BlackBerry 10: new apps and features
BlackBerry 10: new apps and
features
Introducing the reinvented BlackBerry – an intelligent and intuitive experience that constantly adapts to your needs.
Designed around three main views – your messages, your running apps, and all apps – BlackBerry 10 OS allows you to
effortlessly flow between tasks and applications with quick and simple gestures.
BlackBerry Hub
BlackBerry Hub gathers all of your messages and notifications into one convenient location. Receive and respond to email,
text messages, social networking messages, BBM chats, and instant messages. With a single swipe from any screen, you
can peek at your notifications, peek further into BlackBerry Hub to see your messages, or peek at your upcoming meetings
and events. You can easily filter the types of messages that appear.
BlackBerry Keyboard
The BlackBerry Keyboard learns how you write and it adapts to how you type. It suggests words to help you type faster,
more accurately, and with the least amount of effort. When a suggested word appears on the keyboard, simply flick it up
onto the screen to type efficiently with just one hand. You can even type in two or more languages at once!
BBM Video with Screen Share
Have face-to-face video conversations with your BBM contacts over HSPA+, 4G LTE and Wi-Fi networks. Start BBM Video
from the Phone or the Contacts app, or switch from a BBM chat to a BBM Video conversation, by simply tapping an icon.
You can even share your screen with your contact by tapping an icon, and show your photos or presentations while you
continue talking.
Camera and Time Shift mode
Your BlackBerry device has front and rear cameras for taking high resolution pictures and recording HD videos. You can
open the camera from the home screen, and take a picture or record a video quickly by tapping anywhere on the screen.
Time Shift mode captures several milliseconds before and after your picture, so you can pinpoint the best frames to create
the perfect shot.

BlackBerry 10: new apps and features
BlackBerry Story Maker
BlackBerry Story Maker allows you to combine your pictures, videos, and music into a stunning HD movie that you can view
later and quickly share with others. You can select a song for background music, add intro titles and end credits, and apply
themes.
BlackBerry Remember
A combination of memos and tasks, BlackBerry Remember helps you organize your interests, ideas, and projects. You can
group related photos, lists, messages, emails, and links. Generate tasks from email messages and turn your content into
actions from anywhere on your device.
Contacts
The Contacts app contains details about the contact, updates and company news from the contact’s social network, and
events that you and the contact have in common. You can quickly filter your contacts by using the account type (for
example, you can choose to view only BBM contacts). You can also create favorites and use photos from social networking
accounts to represent contacts.
Calendar
The Calendar app is integrated with the BlackBerry Hub, the Contacts app, and other apps and accounts. You can filter
your calendar events for each of your social networking accounts. At a glance, you can view the people you are meeting on
a particular day. The Calendar even suggests participants and locations, based on previous email and meetings.
BlackBerry Browser
The new BlackBerry Browser is powerful, responsive, and super-fast. When you're browsing and you find something you
want to share, you can post it to a social network with just a couple of gestures. You can also view webpages in Reader
mode to remove distracting clutter.
Share, stream, or display your media files
With a couple of quick taps from within your apps, you can easily share your music, pictures, videos, documents,
webpages, and contacts with others over email, BBM, a Bluetooth connection, NFC, social networking accounts, and
more. You can also stream your media to supported devices such as computers, TVs, or other home entertainment
equipment, or use an HDMI cable to display your media files on a TV or computer.

BlackBerry 10: new apps and features
Picture editing
You can edit pictures directly on your device. Crop and rotate the picture, reduce red-eye, or apply a variety of
enhancements and artistic styles.
Video editing
You can edit videos directly on your device. Change the length of the video, rotate the image, and make enhancements
such as brightness and color.
Search
You can search your entire device for files, settings, apps, help, and more. Either type your search term, or say it, from the
home screen or from within an app. You can narrow your search to include only specific apps, or extend your search to
include Internet sources.
Voice Control
The Voice Control app can make multitasking easier. You can speak your commands and perform a variety of actions
virtually hands-free. Use the Voice Control app to send messages, make calls, book meetings, search the Internet, post
tweets, and more. Open the Voice Control app by pressing and holding the mute button on the side of the device, or from
the keyboard by tapping and holding the microphone icon.
BlackBerry World
Discovering great apps is easier than ever with app recommendations based on similar purchases. You can choose an app,
then share it – to social sites with a couple of gestures from within the app, or to a friend’s NFC-enabled BlackBerry device
with a tap – it’s quick and simple. BlackBerry World features a unified storefront for apps, games, themes, music, and
videos, and parental controls that let you hide content that you don't want children to access.
NFC and Smart Tags
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless technology that's designed for transferring data quickly.
BlackBerry Tag uses NFC technology to exchange files (including pictures, music, contact info, and even webpages)
between your BlackBerry device and other NFC-enabled devices simply by tapping the back of your devices together. You
can also use NFC on your device to pay for items, and to create and store Smart Tags containing URLs, phone numbers,
and more that you can share with others.

About BlackBerry ID
A BlackBerry ID gives you convenient access to multiple BlackBerry products and services. After you create a BlackBerry
ID, you can use your email address and password to log in to any BlackBerry product that supports BlackBerry ID. With
BlackBerry ID, you can manage apps that you downloaded from the BlackBerry World storefront and keep apps you
downloaded when you switch devices.
If you previously created a BlackBerry ID, you must use it when you set up your new device (instead of creating a new
BlackBerry ID). You can log in to both a tablet and smartphone using the same BlackBerry ID.
Set up a new BlackBerry ID
Tip: It's important to choose a password that you can remember. For your BlackBerry ID username, be sure to use an email
address that you use frequently. Recovery details can be sent to the email address that you use as your BlackBerry ID
username if you forget your BlackBerry ID password. The email address that you use as a BlackBerry ID username doesn't
have to be associated with your BlackBerry device.

suggests words to help you type faster, more accurately, and with the least amount of effort. Respond to emails, stay
connected with BBM, or work on an important document on the go.
As you plan your trip to see your family, the keyboard analyzes your style and learns the names of your brother, mother, and

Tips: Choosing a connection
Your BlackBerry device is capable of a wide range of connections, to increase what you can do with your device and how it
interacts with other devices. Take a look at the list of connections to learn about the different types of connections, some
tips for when to use each connection, and maybe learn a few things you didn't know you could do.
Network connections
Mobile network
A mobile network connection allows your BlackBerry device to make calls and, if you have a data plan, use data
services such as Internet browsing. In some locations, such as in a hospital or on an airplane, you need to turn off
your mobile network connection, but usually you can just leave your mobile network connection on.
Wi-Fi
A Wi-Fi network connection is another way to get data services on your device, but unlike using the mobile network,
using Wi-Fi doesn't add charges to your data plan. Your device is designed to try to use saved Wi-Fi networks before
it tries to use the mobile network for basic data functions such as using the Internet or downloading apps. You can
leave Wi-Fi on so that as soon as you're in range of a saved Wi-Fi network, your device connects to it automatically,
but remember that if you leave Wi-Fi on all the time your battery can drain faster.
Connections between devices
USB
You can use a USB cable to create a two-way connection between your BlackBerry device and your computer.
When you connect your device to your computer using a USB cable, your device appears on your computer as a
removable storage device. Depending on the functionality of your computer, you can usually use a USB connection
to drag files between your computer and your device.
Bluetooth technology
Bluetooth wireless technology allows you to create a direct connection between your BlackBerry device and another
Bluetooth enabled device. Although you can transfer files over a Bluetooth connection, because of its ability to
stream content, Bluetooth connections are more commonly used for actions such as playing the music on your
BlackBerry device through a separate speaker or making calls on a headset that is using your BlackBerry device's
mobile network connection.
NFC
NFC is a short-range wireless technology that's used for the speedy transfer of small bits of data between your
BlackBerry device and another NFC-enabled device or an NFC tag. You don't need to enter pairing information to

make a connection so it's useful for transferring contact cards with people you meet, or grabbing information from a
poster that contains an NFC tag. Depending on your wireless service provider and the applications you have
installed on your BlackBerry device, NFC can be used to turn your device into a digital wallet to allow you to do
things such as make payments with your BlackBerry device.
Connect your device to an HDMI display
1. Using an HDMI cable, connect your BlackBerry device to an HDMI display.
2. Your device automatically detects the resolution of the HDMI display that your device is connected to. However, if you

Display. In the HDMI Display Mode drop-down list, tap the display mode that you want to use.
Turn on airplane mode
In some places, such as on an airplane or in a hospital, you need to turn off all the connections on your BlackBerry device.
Airplane mode lets you quickly turn off your connections and, when you're done using airplane mode, turning off airplane
mode restores the connections that were previously turned on.

Check that you're in a Wi-Fi coverage area. If you're connecting to a home network, see if other wireless devices are
able to connect. If other devices can't connect you might need to reset your router. If you're connecting to a work Wi-Fi
network or a hotspot, talk to your administrator or an employee at the hotspot.
Your connection might have timed out. Try connecting again.
If the Wi-Fi network that you want doesn't appear on the Wi-Fi settings screen, it might be hidden. If you know the
network name, try connecting to the Wi-Fi network manually.
Check that Mobile Hotspot mode is off. If Mobile Hotspot mode is on, your device can't connect to a Wi-Fi network.
If none of the suggestions above solve your connection issue, try these more advanced troubleshooting options:
•
•
•
Check that the time on your BlackBerry device is synchronized with the network time. If the times are different, it could
prevent your device from connecting (for example, if connecting to the network requires you to have a certificate on
your device, and the certificate has an expiration date).
If you switched Wi-Fi networks manually, try switching to another Wi-Fi network.
If your email account is a work account, your device might prevent connections to certain wireless access points. For
more information, contact your administrator.
Still not connected? OK, try the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Check that the settings for the Wi-Fi network are correct. To find out which settings to use, for a home network, refer to
the information that came with your router; for a work Wi-Fi network, talk to your administrator; for a public hotspot,
refer to any information provided for the hotspot or talk to an employee at the hotspot who might have details about
how to connect.
If you use the Press WPS Button on Router setting in Wi-Fi Protected Setup, check that the Wi-Fi router uses Wi-Fi
Protected Setup, and that it is set to send its profile. Verify that another device is not also attempting to connect at the
same time, and that not more than one Wi-Fi router within range is set to send its profile. For more information, see the
information that came with your router.
If you use PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP-FAST, or EAP-TTLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, check that you installed the root
certificate for the certificate authority server that created the certificate for the authentication server. The root
certificate must be installed on your device before you can connect to the network. For more information, talk to your
administrator.
If you use EAP-TLS to connect to a Wi-Fi network, check that you installed your authentication certificate on your
device. The authentication certificate must be installed on your device before you can connect to the network. For
more information, talk to your administrator.
If you need to contact a support representative, you can access diagnostic information by tapping Advanced on the WiFi settings screen. To copy the log information to send to your support representative, in the Diagnostic Information
drop-down list, tap Logs. Tap Copy Logs.

from any app with a swipe to effortlessly flow in and out of your messages and conversations.
As you are writing an email to your mother with the details of your flight, you notice the blinking red light on the upper-right

Hub. You see you have a BBM message from your brother, but that can wait until later. You slide your mother's email
message back to the left so that it takes up the whole screen and finish writing your email. You open your brother's BBM
message. He is wondering if you can make it to his birthday party.
About the BlackBerry Hub
The BlackBerry Hub gathers all of the messages and notifications that you receive from your different accounts into one
convenient location. In the BlackBerry Hub, you can receive and respond to email, text messages, or BBM chats all in the
same place, see and respond to notifications from your social networking accounts, glance at your upcoming events, and
more.

Social networking
If you add a Facebook account to your device, you can receive and respond to notifications, update your status, and
send Facebook messages all from the BlackBerry Hub. If you add a Twitter account, you can compose tweets, keep
on top of your mentions, and send direct messages. And if you add a LinkedIn account, you can accept invitations
to connect with business contacts, send messages to your connections, and update your LinkedIn status.
BBM and instant messaging
After you add instant messaging apps to your device, you can access your chats through the BlackBerry Hub.
Calls and voice mail
The BlackBerry Hub also shows you the calls that you made and received, including any missed calls and voice mail
messages.
Upcoming events

share what’s on your screen.
Your mother wants to see what you plan to wear to her important piano recital, so you start a BBM Video conversation to
show her your new shirt. She can't believe the price that you paid for it, so you use the new Screen Share feature to display
your BlackBerry Browser and the online store's website.
About BlackBerry Messenger
With BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), you can chat and share in real-time with your BlackBerry contacts. For example, you
can see when someone has read your message and when the person is typing a reply. You can also share pictures, voice
notes, your location, and files.
You can use BBM Groups to plan events, delegate tasks, and see when members add or change items. A social space is
created in BBM for each of your groups so that you can chat and share pictures, lists, and calendar appointments with up
to 30 people at the same time.
You can use BBM over a Wi-Fi connection, such as while you're travelling.

Collecting and organizing tasks, notes, and
more with the Remember app
BlackBerry Remember is a productivity app for collecting, managing, and categorizing the information that you want to
remember. With the Remember app, you can sort your information as entries in folders, categorize the entries with tags,
record voice notes that are related to the entries, and add due dates to entries so that you don't forget to complete a task.
For example, if you're planning a trip to Paris, you can create a folder called "My Trip to Paris" in the Remember app. As
you're browsing the Internet on your device, you can send trip-related websites to the folder. When you remember
something you need to do before the trip, you can add a to-do item to the folder, and add a due date to the item so that you
don't forget about it. Everything you need to remember about the trip is in one place.
The Remember app is designed to sync with the accounts that you add to your BlackBerry device. If you added a work
email account to your device, your tasks and notes from your work account are kept in sync with the Remember app in the
Tasks and Notes folders, and your flagged messages are synced in the Flagged folder. If you added an Evernote account to
your device, you can access your Evernote notebooks in the Remember app and sync your Remember folders to Evernote.
