App Permissions

Since Android applications have been readily available to download onto BlackBerry 10.2.1 devices one of the main complaints I see in the comments is that we have no control over app permissions. Many Android apps will automatically have access to areas of your device including your media content and that's just for starters. As BlackBerry users we like our security! Luckily with native...

BlackBerry 10.3 Roadmap announcement explained

BlackBerry 10.3 Roadmap announcement explained

Earlier today we reported the news of BlackBerry updating the 10.3 Roadmap.
