Blackberry

BlackBerry Limited unveils BlackBerry Hub+ for Android, a unique software licensing program for its Mobility Solutions business.

The Canadian communications giant reports to propel a suite of BlackBerry applications, BlackBerry Hub+ for effortless productivity and communication on Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphones.

Key Features of the BlackBerry Hub+ Include:

  • Hub: A unified inbox that allows you to:

o   Compose email messages and social posts

o   Respond directly to messages and calendar invitations

o   Snooze items so that you can view them at a later date, time or location

o   Quickly select recipients for email messages using suggested contacts

o   File email messages and manage all your folders

o   Search for messages or contacts saved directly on your device or on the email server

and more.

  • Calendar: View and respond to meeting invitations directly from the BlackBerry Hub. When you create or change events, you can avoid double bookings by viewing when you’re busy. Using the “Join Now” feature, you can instantly dial into your meetings directly from your event reminder. And with Google Now™ voice commands, booking meetings has never been easier.
  • Password Keeper: Stores all your passwords, log in information and important records safe in one highly secure spot that is encrypted with a password of your choice.
  • Contacts: Stores all your contact info in one location for convenient management. You can interact with your contacts using a variety of methods such as phone calls, text and email messages, or calendar events directly from the Contacts app.  You can also create and manage contact groups.
  • Tasks: Increase your efficiency at work by creating tasks, setting due dates and reminders to help you stay focused and meet your deadlines.
  • Device Search: Easily find a contact, a meeting, a file, an email, a song by searching in one universal search bar.
  • Notes: Keep track of to-do lists or your bucket list, notes for a presentation, action items from a meeting, gift ideas for your family or groceries you need to pick up after work.
  • Launcher: Turn multi-step actions like sending an email or calling a friend into a one-click task. BlackBerry Launcher lets you organize apps, widgets and shortcuts on customized home screen panels for instant access.
