Spreading Some BlackBerry Love


BlackBerry Love2

The BlackBerry Playbook…This device still has a place in many people’s lives today. I actively use my Playbook for things such as video training content, web browsing, YouTube, music, eBooks and movies.

The other day while visiting a friend of mine he explained that his wife cracked the screen on her Playbook recently. My friends wife is a big fan of BlackBerry and the products they deliver so it was only fitting that I spread some “BlackBerry Love ” and give her a  brand new 32 G Playbook.

Check out the video below as I spread the BlackBerry Love.

This is the text message I received the next day…very nice!

Erie Canal App For BlackBerry 10 From The AT&T Rochester Civic App Challenge


Recently, ATT, in partnership with RIT, Digital Rochester, High Tech Rochester and Hack Upstate, held the Rochester Civic App Challenge. The two month virtual hackathon challenged developers to build and deliver mobile apps that serve community needs and demonstrate how mobile technologies can lead to the next generation of tech jobs and investment. It’s an interesting concept which is often done through Open Data initiatives. At least one app, the Erie Canal app, is available on BlackBerry 10.

Erie Canal App

The Erie Canal app by Ebscer, is available for free for Android and BlackBerry 10 users. The app uses the Ionic framework which renders the UI quite nicely.

If you’re from the Rochester area, check out the app. It’s designed for those looking to travel along the canal by showing the Boat Launches, Locks, Lift Bridges, and Guard Gates along the canal’s path.

Download the Erie Canal app for your BlackBerry 10 device at this link.

BlackBerry 10 Quick Tip: BlackBerry Hub Pinch Filter


IMG_20140422_133038IMG_20140422_133038The next time you view your messages in the BlackBerry Hub , slide your fingers together (or pinch) and your device will display a specific set of messages.

By default, you’ll be shown any messages identified as a priority, but did you know you can customize how they appear when you perform this gesture?

On my device, for example, performing this gesture shows me my unread messages so I can quickly review messages I haven’t had a chance to look at.

Follow these steps to customize what appears on your device the next time you use a pinch gesture while viewing the BlackBerry Hub.

  1. Go to the BlackBerry Hub
  2. Tap FMRadio-3dotFMRadio-3dot  BB10-QS-01BB10-QS-01  Display and Actions
  3. Tap Pinch Filter Criteria and select one of the following:
    • Priority Messages
    • Unread Messages
    • Flagged Messages
    • Draft Messages
    • Meeting Invites
    • Sent Messages

After completing these steps, slide your fingers together to view the specific type of message. After you finish, slide your fingers apart to return to your complete messages list.

PhoneGap Bootcamp Is 2 Days of Converting Mobile Apps To Web



PhoneGap Bootcamp is a project by Demian Borba (and I’m sure other collaborators) who is a Developer Envangelist at BlackBerry. PhoneGap Bootcamp is 2 days of intense training converting mobile apps using Cordova for iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10, focusing on single page apps and performance. It sounds like an awesome event and if you want it in your area, you can apply on their site.

Here’s the short about PhoneGap: the performance is adequate for most apps, but the integration needs to be tighter and the performance isn’t good enough for games. In the end, the web will win because it’s becoming increasingly difficult to build a business with manufacturers taking a 30% cut from your app revenues. That’s the TL;DR of it all.

Check out the snazzy website from your mobile device. It’s very pretty.
