BlackBerry Keyboard App gets updated with improvements

Posted by

BlackBerry may have been known for its hardware keyboards, but this is a new dispensation. It also has a kick-ass software keyboard for BlackBerry-branded handsets that run Android OS. The BlackBerry keyboard app is available in Google Play Store.

One of the features of the app is SlideBoard. SlideBoard allows you to access two complementary panels when you slide your finger left or right on the virtual keyboard. The panels display a number pad with some widely used symbols and four phrases that can be customized for quick replies.

  1. Job well done, Blackberry, but here in Nigeria, we are not related to this brand anymore, since they refused to bring the Android version of their devices to us.

  2. I keep wondering why BlackBerry-branded Android smartphones are not officially available here yet. It is as if once BlackBerry OS died, the company gave up on the African markets that used to be its stronghold.

  3. My best OS ever. . .

    BB pulled the trigger of the gun aimed at its temple.

    I still reminisce them times
