The tools, simply allow Android developers to easily repackage and submit their Android applications to BlackBerry App World in a just a few steps.

I think RIM has the right person and program for increasing developer relations and increasing AppWorld relevancy...more quality apps that people want.


I understand people wanting games, but how about porting Skype and Netflix directly from their Android apps to the Playbook?? THAT is what we really need!
Real apps that show the full potential of the Playbook!


So how do we get these apps when they are released? Do we still need an android player? WTF.. they didnt spend any time on this at devcon and it was one of the most important things...

Did anyone manage to install and run the leaked Android Player on the new PlayBook OS 2.0 ? I expected it to be there natively, but it wasn't, so I tried installing the leaked version, it went well, but the Android Player still crashes after launching. Any help on that please?


whether the Android Player Repackaging tool is only for the android application built with Adobe AIR
