Hands on with Blaq version 1.3 for BlackBerry 10
We recently posted that the awesome BlackBerry 10 Twitter app Blaq had received a big update, bringing features such as true BlackBerry Hub integration, a lite theme and more. Now it's time for a quick hands on demo if you are still in two minds whether to purchase the app or not.
There are a whole load of improvements over the previous release, but so you don't get too bored I've kept the video short and sweet, just covering the main features. As you will see, the biggest improvement for me is in the BlackBerry Hub. We now get notifications with the Blaq logo and tapping one in the Hub will open up the app immediately, allowing for a swift response. We all have different preferences and the new lite theme will appeal to some, although I'm favoring the black. The Active Frame has also had a makeover and in addition to you being able to view tweets you will also get different colored indicators for when you have new tweets, mentions and direct messages - a nice touch.
If you're looking for a smooth and powerful Twitter experience on your BlackBerry look no further. Blaq is available for all BlackBerry 10 smartphones and is priced at $2.99 - a bargain if you ask me. For a full list of what's new in Blaq 1.3 click here.
