Let's roll! .. first question on Documents To Go

[ Edited ]

Hi Team BlackBerry! Welcome to the second Community Insider Event. My name is Annu Dawar and I’m here all day to answer all of your support questions regarding BlackBerry 7 OS. Please ask away!


Alex kicked off his Insider Event with a common question, so I figured I should do the same thing and try to one up him.


Question: BlackBerry 7 includes Documents To Go Premium version, but what exactly is the difference between the Premium and Free versions of this app?


Answer: In OS5 and OS6, we included the free version of Documents To Go, but in BlackBerry 7 we bumped it up and threw in the premium version…..FOR FREE! The big difference between the premium version and the free version is that you get a Adobe PDF reader, the ability to actually create Word/Excel/PowerPoint files on your handheld along with more powerful editting features. For a full list, look here: http://download.dataviz.com/pdf/brochures/documentstogo_bb_en.pdf.


I hope you are getting the most out of Documents To Go on your BB7 smartphone, I am!

That was a nice improvement with OS7, often overlooked. In the past one had to purchase a third party app for viewing PDF documents stored on the Media Card.

Re: Let's roll! .. first question on Documents To Go

I love the fact that I can create a full powerpoint presentation on my BlackBerry Bold 9930. Great when I'm on the go, or need to prepare last minute. I just create slides. When I'm giving a talk or in a meeting where am leading the conversation, I launch the presentation view and flip through the slides easily using my finger to reference content. The touch screen display and performance is fantastic!

This is definitely a killer-feature available to people out of the box.

Too bad the newer docs from a mac wont open on OS 7 if using BES 4.1. OS 6 and lower will open them with out issue. You can save the attachment and then open it as a work around though, but some users think this is terrible.


Yes we can upgrade to BES 5, but it is not an option for everyone just for this issue.

Re: Let's roll! .. first question on Documents To Go

Does the Premium version work only on OS7.0 phones? I mean, If I extract the version from my OS7.0 phone and install it on my OS6.0 phone, will it work?
