Handster Pushes 50+ Android Apps into BlackBerry App World

Handster Apps

We told you earlier this month that Handster was submitting their Android apps from their Marketplace to App World as repackaged apps for PlayBook OS 2.0. Tim let us know that they have now racked up 50+ apps in App World as of now and more seem to be flowing in. The apps do require the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 but they seem to run fine. These apps seem to be simpler apps for now but you can check them out below:

  1. Even though the catalog of apps available for Playbook isn’t all that impressive yet, it is already difficult to discover apps on the platform. An influx of Android apps like this will only exacerbate this problem. I can’t put my figure on it exactly but think it has something to do with there not being appropriate categorization and filtering in those categories. I think it would be better if I could sort all the apps in a category by rating, price, number of reviews, number of downloads, and release date. When I’m looking for apps I often want to know what is new and what others are downloading. Maybe its there and I just missed it?

    It would also be much better if all these “e-book” apps had their own main category like games do now.

  2. I’m with Rob there. This is good, but it will only making find the (very few) good apps harder than never…

  3. Nice to see Handster getting apps over!

    Definitely need some filters and better categorization in AppWorld to make browsing for apps easier. The way Apple does it is horrendous and hopefully AppWorld won’t go the route.

  4. APG, yum 🙂

  5. And I love how they use the bezel for the back button 🙂

  6. Those apps are in the same quality as some of the flash apps. i don’t think other developers will bother port their apps to the PB. Kill the android player already and just go with Native.

    • Agreed with Bob here. These apps are pretty bargain bin. Where are the Kindle, Netflix, Pulse caliber apps? If the android player is just going to be used for shitty apps…what’s the point!?
