Odd as it sounds, there really are more apps available for BlackBerry 10 than for either Android or iOS. How?
- BlackBerry 10 devices have access to all BB10 apps in BlackBerry World
- BlackBerry 10 devices also have access to all Android apps available. This is because BB10 devices run Android apps too.
Do the math. That total is more than the total number of Android apps and the total number of iOS apps. You really do not have to be afraid that if you buy a BlackBerry 10 smartphone, you will miss out on apps. The truth is that you will have access to the largest collection of mobile apps possible.
How To Get Android Apps on your BlackBerry 10
Download and install a third party Android app store on your BB10 smartphone and you are good to go. Some of the available 3rd party Android app stores include:
Install any of the above or several others and start installing tons of Android apps on your BlackBerry 10 mobile. I know several BB10 users who run tons of apps by installing from the above stores. And the apps run as smoothly as they do on Android devices, so no worries about performance.
PS: You can also send Android apps to your BB10 by Bluetooth, email or direct download. Then you launch the APK file to manually install.
When next someone tells you that BlackBerry 10 does not have apps, just smile and show them the deluge of apps you have running on your device. Or just point them to this page so you don’t have to explain anything!
PS: You might find a few Android apps that do not work quite well on your BB10 device, but for the most part, the app highway is yours.
