Blackberry

For years now, dogs have been referred to as "man's best friend." But when it comes to a businessman, it is the BlackBerry that makes the cut. Renowned for their secure enterprise solutions, BlackBerrys have managed to exceed the role of a smartphone and have become a virtual secretary, to many. And with the BlackBerry App World offering a series of brilliant apps to enhance productivity, their functionality continues to extend rapidly. So, for those entrepreneurs whose business is run out of a BlackBerry, here are four neat apps that will make your life easier:Name of the app -

CamCard

Description -

Business card reader

Function -

CamCard allows users to take pictures of business cards and extract important information like names, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. Considering that the BlackBerry is patronized by businessmen who travel extensively, CamCard supports 16 European and Asian languages apart from English. There is also a batch processing option which allows users to scan up to hundred cards at a stretch. It is a paid app. But since it avoids the need for a separate card reading device, it might well be worth it.

Name of the app -

AddTo

Description -

Harness information from emails and text messages and build it into your schedule

Function -

AddTo helps users take information from their emails and text messages and make it usable on other built-in apps. Through an uncomplicated pop-up menu, it makes it possible for users to swiftly create to-do-lists, memos and appointments without having to resort to copy-pasting across apps. Priced at less than a dollar, it can save business users precious time through its easy interface.

Name of the app -

Wifi File Transfer

Description -

Exchange of files between BlackBerry and computer over Wifi

Function-

If you've ever been through the harrowing experience of trying to find the cord to connect your BlackBerry to your computer for an extremely urgent file transfer, you'd find this app to be a boon. One of the most downloaded paid apps in the BlackBerry App World, it makes it possible to simply drag-and-drop files between the BlackBerry and the computer over the wireless network. It also gives users the option of viewing the contents of the BlackBerry from the computer through a browser.

Name of the app -

Copy2Contact

Description -

Extract contact details from email signatures and text messages

Function -

When it comes to business, most requests for, let's say, contact information or a resource are replied to, either through email or through a text message. More often than not, it is accessed on a need-basis at that point and left behind in the inbox. Copy2Contact does away with the painful process of having to copy and paste contact details by allowing selection and instant creation of such contacts easily. And in this case, ease of use comes at a price.

So, what are you waiting for? Pick the app which suits your needs and watch your productivity soar. Also, do you know of other great business apps for the BlackBerry? Do share them with us along with your views as an user. You can also write to us atfeedback@yourstory.in.
