I have been begging BlackBerry to add more swipe gestures in the BlackBerry Hub and it seems like they are listening. Michael Clewley just revealed a much needed yet unintuitive (until you know it) gesture to swipe between messages in the BlackBerry 10 hub in the latest OS 10.1 Maintenance Release (and many leaks). You simply swipe back like the peek gesture and then continue it up or down to swipe to the previous or next message. Its still slow and has too much animation for my taste but its better than nothing! Hopefully they speed it up.
BlackBerry also added the the ability to hit the “U” key on BlackBerry Q10 and Q5 devices to go to the next unread message. Now I just need a quick shortcut to only show unread messages in a custom search. Here is to hoping we get many many more of these refinements!
