    Hay friends
    I think the active frames are very cool and potentially useful
    But I feel they are being overlooked and not used.
    For example.
    Bbm always shows previous updates, how about showing ac active glimps or something.
    Clock app. When I have an active timer. It could show a count down enstead of current time.
    Maps could show next direction.

    I just hope BlackBerry and developers keep putting effort into them. It has so much potential.

    Couldn't agree with you more... my use of active frames is just to know and quickly jump between open apps. I find what it displays to be for the most part useless.

    Totally agree with this. The potential is huge, it just isn't yet utilised properly.

    That's what I'm saying
    I love the potential if not being used to potential might as well go back to old way like last os.
    If not used it's just a bigger icon.

    I think what you would like, and I wouldn't mind is more of an Android widget. I don't have any Android devices so not sure what the functionality is, but for what I've read... the Android widgets are much more useful in displaying relevant and current information.

    Don't know mutch about android but when I see my friends android it seems to be always moving something. Looks like a battery killer from what I saw.

    The active frames need to function. Like the "live tiles" from W8 phones...

    Live Tiles served a purpose, and is a great feature of W8.

    That is exactly what I was about to post. Wonder why there is this few discussion about it in the forums. Would love an active frame to show live score from my favorite Soccer club for example.

    Honestly, I (as a webOS fan) would prefer it to be like webOS cards.

    It shows the actual app itself. No, not a still shot of the last thing the OS remembers about the app, but the actual app itself.

    If the webpage is loading it'll show the webpage loading in real time.

    To me the best way to do it is that but allow devs to override that behavior in favor of their own "live tile" like behavior if they choose.
