Per Email Notifications & Vibration Shows Up in BlackBerry 10.1 Beta

IMG_00000003 IMG_00000004

One of the areas I really want BlackBerry to work on for BlackBerry OS 10.1 is the notifications. I am really missing the world class notification options on BlackBerry OS 7 that are missing on BlackBerry 10. One of those features that I need is the ability to have a different notification per email address or even silence certain email addresses. Turns out that the BlackBerry 10.1 Developer Beta includes this option! You can also set how many times you wish for the phone to vibrate per notification.

As you can see above BlackBerry has also added each email address as a separate line in the share menu. Here are some of the other options I am personally waiting for BlackBerry to add back:

  • Different notification options for BBM messages vs BBM Groups
  • The ability to set a different notification volume and vibration length per email, sms, etc
  • The ability to create your own notification profiles beyond the preset ones
  • The option to have different notifications inside and outside the holster

Let us know what you want to see BlackBerry add back!

  1. The Transition is now complete…

    Thank you #Blackberry for listening to the users!

  2. Yeah definitely moving in the right direction

  3. Need the same options for phone functionality. Keep my phone setting on vibrate and it vibrates 20+ times before going to voicemail.

  4. I miss different LED colors for different notifications,
    like the blue for BBM and red for mails in OS 7.

    Also the mute physical button action should be configurable, again like OS 7 devices with one shortcut button.
    I never use voice recognition anyway….

    fingers crossed for 10.2

  5. I would really like to see multiple alarms without having a third party application. It’s a pain to have to keep my alarm app as an active frame.

    • They are supposed to include headless apps – background apps in the new update. But, I agree, there should be multiple alarms in the native app.

  6. i missed memopads, select all opetion (highlight sms and email), save msgs, save contacts number opetion (mobile 1 and mobile 2, home 1 and home 2), Os 7 ringtones, email fit to screen , twitter direct msg reply only from hub! should be from twitter app also , emails icon

  7. the ability to view and email saved BBM History by date. I had this on my last BB Curve, why can I only view and email a day or so worth of BBM messages?

  8. I might just pick up a Z10 (again) after it starts shipping with 10.1…

    Another feature I couldn’t find on 10.0 was grouping emails by subject line. The new grouping seemed to be true conversation threading, but I’m looking for simple grouping based on the text of the subject line.

    Also, +1 on the custom sound profiles. I definitely use.
