If you're tried the Android App Player these .BAR files are nothing new but, now -- how you go about installing them just got a lot easier. As we know it, .BAR files either have to be downloaded through BlackBerry App World or pushed to your PlayBook using your PC or Mac. This differs of course from say a BlackBerry smartphone were you can just download a .jad file as an OTA and install it directly. So what if you could do the same with .BAR files? There is a lot of links out there now to .BAR files that people have converted for use with the Android App Player so being able to install those OTA would be great right?
Well -- now you can in a roundabout way. CrackBerry forums member tinyhack has created LocalBar - an application that will allow you to install .BAR files directly onto your PlayBook from your PlayBook. Now if you download a .BAR file from a site, you no longer need to connect to a PC / Mac to install it. Instead, you can just use LocalBar to load it onto your PlayBook where ever you are. Even if you have a bunch of .BAR files on your PlayBook -- you can now browse and install those files all rather easily.
While you can get even geekier than we are describing here by converting files called .apk, we would recommend you stick to the .bar files to start with. That way you have to do nothing too technical apart from download it to your PC.
FruitBat 1.1.1453 fixes the package command to ensure the application descriptor file always comes first in the file list, no matter what it is named. This bug would stop some applications from compiling into BAR files.The icon has also been switched for a much simpler, blue version with icon sizes trimmed to only those that Windows will use, shaving around 400K from the download package size.
You can download it here. Execute and install it (you may need admin rights). The BB10 Sideloading Tool allows you to connect your PC with your device as well as sending and installing selected .BAR files.
i downloaded the python doc in pdf ( -3.3.2-docs-pdf-letter.zip) on PlayBook. It's a zip file. Touched the screen to unzip. They expands to tens of pdf files, clutter my files. So, i want to delete some of them. But, it says unable to delete. 2b1af7f3a8
