    -BlackBerry Tasks VS Google Tasks No comment, don't use them

    -BlackBerry Files VS Files Go by Google Neither, ES File Explorer or Solid Files

    -BlackBerry Launcher VS G Now Launcher Blackberry or Nova. I'm using Nova



    Generally speaking, I use none of the Google apps. Google doesn't need more of may data. I have not really liked their apps anyway, after trying them out. There are many other options.

    I use all the BB apps. I don't like the Google ones, and @LiamQ and the rest of the hub team are usually pretty good about fixing issues I report, can't say that about Google or even Samsung in my experience.
    also running a work profile with Hub apps, so like the bb10ish experience of everything in one place. I do use the BB Tasks and notes too
    I don't do any social media, but my wife does and uses Hub and loves the everything-in-one-place it provides.

    Maybe Google should make a notification app in addition to the notification center?

    Their prerogative to do so. Until they do, the basic Android notifications drawer isn't enough for anything other than most recent new messages, and I find even then it can quickly get cludgy and overfull of crap with no way to filter, search or scroll etc.

    I find most Google Apps clunky at best. The only one I actually like is Keep. But quite frankly, the Android BB apps are only marginally better, except for the Hub email, which is good, the phone app borders on terrible. Even the Blackberry Calendar is not as good as the BB10 version. I use Textra for Text. I like ASUS ZenUI Contacts, but after a recent exchange of my Key1, it won't re-load. Actually, since I have immersed myself into Android on both a DTEK60 and Key1, I realize how much better the BB apps are on my Z30, except for the stock browser. Its too unfortunate that the core BB10 apps with their business centric simplicity don't seem to translate to Android very well, the hub being the exception. (phone, text, clock, calendar)
