Why BlackBerry 10 doesn't have an Email app?

I am surprised that BlackBerry 10 doesn't have a separate Email app.


I know what is the first answer: There is the BlackBerry Hub. Use that!

But then why is there an App for BBM when that is also in the Hub?


The second strange thing is that there is an icon for SMS, but that's not a separate app. It is link to the BlackBerry Hub SMS tab. So there are three types of notifications in the Hub: One that have a separate app (BBM, Phone, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), one that have an app link (SMS), and one that has nothing (Email, Notifications, PIN). This could be confusing...


Personally I only would like to use the Hub to see all of the notifications I have received. Now when I write an Email I accidentally leave the Hub on the Email tab. After when I receive a Facebook message I cannot see who wrote me because I left the Hub on the Email tab.

Hey mishi,

Thanks for the post.


I appreciate the feedback on the seperate email application.  I will pass on this feedback.


In the meantime BlackBerry Hub is used to send and receive emails and i'm not sure if there will be a seperate icon in the near future.


Let me know if you have any more questions.
