    Great help Ice!
    Hey Poita, you don't need an android device to enjoy apps anymore, as the BlackBerry PlayBook will emulate Android applications in the PlayBook's platform.

    It's awesome, I have been waiting for this day to come for a very long time.

    If you are trying to download Android app via the market place it wont work. You will need specialized .apk files that have been converted to a .bar file.

    Hi!! I have a quick question: How do you get the side-loader (DDPB) to recognize files in a format other than *.bar?

    Some of the links to Android apps which have been verified to work on the PlayBook are staged in
    *.zip format, and the side-loader won't recognize them. When the *.zip files are unwound, there isn't
    a *.bar file included in the contents -- there's an actual directory structure. For example:

    [App: eBay for Android, Version 1.8]

    - The *.zip file for this app contains this:

    unzip -l Android-eBay-1.8.zip
    Archive: Android-eBay-1.8.zip
    Length Date Time Name
    -------- ---- ---- ----
    1310 12-20-11 20:02 META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
    599 12-20-11 20:02 META-INF/AUTHOR.SF
    672 12-20-11 20:02 META-INF/AUTHOR.EC
    599 12-20-11 20:02 META-INF/RDK.SF
    280 12-20-11 20:02 META-INF/RDK.EC
    3868779 12-20-11 19:53 android/eBay-18.apk
    3229 12-20-11 19:58 android/res/drawable-hdpi/icon.png
    -------- -------
    3875468 7 files


    This *.zip file was downloaded via the "Top 10 Android Apps To Sideload Onto Your Blackberry PlayBook" article.
    I tried posting a link to it, but wasn't able to since I haven't posted much here for a while. :^(

    DDPB won't do anything with the unwound directory content, either. Is there a tool out there that will create *.bar
    files from directory content? Or, is there another work-around available?

    Thanks so much for your help!
