Once connected, Click the add button, and browse for the bar file(s) you downloaded.
Once you have selected it, click the checkbox next to the bar file in the list.

So I am about 4 days into owning a Limited Edition BlackBerry Z10. I was pretty use to the BB10 OS since I was using a BlackBerry Dev Alpha for testing my apps that I have been working on. But now that I actual have a full release BB10 device, I am amazed at how awesome it actually is.
This device is a messaging powerhouse. Neither Android or iPhone could even come close to competing in the mobile messaging category. As far as games go, yet again, this device is powerful, fast and the display has no competition. The feel of the device in your hand is top notch, build quality is rock solid, and very easy to function with one hand.
If you do a lot of multi-tasking, you will have no fear of the device slowing down, or crashing. I have been using netflix, browser, games, and writing emails all at the same time with not even the slightest hint of slowing down.
If you even considered checking out the BlackBerry Z10 just because you are curious, please do, you won’t be disappointed.

Will Google create a Google+ App for BlackBerry 10? This is one question that I am sure is on your mind also.
