    Not That Tech Saavy

    Hi, I've followed the steps to allow me to side load apps.
    But I'm stuck on two things.

    1. Android market does not allow you to download apps if you do not have a supported device. Thus, I am using the login info of someone who does have a device. But the only option of where to download apps to is their device. How do I download apps to my computer?

    2. How do I convert the .apk apps to the .bar files?

    Thanks.

    Converting is a whole other process. To get you started here are a few already converted:

    For those not so tech saavy

    OK, I figured out the answer to one of my questions for any others out there who are amateurs like myself.

    It's true, you can't download from android market unless you have a supported device, but it seems lots of helpful people out there on line have already down the downloading and converting for us.

    Find their downloaded and converted apps, and download and then side load them.

    Thanks ICE2921, I found that site and have already sideloaded words with friends successfully!

    Hooray!

    Hello DrLZ and welcome to

    As I have mentioned before on previous posts, you cannot download .APK Android Market files to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    I should mention, I have personally not needed to convert any files as they are already available for the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    I will post more information regarding the availability of .BAR files for the BlackBerry PlayBook very soon on

    Thank you.

    I have also some very good news for members of who are looking to side load BAR applications to the BlackBerry PlayBook.

    When this informative thread was posted and published, courtesy of our very own Blogger, ice292 , it only made sense to post a thread that will consist of the most popular and free BAR files.

    Keep an eye out, as we will have quite a large selection, and to also simplify your search, from looking everywhere to one place -

    www.BlackBerryOS.com

    Thank you.

    Thumbs up Thanks for the tutorial

    This tutorial that you have written is so much easier to follow and it helped, really helped me . The only thing that I would need assistance in is knowing where can I go to download android apps and games for my BB playbook?
