Taming Android from the perspective of a hardcore BlackBerry user
As I’ve heard from countless loyal readers, the last few years have been filled with millions of BlackBerry users migrating to other platforms (willingly and unwillingly), with most going to Android and iOS – and BlackBerry 10 has failed to turn the tide. I have been carrying a second phone (iOS and Android) and the experience has at times made me feel like a fish out of water. Critical features that embodied the “BlackBerry experience,” like AutoText, Profiles/LED notifications, proper notes, and advanced PIM are only recently coming to Android/iOS, if at all, and the experience is unintuitive at best.
That is why I decided to launch a new Android website, AndroidEffect – to share my views on how to tame Android from the perspective of a hardcore BlackBerry user. This will not be yet another Android news site. Instead, we will focus on how all Android users can squeeze the maximum efficiency, productivity, and fun out of their Android devices. With this mission, AndroidEffect is a great resource for BlackBerry expats who want the latest apps, accessories, tips, and tricks for getting the most out of Android.
BerryReview will continue to be the one stop shop for everything you need to know about BlackBerry (and I will continue to post content daily), though there will mostly likely be a shift away from consumer devices as BlackBerry’s CEO focuses the company on enterprise and government. AndroidEffect is a sister site that will provide tips and tricks for acclimating to and thriving on Android.
