Viira Is Coming To BlackBerry 10

Filed under: Viira, blackberry, blackberry10 — admin @ 2:50 am

We received a lot of questsions since the BlackBerry 10 launch so we wanted to confirm: Viira will be available on BlackBerry 10. We are very committed to the BlackBerry platform and are super excited about the BB10 roll out and the amazing capabilities it brings.

Viira on BlackBerry 10 will be a completely native experience, built using Cascades (the new environment provided by BlackBerry 10) and will come with a lot of the signature BB10 capabilities like flow, peek and deep integration with PIM data on your device. We are working around the clock to meet a February 18th deadline and get Viira certified as Built For BlackBerry, so keep your fingers crossed for us!

We actually already have a BB10 version of Viira approved for distribution by App World. This version is the port of the Viira for Android. If you are familiar with the BlackBerry 10 environment you probably know that BB10 provides a way for Android apps to run natively on the device.

Initially we were planning on launching on BlackBerry 10 with our Android version however the more we learned about the exciting capabilities of Cascades the more we liked what we saw. So we decided to change the course and offer a completely native experience right from the start.

We expect Viira for BlackBerry 10 to be available for download by month’s end, depending on App World approval and how long it takes to attain Built For BlackBerry status.  Stay tuned!

Complimentary Upgrade To BB10

We will also provide a complimentary upgrade to Viira for BB10 to anyone who purchases the full version of Viira or the Viira Outlook Suite on or after 01 February 2013. So if you like what Viira has to offer on your BlackBerry but plan on upgrading to BB10 you don’t need to wait in order to take advantage of everything Viira can do.

  2. Hi Chad,

    Viira for BlackBerry 10 is currently waiting for App World approval. Unfortunately App World is currently bogged down, they have had LOTS of app submissions and apps are currently taking weeks to process and approve. Viira for BB10 has been waiting for almost 3 (!) weeks now!

    The folks at BlackBerry have reassured us that they are working around the clock to get everything approved as fast as they can. So realistically you can expect to see Viira for BlackBerry 10 available for download within a 1- 2 weeks.

    We will post here on our blog some screenshots of how Viira on BlackBerry 10 looks like over the next few days.

  4. Hi Chad,

    I have added an extra BB10 license key for you on our system so to take advantage of your complimentary upgrade offer just download the free trial Viira for BB10 from App World http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/23751885/ then open Viira and select “Activate” from the menu on top (swipe from the top of your screen). Enter your email and password and Viira will activate the full version for you.

    Now, the version of Viira for BlackBerry 10 in App World does not sync with Outlook the way the Viira Outlook Suite BlacKBerry client does. Wwe will be rolling out the cloud sync service next month which will provide the missing link between BlackBerry 10 and the Viira Outlook plugin so stay tuned!

  5. How do I activate the paid version? I bought it with my BlackBerry id and didn’t use a passage other than my BlackBerry id one. In other words I didn’t have to enter A unique pw just for your app..

  6. Allan, did you purchase the full version through BlackBerry World? If you did you don’t need to do anything special to activate, just download it and start using it.

    BlackBerry World doesn’t support (yet) try-and-buy distribution so right now there are two entries of Viira in BlackBerry World: the free trial and the full version. So if you bought the full version there just download it and start using it.

    I will also get support to email you a license key if you wish to activate the free trial and continue using that. Both are really the same app but because of the lack of try-and-buy for BB10 apps we have had to split things like this. We will merge the two entries once try-and-buy becomes available.
