Amazon Android Apps Running on Blackberry

Android apps running on Blackberry have some limitations/differences relative to standard Google Play apps and Amazon Appstore apps.

Some differences/limitations that exist:

  • Google Maps is not supported, instead apps must be updated to support Amazon Maps.  Amazon Maps does not have all the capabilities as Google Maps.
  • Apps that use “intents” (i.e. sending requests to other Android app such as for social sharing) may not work
  • Apps may run slower on Blackberry then on Native Android devices such as Samsung, HTC, etc
  • Apps may not display properly on the Passport, Q5 and Q10 devices due to the screen form factors
