    Sometimes I love posting directly via my keyboard from the Homescreen. With 10.2. it simple:

    Type "facebook Feeling great" and enter! Boom, good to go.

    Now with 10.3. it is overbloated and complicated. You get tons of options with assistent and don't make fun. So it's easier to open up the Facebook app to post something!

    Why did Blackberry change that great and simple function?

    Any tip how to make task via homescreen like before?

    Any hints are aprreciated!

    Thank you!

    Just start typing. Once you finish Facebook with a space after, everything else will be the post.

    It is a simple and great feature.

    When you are on the homescreen and want to update your facebook status ist type:

    Facebook I am ready for tonight's workout

    And his enter. Boom. That's all.

    Twitter the same. Mail, BBM and SMS also. Always type your app name first then the message. No need to open an app or going to the hub.

    With 10.3. It is a Desaster. Something you wanna punch BlackBerry designer in the face for that.

    It's part of the Search function in 10.2. On your Home screen, tap the Search icon (the middle permanent icon across the bottom), then type fb for Facebook, tw for Twitter, etc, followed by a space, then type your message. Once you hit Enter or Post, it will be posted to your status. Really a sweet feature! I use it all the time. I haven't gotten 10.3 yet on my Z30, so I'll be interested in seeing how it has changed.

    Seems to work on 2072 with my Z30. I hit the search icon (cant just start typing on a non-keyboard phone) and can still use Facebook and Twitter instant actions.

    Are you on a leak?

    I have a passport and that is something BlackBerry really blewed off. It was a neat feature.

    Clicking for the search icon is no option for me since you can open up facebook app also.

    The function saved lot of times and step. Type directly via homescreen your status. In 10.3. you have tons of option and assistance etc. Doenst work out.

    BlackBerry bring us back this time saving feature!!!

    It's still possible with the same steps on 10.3.1

    On the homescreen, type "fb blah blah blah" and hit enter, a post a new fb status box appears with "blah blah blah" in it.

    Same for twitter

    10.3.1. ?

    I haven't this version on my passport. Is that a leak you have?

    Here I have 10.3.0. So it won't work.

    Hopefully on 10.3.1. we will have this feature back.

    Maybe instead of bashing BlackBerry, you could start with "could someone teach me how to do this". There are a lot of potential helpers out there that just tune out as soon as their rant sensor goes off.

    Bashing BlackBerry ? Why you trolling here? You did that in many threads. But I will keep my cool here.

    I asked if someone could help. And since when it is bashing when I critize that BlackBerry change a great feature?

    Pardon me then. No malice was intended.

    When you start off with the de facto presumption "Now with 10.3. it is overbloated and complicated", you can excuse me for apparently misinterpreting you.

    Glad you got your answer.

    i have 10.3.0 and passport.

    On home screen, out of nowhere, start type on keyboard "FB testing" hit Enter - you'll have this:

    Attachment 331850
    Attachment 331851

    However, 10.3.0.908 (official os on my pp) some times glitches and it sticks on main assistant window
    In this case press on "start to type field" and you can get same

    Thanks for the help fine sir. Also here no pun intended.

    Good to hear obviously that this feature will return on 10.3.1.

    I don't do leaks, so I wondered how the peeps have this feature. Lol.

    A good day to you friend.
