BeBuzz / Profiles on 10?
I have always used BeBuzz to manage my notifications for everthing (email/sms/bbm/reminders/phone call). BeBuzz as most people know allows you to set up what you want based on the profile. Will BeBuzz be available at launch? Will 10 have profiles to set up? In otherwords some kind of profile set up interacting with BeBuzzBold 9000 -> Bold 9700 -> TORCH 9800 - > Bold 9700 - > Torch 9800 - > Bold 9900 - > Z10

I was thinking about the exact same thing a few days ago. I'm hoping that they were able to port their application over to BB10. I don't see why they would not. Essentially, the market is exactly the same, as long as there is an LED on the phone.

Yes BlackBerry 10 will have profiles, you can set each application. I have attached images for notifications settings. You will be able to set 3rd party notifications.

Looks like you can't change the LED colour by default though.... or so it seems...--- Smartphone ---

What about on-screen pop-ups like Bepopup gives you? I know the newest BeBuzz was supposed to add that feature into the main app, but it never worked on my 9800 (and several others from the posts about it in the BB apps forum that BellShare basically ignored), so I went back to the previous version of BeBuzz, and reloaded Bepopup.
Something about toasts in BB10 was talked about months ago, but nothing recently, and nothing about it was in the 100 page settings slide show on BGR. Was that abandoned?

With the recent port-a-thon, I've spent quite a bit of time digging through the developer documentation and testing various APIs.
Currently, what BeBuzz does as a 3rd party app on Java BBs will not be possible on BB10.
BB10 does not currently have an API that allows for a "faceless" app to run background services.
To have any app running background services, it would have to be one of the 8 open apps on the app screen.
Then comes the next issue:
I also haven't yet found a method where an open, minimized app can interrupt system events (eg. incoming call) or interrupt the current full-screen'd app. I don't think this is currently possible either.
As far as the LED is concerned, because of these API limitations, you would have to assume that RIM will include the ability to customize the LED within the core UI. It only makes sense IMO.

The screen shots of 10 notification set up dont look too bad and probably will work. What I think I will miss is the Repeat Feature that Bebuzz offers. I really use that . Anyone know if 10 will have a repeat function for noifications?

This is a good question. I relied heavily on the repeat feature bebuzz offered when I had my BB device... I always found it kinda strange that blackberry never offered this as a native feature in the os. when I have seen other smart and even non smart phones have this feature... makes me upset. all be happy if they actually offer colour changing led options... im not expecting a reminder buzz though ):~εrin

Wow! Verizon hasn't released the new Z10 yet, but I am REALLY hoping that BeBuzz or AOS LED gets released for the BB10 OS. I rely on it heavily. Being on-call I use my BB as my pager. BeBuzz allowed me to set reminders (in case I missed a page). Prior versions of BB also allowed me to create a profile that I use at night so only my pager and phone worked -everything else was silenced.
To all the current Z10 owners, have you found anything similar that will allow these settings?
