What apps are missing in BlackBerry World?

Last week our friends over at Windows Phone Central asked their readers what apps are missing in the Windows Phone Store? As you may expect, the post got a big response. Like BlackBerry, while there has been solid growth in their app catalog, there's still a gap in apps compared to iOS and Android. 

With the upcoming rollout of BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 beginning on January 28th, BlackBerry 10 users will have the ability to install Android apps (.apk files) directly onto their device. This will go a long way in solving the app needs of BlackBerry 10 users. As explained in our BlackBerry 10.2.1 FAQ, this doesn't mean Google Play will run natively on BlackBerry 10, but even without that support there will be plenty of ways in which users will be able to get these Android apps onto their phone. 

As 10.2.1 officially rolls out, we'll be providing lots of guidance around here to help BlackBerry owners find their way to the Android apps they want.

In the meantime though, I want to know which apps you're currently missing the most in BlackBerry World? Or phrased another way, which Android apps are you looking forward to installing the most on your BB10 phone (that you ultimately would like to see come to BlackBerry World too)? 

Give me your full list of must-have apps that you can't currently (officially) get in the comments!

Instagram is missing.

Posted via CB10

propeller10

At least there are 3rd party clients for Instagram. We really need Netflix (port or native), hulu plus and pandora.

Genghis2k3

Apollo is an excellent pandora agent.

z30dude

We need Vine on Bb10.

tayl0rd

No it isn't. There are no bluetooth controls within Apollo; can't skip, pause, mute, etc. over bluetooth. When listening to it in the car, if you want to do anything with it, you have to fiddle around with your phone. And the interface is not "driver friendly" at all. If I'm just listening on my couch, it's fine because I can focus my attention on working with the app. Also, the app will randomly stop playing sometimes, usually just before or just after an ad.

GEO1ER

Yes, but there are no advertisement banners or annoying commercials every three songs and it's free.

That is a very good point and one I was making to a friend just the other day.

battleax78

"We"? I cancelled Hulu Plus recently and Netflix a long time ago. I've got an Android (nay Amazon) device that had accessed them both. Still axed' em.

So mehhhhhhhhh

Oh you cancelled those services? Okay so let's ignore the active subscribers because you cancelled yours.

What he meant was that not having it isn't the end of the world the way Netflix subscribers pretend.

Posted via CB10

gxgs

Not pretend. Having to stop using a service you like and enjoy because the company from whom you bought the phone is failing to attract some major developers and failing to establish business partnerships is not the way to go.

I also consider many things to not be the end of the world for me, but for others, they are part of their daily activities/routines etc etc. If you can cancel the service and don't look back, then obviously you didn't need it. But netflix has 40+ million subscribers and increasing. To increase, the number of sign ups have to be greater than the cancellations ;)

drycube

I hope you are not blaming BlackBerry and whining about not having access to Netflix on your phone. Mainly because the solution is easy, get a different Damn phone to watch your beloved Netflix, otherwise, have a coke and a smile and quit crying. I'm a Netflix subscriber, but it's no big deal not to have access via my Z10, hell, i just fire up the tv to watch a movie. I truly enjoy my ZED and the whole BlackBerry platform and have no plans of abandoning it because of Netflix.

I travel and run Netflix on my Z10 out thru the HDMI port into the hotel flat screen, saves the cost of hotel movies, and I can still watch it on a regular TV screen.

shakeSpeare01

Apollo does a great job, has a nicer UI and no ads! AND you can sign in using the same ID as Pandora since they are from the same company.

Posted via CB10

chucklebutte

APOLLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The one app to rule them all! A little quirky, occasionally but nothing a restart of the app wont fix! NO ADS! The devs who whooped this up are by far the best for not putting in any shitty ads! My GF on her crApple iDud her Pandora client plays a commercial every 3 songs. Every time one plays I tell her, "Too bad you don't have Apollo, maybe you should get a BlackBerry" :D

leehardballer12

Why does BlackBerry World "need" Pandora when there is Slacker and several other services that are same or similar? I don't get all this clamoring for Pandora. Does it offer something different from Slacker, which btw has apparently supported BlackBerry from the beginning.

Posted via CB10

playbookdrew

Pandora is the best audio streaming app in my opinion (works with US IP only). If you don't know then you probably haven't used it. It's great especially with Sonos integration. Pandora One is worth the $3 a month too :)

Posted via CB10

gxgs

Yeah, its called variety, and people who like pandora prefer to use pandora. The same way you like to use blackberry and not anything else. I wonder what would happen if, hypothetically, you were to move to a country where blackberry services are nonexistent? I bet you would cry a river because you can't use the one you want, that you have been using for years. Having to change what you already use and have set, playlists, preferences, blablabla, because the phone developer is failing to establish business partnerships with major developers to bring them in is not good. I guess that's why blackberry has been bleeding subscribers. This isn't the 50s, people nowadays do and get what they want, if there are walls blocking one path, they simply move on to another one that can provide them what they want.

BBgeeqed04

Ha! Nice! If a river is created from crying, is it salty? Who cares? :) Anyway, I agree with your point, but it's like the my question. Not many care because it's their lives and they want what they want despite the logic or lack thereof.

Plazmic Flame

I dream of a day where all major apps (Instagram, Netflix, etc) are native... and not ports. As a user of another platform that wants to come back to BlackBerry, I really hate the snub & shunning that BB10 has gotten. Remember when app developers wanted as much users as possible and made their software available on all platforms? Like cast the biggest net possible and you can catch the most fish. This is why I give much credit to WhatsApp, even though I don't use them, because they have their app on every freaking platform imaginable, which is smart.

birdman_38

And BBMx is not on every platform, which is not smart.

Thunderbuck

I have to say, Netflix on 10.2.1.1925 runs as well as you could hope any native version might.

Posted from CB10 running on my awesome Z30

birdman_38

So native app development is over?

seascape

Hardly. But Netflix specifically has shown zero interest in developing for BB10. We should keep pushing them. However, Thunderbuck is right that on 10.2.1.x, Netflix runs incredibly well, considering it requires the Android runtime. Anyone who wants Netflix and other apps not natively available on BB10 today just needs to sideload one app - Snap - and they have access to the Google Play store without needing to do further sideloading. This is why the 10.2.1.x upgrade is such a big deal. People can get Android apps not listed in World much more easily.

Tumblr and Instagram are now offering apps for Windows Phone, but not BlackBerry. They are discriminating against BlackBerry users. Any entity that adds a WP app alongside their iOS and Android offerings but doesn't also create a BlackBerry app should be the target of vocal criticism, because in developing a Windows Phone app, they can no longer claim they don't have the resources to serve BlackBerry users, or there just isn't the demand/interest. If that were true they would have ignored Windows Phone.

playbookdrew

I agree. I would also add Sonos, Pocket, YouTube, Google Maps, Google Earth, Yahoo Fantasy Hockey, Roku remote, Denon controller, Kijiji, Yelp, IMDb, Shazam, Pebble, Yahoo Sports, Yahoo News Digest, Kayak, RunKeeper just to name a few. I mean real native versions that took some effort not apps that kinda work or sort of do the same thing but cost money and are normally free on other platforms.

A Sonos app is already in BlackBerry World:

People in the US **** Listen up...

Download the leaked version of 10.2.1 I promise that you will never regret it. Plus, I've installed an Android app store on my BlackBerry and have stupid access to apps, left, right, center, up, down, in, out, within...

I've downloaded Instagram (works perfectly), Candy Crush (Lame, but works perfectly), Netflix, Paypal, a bunch of apps and they are flawless.

Just do it and smile.

Maybe if the android runtime was working well we would have no problems downloading from snap. Yet many many apps don't work on BlackBerry for example : Go pro, canon, Samsung, air Canada, Sphero remote, just to name a few. Also you can't install any app that you need to buy. Sooo the app gap is not over.

Not all apps will work. But a great many do. Only one I haven't been able to get to work so far is Firefox for Android.

Instagram can't come soon enough. And 10.2.1 will probably NEVER make it to the US, so this article doesn't do US users much good...

Some of us on T-Mobile require WiFi calling. I don't get signal in most of my condo.

And to stop the inevitable responses:

No I will not switch carriers.

Yes I know you can jerry rig some of the leaks to work for WiFi calling but it sounds like a lot of trouble.

If I didn't require WiFi calling I'd be on a leak already. Hell I'm tempted to do it even if it meant my phone is unusable at home. But the logical side of me wins that battle.

Posted via CB10

deadzone8

I'm in the same boat as you. Aside from Philadelphia, T-Mobile's covering in Pennsylvania is non-existent. My parent's have a house in the Poconos area, if I need to use my phone off wifi I'm driving almost 20 miles, so I'm stuck with the crappy 10.1 T-Mobile makes you use. I really hope US carriers don't leave us out to dry but honestly they would rather force us to buy an Ifail or droid for $600 and laugh away. Best part is time to time they text me a survey and I give their service basically a 1, and when they ask about the phone a 5. They eventually called me asking why my answers are weird, I told them my problem only to be told T-Mobile has no future expansion plans outside metro areas and pretty much tough luck.

seascape

Too bad T-Mobile doesn't offer femtocells. It sounds like they did at one time but no longer do:
http://www.avforums.com/threads/have-a-t-mobile-femtocell-but-want-to-mo...

Verizon offers a Network Extender... like putting a little cell-tower in your home.
http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/device/network-extender

AT&T offers something similar.
http://www.att.com/standalone/3gmicrocell/

Have you guys looked into Wilson Electronics' signal boosters? Properly configured, they can amplify a weak signal, ensuring your device has a bar or two even if the device thinks there's no signal at all!

1- #1 and the most important...google services like Google now, Google translate, Google Chrome, finally and the most important thing is Google YouTube native app for BlackBerry 10

2- Facebook....omg Facebook is stupid and laggggggyyyyyy it is an app from blackberry not from Facebook it self ...so we need official Facebook app from Facebook like on ios and Android.

3- Netflix

4- subway surfers

5-GTA SAN ANDRES ##########

6- Utorrent app#########.... I really miss my Android device (galaxy) due to this reason....i cannot believe until now 2014 and still blackberry10 is the only operating system wich not have Utorrent...even windows phone 8 have it....i can't download any movies because I haven't Utorrent and my brother have it on wp8 and he can download any thing he want...

I know the developer working on the new Uber html5 app, which looks/responds just like the native iOS app, can't wait until it replaces m.uber!

JimCanuck

The Android Uber app does not work in the Android player on 10.2.1. You can sign up and log in but then you try to use the app, it cannot bring up Google Maps. It's using some feature of Google Maps that the Android player does not support.

But here's an indication of how important Uber is. My son recently visited San Francisco; he needed a cab. Turns out that Uber is so heavily used, he had difficulty finding a regular cab. Uber has taken over a significant portion of the traditional taxi cab market there.

It's not the question of why don't we, it's the question of why should we have to?

Yup. Netflix is expected to add 4 million subs this quarter. Still no sign of it for BlackBerry 10.

We need banking apps, badly!!!

Yes - banking apps are required for Germany.

Big time is right! I have had a BlackBerry since the first pager model and I stand behind my Q10 but the necessary business applications are few and banking ones almost nil. BlackBerry need to address this issue

Really? I think sound hound is much better.

I had that on my OS6 9800. Good app. Brings up a good point. I still have apps on the 9800 I'd like to have on Z10. I wish there was a method to run legacy OS apps.

I really miss Blackberry Traffic and Kindle.
I miss a lot the charging contacts too. I know it is no an app, but I cry every time I remember how easy was to put my BlackBerry Style 9670 in the charging pod, specially at night.

God Bless You!

AMEN to BB Traffic! Route options, future travel times/future departure times, arrival time/delay updates to POCs vis email or BBM, SO MUCH MISSING IN BB MAPS!

Oh, and AMEN on the charging contacts!

niss63

Agree on traffic, but Kindle been available for a while.

mrskycar

The Kindle app is limited to Z series IIRC. I would like to have the Kindle app too, if available.

SlapChopVince

Yes, BlackBerry Traffic was good, would like to see that come back.

Beyond that, better Facebook app and Netflix would be welcome.

I also have to agree with the changing options like the Bold 9780 / 9900, really miss those.

It would be cool if BlackBerry OS10 would have a way to run legacy BlackBerry OS apps similar to how we are running Android apps. There's quite a few good older BlackBerry apps that have not been ported for BB10 yet.

In the US, Banking apps, Chase, BofA, Quicken Mobile. I know they havre mobile Web but only the Apps have check deposit.

My Bank, UW credit union, has a web app that runs from any phone and allows check deposits via the Web app. Go figure. All these companies making is specific apps are wasting their money.

+1 The Mobile website for my credit union is superior to most banking apps.

Voxer! Won't matter much if BBM gets a nice PTT system going on and I'm super excited for Glympse. There are Vine apps and Snapchat apps but ehhhh... Google maps, but I only use it for POI searches. BB Maps is way better for nav :D

Just call Google before hand to tell them what you are going to be doing...then can pass it along to their big eared friends.

I doubt they will ever have their apps in BB. They like keeping it on their platform.

xxthematchesxx

amazon, opera, and the other common store apps. the crackle app is very impressive on BB. even better than android and apple.

Some of the Canadian Network apps (CTV, Global, CBC) - these guys ought to be ashamed of themselves as NBC, ABC and CBS have apps.

IGrann's may be coming out this week in BBW. Waze is owned by Google. And CTV, CBC all have apps in BBW.

Have you tried "Make"?

CB10'n it via da Z

bhtm

I carry two phones. Work and personal. Samsung S4 for work, and my Z30 for personal. I use Make but it is just not the same as the Starbucks app where you can see your balance, able to recharge your card and such. I try really hard to keep my personal information and such off my work phone but given I use the starbucks app 3 times a day it leaked onto my work phone... fingers crossed on next android runtime.
