BlackBerry is about to drop their built-in support of Air on BB10 operating system V10.3.1 and I am told it is due to the cost around licensing issues. Developers are being told to package their Apps as APKs with captive runtime and I would have no issue with that if it actually worked properly!

APKs with captive runtime do not behave correctly, there are some weird bugs:

Keyboard support does not work properly - I have a game that when packaged as an APK none of the keyboard buttons do anything on any BlackBerry with a keyboard. I noticed if I paired a BT keyboard, the arrow buttons work but nothing else...

Whats the deal with keyboard buttons not working with Air captive runtime, yet it works with the Air runtime built into the OS??

I'm aware the drop in built-in OS runtime support is pretty much a done deal, but can you at least fix bugs like that keyboard bug in your AIR runtime and prioritize this? There are loads of apps that are about to die in about a month or so due to issues like this and developers are getting fed up.

Here is a thread on the BlackBerry forums where people are complaining: https://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Adobe-AIR-Development/It-s-OFFICIAL-Adobe-AIR-support-droppe...
