Hub Plug

With the final demise of BlackBerry OS, I had to give up my Blackberry in favor of an Android phone, and I found myself missing one of the core features of BlackBerry OS: the Hub, which aggregates all of your email, text, phone, and social media messages in one feed. Oh and it uses push notifications for email so you get your emails immediately instead of waiting for a periodic server query.

Fortunately BB now makes Hub as a 3rd party app, and I'm now happily running it on my Samsung. The paid (ad-free, with full features) version is just 1$ a month tacked on to my mobile bill and it's going to be well worth it.

BTW BlackBerry is still making BlackBerry phones, but the new ones will be running on Android. I'm really looking forward to the new KeyOne aka Mercury, and hoping to buy one as soon as I'm able to do the discretionary spending thing again.
