    I managed to get it working and install things to the Playbook from Windows, including the Good e-Reader App Store. But, when trying to install an app from your app store, I get an error: "There is no apk file." Plus, I also installed Evernote from Windows onto the Playbook, but when I run it, it does not work. So all in all, a waste of time.

    Hi there – Thank you for the Awesome Video tutorial! I learned a lot. I was getting ready to "berry" (bury-Lol) my PlayBook because of its outdated Browser and its inability to load pretty much anything anymore. I LOVE my PlayBook b/c I can Bridge (via BB Bridge App) it to my BB phone and have used it to win cases in court by handing the Judge my PlayBook so he could read text messages while I remote controlled it with my BB phone. However, I recently upgraded to a BB KeyOne Android and was VERY disappointed that I really wouldn't be able to use my PlayBook at all anymore since I can't Bridge my PlayBook to my KeyOne now. So I watched the whole tutorial and downloaded some of your .bar files, but I have one question: You mentioned in your video (at 2:57) that you "have a BlackBerry Client here" – on your site. What do you mean by that? Is it a converted Browser?? Because my biggest problem has been getting a better browser for my PlayBook. The one it came with is Horrible and loads NOTHING now. If you can recommend a good Browser for the PlayBook, that would be VERY helpful! Thank you for the help and the Tutorial – you did a great job explaining .bar and .apk files 🙂
