This is a huge update for Blaq for BlackBerry 10 and we’d like to thank Jerome Carty for a great job and fantastic dedication to Blaq and its users. Now all that Blaq needs is Hub integration for BlackBerry 10. I’m hoping that @MichaelClewley and BlackBerry make it happen soon so Blaq for BlackBerry 10 will be complete.

Do you use Twitter? Upgrade your Blaq now! If it’s not showing up in the updates yet, keep checking, it’s on the way!
