Now that quite a few more people are on OS 10.2.1 I wanted to highlight one of its best improvements. BlackBerry now allows you to easily install Android apps through the browser or from other apps so you can easily add top apps to your device. This leads to many people asking for a good place to find Android apps. Here is where I look:
First Place: The best place to look is this fan curated app directory by Azrae49 on Aptoide. It is a great way to get apps that are confirmed to work on BlackBerry 10.2.1
Second Place: The second best and simplest way is to use APK-DL website to easily download the application APK files from Google Play. No extra app needed and all you have to do is add a small amount of text to a Google Play link. Details here.
Third Place: Sideload SNAP onto your BlackBerry 10 device. This native app gives you the full power of Google Play in your BlackBerry 10 device. SNAP is awesome and free if you are up for sideloading it. Details here.
Fourth Place: Check out 1Mobile. They offer many apps that work perfectly in their app store though sometimes you get an older version. The nice part is that they scan your device for Android apps and notify you of available updates. Details here.
Last but not least: When all those sources run dry I turn to the many other app stores starting with Amazon. They are very much hit and miss but still not a bad curated option. Details here.
