Frequently Asked Questions

Why can't I login?
Check your google account username and password. If you still are unable to login, you might have 2-Step Verification on your Google account. If so, you'll need to create an application-specific password
Why do you require so many app permissions?
All app permissions are required for Snap to properly register your device with Google Play and to download apps. If you denied some permissions when installing Snap, open up the BlackBerry 10 App settings app and go to Security and Privacy > Application Permissions > Snap
Why doesn't anything happen when I click "Open Installer"?
Snap requires BlackBerry 10.2.1.1055 or above. These newer builds include a direct APK installer which is required for Snap to install Android apps.
