arggggg now we have embedded link icons for the mail sites as part of the OS like NFB before. tried deleting last night and found an update this morning for 6mb and of course it was for the icons I deleted.
That would annoy me seeing an AOL icon that I couldn't delete. I don't get the purpose of putting them on your home screen if they are just links. Let the user decide if he wants a link to those services or at least allow them to be deleted.
That's one reason I jailbroke my iphone. So I could hide the stock,weather & youtube icons.
Yeah, I deleted them and then suspected that was what the small update was that showed up but ran it just in case. Now that I know, I won't do the small update and they'll stay gone, at least until the next big update. Not a huge issue, to me.
Because I think AOL and Gmail and Hotmail are bad products by bad companies, in some cases companies I actively boycott, and I like a clean, efficient screen space customizable to my workflow. I have this with every other piece of technology I own.
Once there, click on "Your Blackberry Tablet" from the top menu; then look in the "Personalize" section; and the click on the demo titled "Move or Hide Apps".
Despite the title of the demo indicating that it will show you how to hide apps, and despite the opening introduction of the demo that indicates that the demo will indicate how to hide apps - the demo does not explain how to hide apps.
I had to listen and watch it four times to make sure I didnt blink and missed a little trick of hiding apps. Hopefully, a way to hide apps does, or will, exist in the future.
Why's it stick in your crawl so much, who cares. Oh, and, they've always been there btw..
not so. i only had 2 before, now the list had grown to include all the worthless (to me) fb, aol etc.
i do not mind deleting them so much, as these constant update notifications. they are so wasteful and downright annoying.
and if these are just links, why such a royal treatment? why are they making os think they are important pieces and wanting to try to update the pb?
i saw several threads about os notifications which confuse people into thinking that something went wrong with their updates. that is not a good customer service.
