BigHand Dictation App Version 4 Comes With Attachment Features


YouTube link

BigHand for BlackBerry is a dictation app that is now in version 4, and includes several new features that are reminiscent of vPost. In version 4 of BigHand, you have the ability to take and attach photos from within the dictation app, append new documents and/or review finalized docs on-the-go, add advanced profile info and centrally configure via BES.

Features in BigHand 4 include:

  • Take and attach photos to dictations: allowing users to both take photos from within BigHand software and automatically attach them to the related voice file for submission.
  • Document attachments: attach any document or file type to BigHand dictations on a BlackBerry and submit them to the relevant workflow. Any file which can be browsed to can be attached. The files will also be accessible from the desktop client once sent.
  • Review finalised documents: authors can instantly access and review final documents, driven by the BigHand system, from their Smartphone without having to access their network via a laptop
  • Advanced profiling: add additional and customised profile information to dictations prior to submission. The profile data is then also accessible in the desktop client.
  • Full ‘Work in Progress’ visibility: view all your dictations, including those submitted from the desktop, on the BlackBerry instead of just those submitted from the device.
  • Full central configuration: all BlackBerry client settings will be configurable from the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, giving system administrators full control over device settings.

More information and download available at BigHand. This is enterprise software so you need to register with the company to pilot the app.

VPost by Vayyoo reviewed


vayyoo vpost tutorial

I was given the opportunity to try out vPost by Vayyoo Inc. My first thoughts of this app were, Why didn’t RIM include this with their current OS’s? Vayyoo did a good job of filling the need. vPost sends messages as Emails and not multimedia messages (mms), so if you are used to sending pictures, video’s or voice notes via mms you’ll have to get your recipients email or carrier mms email address. vPost is available for 4.5 and 4.6 OS Blackberries, with Storm support coming in March. Installation from the Blackberry Cool store was straight forward and went without a hitch. After the vPost install was completed I was asked to allow permissions for Phone and GPS so naturally, I did. I was greeted with a screen that displayed the End User License Agreement. After agreeing I was asked if I wanted to register my device with Vayyoo. This is where you have the option to enter your activation code or take advantage of the free trial. Vayyoo helped us users out by including an Introduction screen that gives a brief description and quick tips prior to using the program.

Free trial – Vayyoo reinvents email for BlackBerry


We’ve been talking a lot about Vayyoo for a few reasons: we love their product and we’ve been playing Settlers of Catan with their director of marketing on a pretty regular basis.

Here are some old articles about them that tells the story of the product’s progression.

Today Vayyoo has launched vPost to the public at a one-time purchase price of $9.95 with a free two-week trial.

vPost is an app that lets you capture and email any combination of Pictures, Video, Audio Notes, Text & GPS location using an extremely powerful and simple interface.

Once you capture any combination of media you can send it via email to friends, family, colleagues, blogs and social networks.
