Initially I was a bit disappointed that when inputting teacher information, they weren’t saved to your address book (or imported from it), or that classes weren’t synced up to to the BlackBerry Calendar, but StudentBerry works really well on its own. For example, you can e-mail and call profs right from the menu when selecting a class. Task reminders pop up just like the built-in BlackBerry tasks, only opening it brings you to StudentBerry instead. Outside of that, StudentBerry doesn’t integrate that much with existing BlackBerry apps, but it really doesn’t need to.
One of the key features of StudentBerry is how it sets up multi-task projects. For example, if you have a final paper that consists of multiple steps before completion, you can break it up into primary reading, research, group meetings, rough draft, revision and final draft without a problem. A handy progress bar appears next to each of these projects showing you just how far along the list of tasks you’ve come.
