    How To Get Android Apps on your PlayBook Using BBHTool


    After the initial rush to download and get the first leaked version of the Android app player for the BlackBerry PlayBook, a couple of awesome developers have made it easier to download Android apps onto our tablets via the BBH Tool. After you've downloaded this program onto your PC, what you have to do is:

    • Ensure your PlayBook is in Development Mode - To find it on the PlayBook go to Options then Security and Development Mode.
    • Click Add Files and search for the Android app .APK files you've downloaded.
    • Open the Android App Player on your PlayBook.
    • Click Install It!

    Seems simple enough right? Let us know if this layout works out for you!
    • Download BBHTool for BlackBerry PlayBook
    • What apps do you wanna see available for the PlayBook?

    I thought the .apk files had to be converted to .bar files for Android apps to work on Playbook. Is that not the case and .apk files can be sideloaded and will work?

    Sorry, I'm lost here. I downloaded the BBHTool to my PC but when I try to run BBHTool.exe on the PC I get No Blackberry OSs installed. What am I doing wrong?

    Also how do I "Open the Android App Player on your PlayBook."? I thought it opened when an Android app was started. I can't see an icon or anything.

    I must have missed something along the line here.

    Please help.
