Ratings and Reviews
Notifications Now Interrmittent
I used to get notifications when I would get an IM, even if the app is running in the background, but now that happens intermittently. It’s been like this for a couple months. I assume a new update or something? I have an iPhone X. This app is pointless if I can get reliable notifications.
Horrible step backwards
My company left Good App and BB Connect to BB Work and BB Connect. What a horrible horrible horrible interface. Each of these BB apps have their own password. No single sign on. BB Connect is NOT interfaced with biometric login. You have to manually enter your cryptic password EVERY TIME YOU OPEN THE APP!!!! Not just once for the day.
Good App has ability to authenticate and verify logins. BB Work and BB Connect do not. BB totally falls down. Every time i am out of office and have to look at my texts I have to open my password vault write down the password and manually enter it. This is ludicrous. BB Connect blocks user from copying and pasting from Keychain and third party password vaults too. Obviously not well thought out. So BB you think this is secure? I have to dumb down my password so I can remember it. Folks. Avoid this app if you can.
Terrible BBerry software - just go out of business already...
Notifies you of old connect sessions you have had on your pc days after the fact. This app is poorly programmed without common sense of what a user would want. Needs more settings / notification options.
Further logging frequently takes minutes on strong connections.
Frequently even when you log off or exit the app via IOS it still pulls in notifications of conversations you are having on your PC. This is terribly annoying when going between working at your desk and conference rooms in the same day.
BlackBerry is just such a joke. They pull back to concentrate on software and even that is subpar.
