So you've upgraded your BlackBerry PlayBook to OS 2.0. You might be, however, encountering some unwanted BlackBerry Bridge apps. We'll show you how to keep what you love and get rid of what you don't.
You are loving the new native Messages, Contacts and Calendar as well as the new BlackBerry Remote feature that lets you control your tablet from the couch. Now that you've been on the new tablet OS, you might be starting to find some of the included bridge features to be redundant. For example, why do I need to get two notifications on on the PlayBook via Bridge and the other via the native email app about the same email? Well, not to fear -- we've got a solution that may just help you out and manage those unwanted notifications.
In the latest version of the BlackBerry Bridge app that can be found in BlackBerry App World, RIM has included a few much welcomed additions. The second biggest improvement has been the ability to select exactly what applications are delivered to your PlayBook via Bridge. For me, I tend to only have BBM connected because I've found all the other apps like email and contacts to be redundant as they are stored natively on my PlayBook. So, if you're like me and hate having double notifications check out the video to get a walk through of how to select which apps you want from your BlackBerry on your PlayBook.
