Fruit Ninja on BlackBerry

Fruit Ninja is a classic mobile physics game, but until recently, hasn't been available on BlackBerry. Luckily with OS 10.2.1, we can now load up the Android version from Amazon, and it's easy-peasy.  

Step 1: Install and log into the Amazon Appstore

Go to the Amazon Appstore download page in your BlackBerry browser (http://www.amazon.com/getappstore). Tap the "Download the Amazon Appstore" button. The Downloads window should pop up asking you where you want to save it and what the filename should be; just tap Save in the top-right, then tap the file when it's done downloading. If the download window isn't there, tap the overflow menu button in the bottom-right (three little dots), and tap Downloads.

After installation, open the Amazon Appstore, enter your Amazon e-mail and password, and tap the "Sign in with my Amazon account" button. If you don't have an Amazon account, tap the "Create account" button and follow the steps.

Step 2: Download and install Fruit Ninja

Tap the magnifying glass in the top-right of the Amazon Appstore, and type Fruit Ninja into the search box. It should pop up in the results below; just tap the $1.99 (or Free) button to initiate the purchase. You can also buy Fruit Ninja from the comfort of your desktop web browser. You'll have to tap another Install button after that, and confirm app permissions to complete installation.

Step 3: Open Fruit Ninja

Tap the Fruit Ninja icon in your home screens to open it. Slice your favorite game mode and start racking up the points!

I've had good performance with no glitches to speak of, though your mileage may vary. The only issue I've really experienced is a slight audio lag, and a bit of a stutter when booting up and navigating the front menu. I had to make sure to hide the bottom bar and restart the game to get everything properly formatted on screen. Any black belts out there happy to see Fruit Ninja on BlackBerry?

Now what's the these "how to install....." ? are ya'll gonna tell how to install every android app? After the 1st how-to, everybody knows how to install every android app. Quit with these redundant blog posts. I expected more frm CB.

+1. All he's doing is repeating the same blog over and over with different app names. When are you going to tell me how to get my dang T-MOBILE wi-fi working again?

Posted via CB10

Simon Sage

Yeah, sorry guys, I know these are redundant for loyal readers. These posts are being built for folks looking for specific, high-profile apps through Google. We want to have all of the necessary instructions tailored to the app they're looking for, even though the steps are functionally identical across the board. If it's any consolation, I'm running out of top-tier apps on Amazon to do this for, though I may have to cook up a few through the Snap method.

Add in video's no?
It would be cool to see these apps on the bb's working all fine and dandy.

Kevin Michaluk

DUDE. You don't understand how blogging works (at least not as well as I do). The series of posts today isn't about YOU. It's about helping everybody for weeks, months to come. We always go ALL in around new device launches, big OS updates, etc. We're not going to blog up every single app, but the big name ones that matter most to the most people, ABSOLUTELY. And in order for people to find the help they're looking for, you need to write about it specifically. A blanket post isn't always discoverable. People will hunt and not find answers (most people don't even know what an APK is.. you gotta use the title).

So. Saying you expected more is kinda not the comment you should be leaving... it should be "I'm so impressed by your commitment to helping all BlackBerry users, and not just catering to the experts." Get it? Got it? Good. :)

Love you All.

Don't you think that one general how-to was enough?

+10 -10=0,get it,got it,good,understood.It,s just that there seems to be a focus on android today, and it's all new for this site and maybe you can throw in some other stuff .The articles are moving pretty fast down the list and it's overwhelming.I love you guys too. Did I do that????

Do we need individual postings for every app?

Can we not get general instructions then followed by a link to the appropriate .APK file for each app or instructions on how to install SNAP so that people can find the apps directly?

k8bushlover

Agreed, you guys should hire S4BB to start writing these 'how to install' articles.

Lol spot on

It's probably so when a bb10 owner goes to Google and searches "instagram bb10 install" there will be a dedicated article that will show up on the top of the list. Either way, just ignore it if you don't want to read it. There's no point in trying to strike it down. I'm pretty sure it won't be for every single android app but just for the "major" apps.

Of course. Also for social sharing. We want people to spread the word! Getting the APP names out there into the webosphere is as, if not more important, than just apks.

Kevin, for the next update can you let them know to add and improve a few of things that they missed. They are,

1) increasing touchscreen sensitivity, prefer to physically feel that I clicked on some things, very often i can't get the controls to respond on the first press.

2) the option to switch the voice control off, find it a bit annoying when it pops up most of the times when I use a headphones to listen to songs, I don't use it anyways so best to have a switch button.

3) Upgrade the native browser would help a lot, because it's kind of slow on when you open the browser, but once the browsers initiated it's slow execution, it becomes fast after that, but if I stop using it for like 10mins, then used it and entered to different site, it has that slow initiation, then after fast again. Compared it with android, Android was faster. Problem is I don't want a android phone, I love the bb10 concept and UI.

I Hope you don't ignore me because I am no one here. Please listen, would appreciate very much if you can do anything to support find convince BlackBerry to make those improvements and addition to the next update. Please.

Many thanks

To annoy me. That's why. Haha haha. Actually very valid points. Especially the one made that when people do a search for it, they can find simple directions for the app they're looking at.

BerryRipe

Yesh but y'all posted 17 articles yesterday about 10.2.1 maybe those articles should have been spread out for the folks that haven't even received an update. Now it's very repetitive I'm just saying! Now don't confront me Kevin...unless you want to...I'd be honored. lol

We have all of yesterdays articles (the important ones) now featured.

But I'll whip up a nice roundup post of Everything you need to know about 10.2.1 that links back to all the other biggies. Stay tuned.

Prem WatsApp

Yes, see Kevin's post.

I thought so myself at first, but then I realized, noobs and common folk were not going to find a generic post "How to install an Android app". They don't care, don't know and don't wanna know. All they want is that app, and they want it NOW.

This gets a lot of Google love, and that's what we need for BB right now. It needs to be found under the specific app name, so Joe Doe can just type it into his browser bar and be happy.

iPhone for me? Scr... ahem Q that! (posted from the latter)

Guys, side loading the SNAP bar is the easiest way to get Android apps as its just a interface into Google Play. It's simply brilliant...thank god BlackBerry saw the light and allowed direct APK downloads. Now my smartphone is complete, I sound like Darth Vader here!

Big thanks to Crackberry for all their dedication to helping people get Android apps on their BB10. I can see a real comeback in the works here...it's already happening in the enterprise folks! BlackBerry is far from dead...

Btw, writing this whilst listening to my awesome playlist on the Spotify Android app, amazing how smooth the majority of apps are running...

I know this has nothing to do with this post, but has anyone else found the battery to drain faster with the 10.2.1 update as opposed to the older updates?

I'm not getting to download anything. When I click the free button it says purchase failed. Help?

Honestly no disrespect when I say this but is it necessary to keep posting how to load these apps when it's identical to the prior app?

Who cares. The process is the same for every app. Who cares about fruit ninja specifically

Now this is curious!

It did NOT work on the leak!

SkypilotOfHope

Can I ask Simon/Kevin if they're favouring/recommending the Amazon app store over Snap, 1Mobile, etc.? If so, why? Why/how is Amazon better?

Posted via CB10

Daytona123

I'm not Simon/Kevin, but I assume it's because it is a little simpler than snap? With amazon you can install it straight on the phone, as opposed to sideloading? As far as 1mobile, maybe they decided on amazon because it's a more commonly known/ trusted name? Those are my guesses. If they're aiming to cater to everyone, everyone generally knows amazon.

bambinoitaliano

I was testing and load from 1mobile and Amazon.com. After downloading. And while installing I got Parse Error. What gives?

fermanagh

My experience has been the following :

Snap has been the best as its quick, it's a native bb10 app that interfaces into Google Play so you know the apps have gone through the Google verification steps. It also has an update area too. As others have said, the only downside is having to side-load the app but it's a piece of cake: just switch on dev mode on your device and connect up via USB to use the DDPB tool rather than using the Chrome extension detailed by crackberry which I feel is overly complicated for new users.

Amazon is also fine but the app is a little laggy.

I don't recommend Mobile1 as they keep sending update notifications which really annoy me after a while.

Is it possible to get rid of the bar at the bottom for this game?

For some apps I'll download them from amazon ...but then it'll say that the app isn't responding....anyone know any fixes?
