The BlackBerry Apps for the Venice/Android just got updated last week. It’s nice to see that the BlackBerry team is working on getting things sorted (for the few of us who need the handset to be more than just another Android toy).
Also, some promising news from the team working on the Hub - The option to SEND emails by using a PKB Shortcut (Finally!). Once available, one won’t be required to go all the way to the top of the screen to send a composed email (I am unable to understand why this ‘feature’ wasn’t there from the start).
The change log mentioned that the feature was already available in the last update, but after some clarification, it was confirmed that they are working on it and it should be available soon.
Has there been an improvement in the overall experience – YES! Definitely a significant improvement. When compared to other android devices, this one is definitely much better (in my view). That said, it still continues to be a very distant (and relatively incompetent) cousin when compared to the BB10 OS on the BB Classic.
Another update to the BB Hub and…. Quick Send now works! Thank you!!
