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. Many of you who used Viira for BlackBerry OS found this feature indispensable for staying organized and being on top of your email and we are glad to be able to bring it in Viira!
Here are is the full list of new feature additions to the Viira feature set in version 5.2:
- Email Tasks. Organize your email by adding an email to any task in Viira. You can then organize your email task and file it in a project, context, day, flag it as a next action or even add a reminder to it. 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.
