Modern workforce has considered Blackberry phones their Swiss Army knives helping them perform different tasks using just one high-end device. In 2009, Research in Motion launched its online store, the Blackberry App World. Users found an easy venue for sifting through apps in accordance to their need and pocket. Its later version, Blackberry World 2.0 made everything even more convenient and quicker for the user by giving them more payment options. RIM puts in a lot of thought while making a device and resultantly Blackberry phones have been making users’ life simpler and more efficient. Many apps on the Blackberry App World are also designed around this concept.
Here is our pick of the top 10 apps to enhance the productivity of Blackberry users:
Top 10 Blackberry Productivity Apps:
Conqu: To cater to the needs workaholics, the Blackberry app World offers Conqu. This particular app is a top-notch task management tool which allows the user to punch in different tasks. With this app, tasks can be organized into projects of many to-do lists or archives. Once a task has been completed it merges with the background.
File Manager Pro: Developed by Terms Mobility, this app is a large step towards organizing the data in your phone. It allows the user to send large files using their Blackberry device by zipping them. It also unzips received files and organizes the data in the phone.
Sayit: Any converts from iOS expecting a Siri replacement in Blackberry 10 maybe disappointed with the native voice control. To fill up the gap, however, we have the Sayit app. It allows the user to make voice calls, search the web, schedule appointments, take notes, launch apps, check the times of the day abroad, translate to and from 25 different languages and even ask general knowledge questions. Although it falls short as far as dictating messages is concerned but that is where Blackberry’s own voice control jumps in.
AlertMatrix: AlertMatrix app is designed especially for professionals who are bombarded every day with unwanted calls and messages. The app has the ability to avoid calls like that by setting calls and messages from important people on priority. Your Blackberry device is automatically going to alert you for calls and messages from the numbers on the priority list and stay silent for calls and messages from unwanted numbers. Moreover, you can also set alert tones for different numbers so that you can distinguish between the received calls without even glancing at your phone.
Luko Land Remote: This is one of the most useful Blackberry apps as it allows the device to be synched with a PC over the local Wi-Fi. It functions like a remote control for devices like PCs and televisions.
Alarm Clock: One of the major functions which the Clock app in Blackberry devices fails to perform is setting time for more than one alarm. As the name suggests, the alarm clock allows you to set more than one alarm with its repeat days and alarm tones. The app displays a digital clock with a brightness slider built in. it also allows you to customize the alarm’s snooze.
Gadget Box: Gadget Box is like a tool box for Blackberry phones consisting of levels, rulers, protractors, compasses, and more. The interface is not a great one but the tools which the app presents are very useful especially for those in the construction business.
Groovy Notes: This app is like the native Remember app but with a fresher layout. The notes that you make via this tool are displayed in a calendar view. The user can attach audio visual treats to the notes, include tags and organize the notes in categories.
Clipman Clipboard Manager: This productivity app is for those who move data from one app to another in the Blackberry phones. This app is able to store recent data that you have saved in different storage apps on the phone while it is running in the background.
Hub++: Hub++ allows the Blackberry user to prioritize notifications they receive on the basis of the e-mail or phone number of the sender. You can also set different notification alerts for particular senders. This app, like the AlertMatrix is designed for those who want to sift through their notifications in order of priority.
RepliGo Reader: A lot of thought has been put into how Blackberry renders webpages on small screens. The device does that very well and allows PDF files to be opened and read. Here the RepliGo Reader app jumps into action. It allows the user to save PDF files to be the phone’s removable memory and display them in ‘full fidelity’.
