    Cool app… especially if you are trying to read a sensitive email or document in public.

  • Shogun

    Another gimmick.

    • Sean-Paul

      Haters gonna hate

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      That is all he does here…. he is either a paid trollll or one sad individual

    • Dimitri

      Not really a gimmick seeing as this is very useful for many. How many times have I noticed many looking at my place when I type or do something on the subway or bus.

    • Shogun

      If you have sensitive business to conduct then its best to do so in a place of privacy altogether. This is totally a gimmick and the reason is that the poor shareholders of this company are continuing to bleed out because this company is focused on nonsense like this that brings no value to the outfit whatsoever.

    • Dimitri

      To each their own but many will find this useful. I will for sure download this and use it as i do business everywhere. Not just at work. Also this prevents from numbers u are texting looked at, important information u have and such. Remember not everything is business when u are riding the subway. Images, numbers, important information can be seen if someone is behind u and u don’t see them looking or right beside u.

      Remember not everyone is like you that finds everything Blackberry releases a ” gimmick” or stupid should I add.. Any find their services useful. Have a good day! 🙂

      Last time I heard you were using an iPhone or some other Android. Not a Crapberry so what gives??

    • Dimitri

      Maybe you didn’t read then properly . I said it many times that I was selling my iPhone 7. Anyways I sold the iPhone and using a Blackbery Passport for the time being until the S8 Plus comes out. The Passport is still a great device and actually types faster on my end.

      What gives? Read above 🙂

    • Shogun

      Well gee thanks for clearing that up. I pay enough attention to know you were using an iPhone and/or were/had plans for an Android. Does it matter if I don’t know the finer details? Not really.
      And yes, what device you’re using does matter because you can’t download and use this Privacy Shade app on anything but an Android BB which means you can’t download for your Passport either. Did you read the story properly?

    • Dimitri

      Yes i did. Also for a fact my sister uses a Priv which is a Blackbery Android powered device and I said this a couple of times. Who said I wouldn’t be able to use it on that while she uses my passport so i can review it. I also do reviews and help other out. Not just posting on here.

      Take care!!! 🙂

    • Shogun

      Your sister? Geesus. You’re worse than that other guy that posts here incessantly because he owns a Passport. You’re just a tourist in BlackBerry land.
      And seriously why would you swap phones with your sister? Who does that and for what reason? Pretty damn strange but whatever

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Why do you care? Everyone here knows you have no interest in this app and aren’t going to download it so why are you here?

    • Rev0lver

      Saying Crapberry is very mature and conducive to a good mature discussion….

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Just like his original comment about it being a gimmick…. yet nobody is forcing him to download this FREE app..

      Ps. 90 percent of the drama in BlackBerry articles has a certain poster as the root cause and it is amazing that MS hasn’t banned him… yet they delete our comments calling out his nonsense.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Seems to me that allowing these types of comments is either proof that MS is anti-BBRY or that their posting rules apply to some but not all.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Yup… and executive taking a flight somewhere shouldn’t go or shouldn’t do business while he is at the airport or on the plane because Shogun thinks this app is a gimmick.

      Ps. I thought you aren’t a sharehold so why do you care?

    • Rev0lver

      Another gimmick that you’re absolutely obsessed with.

      Sad.

      But if Apple came out with this app, you’d proclaim it was the greatest thing since sliced bread….

  • Rev0lver

    Well we certainly have some delicate snowflakes moderating comments today…

    But let the trolls keep trolling. We wouldn’t want a certain poster to NOT have a place to spread his obsessive hatred of blackberry.

  • Mel

    One could simply get a 3M privacy sticker/overlay for a few Dollars and it works on any device it fits on, with no special software needed…

    • Shogun

      Yes so true. I guess this is supposed to be more ‘innovation’ from Blackburried though. lol

    • Dimitri

      If Apple or Google did this, I am pretty sure you wouldn’t be saying that exact same post with their names on it. Just some food for thought here.

    • Shogun

      I’m not an Apple or Google shill and that’s on plain display to anyone that cares to bother looking. I’ve often criticized Apple out here but that said there is NO value to the company in offering this stuff and there is NOTHING innovative about it. Its just more BS from a company sinking into oblivion without any way of being able to monetize the stuff.
      Further, what good is it on BB devices only? Is this a sales tactic to get people to buy their junk? The more you look at this company the more it makes little sense its still in business giving away stuff for free that provides no return whatsoever.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      For someone that doesn’t care about this app or BlackBerry devices, you sure do spend a lot of time on BlackBerry articles

    • Dimitri

      While that is true, that could get damaged or ripped off. Then spend more money to get it again and apply it. That’s only a screen protector. Most if not all good screen protectors which have privacy like the Zagg one cost $40-$50 unless u find them on a sale. U get replacements but must have receipt and screen protector to send back. Remember all that.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Doesn’t the overlay cost money?

    • Dimitri

      Yea it does. Also it can get damaged then u must get another one.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Not to mention the app can be turned on and off… the overlay needs to be removed to get rid of the “privacy”.

    • Mel

      But if your device contains sensitive information that you would be viewing often (such as on a work/company issued device), why would you even want to get rid of the “privacy” anyway?

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      I’m not saying the overlay is a bad option… but not everything you are looking at is going to be sensitive information.

    • xBURK

      .

  • xBURK

    Downloaded it. Great stuff. Thank you.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Careful… don’t heap too much praise for this free app or you’ll be referred to as a shill or delusional fanboy.

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Naaaaw….. just speaking the truth

    • Dankey

      You were right; Shoggy come good.

    • Shogun

      Geesus! lol. Great stuff burkey baby?

    • The real Chug that Haterade

      Geesus..figures you’d respond

    • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1

  • BBRYSUXBALLS_2.1
