Good day everyone.
I'm a freelance developer and right now I'm developing a new hub based browser for BlackBerry 10 devices which has built in integration for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (More social sites to follow). All messages and notifications would be delivered to hub via this browser and one doesn't need any secondary app to do so after installing this browser.
Facebook messaging is working too, just needs few improvements in loading speed.
It has built in options to block ads, pop ups and tracking scripts and opens links directly in hub.
So hang in there all BlackBerry lovers we don't need any FB app.
Other hand that I'm also in the process of porting Open camera app to BlackBerry, right now it still has bugs but I'm trying to improve it. So far the progress is good and I've managed to implement forced 4K recording on my Passport through it.

Bob, 18 Apr 2016Heyy hiii Which phone should i buy bbpassport silver edition or bb passport simple 1, please ... moreBlackberry passport silver edition is a little bit more expensive, but i prefer it to original because it has filleted corner at the bottom edge. Original passport has sharp corner it can dig to your palm when you are using it and can be uncomfortable. SE also has perfected manufacturing processes so I guess it will have better built quality, especially the keyboard. Note that in the inside, both are the same. Original passport already feel premium thanks to its steel frame, it will chill your fingers when you first pick it up, but then it will heat up if you use it long enough of course. I think SE will be very nice. Note that the original passport accessories will not fit your SE so choose suitable accessories. Don't forget to learn to install android apps and good luck with your passport.

Will t... moreAndroid apps will send their notifications to the hub and will be showed as notification (in hub it's showed with bell symbol). Based on my experience with LINE its notification works just fine, I can also use its phone call service. I think blackberry keep upgrading bb10 capability in running Android apps because they run very well compared to the first Android capable 10.2 os (current version is 10.3.2).
One of the advantage of running native apps, like some third party apps, is that they will have their own symbol in the hub, so in the hub you will have lot of symbols (I have more than 10 because every email account got its own tab) that can help you distinguish which is which. I think it is nice so I prefer pay some for third party apps than install the android file. They are not free because they are not sponsored by respective companies. Some companies even don't allow third party apps to access their server, this happened with snapchat. So if you want to install some third party apps, don't forget to save some bucks.
However android apps don't work as smooth as in their native environment, you will experience annoying lags in low spec bb10 like z3, but in passport they are much smoother thanks to its power. I feel their smoothness when I use android phone, but to avoid abusive ads, to get smoothness and stability, to avoid unnecessary restart, easy text editing, so I chose passport. I haven't tried priv but with its very high resolution display, it will drain its battery very fast so no thank you.
