The Hub can be customized to identify priority messages and to filter the message list by various criteria that you can then activate with a simple pinch gesture.
BBMÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ BBM on the BlackBerry Z3 includes all the latest features of the popular mobile social network like BBM Channels and BBM Stickers.
BlackBerry KeyboardÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry Keyboard learns what words you use and how you use them, then offers them up to you so you can type faster and more accurately. It gives you the best typing experience on a touchscreen, complete with multi-language support that lets you type in up to 3 different languages at the same time.
Time Shift & Story MakerÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry Z3Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s Time Shift camera feature lets you capture a group shot where everyone is smiling with their eyes wide open. You can also use Story Maker to bring a collection of photos and videos together, along with music and effects, to produce an HD movie that you can instantly share on YouTube.
BlackBerry 10 BrowserÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry 10 browser sets the industry benchmark for HTML5 performance on smartphones, and is incredibly fast, with fluid and responsive scrolling and zooming. The browser includes many advanced features, supports multiple tabs, lets you browse sites privately, includes a reader mode, and integrates with the platform for easily sharing content.

You can even reply to your BBM or SMS messages in any app, or swipe to the BlackBerry Hub to respond. If you get a phone call that you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t answer right way, you can instantly silence the call and send a Reply Now response through BBM, SMS or email to let the caller know youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re busy
Fast, Easy SharingÃ‚Â Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The BlackBerry Z3 learns how you share and who you share with, helping you reduce the number of steps and amount of time it takes to get your files, photos, or documents to where they need to go. Touching Ã¢â‚¬Å“shareÃ¢â‚¬Â in any app provides suggestions on who and how to share your files based on who youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve shared with in the past, and the feature only gets smarter the more you use it.
