What the Pop Up Widget??? Another Blackberry KeyONE trick!

Sprint Product Ambassador

I love the fact that I keep finding new and useful tricks on the Blackberry KeyONE. This time I've found a super easy way to access some of my most used apps without having to actually open them all the way! 

I don't know about you, but after I open apps I tend to leave them open, eventually slowing down my devices. Also, I don't use many widgets on my screens. I prefer a simple clean looking device, plus I find they tend to drain battery quickly - though I definitely limit some of the functionality I could gain from using widgets.

... and then I found PopUp Widgets and I'm able to get the best of both worlds. 


So, check this out - any apps you have on your screen (not in the app drawer) that have 3 dots under them means it's PopUp Widget capable. Just swipe up on the icon and you'll have quick access to a widget without having to open the app!  Check out the 'Android Central' PopUp widget for example and you'll see the top news articles immediately. Swipe up on the calendar and you'll have quick access to view your calendar without having to open the full app. 


Just another well thought out feature on the BBK1.
