SideSwype offers you the ability to sideload BAR and Android APK files on BlackBerry 10 over the air


Old school BlackBerry fans will remember the days when you used to be able to download app install files over the air. Before BlackBerry World, it was the only way to install apps on the go unless you wanted to pull out a laptop and use BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

With the arrival of BlackBerry 10 though, that function was stripped from users and now, folks looking to install apps must either sideload or use BlackBerry World. That's not to say it can't be accomplished though and while we've seen one app already offer OTA installs of BAR files, another entrant has now arrived by way of an app called SideSwype.
