Installing Android apps on BlackBerry 10 just got easier - All aboard the APK Train

It seems there's a new place to download your Android apps if you are running BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 and that's apktrain.com. We've featured the likes of Snap and the Amazon Appstore a bunch of times but there's a big difference between those and APK Train. 

The beauty with APK Train is that the whole process is done from the web browser on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Unlike Snap or the other stores we have looked at, there's no need to sideload an app - something that will certainly please many BlackBerry 10 users that are not very technical, or newbies to the OS. 

As you can see from the above video - you just hit up apktrain.com from your BlackBerry 10 browser and press the green download tab for the apps and games you want. It simply doesn't get easier than that and getting an Android app installed onto your BlackBerry can take as little as 30 seconds or so. 

What more could you ask for? Another step in the right direction for BlackBerry 10. Enjoy.

Not true, sir. I run anti-malware tools on the device I install Android APKs on, for that reason. :)

There are some reasons that risk is mitigated somewhat on BB10 (app sandboxing, no root access, some access not available) but it hardly makes it bulletproof.

ThaMunsta

I agree, I'm much happier side loading an app that will pull apps directly from Play. HOWEVER, if I run into someone and go "OH DUDE! You have a BB10 phone too! Isn't it awesome we can load APKs now?!" and if he goes "What?! How?!" I can show them an easy starting point without having to drag them to my computer and "perform surgery" on their phone. If anyone has technology paranoid friends, you know what I mean. (Example: "Ahh wait stop! Won't my carrier get me in trouble if you do that?" .... "Is this illegal? Will I still be able to buy legal apps?" ... Don't laugh, I'm serious...)

Side loading Snap is super easy and will help you manage your android apps including checking for new versions and showing change logs, etc...

I have not used this one but I don't think a web page can check which apps you have installed and find if there are new versions available...

Not at all better than Snap but much easier for those less technically savvy or if you wanted to teach someone else with a BB10 device.

JAS0NB0URNE

I went to download Sportscenter and it said I already have a newer version. So Snap must do a better job updating apps.

Posted with my Q10 running 10.2.1.1925.

HotFix

Does it show you if you have updates to APKs you already have installed? If not then this is a quick way to install an app but not a method I would use for ongoing maintenance of my APK installs.

I would rather see an article on how to backup and restore APK installs since Link doesn't appear to.

Posted via CB10 on a Z10STL100-3/10.2.1.2141

00stryder

Backing up/Restoring Android .apk files via Link are likely not a possibility, based on how the OS handles the Android Runtime. Running an Android app vs. running a native .bar file on BB10 are very different processes, and I'm not even sure the OS is designed to recognize an .apk file in the backup file, automatically choose to install it during the restoration process, and then assign the necessary user settings/saved information.

Now, if you're talking about Link being engineered to recognize Android save files and store them in a backup that would recognize when the .apk is reinstalled by the user and automatically associate the save info to it, then that might be possible but I'm not sure. Basically, it's pretty complicated based on the fact that .apk files aren't read or handled by the system the same way native ones are (nor should they, since the user can obtain potentially compromised .apks.

HotFix

I don't care if it is Link or some third party app, but we need a way to back up our APK installed apps and their data. Otherwise we lose the data and the apps if we have to wipe out device or switch devices for that matter.

Posted via CB10 on a Z10STL100-3/10.2.1.2141

Dave Bourque

You are 100% correct. We need this HOTFIX! lol

NinjaB

you don't really lose the app cuz you still have the apk on your sd card via the setting in Snap to save apk after install..

you still have to reinstall the app, just as you would any BB app...

and as Omni said, I believe Sachesi does backup the Android data folder that's created in device memory...

00stryder

I suppose that is the expectation how that BlackBerry has essentially revealed to customers that their phones are more than capable of running the majority of Android apps out there, but remember that there's still no official announcement of the fact that Android apps can easily be sideloaded onto BB10 devices. Then again, with Android apps in BB World, I suppose they're technically on the hook for it anyway.

(I don't want to come off as being one that doesn't care about this functionality as I too am eagerly awaiting it. Just being realistic about the expectations from BlackBerry.)

Omnitech

Link or Sachesi will backup Android data, generally, but they do not backup the apps.

So the usual procedure is to re-install the apps, then restore the backup, and the Android apps should recognize the restored data.

If you are side loading Android apps onto your BlackBerry, you have basically forfeited the security aspect of your phone, so it really shouldn't be a big concern.

Posted via my love powered Q10

Lee Grigsby

FYI - with amazon app store or 1 mobile market, (android app stores) you don't have to sideload the. apk files either. Just find the app you want in the store and it downloads and installs right to your phone. I'm using OS 10.2.1.2141 (leaked OS) on my Z10 STL 100-3 and my android apps work great! Never got Snap to work for me, but no need to use my browser with these stores

I wouldn't install apk's just like that...some apps like tinder...hot or not....are battery killers they keep on running the background even when closed and kill the battery had to take it off and since then I fear android apps that are not through blackberry world...only a few like instagram...Netflix...and so on run fine without killing the battery I really think should be careful when installing apk's it's truly just ment for devs to test out their apps.....

Makes pretty good sense to me... how about you???

These are the "metrosexual must have apps" that consumers are looking for ... highlight how easy it is to get them now... not "Logo World" or whatever the hell it was.....

cwalt2166

In your dreams with the "app gap" problem solved...It will never be until Blackberry has developers on board with all popular apps coded NATIVELY. To the common consumer, this has very little impact

If you don't stick with Google Play or Amazon then you put yourself at risk for malware.

This is why I use only Amazon and Snap (which uses Google Play).

I don't see how secure this can be. Avoid at all costs, save yourselves the headache and get your apps directly from google by downloading APK's using something like http://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/ or another app. Although you never know if the sites actually modify anything or not, but there aren't a lot of options.
Even SNAP, how do we know it doesn't modify anything when downloading? We just trust the developer, that's all we can do.

bombastic

I'm using this method as well. Getting the link from the official Google Play store, input it into the evozi site and voila: apk (hmm that rhymes).

For region restricted apps on Google Play store I use Tunnel Bear: 'free' consumer VPN software.
Or just plain old Google: 'android app + insert-name-of-app-here' to get the link.

Posted via CB10

mnc76

How do you know evozi isn't modifying the APKs? You have to trust the evozi devs.

The APK links evozi generates are not direct link to Google Play. They are links to evozi servers.

If you don't trust the Snap developer (who has been active on Crackberry forums), why would you trust the evozi dev?

Posted via CB10

xDragonZ

I'm one of evozi dev, all our apk files is 100% from play store, we cached on our server due to high apk request and google will "ban" the account if we request more than 250+ apk in 6-8 hours.

You can verify it's real apk or has been modified by checking the file hash, you can try get someone who with android phone and pull out apk from his phone and compare with ours of cause make sure both of the app version is the same.

If you still have doubt you can use our chrome extension, and you will download directly from google domain.

Prem WatsApp

We need to be able to compare md5sum hashes from those sources with reliable ones like Snap / Google Play. Any ideas? Is there a place to check?

Just downloaded MD5 Hash Calculator from BBW.

heading4tomorrow

Let us know the outcome! I can do that on PC, it would be much easier actually. The problem is you can never download directly from google play to your PC, they all come from different sources, and for all you know SNAP can be using the same source. Unless you know how to download directly from Google Play and NOT from evozi.

Re Amazon App Store

There is no side-loading involved. Simply Google 'download amazon app store', and the apk file will download to the Downloads folder. Next, open the apk file using the BB10 File Manager and you can then install the app store. Repeat, no side-loading required.

What's nice about the Amazon store is they feature a free app each day. I've taken advantage of the free offer several times since Christmas. I've also braved the waters and purchased a few apps.

Posted via CB10

SC457

Perfect for people that don't know how to side load Snap but I prefer Snap since it updates the current apps I have downloaded.

mnc76

What about malware. Apktrain doesn't have the same versions of APKs that are on Google Play...

Where is Apktrain getting their APKs?... Are they being modified with viruses and malware?

I guess if you don't mind risking your phone getting loaded down with viruses then this is a food option.

Personally, I'm like my phone to be virus- and malware-free.

Posted via CB10

JasonGallagher

Thanks for the link - always good to have another source for apk's I suppose, but what I'm really looking forward to are apks running well. Seems like it's always a hit or miss. Case and point, just used apktrain to download 3D Bowling, easy download and install, permissions granted, opened app and it crashes. Tried opening again, crashes. No dice. Deleted app. That's happened more often than not for a number of apks I've tried.

Some apks work well, some so-so, some not at all. I get that apps requiring Google Services have a ways to go before they work on BlackBerry (if ever), but I hope the functionality of other apks really improve soon.

Telegram for example, works ok when open, albeit with some lag, but no hub integration so a no-go for an IM app.

Other apks like torrent apps can't search the BlackBerry file directory properly (can't save to SD card for example).

Hope the android runtime or whatever else on bb10 drastically improves to run apks better in the near future, whether via dual boot or within the OS like we have it now.

My perfect scenario would be having the best of bb10 and the best of android apps in one device. I know that's what they're shooting for, I just hope it's feasible and happens soon :)

Dunmanway Emar

Thoroughly agree. I've wasted no end of time downloading apps that don't load, don't run or just crash. What makes it worse it that I then delete them but a month or two later I've forgotten whenever I've tried and failed a particular app and I repeat the whole sorry process!

Time for some party pooping. I'm really failing and struggling to see any benefit of Andriod apps. I for one most eagerly waited in eager anticipation for 10.1.2 and the improved runtime but what an anticlimactic outcome.

Now, do we not bang the drum loud about how secure Blackberry is - yet given choice to relinquish your privacy and personal data for the sake of having an non-native Andriod app is a 'price' I'm not willing to pay. So what's all this security for if it isn't to protect and safeguard our data?

I'm truly flummoxed by the number of comments in this forum that expound all kinds of praise and 'fist-in-air' joy.

You realise most third party app stores can already be downloaded and installed through the BB10 browser, right? When you go to their websites, you can easily download the relevant store .apk. No side-loading involved at all.

Snap is the only one you have to actually side-load, because it is a native application.
