Android Central app on BlackBerry

Yes, folks, the unthinkable has happened. We have officially brought the official Android Central App to BlackBerry, available now in BlackBerry World.

Officially.

A few things to note here: This is the the same Android Central app we've come to know and love on Android, with a few fixes for the BlackBerry side of things. Namely, the YouTube API didn't work properly as it does on Android, so videos should open up in the mobile site now. Plus, a few other BB-only tweaks. You won't get these fixes if you've directly installed the Android apk. We cooked 'em up special for BlackBerry World.

Also, while we want to bring the Android Central app to as many people as possible, it's for OS 10.2 and up. That's a bummer for folks still on 10.1, we know. But look at this as the chance to bug your favorite operator once more for an update sooner rather than later.

Otherwise, you get the latest and greatest stories from Android Central, podcasts, reviews — everything we've offered already, but now on a new platform. Enjoy!

Too bad it's for the 10.2 OS so I ll just have to wait for the official 10.2 OS update.

But this is awesome news

IJKBB10

Lol my bad I got confused and thought I was at a lower OS version.

Downloaded it!!! Sweet! Just not sure why the app needs access to my shared files

AngryEdmontonian

What if you want to post a pic in the forums...that doesn't work?

bennelong

I immediately uninstalled it when I saw that the Shared Files and Internet Access toggle buttons were permanently on.
Why should I be stuck with unnecessary permissions?
The CB10 App allows you to at least turn off the Shared Files option when you don't need to upload something.
These settings are under Security and Privacy for a good reason.

If I remember correctly during the Android central podcast it was mentioned that only the 9 BlackBerry users might download your app so why bother submitting it to BlackBerry World.

Thanks for the app but I'm going to pass. That leaves 8 BlackBerry users.

Before the gate starts I have two phones. Z30 and a Note2 (hopefully getting a Note 3 soon).

I just don't appreciate the sense of humor :)

I'm going to pass as well, so I guess that leaves 7 but I have 2 BB10 devices so does that leave only 6 I'm not sure? Sorry ac...NOT

I used to be a regular follower of AC I never expected you guys will go low bashing on BB. How great it feels to bash another product just to please your fans? Why bother to submit for 9 users? You do know there are more than 3 million users right?

dannyd86

just steal 10.2 and sideload it. You know you want too,....

ikalinin

i was thinking the EXACT same thing! well said! after that podcast, i dont want it!

shahyaz

I'm usually pretty unbiased between the platforms, and have no problems with either iOS or Android... but I have to say, it soured my view of Android and Android users. I know it's a generalization, but really they should have shown a bit of tact to their MobileNations brethren.

RyanGermann

I have to say that the principal editors of a platform-specific branch of a multi-platform property like mobile nations need to be a bit classier than that behaviour suggests... leave the trash-talk to the civilians.

It's Mobile Nations, not Mo' Bile Nay Shuns.

I was interested and installed the app. But

1. It keeps crashing on me! It happened once while in the middle of a post (my first and only), and it happened again after switching to another app and returning to AC.

2. Some CRAZY BlackBerry hate in the AC forums!! People in the CB forums always told me that "no one on AC bashes other phone brands like they do on CB". That is NOT the case. There is at least as much (if not much more) bashing on AC than CB.

And I'm not talking about discussions on piracy of APKs.

I'm talking about your standard "bb's app store has like 15 apps." and "BlackBerry's are crap" etc... I'm very surprised to see that AC forums are just as bad as BGR forums :(

I really would have thought AC users would have been happy to see another vendor jump on the Android bandwagon! :/

Posted via CB10

mnc76

Even the AC editors like Jerry Hildebrand get in on the BlackBerry bashing. I've never seen a CB staffer takes shots at any other platform. CB staff are way more professional IMO.

Posted via CB10

Hildebrand is an asshole, I don't like him. Even Phil is negative against BB. I find Rene very professional, androidcentral editors are very fanboys.

Rene is awesome :) A very good vidcast host too.

I have the same impression. In the vidcasts Phill looks extremely bored whenever the name BlackBerry is mentioned. Ok, he knows, he is part of the winning team... so lets bash the loosers.
But Rene is a gentleman.

Can you guys explain (besides the YouTube functionality which I assume is a Google play services issue?) :

1. What were the tweaks/fixes needed for BB10.2 and WHY were they needed

2. Why 10.2 is required

This would be key info for developers who are considering porting to BB10 and putting their app on BlackBerry World.

Posted via CB10

Also: A developer should ALWAYS explain why they need the permissions they ask for.

I understand that shared file access is needed to allow people to upload images, but prepare for 1 star reviews from people calling "NSA!!" on you! Lol

Android Central and CB10, two nearly identical apps and a great illustration of the efficiency and speed of navigation Cascades brings to native apps.

It's uncomfortable to reach the top-left menu on my Z10, I'd hate to try that on a bigger screen like the Z30. Why do people choose Android phones again if they're so cumbersome to use?

These were my thoughts exactly. Bb10 navigation is leaps and bounds better than anything else out there.

Posted via CB10

AngryEdmontonian

Also weird that Phil would have to "tweak" a few things as he said. its that same as that was available from 1Mobile, and that one worked fine as a direct apk install. When I installed the BlackBerry one, it said "error on installation" but then I went to my homescreen and had 2 AC apps. I opened the second one and then I opened the "borrowed" version and it to me to the BB one I already had open. Then I went back to my apps and there was only 1 AC icon. went back to BBW and I had the option to install AC (not open as if it recognised it was already downloaded)

Now did it do that cause I had 2 apps with the same name, or did it do that cause they were the same program?

Also, didn't Markus build a Native Cascades app for a bloody Tesla in 9 hours and we get stuck with an android port? No thanks, I'll run the actual "wrongly distributed" apk.

It's their idiotic comments that keeps me away from a site like that. I've never heard anyone on the CrackBerry podcast just blatantly s*** on another os. I know it's a podcast but you just make you're site look s*** by making remarks like that.

Disclosure.
I'm a Z30 owner, a BB investor (size large), and happen to have had oblique historical connections to the founders of the company in the past.
That being said, and having had the opportunity to fiddle with many 'opposing' devices recently, I must say that the humans in Waterloo, On, Can, really have gotten it right. Maybe not on time, but right.
The new BB OS and updates are, and one may debate, as good as, and/or superior to the competitors, imho.
I suggest everyone keep their tools cool, and their sticks on the ice, and with patience, as humans realize the anti-hype, BB awareness will increase, and subsequently share value will increase..

It's not that hard if you're Canadian, eh?
I suggest this, for Christmas, that you replace everyone-in-your-household's "phone', with a BB10 (preferably with a Z30, 'cause it's awesome, eh?), and show them how to use it on Boxing Day.
Or just think about it.

Instead of having the MN dev work on this port few wanted to see, you should have asked him/her to work on fixes for the BB10 CB app instead which many of us would prefer.

See BBRY does listen to us.

Pardon my ignorance, what's an android central app? What does it do?

How is it related to BlackBerry user like me?

Are the back-ends of the different Mobile Nations sites the same? If so, I would think it'd be easy to whip up a CrackBerry app clone and point it at Android Central content, with only some styling (color/branding) changes.

If not, this should be a goal so that every Mobile Nation site has an app on every platform that is built native for that platform. Consistency

Phil,

Maybe you should do a writeup on AC about the experiences in porting and tweaking an Android app to bring over to BB10. Maybe devs over there that are on the fence about porting to BB10 would appreciate reading an article authored by one of their own, so to speak.

I'm trying to keep garbage off my phone so thanks but no.

Mainly that's a bummer for everyone in the US. Except if you have the Z30

You are now in my Bingo Book

Since I am 1 of the 9 a-holes who use blackberry.. i would rather pirate the apk file, or maybe I won't even waste my time.

I'd much rather see a native imore app.. hoping bla1ze, chris or the artist formerly known as bla1ze to post an article about the availability of a bb10 native imore app soon..

OMG!!

Who let Phil make a post on here? Was that you Adam? Craziness I say... CRAZINESS.  :)

At least it's another top Android app on BB10.

Exactly Kevin!!

Shut it down! Shut it down!

The aliens are here!!!

Well this is amusing; Android app for Android Central and BB10 App for CB10.

I wonder how will the iMore and WP Central apps look like =)).

Thanks for all the info, I've decided not to download now after hearing about their forums. I noon want cb10 updated though please. We use it enough to warrant a nice app

Not an app for me, but great for people who do want it. Nice to see things crossing over like BBM etc. Makes for a better experience over all.

I honestly don't get the idea of downloading this app, since I hate Android in general..

Insulting Blackberry users then submitting your app to our platform..... real classy....
