Our reader Roger apparently still loves his BlackBerry 10. It was enough to get him to switch from an iPhone after 5 years. Well so do I Roger, and you’re not alone. So many have made the switch to BlackDroid but still miss some BlackBerry 10 features, many have switched back, many such as myself never left. If you’re not an app person, there’s still a lot to like about it.
Roger, a marketing specialist, has submitted some well thought out enhancements to the BlackBerry 10 Hub. It was the Hub that originally convinced him to go BlackBerry.

And here is the Hub. This treatment allows you to expand each item to offer more detail or options, such as Instant Reply, share, delete, preview, which would allow you to live longer in the hub, which after all should be the center of all activity.
Notable is the dark theme.
And this is what it looks like with the read notifications greyed (left side bar)
Thanks Roger, for helping to keep BlackBerry 10 alive! And of course for reading UTB.
