    Anyone think or know if the classic will feature the BBOS alt - back app switching? I thought maybe it would just switch through active frames.

    That would certainly be a nice feature to bring back from BBOS.

    Wow I remember and loved that feature but I'm thinking not since the app switching is different in OS10

    BBOS was so powerful. Hope BB10 improves faster now with the release of these 2 latest phones.

    I thought maybe it could show the active frames and have one highlighted and it moves through the list

    Actually it has something better it's called


    Press back or end or peek to app switch!!!!!!

    All three bring you to your home screen where all your open apps are it's really amazing


    Way faster now that you can do the same action with only one key press instead of two like bbos

    Good idea. From what I've heard there are a lot of legacy shortcuts coming to BB10 soon with the launch of the classic. I don't know if said shortcut will be included but it's certainly a feature they should consider.

    That is a strange shortcut. In BBOS all you had to do was long press the menu key. It takes me exactly 1 second to switch apps on my 9930.

    But then you have to move from the tool belt to the touchscreen. The alt-backspace allows you to quickly scroll through your open apps, then select one without touching the screen at all. Some people liked that more to minimize how much smudging they do on the screen...
