The BlackBerry Productivity Tab app gets more visual changes, tweaks

The BlackBerry Productivity Tab app gets more visual changes, tweaks
Since BlackBerry dropped development of its proprietary OS for smartphones and embraced Android, the Canadian company had to create differentiators that would make its products superior software-wise over other Android handsets available on the market.

The BlackBerry Productivity Tab application is one of the many Android apps that aren't compatible with other smartphones but those wearing the BlackBerry logo.

So, if you own a BlackBerry smartphone powered by Android OS, then you already have the BlackBerry Productivity Tab app, which has recently gone through a redesigning process.

However, it looks like that wasn't enough for BlackBerry, as the company has pushed another update to the Android app. Although this one is much smaller than the previous one, it continues to bring visual and user experience improvements, as well as bug fixes and minor enhancements.

The developers have done some tweaking to the app too like the Tasks tab that has now been repositioned at the bottom of the calendar view. You can already find the latest version of BlackBerry Productivity Tab in the Google Play.

As always, it's great to see BlackBerry adding more useful features to their apps. Love the Productivity Tab. Very useful app.

Says not compatible with my device. I assume it must be strictly for the few BlackBerry Android phones. No big deal. Hopefully blackberry addresses whatever issues are plaguing it due to the 3.5 rating on the Play Store.

Once again you prove to be a troll and head straight for the comments section. Had you read the article you would've known it's only for BlackBerry Android devices. I don't know what you mean by "new" DroidBerrys since the Priv had this feature since its launch and it's not exactly new.

He can't help it, Crispin. He's a troll. It's what he is, and he proves that's what he is time and time again, no matter how much he tries to deny it and hide behind the word opinion.

You just have to give your $.02. You can't cry troll when someone says something you disagree with. It doesn't work that way.

You just had to make an ignorant comment on a BlackBerry article. That's definitely something that I expect mxyzptlk to do. Oh wait, YOU ARE mxyzptlk. My bad. You can't hide behind the word opinion when what you're actually doing is trolling. You didn't even read the article, and that's evident in your comment. You just jumped right to the comments section and made and ignorant comment. That's what trolls do. It's obvious that you saw "BlackBerry" in the title and jumped right in to make your ignorant troll comment without bothering to read the article at all.

You are attacking someone for something they said that you disagreed with. That's something I expected alphageek to do. Oh wait, that's you. I'm not hiding behind anything. You can't cry every time someone posts something you don't like. You have a history of doing that. I commented just like you did.

Lol, pointing out your obvious ignorance isn't an attack. It's pointing out the truth. And according to Alphageek, he and I are two different people. Oh wait, that's because WE ARE two different people: https://imgur.com/gallery/NA275 I do so love proving you wrong with facts supported by links that I provide. Now stop trying to hide your trolling behind the word opinion. You have a history of doing that, mxyzptlk. Even those that you consider levelheaded like Crispin and Darkk have been pointing out how much of a troll you are. Correction: You commented like the troll that you are. Now stop deflecting from the fact that you didn't even read the article and only saw "BlackBerry" in the title and decided to make an ignorant comment.

The only thing that proves is that you are a sad man who likes to talk to himself on Twitter. You don't prove a thing other than how argumentative you are. Stop with your obsession and stop trying to pick fights with everyone. You are the only one who is making ignorant comments.

Lol, what is proves is that you're a pathetic idiot that's been proven wrong yet again. I prove time and again that you're a troll that likes to hide behind the word opinion. Stop it with your obsession with trolling and stop trying to start flame wars just because you don't like something. You're clearly referring to yourself, as you have already proven that you make ignorant comments by not reading the article before commenting.

Calm down, pops. Relax because I think you misunderstood my comment. I never at once said anything about new Droidberry. I said the "FEW" BlackBerry Android devices. Petty argument picking is something I would expect from alphageek.

But you can't deny you didn't read the article. It would have saved you the time to check the app and find out it's not compatible. Being as you're an avowed BlackBerry hater, you're obviously unaware you can put all BlackBerry apps on non-BB Android devices without root so long as you're on Lollipop or above. With root you can add the productivity app mentioned here. My Nexus 6 is enjoying the uber-wonderful BlackBerry Keyboard and the equally awesome BlackBerry Hub and Launcher. I was still a young man when the Prophet Bob Marley left us but I still heed his wisdom - free your mind and the rest shall follow.

I don't always read the article. Mostly I skim through it. I make mistakes. I'm not a BlackBerry hater. I just think alphageek goes overboard for no apparent reason.

You didn't read the article at all. Thanks for admitting it. You are a BlackBerry hater. That's why you always troll BlackBerry articles, and everyone knows this, mxyzptlk. And you've just proven that not only do you troll BlackBerry because of me, but you've been doing so because of Alphageek. You're pathetic.

I said I don't always read the article. I said I sometimes skim over the article. Stop assuming. Drop the act because we both know that you're alphageek, alphageek. And don't flatter yourself. You are once again assuming someone is a troll just because they disagree with you.

26. meanestgenius

Posts: 22075; Member since: May 28, 2014

What's to assume? You already admitted to not reading the article. This isn't the first time that you've made a comment without reading the article. YOU drop the act, mxyzptlk. I've already proven that you're mxyzptlk. I've already proven that I'm NOT Alphageek. EVERYONE knows that you're mxyzptlk. NO ONE believes your lies about me being Alphageek. You're a troll because you troll and do trollish things. There is no assumption. These are the facts, and you're not fooling anyone. That's why you keep getting called out for it by multiple people.

I am using BlackBerry priv. For those who are using productivity tab it's slowing the phone a lot and it's becoming worse with every update. So I moved to people edge. Really good app. Not going to use productivity tab until they fix all issues.

I've seen some reports of people saying that the Peoductivity Tab is slowing their phone down. I've personally not experienced that and it works great for me, and NO, I'm not trying to belittle anyone's issues.

"NO, I'm not trying to belittle anyone's issues." Where there's smoke, there's fire.

Of course it does, mxyzptlk.

I think I've read a few comments about the Productivity Tab not playing nice on the Priv along with a few other issues.

Lol, no you haven't. You didn't even read this article, much less something else about BlackBerry. Stop lying.

Lol, nerve touched, deep in your gut. I don't care who did or didn't ask. I responded. Deal with it.

Priv is a powerful phone, no doubt in it. Try people edge instead of productivity tab. You will understand how fast priv is. Then comment on this forum.

I've already tried it. Don't like it compared to the Productivity Tab. Try not to assume what people have used and haven't used. Ask first. Then comment on this forum.
