    Not sure if a thread has been started by already.

    In the hub, with the PK exposed, a swipe down from the top of the keyboard reveals the day's calendar activities. Seems to only do this while in the hub.

    I have a fix. Sign up for the OneNote for Android Alpha testing program. Installed the Alpha and it's working fine. No more error on loading.

    To do so, join the Alpha Goolge+ Comunity here: https://plus.google.com/communities/...86319398193458

    Then follow the instructions to become a tester and the Alpha will update your current OneNote install.

    You can add access for Hub in the yahoo Web portal. You just need to create a key or grant access.

    I decided to make this thread so we can help make the Priv better, and add some positivity to the Priv forums. Post your tips and tricks. **These are tips and tricks where you don't have to download an app to make something better.** I guess we could save that for another thread. Anyway, some of you may know these but some may be new.

    - Double tap the screen to wake up the Priv. My wife kept using the power button.

    - Use the productivity tab edge feature. It's pretty much BB10's peek feature. I can swipe over, and then without lifting my finger swipe back.

    - You can change the recent apps to look like BB10's by going to settings/display/recents and set it to tiles. I didn't care for the default masonry.

    - Saw some complaining about the whites looking to warm. This can be adjusted by going to settings/display/color adjust

    - Dislike bloatware? Open app drawer. Hold the app you dislike, and drag it to the disable label. The app won't be uninstalled, but it won't run and you won't receive notifications, and the app will be removed from the app drawer.

    - Just like with BB10 you can swipe across the white page dots to quickly get to the page you want. (I'm talking about the white dots above the app drawer)

    - Turn on Pop-up widgets. Hold a blank spot on the homescreen, and go to settings. Pop-up widgets are very useful. For example, if I swipe up or down on Google Chrome, instead of tapping the app to fully open it, it shows my desktop/mobile bookmarks for me to choose

    - Long pressing a key on the keyboard allows you set up that key to open an app/speed dial/compose messages, but the phone also has Short-press shortcuts. Hold a blank spot on the homescreen, and go to settings. Tap "typing action" and change it to "Use a short-press keyboard shortcut". For example on my phone, short-pressing the C key opens the CB app, but long-pressing the C call my wife Crystal.

    - If you only want email notifications from the Hub and not Gmail also, open Gmail, swipe over from the left edge, scroll down to settings, tap your email address and turn off notifications

    - Make your phone look like your previous BB10 phone as much as possible to somewhat feel at home. That's what I've done.

    My main screen is similar to BB10's "Show Wallpaper When All Apps Are Closed" setting
    Tips, tricks and discoveries-homescreen.jpg

    My 2nd screen is similar to the apps layout I had on my Passport except for the Etsy seller widget.
    Tips, tricks and discoveries-2nd-page.jpg

    Those are most of the tips and tricks that I can think of at the moment. Hope this helps someone. Feel free to add more tips please.

    I haven't seen too much about this and I'm curious. Does it show preview of all your hub messages like when you peek in bb10? And is it accessible from within any app?

    Also unrelated, is it possible to rotation lock the phone in landscape?

    Thanks for this. I wasn't sure if disabling Gmail sync would stop the Hub syncing also.

    Just noticed the productivity edge ribbon can be moved on the side of the screen by holding it and putting it where you'd like.

    Super late reply, but it shows a couple of your most recent unread messages. It is accessible in any app. I haven't seen a way to rotation lock the phone in landscape.

    Yes, use an app called Set Orientation for rotation lock.

    How does one change the notification profile to "silent" or "vibrate only" if you are in a meeting? This was super easy with BB10 (swipe down from the top, tap on the Notifications tab) but I'm having a hard time finding it with Android.

    Thanks!

    Take an app or widget on an existing home screen and drag it to the edge of the phone and it will automatically add another home screen.

    I just did it this way:

    Pull down the notification drawer
    Click on the user icon to the right of the battery twice
    Make sure the correct user is highlighted
    Click the button for 'More Settings' under the users
    Click on the User you want to edit
    Click on the little pencil in the top right hand corner of the card that pops up
    About half way down you should be able to change your picture. You can either take or select a new pic.
    Save your changes with the check mark in the upper left corner.

    Hope that helps!
