(In response to the reply) Positioning from settings fails because the positioning can't be seen, and it forces us to go into settings to do that in the first place. The Tap/Hold/Drag feature was PERFECT. Bring it back or at least give the option to have it on or off. • Allow full customization of the apps to include, as well as the themes for variety and differing tastes of the user. This is an excellent opportunity for BlackBerry to utilize the Productivity Tab as a virtual replacement for 2nd convenience key that had been removed years ago.
liked the original design better. and the tab doesn't go away when I start an app in landscape. it's above the nav bar but since the nav bar minimizes it just floats there. also it's more difficult to swipe it out EDIT: read other reviews, I agree on the drag to reposition feature. as the one in the setting doesn't show the tab's position while adjusting. REPLY: not sure where to reply your questions. it's more of the anesthetics, the old design is more minimalist and professional
Hate the new look of the tab. If I wanted cartoon looking apps I would buy Samsung. BlackBerry has been, up till now, has been had a sophisticated look. This new one is juvenile at best and not appropriate for BlackBerry. Adding a calender overview for the month is helpful. An instruction to "go on an adventure" is not. Would give 0 stars but I can not.
By far my favorite BlackBerry App. Seems like messages that come out of snooze (hub) and past-due tasks should be in here too, those are often just as important as unread messages. New update is great but not as easy to open for some reason. If I haven't opened it in a while it will stutter or jump back and not respond to the pull for a few attempts. The only way I've found to get it to reliably work is to hit the circle button again if it doesn't work right the first time.
Love the new update but why in the contacts quick actions can I only email or text rather than phone specific contacts. Seems very random, surely we should have the ability to decide for each individual contact. Also the same as responding to hub emails why does the option only give you reply to all rather than reply. Would be good for have that choice to pick what is best for me. Please bring drag and drop option back to for the production tab.PS: Please don't listen to trolls who want the old design back, it looked far too basic and bare bones. New design is far better, would very annoyed if it was switched back.
I really like the functionality of this app and use it a lot. I would love to give it five stars if interface looked more professional. In particular, I'd really prefer black semi transparent background or some customization in settings to change it (in case other users prefer the current option). Also, font styles of main task and additional notes are too much apart (one is large and bold, the other is too small and hard to read). Again, if other users like it this way, it would be nice to have some customization in settings. Finally, please remove the childish pictures. Just plain text saying that I don't have new messages would be fine. As an option, keep all functional updates and roll back to previous minimalistic interface. I'm in love with blackberry phones and software for years and wish BlackBerry success on its new path.
