BlackBerry apps on Android get a major refresh


The Priv, DTEK50 and DTEK60 will head into 2017 with a new look in some of their apps. BlackBerry has announced updates to its Hub+ apps, Android keyboard, Launcher and Password Keeper that include bugfixes and performance tweaks.

Beyond that, Hub+ apps now keep your cadre of accounts more organized by allowing users to hide some of them and prevent them from syncing data. A default email account can also be set for use from within the Hub. Emails can be prioritized by contacts and shown with the contacts’ avatars besides the message previews. Attachments in the .eml format are now viewable. The Tasks app can now hide completed tasks.

The Android Launcher gets “a sleeker, sexier look” with a dark theme while the keyboard has some new tricks in its same sleeve, including a more responsive switchover to different languages, Stoke and Zhuyin Chinese input and fingerprint support for Password Keeper access (as on the DTEK60). Speaking of the Keeper, there’s now a built-in webview browser, a revised and clarified password font and non-Latin character support.

If you already have these apps and haven’t taken the time to check out updates, you will probably want to do so ASAP.
