Last week as I gathered some homescreen shots from the Crack Team, I was surprised to see that a few actually had the BlackBerry Hub icon in use — something I never do. The icon has been around for a while now as another (perhaps easier?) way to access the BlackBerry Hub without having to swipe into it. I've gotten so used to the gesture however that I don't see the need for the icon to take up space on my screen. Others find it comes in handy, and that's okay too.
I do like that the icon is kind of a throwback to BBOS and gives you one tap access to the Hub — complete with notification Spark. For some, it may serve as a quicker, more familiar route to the inbox than the swipe gesture of BB10.
We're curious to know just how many of you use the BlackBerry Hub icon in your daily use. Hit up the poll below to let us know, then sound off in the comments!
