I rued the thought of a unified messaging app, but given it has been impossible to avoid communicating with friends' and family members' diverse messaging preference, this app has actually come in handy. Granted, I've never used one so I don't know what I'm missing. Nevertheless it does the job and generally stays out of the way. I still prefer the Gmail app and have not included it in hub, because hub doesn't understand bundles.
To guy who said that BB10 hub was the bomb... he's absolutely correct. Rome wasn't built in a day I s'pose... This android hub coupled with the BlackBerry keyboard makes the transition somewhat easier. One minor suggestion I have is for the pinch and zoom functionality for the unread messages. The behaviour isn't as silky smooth as bb10, would we be able to fix this? Other than that keep up the good work BlackBerry.
Blackberry Hub 10OS was the bomb!!! This Android version needs to be better: 1. I could add a Contact from an email address, call or SMS. I can't do that anymore. 2. It fully integrated with Contacts so it would add new info to an existing contact and suggest which one. I can't do that anymore. 3. I'd like to set a default sound for all text msgs, unless I change it for a particular contact. Logic says there must be a way for me to do this but I'll be damned if I can find it lol.
Priv STV100-4 Hub is slow to open sometimes. It keeps re-adding old twitter notifications that I've already read and deleted numerous times. I'd like it to be more integrated into the BlackBerry Launcher. Can you add integration for Google Hangouts and Tumblr messages? Can you add custom push notifications like the message previews from BB10.3?
Edit: group chat doesn't show the people in the chat or the last message. Plus the big ads. Deleted again. It's king of unified inbox / notifications. This Android version isn't as good as on Blackberry 10 but it's still good. Only reason why it doesn't get a perfect 5 is becasue WhatsApp doesn't show the last message sent if I'm the only who sent it. So for now I can't use Hub. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon
The Hub is the best way to manage all your accounts. Email, text, Twitter. Used to use it for BBM, however, now with the release of Allo, I have switch my main messaging app to that. It would be GREAT if the Hub also had support for Allo. I hope to see that become available in a future update.
