What's the one app you use everyday and could not get by without?

I consider BBM to be a function of the OS on BB10 therefore it's not eligible to be considered as a favorite app along with the calendar, browser, remember, etc.

Therefore, I have to say that my most used app outside the OS itself would have to be Gnews Reader, followed closely by UTB. They could flip flop for number one depending on the day.

Many "apps" are part of BB10 OS, but BBM still counts. Otherwise no native apps pre-installed would count.

I'd say that Password Keeper is one that is essential for me as well.

Agree with DL. Only app I would preclude from this list is the phone "app."

An OS is a collection of apps by definition so in a way we are both right.

I draw the line by long pressing an icon. If it is available for deletion then I label it an app. If not, it is part of the OS.

That's my definition anyway.

I am in no way diminishing the usefulness of BBM or any of the other mentioned apps, OS functions, what have you.

If we are using the broadest definition of app then I would have to say that Hub is the number one app for me, followed closely by BBM and Browser.

Well said BB4tw. Nice definition of an "app." Sometimes though, you longpress an icon and cannot delete it, as in the case of Amazon when you have the Verizon OS version. Amazon is definitely an app, so I don't know where that leaves your definition. Also, how does it fit in if there is an entire category of apps in BBWorld even though the native "app" is not deletable? For instance, Remember is not deletable, but there is a slew of task and note managers in BBWorld. Thus, it's hard not to consider Remember an "app."

I totally agree with you about the HUB. I see it as an app though. What do you think about my comments?

A BlackBerry abuser w/o using BBM daily is like watching your TV with eyes closed! BlackBerry Browser, File Manager, and BlackBerry Hub follow as well. Big_smile2
