    I liked leaving the device on the desk, say at a meeting, and being able to see email/bbm popups etc. using Email++, BBM Popup etc; which allowed me to glance at the phone, and see if I needed to do anything further. Do we think third parties are able to program pop-up alerts again for Blackberry 10?

    Some people had been requesting this in another thread so I did some tests to see what is possible. The result was promising but not where I'd want it to be in order to release an app. First, there is no way to create a custom popup, it has to use the system popup type, which to me isn't all that nice to look at. And secondly which was a bigger hold back for me is that there is no way to turn on the backlight from an app. So it just seems pointless right now to put out an app for popups. Once things change I'll release mine.

    You can use HUB++ for now.
    Hopefully, developers will get more access to these things in future releases of BB 10.

    This is being baked into the 10.2 release. Popup (toast) notifications as well as lock screen previews.

    I was just gonna say 10.2 has toast. I think that will definitely improve the usability of BB10.

    Hub++ removed the pop up when 10.2 had its own notifications. Now looking at Bebuzz, which brings that back nicely. It's not headless, but it's active tile had a useful battery meter which est remaining time on battery.
