SignEasy is one of the best productivity apps available on mobile. It makes signing documents a breeze and even though it’s an Android port, the app works great on BlackBerry 10. Recently, the app has had some major updates including:
- Ability to prefill forms
- Automatic backup of important documents
- Ability to sign in using another device in an emergency situation
- Sign offline even while not connected to the internet
If you’re a BlackBerry 10 user, the company has said “We are going to look at the response that we get from BlackBerry 10 users before we decide to update the app.” So make sure to Tweet at the company and let them know in the comments on their site. Surely they’ll be able to update the Android port on BlackBerry 10 quite easily.
Sensassure is an early stage startup that has a really cool product with big implications. The product is a connected diaper with a sensor that tracks whether incontinent seniors have soiled themselves. Sure, it’s a bit of a gross problem to tackle, but it’s a problem that’s becoming increasingly important as the North American population ages.
Did you know that BBM offers you the ability to save the history of your chats with other BBM contacts?
By default, this feature isn’t turned on, but flip a switch within your BBM settings and you can view previously sent and received BBM messages with all of your BBM contacts.
For example, if you don’t have BBM Chat History enabled, your message is removed from your device when you end a chat. If you enable Save Chat History, when you close and re-open a BBM chat with a contact, a history of your conversation appears—just scroll up to review.
I use this feature so I always have the ability to go back and reference something a contact sent me in the past, or whenever I want to put a smile on my face by reviewing love notes I’ve sent back and forth with my wife. Call me cheesy, I don’t care!
Use the following the steps for your device to turn on BBM Chat History. I’ve also included steps on how you can copy a conversation and share it via email, or copy it to another application on your device so you can always look back on your chats
How to turn on BBM Chat History
BBM for BlackBerry 10
BBM for Android and iPhone
BBM for Windows Phone
Note: BBM for BlackBerry 10, Android, iPhone and Windows Phone can show up to 10,000 message for each contact.
BlackBerry Messenger for BlackBerry OS
If you use BlackBerry Messenger on a BlackBerry OS device, you can scroll up and view previously sent and received messages in addition to saving your BBM Chat History within your device storage.
To view the Chat History that was saved to your device memory, connect your BlackBerry OS device to a computer that has BlackBerry Desktop Software installed and navigate to /home/user/im/BlackBerry Messenger//history/
Copy or email your BBM chat history
In addition to BBM Chat history, you also have the option of copying and emailing your chat history. While viewing a conversation, press and select Copy Chat or Email Chat. If you are using BBM for BlackBerry OS, press followed by Copy Chat or Email Chat and finally, for those using BBM for Windows Phone, tap instead followed by tapping copy chat or email chat.
Bonus—BBM Group Chat History options
By default BBM Group Chat History is retained for 1 day but you can optionally extend this to a few days, weeks, or forever.
To do this using BBM for BlackBerry 10, Android or iPhone, open a BBM Group chat , tap followed by Chat History. Within this screen, select the length of time you’d like to keep messages for: 1 day, 2 days, 3 days, 1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks, 1 month, or forever.
