The 5 Best Productivity Apps for BlackBerry
BlackBerry smartphones are incredibly useful when it comes to working at a business. However, there are several BlackBerry apps that will increase productivity when using the smartphones from this popular brand. While this isn't a full list of all of the best productivity apps for BlackBerry smartphones, here are five apps available from the App World that are incredibly useful.
1. Documents To Go
Microsoft Office is important for most people to be productive, allowing everything from simple word processing to in-depth spreadsheet creation. However, times may come when an Office user needs to view, edit or create documents while away from a computer. Documents To Go is a mobile office BlackBerry.com app suite that is compatible with all of the Microsoft Office programs and can even play PowerPoint presentations on the BlackBerry.
2. Blurts Pro
It is frustrating to miss important calls or text messages when working on the computer and the BlackBerry phone is not in plain view. Fortunately, Blurts Pro can solve these problems by sending call and SMS alerts directly to a PC via a Bluetooth connection. Even more convenient, text messages can be sent directly from the computer. Blurts Pro costs $5.99 from the BlackBerry App World, but it is recommended to try the free trial version first to ensure compatibility.
The calendar function included on BlackBerry smartphones is great, but sometimes important dates can be forgotten if the user forgets to check them. Fortunately, deToday solves that problem by placing calendar appointments right on the home screen so they remain in plain view. Users can keep any custom themes on the phone and it will not affect the display of calendar events. Plus, it automatically syncs with new events.
4. WiFi File Transfer
Accessing files on a computer from a BlackBerry is a breeze with WiFi File Transfer. The app provides a wireless IP address that a computer can connect to wirelessly, allowing the user to download any files on the computer to the BlackBerry. While there are many different ways to access computer files with a BlackBerry, this app is by far the easiest route to take.
5. Ring Scheduler
This app schedules different ringtones for different times of the day, preventing users from missing calls because they forgot to turn their phone back on from silent mode. It's a simple app, but can be incredibly useful for preventing missed calls.
