Hidden BBOS10 features (tips and tricks!)
So looks like there are many tweaks and small features that don't maybe come in daily use, but are there.
This just shows the time invested in the precision and making if the BlackBerry 10 OS.
How about we cumulate as many as we can? Something to learn everyday right?
also, i have sorted them out on the basis of the "hidden" factor lol, so as u scroll down, the tricks become more main streamed
1) long pressing any option in the bottom action bar (in any screen,eg.hub)will make a thin black bar pop up, having the name of the option u are pressing.(works only when the name isn't visible and only the icon of the action is visible, eg. landscape mode in hub)
2) swipe backwards anywhere on the keyboard to delete the last word u typed; two fingers swipe deletes two words and so on (get harder after three lol)
3) long press the back button in the browser to get a pop up of recent history
EDITED more tips and tricks!! (thanks for posting them guys, i just compiled them)
4)Hold down the shift key and press the backspace button to delete the character in front of your cursor.
5)If you click and hold on the date part of the Hub right under the words BlackBerry Hub, you will get additional options to mark prior read or delete prior read.
6) When viewing a webpage, use two fingers to pull up the keyboard, then the usual shortcuts can be used. B for bottom, T for top.long press T to scroll to the top of a page, long press B to scroll to the bottom. Short press space bar to scroll down short spaces without swiping, shift key and space bar to scroll up without swiping.Holding the space bar also scrolls all the way to the bottom, holding shift plus space scrolls all the way to the top.
7)long press in green focus camera will make focus lock, very good for closeup photo when you need focusing on a thing.
8)At bootup, when the blackberry logo is progressing to 100%, you can already adjust the volume when it's around 70%. This let's you adjust or check your volume level before the phone totally boots up and starts receiving messages.
9)If you want to dismiss the keyboard with just one hand , press and hold the space bar for two seconds.
10)Hold shift and drag the circle cursor to select text
11)Swipe down from top bezel of the browser to show name of current website. Tap the bar that drops down to scroll back to the top of the page
12)In Calendar app, go to month view. Slide down from the middle of the screen (just like on BES to choose between personal and work). Then you get 4 months view(on Q10, on Z10/Z30 I think its 6 months view)!
13)U can double tap on the lock screen notification (if u have interactive notifications turned on) to go to the application directly from which you have received the notification from
14)Down flicks with thumb takes you to symbols on the keyboard . Two fingers back multiple word delete
15)Double swipe up from bezel to reveal the keyboard. This one should be a given and the keyboard itself responds to many different gestures
16)If you want to use BBM in landscape mode. Try using it in Hub.
Since BBM doesn't support landscape mode.
17)swipe from top right to bottom left five times to restart the Hub
18)Tap with two thumbs at a time on typing field. The app closes or crashes. Try on bbm chat
KEEP 'EM COMING PEOPLE!!! I will update as soon as u guys post!
