Viira 5.1 for BlackBerry 10: Reminders, Contact Tasks, Task Reordering And More

Filed under: Viira, blackberry, blackberry10 — admin @ 8:26 am

The latest software update to Viira for BlackBerry 10 brings a lot of exciting capabilities which we hope many of you will find useful and help you stay organized in your day-to-day lives. These features make good on the promise we made earlier this srping to bring every feature in Viira for BlackBerry OS available on BlackBerry 10 (and also on Android, that’s coming next month).

Here is what is new in Viira 5.1 for BlackBerry 10:

  • Reminders. Every task in Viira for BlackBerry 10 can now have a reminder. Reminders are associated with a system-level reminder event and will appear in your BlackBerry 10 Calendar.
  • Contact Tasks. You can now manage contacts, customers and key relationships and integrate them in your portable GTD system. Attaching a contact to a task is easy: just open the task and click on the “Add Attachment” button. It is like adding a touch of CRM to your GTD system.
  • Task Reordering. Being able to prioritize tasks has been a key capability in Viira for BlackBerry OS and we are pleased to bring it to BlackBerry 10. You can reorder the tasks in any project, context, day as well as in the Next Actions view by selecting “Reorder Tasks” from the menu. Then use the touchscreen control and reorder the tasks as you see fit! (see screenshot below)

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.

You will notice that clicking on “Add Attachment” also lists a number of other attachments types that we are working on making available shortly, such as images, files and most importantly email messages. We are very excited about this productivity capabilities that new attachment types can bring so stay tuned!

And here are some screenshots of how the latest version of Viira looks on BlackBerry 10:

  1. Are there any functionality differences between the trial and “full” versions? When will it be possible to attach emails to tasks? Thanks.

  2. Benjamin, there are now feature differnces between the free trial and the full version. The only difference between the two is that the free trial has a limit no how much data you can enter in Viira. At present the limit is 7 projects, 7 contexts and 40 tasks. The free trial also expires in 14 days.

    We are actively working on being able to attach emails to a task, this feature will most likely be available in the next software update (free update to all buyers of the full version) so stay tuned!

  4. Hi Richard,

    You should have received an automated email from our system containing your license key. The license key is for archiving/backup purposes only though, BlackBerry World should let you re-download the purchased version of Viira at any point in the future.

    I will be sending your contact information to our support staff for them to get in touch and email you your license key, in case the automated email didn’t make it all the way to your Inbox. Should you have any questions or need support in the future don’t hesitate to send an email our customer support department! Here is the link with our contact info: https://www.kartamobile.com/support.php

  6. Hi Jake,

    As of Viira 5.2 you can backup your data to your SD card or dropbox folder. You can do that by going to Settings (swipe from top on the main Viira screen) and then going go Backup/Restore
