Five Android flavored BlackBerry apps are updated in the Google Play Store

Five Android flavored BlackBerry apps are updated in the Google Play Store
Five Android flavored BlackBerry apps are being updated in the Google Play Store. These apps include BlackBerry Hub, which gives 'Berry users a centralized location to read their email, texts, tweets, and more; BlackBerry Contacts, which stores all of your contact information in a single location, and allows users to employ the information to make phone calls, texts, send email and more; BlackBerry Tasks, an app that  allows users to focus on important jobs that need to get done by setting reminders and creating due dates; and BlackBerry Notes, which allows users to set up shopping lists, things-to-do-lists and bucket lists.

The four above mentioned apps have been updated to fix and exterminate bugs, and to enhance the performance of each app. Another app receiving an update is BlackBerry Calendar. With the latter, you can view your schedule in agenda, day, week or month view. Respond to meeting invitations from BlackBerry Hub and join conference calls directly from event reminders. "Meeting Mode" silences your audible notifications during a meeting so that you don't create a disturbance while the get together is taking place. BlackBerry Calendar will even recommend whom to invite to a meeting based on the people you invited last time.

The BlackBerry Calendar app has the following changelist for the latest update:

  • Allow changing event calendars after creation
  • Fixed missing indication of who forwarded an event
  • Contact birthday/anniversary integration
  • Accept meeting invites without having to send a response
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

All of these BlackBerry apps can be used for free during a 30-day trial. After the 30 free days are up, you can elect to start a paid subscription to continue to use them except for BlackBerry Hub and BlackBerry Calendar. Those two apps can still be used for free following the free trial, as long as you don't mind viewing ads. You can choose to pay for a subscription to those two apps if you want to remove the paid messages.


Download and install the five aforementioned BlackBerry Android apps by clicking on the appropriate sourcelink.

Great to see BlackBerry constantly updating their apps for better performance.

None of these apps work half as well as the native BB OS10 versions. I'm not an Android hater, I have a G5, it's just that since Matias Duarte moved away from software design the platform has suffered. He brought some webOS goodness starting with ICS and JellyBean but it's been downhill since Lollipop. It makes me happy to see BlackBerry constantly updating their services. There were many users here, you know who you are, that predicted BB would fade into obscurity and abandon the platform. Want some fries to go with that crow?

Totally agree with you here. The native BB10 versions are much better. Nothing compares to the Hub on BB10. Agree with you here, as well. BlackBerry has proven the "doom and gloom" theorists wrong, but you're too kind, because I wouldn't offer them anything at all to got with that crow.

Another level headed, neutral response from Crispin. I actually don't have a problem with blackberry. I hope they do stick around. They just need to change a few things such as the way they price their handsets.

You don't give level headed, neutral response about anything, especially on Apple article. Even on BlackBerry article, your comment not neutral or level headed. You don't fool anyone. You just try to provoke Meanestgenius into argument because you always say he not neutral or level headed. How you be neutral on something you like? You don't make sense. Even Crispin comment is pro-BlackBerry and not neutral. You just mad that Meanestgenius always call out your trolling in past and now when you troll. And you troll a lot. You always make unnecessary comment to illicit response and then play victim role. So many comment you make in past, you say "BlackBerry is dead, BlackBerry sucks", etc. Now you post lie saying you want BlackBerry to stick around. BlackBerry already change pricing with last two phones, so what problem is there? And Crispin referring to you when he say many users here predict BlackBerry would fade into obscurity. You do that many times. Don't lie.

The immature 12 year old is really leaping off of you today, lmao! I find it hilarious just how much you're seeking my attention, like a spoiled kid wanting attention from his parents. Now, take your own advice, stop seeking my attention, and see comment #12.

43. Mxyzptlk unregistered

The difference is that you are the unwanted child and I'm the parent. But you are so the mature one being the one who continues to fight the good fight, alpha. Now stfu and let it go.

Lol, you're STILL seeking my attention? Simply pathetic. And only you believe the BS you spew, JakeLee/alphagenius. Now stop seeking my attention, quit trolling for "monkey see, monkey do" reasons, and see comment #12.

49. Mxyzptlk unregistered

A. I'm not seeking your attention, so don't try to get ahead of yourself with your troll tokens payday. B. I could ask you the same thing, MxyzptIk. You're not clever with the faux accounts. C. Now stop dragging this out and just stfu.
