Good e-Reader is very pleased to roll out our new online APK to BAR convertor that is integrated with our own Good e-Reader BB10 and Playbook App Store. This new convertor will allow the general public to convert Android Files to Playbook and Blackberry 10 friendly ones. We make the process very easy and intuitive and are very happy to provide this free service.
BAR files are the primary format for Blackberry 10 phones, like the Q10 and Z10, or the Playbook tablet. All of these devices have an Android emulator that will allow many apps to fully work, which helps make up for the lack of quality apps in Blackberry World.
Normally, to convert APK files to BAR files, you would have to attain signing keys from Blackberry and use a few complicated programs to convert the files for you. This involves hours of troubleshooting and is a very laborious process that many people can’t wrap their heads around. Our convertor is simple; you browse your computer for an APK files and we do the rest!
In conjunction with our new APK to BAR Online Convertor, you can view the last 21 apps that have been uploaded to our site. These apps are not a part of our main app store, but you can download anyone else’s converted apps, if they tickle your fancy. We also have a voting system that will help the community gauge if an app is working or not.
