer, try again!" when I click scan. I have tried 2 different cables and the playbook changes to the screen that says connected to the computer. I am getting frustrated now... Have uninstalled and re installed everything.

    If you look at the development mode icon on. Your playbook what does it say?

    You still have to answered my question. Are you using 169.254.0.1 or 192.168.1.147 within DDPB? Also have you reviewed the previous link?
