Viira 5.0 for Android Released

Filed under: android, gtd — Tags: , — admin @ 1:54 pm

We are happy to announce that version 5.0 of Viira for Android is available for public download. Viira for Android brings the same features and look-and-feel that many of you are familiar with from BlackBerry and BlackBerry 10.

Another big addition to the Viira Android feature set is the Viira Cloud Sync service. You can now sync Viira on your Android device with the Viira Outlook Add-In, Viira Windows App and Viira on BlackBerry 10 to implement one comprehensive, available-from-anywhere GTD system.

Download Viira from Google Play

Here are a few screenshots of how Viira for Android looks now. You can see more of Viira in action from the screenshots page.

And Here are some of the main features available in Viira 5.0 for Android:

  • Projects and contexts. Organize your to-dos by projects and tag a task by as many contexts as needed.
  • Day View. View your day’s commitments and appointments at a glance.
  • Next Actions. Focus on tasks that are actionable. Marking a task as a next action will make it appear at the top of any list the task belongs in.
  • Reminders. You can now add a reminder to any task in Viira.
  • Overdue tasks. Overdue tasks show in Viira’s Day View to make sure nothing ’slips through the cracks’.
  • In-Basket. Perfect for the collection phase of GTD, the In-Basket allows you to add tasks before further filing them in your GTD system at a later point.
  • Quick Add. Available in all views, the Quick Add panel allows you to enter tasks quickly one after the other.
  • Priorities. You can re-order the tasks in any project, context, day as well as within your Next Actions by selecting Reorder Tasks from the menu.
  • Calendar Integration. Viira integrates with the Calendar on your device to display your day’s events and appointments in the Day View.
  • Automatic sorting. Completed tasks get automatically moved to the bottom of any task list whereas next actions get moved to the top.
  • Smart Navigation. Viewing a task presents links to the task’s project, contexts or day, if applicable. Clicking on those links opens the respective project, context or day making it easier for you to navigate with ease over your entire GTD system.
  • Contact Tasks. Just like on BlackBerry and on Microsoft Outlook you can now create tasks based on a contact from Android. Contact tasks can be re-ordered, assigned as next actions and synced across devices and platforms.
  • Smart Contact Resolve. Contact tasks created and synced from the Viira Outlook Add-In or Viira on BlackBerry 10 get resolved against your Contacts database. If there is a match Viira displays the contact’s image (if available) as well as a quick access card with actions for this contact, e.g. call, email, skype, etc.
  • Email Tasks.   A top-level view where you can find all your email tasks. Email tasks can be re-ordered and assigned as next actions. Note that for this version email tasks can only be created from Viira on BlackBery 10 or the Viira Outlook Add-In and then get synced to Viira on Android. In one of the next software updates you will be able to create email tasks from your Android smartphone - so stay tuned!
  • And so much more! Download the free trial and find for yourself what Viira can do!

Download Viira from Google Play

Viira for Android is available for both smartphones and tablets and is compatible with Android 4.0 or later.

Viira 5.4.5 Released: Passport and OS 10.3 Support, Minor Fixes

Filed under: Viira, blackberry10, gtd — admin @ 7:39 am

We just released a minor software update with a few updates worth mentioning. Here is what is new:

  • Support for the new BlackBerry Passport. If you are one of the early adopters and already sporting the new BlackBerry Passport, we have you covered. The latest version of Viira is now fully compatible with BlackBerry’s latest devices
  • Support for OS 10.3. Even though OS 10.3 is not officially released for the remaining BlackBerry 10 devices such as the Z10, Z30, Q5 and Q10 we know many of you are running beta/leaked builds. As of version 5.4.5 Viira is now fully compatible with OS 10.3.
  • Theme compatibility with Q10, Q5 devices. We restored Viira’s signature blue theme to some Q10 and Q5 devices on which some areas of Viira were previously showing in the default dark theme.
  • Auto-scroll on quick add.  When entering tasks in one after the other using Viira’s quick add component Viira automatically scrolls down to the newly added task if the screen is already full with other tasks
  • Support for non-Gregorian calendar (Outlook Add-In and PC App). The Viira Outlook Add-In and PC App function properly on systems that don’t use the Gregorian but instead use alternative calendars popular in some parts of the world such as the Islamic Calendar.

You can download the latest version of Viira from the downloads page.

We just released version 5.2 of Viira for BlackBerry 10 which contains a feature that many of you have requested a lot over the past few months: the ability to associate a task with an email.

Similarly to adding a contact to a task (available since version 5.1), to add an email to a task open the task, click on Add Attchment, then Email and select the email in the list. You can preview the email you are about to add via a long tap. The fast search field is there to help you quickly find the email you were looking for.
  • Hide Completed. A productivity booster, hiding completed tasks makes it easy to focus on what remains to be done. The “Hide Completed” menu option is available in all major Viira views and you can view your completed taska again by selecting “Show Completed”
  • Backup/Restore. You can now backup your Viira data to a file on your SD Card for an extra peace of mind. To achieve an extra level of cloud-based backup you can backup your data to your Dropbox folder and Dropbox will automatically save your Viira backup file to the cloud and replicate it to your other computers and devices on which you have set up Dropbox.
  • Inbasket Reordering. The “Reorder Tasks” panel is now available in the Viira In-Basket as well, enabling you to prioritize your incoming and unassigned tasks.

This release also contains a number of other small additions, tweaks and fixes so make sure to check it out! You can download the latest version of the Viira free trial from BlackBerry World. For those of you who already have the full version you can update to the latest version from here.

GTD Templates: How To Use Them?

Filed under: gtd, poll — Tags: — admin @ 12:23 am

While not part of the core set of GTD principles per se, templates can be a valuable, practical tool that can save time and make certain activities easier to plan and organize. The topic of templates has come up a few times in our email conversations with many of you who use Viira and the Viira Outlook Suite every day and as part of our drive to provide richer support for some of the more advanced aspects of Getting Things Done we want to see if there is something our team can do to make templating easy, effective and intuitive.

So, how do you use templates? Do you use them entirely to enhance your GTD workflow or also to incorporate techniques from methods such as The Checklist Manifesto? How would you like to use templates in Viira to make your life easier?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or drop us an email to our support lines. We would very much appreciate your suggestions as we figure out how exactly to add support for GTD templates in Viira.
