After starring in the biggest fall of a giant in recent years, Blackberry is now dedicated to creating apps that protect you from gossip.
After Nokia, the biggest loser in the revolution Mobile has undoubtedly been BlackBerry. They laughed at the iPhone and by the time they wanted to catch the Android train it was too late. They even allowed themselves to eat the messenger’s toast on WhatsApp when many young people were hooked to BlackBerry Messenger. Today we have to talk about BlackBerry again, but not for their new phones but for an app they just launched.
BlackBerry wants to end the gossip of the subway
Call Privacy Shade, the app darkens and hides software part of the screen of your device so that the gossip on duty cannot read your sideways messages. The app has all kinds of controls to change the opacity and the amount of text displayed, being able to choose between a couple of lines of text or a magnifying glass.
The idea is really useful since in addition to being able to activate and deactivate it at specific times you avoid having to put one of those privacy filters on the screen. In addition, apart from protecting your privacy when you are on the street, the app It is useful when you use the phone at night. By darkening much of the screen you avoid ending up with burned eyes because of the white interfaces that most apps use.
The Privacy Shade is designed to be used with Blackberry Android phones, however, as suggested in The Free Android, you can use it on any Android smartphone if you install Blackberry Manager (here you have an APK). This way you avoid the weird guy sitting next to you on the subway from reading your guasap.
