It's round 4 of Michael Clewley's BlackBerry OS 10.3 sneak peeks. There has been lots of goodies so far. One of my favorites is 'Endless Folders'. That is something I have been wanting since the beginning and I'm glad to see it coming. There are also some nice e-mail additions too. So, what does today bring?

For today's first teaser, we have 'Weekly Agenda'. A lot of people have been asking for the ability to view more than today's agenda, which is what we currently have. From the screenshot below, you can see that you can now see the whole week's agenda. Another option I am sure many will be happy to see.

Just to note. These screenshots are not leaks. They are teasers. Michael Clewley is Director, Handheld Software Product Management at BlackBerry. He is sharing these screenshots over on his official BBM Channel (C00014277). The 10.3 SDK is in beta, internally and we are getting these teasers from that version. So, bear in mind some of these things will still be tweaked before the official release. As for when it will become available? Your guess is as good as ours at this time.

Meh. I personally don't have much need for this, but it's definitely good to have. I remember when the Z10 came out that this was one thing a few people really hated that was missing. So kudos BlackBerry.

After seeing unlimited folders, and black boxes around icons gone (and thus, allowing a 5th row of icons), nothing is really that great so far. Maybe Clewey should have left that for last? Maybe that's just me. Or maybe unless I see something really outstanding (i.e. Fixing the contacts app, which I don't expect) I won't be as impressed because I just don't have the need for these fixes.

Of course that this is just me. If people want it, they should have it.

He's only teasing info that's going to be released with the developer build of 10.3. We aren't seeing anything special yet.

Absolutely!
I don't care what the icon is or what color it is.
Icons are just a button to get from one screen to another to be able to view something or enter information to get something done.

10.3 is starting to look like the business and time management tool I remember BlackBerry being.

green now? different colors for different apps?

bspence87

Read the Channel post. He says to pay no attention to the colour, as it is still in flux.

nuff_said

Does he mention any where to ignore the hideous new app icons? Please tell me he does.

Omfg calm your t!ts first it said it wasn't final but even if it was you will have to take it and move the **** on

Lol. I am calm. Looks like you're the on e who blew a gasket. Next time count to ten. I heard it helps calm people down. Lmao.

Let me get you all started. 1... 2...

I'm sure you can do the rest.

digtech

Yes calm down. Do you think apple fans get to dictate how icons look? They have to accept ios7 as it is.

Posted via CB10

nuff_said

You're right... apple fans don't get to dictate the look either. But ios7 looks is more aesthetically pleasing because the icons are all the same size, have some ( I said some) uniformity between apps with respect to design and color selection. Overall better than what MC showed us.

Now BlackBerry keeps telling us they're listening so I'm making my voice heard.

wasabiGT

Aesthetically pleasing? Are you kidding me.

iOS 7 icons look like someone's kid was given crayons and was told to go to town.

You have got to be kidding me about aesthetics cause damn if those are what is pleasing to the eye.

Relax! What are you the crackberry post police! I read the whole post and i have even kept up in MC´s channel. He states in one of the comments in his channel, that there will be no user picked custom accent colors. But...seeing all the different sneak peeks I noticed the accent changes depending on what part of blackberry you are in (Hub=Red, Calender=Green, Blue and so on) I think it was a very plausible question to ask..Asking in the sense as not to get an answer back but also posing an interesting idea. Some of you in here are just so touchy! Good day to you.

FranRamos

It does not say nothing about color! It says its not final....touchy touchy!

DJRikko

It's too bad. I would really like to have the option for which colour I want. Maybe if we make a big fuzz about it, it might come for 10.4 lol.

Posted via CB10

vagos2006

I really want to to be able to change the color. I'm getting sick of the blue right now. Hopefully we will have bit in 10.4. I'm hoping they will have it in 10.3. Dreaming!

I'd like to be able to put in different shifts and shift patterns as a Mental Health Nurse my shifts are all over the place, I'm not sure I'm able to do that with the current calendar and have downloaded a simple app called shift calendar which is great. Just wish I could do it with the BlackBerry one?

Posted via CB10

DJRikko

I think for this you might be better off setting up Google calendars for your shifts, and then just synching them to your calendar.

Posted via CB10

BerryWizard

I thought everyone else did that...even home, my outlook is synched with Gmail and everything I put there goes into my phone and vice versa

Posted via CB10

ingris

My current work around for a 4 on 4 off shift pattern was to individually create my first 4 day block one shift at a time, but set each shift as a repeat event every 8 days. Not the cleanest way to do it, but gets the job done.

Loving the new changes with 10.3. BlackBerry updates are always the best.

I like it. I like it a lot.

It's amazing how something so simple is so essential to making BB10 that much better.

neil9356

Bryan, I also am a shift worker that has a very odd shift 8 on 6 off. I find it easier to input my calendar to my outlook or Gmail account and sync it to my BlackBerry calendar. I can then make small changes here or there and always have it handy.

This means only one thing, and that is; BlackBerry is becoming a mature OS!! This is great news for new devices that will follow in the future. Mr. Chen definitely knows what he's doing and doing it at a fast pace!!!

I wouldn't give Chen so much credit. This has probably been in the works on a road map somewhere for some time.

Nice! Now if I could only sync my calendar to Outlook on my computer...

JamesDee55

I had problems also, as it always said sync failed.. What I did do , is temporarily change the sync settings to only allow one way access from the device to the computer, on both my calendar and con
tacts.. Did a sync, and that synced successfully , then I went back in again and changed my sync settings to 2 way sync, and all of a sudden everything was syncing properly.. BB Link is a funny bird.

Ios is not comparable with blackberry OS now

Holy shit. That's awesome. I have been waiting for this feature since Jan 31st, 2013

I hope it is a rolling seven day agenda not just that week

No matter what day of the week, month or year, I always like to know what appointments I have committed to in the next fews days

DJ, thanks for the note about teasers vs leaks. That’s good to know.

I've been a Covey system user since last century and am convinced that week-at-a-time planning is the only way to go. (First Things First principle). So, this change is right along that line of thinking. Nice.

Prem WatsApp

Yes, I need a good weekly view. That's why I haven't been utilizing the calendar as much as I should, or would like to.

The calendar getting better will help me a lot. My Ems shifts are 24-48 hours at a time and lately, rarely on the same days if the week. Then the part time job that works around those days is all over the place as well. Then there's the meetings and the kids events and pracices....yeah I need a good easy calendar.

Thank you for the 'leak' clarification.
These are definitely building up anticipation!

team_leader_alpha1

I'd like the "invite" option put in the bblink calendar since this is the only calendar that syncs with outlook. It is a very useful option for business people. I can't be the only person missing this feature.

quizm

I applaud Clewley 's channel. It's about time BlackBerry provided some useful information in where they are going. And good to do it on Channels. Give them credit and hold them to consultation. It's a good sign. Those companies who learn from their consumers see worth supporting.

nef1307

This is brilliant. I need this one. Even if just for birthdays etc.
What I also would love to see is the custom profile option that would allow always on for certain people when they call or text me. I loved that in the OS7.
I don't like using 3rd party apps. I like it built in to my blackBerry.

Prem WatsApp

Yes, apps are to extend, not replace...

Always a source of hilarity that whenever people nowadays are given official advance-news of BlackBerry 10 features, they all think it's a "leak"... and people like Clewley and DJ Reyes have to keep telling people "No, this is not a 'leak'..."

ROFL..

So what I need. Yeah!

Clean colors but I sincerely hope that the color scheme is customizable. If not, folks will be complaining that BlackBerry has no direction in the graphics arena. Too many inconsistencies access releases.

Here's hoping that MC has us covered.

Go BlackBerry!

This (and the email article that we van revive any archived email, no matter how long ago) is the best news in ages about BB10. So efficient, and after all, that's the reason we all have Blackberry's!

Nice, nice. BlackBerry was and will remain the best business tool.
Hope that the contacts app Issue will be solved in 10.3.
And also if they will fix the contacts prediction direct into dial pad....will be stellar!
