Chris from Karta Mobile Inc. let us know about Viira’s latest update which compliments the intuitiveness of OS 7 and takes advantage of the recent advances with the latest devices. Viira is an app based upon the Getting Things Done book and system by David Allen. So what’s Viira and what’s new?
Viira has several features and is a comprehensive GTD application for your BlackBerry. It’s there to help you stay organized and productive stress-free. “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” is a best-selling time management book by David Allen.
The new features include:
- Touch Screen Interface. If you have a touch screen device like a BlackBerry Bold 9900, a BlackBerry Torch or BlackBerry Storm you will see a command panel with touchscreen buttons that contain the most frequently used actions in Viira. You can now create, edit, delete and mark tasks as completed with just a tap on the screen.
- Quick Add: Add New Tasks Quickly. Perfect for the times where you have a number of new tasks or ideas to record, the quick add field enables you to enter them one after the other in quick succession. Just type in the tasks name and press ENTER, then repeat as needed!
- Starred Projects and Contexts. Mark your important or frequently used project or contexts with a star. Starred projects and contexts always appear at the top of the list making it easier to navigate or select them.
- Compact Mode. Fit more of your Viira data on your BlackBerry’s screen. Particularly useful for owners of touch screen models like the BlackBerry 9900 or the BlackBerry Torch series, turning on compact mode lets you see more of your tasks for any project, context or day. You can turn on Compact Mode by going to Settings->General Settings->Compact Mode.
