Love music videos? Get VEVO UK on your BlackBerry 10 device

By James Richardson on 11 Jul 2014 05:00 am EDT

Who doesn't like a spot of music right? In this day and age where more of us are viewing greater amounts of media on our smartphones you may want to download the VEVO app for your BlackBerry 10 handset. You won't however find this one in BlackBerry World, but fear not as you can easily grab the Android version from the Amazon Appstore.

We know that when BlackBerry 10.3 graces us with its presence we will have the choice to download the Amazon Store direct from BlackBerry World but until that wonderful day comes you'll need to follow the simple instructions at the base of this post. It's all done from the BlackBerry 10 browser and takes seconds.

Back in 2011 we were lucky enough to get the VEVO app available for the BlackBerry PlayBook and I spent many an hour viewing my favourite bands on there. Now with the improved Android runtime on BlackBerry 10 we can all now enjoy the same experience.

Vevo UK offers the largest collection of premium and official music videos anywhere. So start watching your favourite music videos and catch daily video premieres by downloading Vevo for Android today.

Discover exciting new music videos, original shows, and live music performances from your favourite artists.

Stream live music performances, and discover new songs from your favourite artists too.

Make playlists of your favourite pop, rock, rap, electronic and R&B music videos. See lots of videos you like? Well, then add it to a playlist. Vevo recommends music videos while you're watching, so the fun never has to end!

Enjoy pop, rap, rock, R&B, electronic, country, and much more – the HD music video choices are endless on Vevo

Due to this being the UK version I'm not sure which other regions support VEVO so please feel free to sound off in the comments if you too are able to download it?

Follow these simple instructions to get the Amazon Appstore on your BlackBerry

The Android runtime on 10.3 NEEDS to be SUPER fast for the Amazon deal to work.

If Android apps run at the same speed as they do now, then the Amazon app store isn't going to help the app situation at all.

And if BlackBerry wants all non-business/enterprise apps to be Android, then a faster runtime is a MUST.

I own a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet and can't remember how many times it has had apps crash and run slow and from what my friends and relatives have experienced using S5s and Sony Z1s to HTC M7s android is already prone to crashing and running slow so it won't be much of a difference either way lol

Z30 and loving it!

I'm in the same boat! I got all I need in the AppWorld - there all the apps I need!

True. Lots of buffering and sometimes wouldn't work at all. But when it did, the video and audio were amazing.

Deleted Amazon, just get everything I need from Snap. Amazon is just a waste of space.

My experiece of using the Amazon Appstore is that it never seem to have the most updated version of apps available like say Snap does! I stick with the latter...

I have this on my Z10, sick app, could be a bit smoother though as I just get frustrated and fire up the native super fast BlackBerry 10 browser instead and use YouTube.

What I've noticed a lot is that usually the android apps are "higher quality " more "beautiful " apps, but run a bit jarry and a bit sluggish.
Native apps are usually smooth as silk but seem not as polished and fancy looking.
I prefer native, but to me ,if android apps run smoothly and start up faster (that's my main annoyance with them, they boot up to slow) I have no problem with android apps

Try native Stereo tube in blackberry world works for vevo videos let's you make play lists cues videos with no commercials works great hdmi to big tv

Vtecberry Z10

Vevo videos are blocked on YouTube in Germany but usually work through fast / super tube. I do also have the Vevo Android app which works okay most of the time

+ always get the original music video
+ HQ videos
+ easy search ( No fake videos)

- crashes sometimes
- Ad play before some videos (15-20 sec)

I wanna give a sincere apology to BLACKBERRY. Still the greatest phones, with a few flaws but hey, this device is amazing. Thanks John Chen.

Just downloaded Vevo (released date of July 9) from Snap. No indication of its being a UK version, I'm in the US. When I opened it, I got a message saying that I needed the Google Play service to use. I dismissed the message by selecting the "get goggle play" option. Message disappeared, nothing appeared to happen, but I was able to start watching videos. App works well so far... video quality is great!

This is getting ridiculous. Now CrackBerry is advocating the use of Amazon Appstore which experience-wise (=handling) is far inferior to Snap - plus the latter accesses Google Play Store - just because BlackBerry signed a deal with Amazon?! Gosh, you really need to understand that with your biased & opinionated way of coverage you are not even doing BlackBerry a favor!

Snap is practically violating Google's T&C, whereas Amazon is not. Have you looked at it from that perspective?

Pasted via CB chen

Oh yes, & that's why they were advocating it from its very first incarnation? That's why they continue to report every single OS leak? That's why rooting the PB was mentioned here?

Sorry, but don't take their side when they clearly don't deserve it.

As other people have stated in their comments - Snap is much easier & more reliable on a daily basis than the crappy Android version of Amazon Appstore. I don't actually care about CrackBerry's credibility all that much. But I'm concerned about the average (new) user who comes to the site & - after trying crappy Amazon Appstore - thinks the "Android experience" on BB10 is probably not all that smooth. That's what I meant when I said they don't do BlackBerry a favor here.

One thing I've noticed about amazon is a lot of apps are paid apps when they are free in Aptoide etc. And a lot of the apps. Don't work on BlackBerry 10 which is a bit of a bummer if you just paid for it! Snap is definitely the best but without side loading Aptoide is ok it has a bb10 store and tells you which apps work and ones that need a bit more work. Also they are all free which i recommend until all android apps run on bb10. PS has anyone had a refund from amazon when they found that the app they bought doesn't work on BlackBerry?

Tapping and flicking on my Zed 10

I buy a lot of Music from Amazon Mp3 and in an instance where a album is corrupt or doesn't have all the tracks, they give money back right away! So ide say you wouldn't have any issue there
