DejaOffice for BB10 not updated since two years, stuck at 431. Newer versions from amazon nor google play install or run. Dead horse?

We've been checking it with each BBOS that gets released. It's been running fine on them.

Thank you for your reply. I've been running 1.0.0.431 from BB store since October '14. BBOS 10.2.1 and 10.3.1, no problems. As there is no update in BB store for long, I tried to install 3.2.6 from Google Play. "App cannot be installed". Tried 3.1.3 and 3.1.2 from dejaoffice.com archive."App cannot be installed". Tried 3.1.2 from amazon store. App installs, but just black screen when launched. I wouldn't call this "running fine". ;-) Deleted and reinstalled 431. Runs.
BBOS 10.3.1.1565 on Q10.

Papermoon, if your phone is a blackberry, it cannot run Android apps as native. It runs Blackberry 10 OS Apps.

I know BlackBerry says otherwise, but that is just inaccurate marketing. DejaOffice is not simplistic, and can't be run on BlackBerry's Android simulator.

So download from the BlackBerry store. That is the right version.

DJOCTO, "the right version" is two years old now (Mar 26th 2013).

No update for Blackberry. Will there be any, and if, when?

I know that Android is more interesting in commercial point of view, but no update in two years leads to the point that there is no interest in Blackberry any more.

Hello DJOCTO,

I am not sure what you mean with the word 'simulator', maybe you mean how android was supported time ago (i.e previous to BB v10.2.1)

IMHO, the Android runtime cant be consider a simulator, because if unsupported functions or APIs were not used, it should be transparent for Android apks.

I found few Android apks failing apart from those requiring Google services

regards,

We've done updates since 2013. However, the BB World is showing that date. We have an update we can roll out now. So we'll be sure to get the "release date" updated also.
