Feb 06, 2013 BlackBerry Bridge on BlackBerry 10 - Dumbed down and not as useful
180 Comments

UPDATE - Shortly after we published this article, BlackBerry published their own article addressing the matter. In short, there is more updates coming to BlackBerry Bridge for BlackBerry 10 soon. You can read the full details via their post on the BlackBerry Blog.

For BlackBerry owners who are also BlackBerry PlayBook owners, one great combining feature was the option to use BlackBerry Bridge. Since it was released, BlackBerry Bridge has grown to be a really useful application that allows BBM, email, SMS, browsing and even shared file browsing between BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry tablets. With the release of BlackBerry 10 and ultimately the BlackBerry Z10, I can't help but feel a little robbed by its current implementation as it's severely lacking and feels quite a bit dumbed down -- and just downright not as useful now.

*UPDATE* - As noted previously, RIM has a habit of switching dates at the last minute and this release seems to be once again placed on hold for the time being for whatever reason. Back to playing the waiting game. Sorry folks!

BlackBerry Bridge was updated to version 2.0 to coincide with the huge BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 update. In the video above, we will cover how to set up and use the new BlackBerry Bridge app.

The biggest feature of the updated BlackBerry Bridge app was the Remote Control feature allowing you to control your PlayBook with your BlackBerry phone. BlackBerry Bridge also now gives you the choice to select what items you want to be displayed on your PlayBook. This option is a welcome addition since BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 now has native email, contacts and calendars.  If you have those apps added through BlackBerry Bridge and navitely on your PlayBook, you may find that you get double notifications.

So, let's go through getting BlackBerry Bridge setup.

By now, I'm sure most CrackBerry readers have updated to PlayBook OS 2.0 and have already been through the ins and outs of it all but in case there is anyone out there who hasn't updated yet -- when you do, you will notice there will no longer be a "BlackBerry Bridge Browser" on your PlayBook. It's not something wrong with the OS, in fact -- it's done that way by design as noted below: Overview: Continue Reading →

BlackBerry Bridge has received another update, this time to version 1.0.7.4. In the usual RIM fashion there is no change log to go along, so if you do find anything new and exciting be sure to leave a comment and let us know. Hopefully this tweaks up some of the bugs users were having and possibly even works with the PlayBook 2.0 OS. Grab the update from BlackBerry App World at the link below.
