I was an early a RIM or Blackberry Devotee to my detriment as far as I am concerned but I still own my Playbook and managed to find an old laptop running Windows 7 in order to be able to connect my Playbook to a computer again and add training videos I could view on the go instead of lugging my laptop out, which runs Windows 8.1
I cannot access Gmail because Google Blocks it declaring it is a less secure device.

Less secure app

Metro Manila, Philippines*
I tried to go to app world to see if maybe I am running outdated apps and I could not connect to app store. The program loaded. It showed me what was available. Even showed me my reader needed to be updated but would not let me connect using a wireless connection over the Internet.
I can use a browser to browse the Internet. I can still download emails from my business email (regular email not gmail, yahoo, etc. but from personal domain).
1) How can I access App World without having a Blackberry Phone with Carrier Package. My Z10 was stolen a few months after it was released and I moved here to the Philippines.
2) How can I access and add android apps on my Playbook for I am running OS 2.1
3) Is the Playbook itself the less secure device or something else? I find it hard to believe a Blackberry device is less secure. That is its signature mark, security.
Thank you in advance. Please help me get some use out of this tablet so I do not feel the need to upgrade to an iPad to go with my iPhone 6.
PS: If anyone knows other things I can do to get life out of this tablet besides watching videos please share.
