Custom views are essential to maximize your use of the BlackBerry Hub on Android. You can setup custom views to refine your viewing experience within the app and organize your inbox more effectively.

You can assign key channels like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to a Social view for example, or you could fold multiple work emails into a Work view. This helps keep things in the right place and easily accessible so your critical work email doesn't get lost during the influx of new Instagram likes coming from your BlackBerry KEYone's awesome selfie camera.

BlackBerry Hub already allows you to look at individual account notifications on a per account basis. Custom views save you time; instead of jumping between three different Twitter accounts you could set an umbrella Twitter custom view to get a look at all those notifications in one list.
