SHORT­CUTS

HWM (Malaysia) - - LEARN -

What's the use se­cu­rity with­out the con­ve­nience of get­ting in­for­ma­tion at a drop of a hat? That's where the An­droid cus­tomiza­tion helps. The PRIV took some of its BB10 OS in­ge­nu­ity for man­ag­ing a user's work sched­ule, and evolved it into some­thing a lit­tle more ac­ces­si­ble for users fa­mil­iar with An­droid. Cus­tom­iz­a­ble Black­Berry Pop-up Wid­gets dis­play in-app in­for­ma­tion from an app on your home screen, af­ter you swipe up (or down or across) the icon. This way, you still have the same pre­view­ing con­ve­nience with­out the like­li­hood of show­ing sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion to wan­der­ing eyes. Swip­ing up from the bot­tom edge of the screen will al­low you to quickly open Black­Berry Hub, De­vice Search, or Google Now. The cherry on top of the swip­ing cake would be the curved glass on the side of the PRIV, where you can cus­tom­ize the short­cuts to bring you in­for­ma­tion or no­ti­fi­ca­tions, even when the phone is at rest.

The curved glass is cus­tom­iz­a­ble, al­low­ing ac­cess to cho­sen apps when the phone is locked.
