Canadian based phone maker Blackberry has announced their Hub+ service will be coming to all Android phones running Marshmallow.
Blackberry Hub+ isn’t an app per se, but a suite of individual apps that have previously been bundled on the Blackberry Priv, and the soon to be released DTEK50. The suite includes :
Hub: A unified inbox that allows you to compose email messages and social posts, respond directly to messages and calendar invitations, snooze items so that you can view them at a later date, time or location, and more.
- Calendar: View and respond to meeting invitations directly from the BlackBerry Hub.
- 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.
- 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 and more.
- Launcher: Turn multi-step actions like sending an email or calling a friend into a one-click task.
The apps are free to trial for 30 days, but you can continue to use them if you’re willing to put up with some ads. If you’re not ok with ads you can pay 99c per month to use the complete suite ad-free.
The Blackberry Hub+ Services app is now in Google Play, it’s more a management tool than anything else acting as a link to the apps in the Hub+ suite published by Blackberry in Google Play such as Email, Calendar, Password Keeper etc. It essentially acts as an unlocker if you use the 99c per month In-App Purchase.
If you’d like to try out the Blackberry Hub+ services you can download the app now from Google Play and see what you think.
