If your PC seems to be standing in the way of you sideloading apps to your BlackBerry PlayBook, Localbar 2 may be just what you're looking for. You may recall the original Localbar that popped up back in November. It worked like a champ, but RIM quickly found a fix and it was dead in the water. Localbar 2 brings back the same functionality -- letting you install BAR files directly to your PlayBook without the need of a Windows PC or Mac. Localbar 2 uses a proxy to get the job done, so it will take a bit of setup before you can get everything running smoothly. Just follow the instructions and you'll be able to get setup and be up and running in no time.
Sideloading from a computer isn't all that hard, but if you want to cut out the middle man, Localbar 2 may be the way to go. You can always get the job done from on your PC by following our simple guides for both Windows or Mac. After the initial setup, sideloading any BAR files to your PlayBook is a breeze. If you still want to go the Localbar 2 route, hit the link below for more information and to download.
