A new mobile presentation tool is in town - BlackBerry Express gets released in beta

BlackBerry Express

It isn't every day we get a new application from BlackBerry themselves, so this one could be something special. BlackBerry Express for BlackBerry 10 is now available as a beta to download from BlackBerry World. Chances are it is only going to be of use to those of you that use your BlackBerry for business, or maybe students, as the app is a presentation tool designed for mobile users. 

Features include: 

CREATE & CUSTOMIZE 

  • Your presentation Ideas are organized into chapters, sections, bullet points and text. 
  • To keep your presentation concise and snappy, text is limited to 140 characters or less.
  • Not happy with the flow or look of your presentation? Easily edit/move an element or customize your theme.

PRACTICE & PRESENT 

  • On screen' timer helps you practice your pitch and keeps topics on track.
  • Present right on your BlackBerry 10 device or use an external screen to maximize the impact of your presentation.
  • Supports HDMI and wireless Miracast connections.

EXPORT & SHARE

  • With BlackBerry Express, export and share the content of your presentation as HTML.
  • Effortlessly share with others via e-mail, BBM and NFC.  
  • WORKS GREAT WITH…BBM Video with Screen Share to present to colleagues
  • Documents To Go to all present existing MS PowerPoint files

Having only just been released I can't comment on how the good - or bad it is. I will however give it a good test run and we'll bring you the results later in the week. Either way, it's nice to see BlackBerry working on native applications like this. Agreed?

It seems like blackberry are really trying to make things move recently. I'm definitely happy with this.

Yeah! With Miracast! Woop woop! :-D

Mmm...CB10! Just the tip, though!

arvind1983

No miracast for Z10 less than a 8 months old.

beantownwindsorite

I know. Pure BS. An expensive former flagship, less than a year old, can't support a function that the so called budget phone can.

Wow this is really impressive. Courtesy of BlackBerry Sweden aka TAT. Love it.

quizm

Good to see work on this kind of thing. But it has to be good. I would prefer a perfectly compatible ppt version. One that works in Office. Needs good interface with excel etc. No use working on a limited version.

flexja

Then make one. you seem to have the idea

camilo29

The app still a beta app. I like it much more than PowerPoint. It's simple, easy to use and innovative. Congrats BlackBerry crew

Posted from my zeta diez

iskaheen

DocsToGo supports PPT. PPT is very complex so you can download a complex PPT to BlackBerry and run it and edit it to a certain extent but it is a pain to create stuff - it allows a subset of PPT functionality capable of the desktop version. DocsToGo is crossplatform. I think you need a new tool. The fact that it limits components to 140 characters means they will probably go crossplatform and support SMS and twitter type stuff. If they keep adding templates and stuff - this could become a new presentation standard. My thoughts anyway.

Posted via CB10

wolf_clan

Been playing with this app a bit today and see loads of potential however, I too would like a fully compatible ppt version. Not because I think ppt is better, because this imho is much better eye candy and but.....I'm willing to bet that BlackBerry won't have a desktop client for this and I much rather create presentations from a laptop than a phone. My eyes need the real estate. :)

Gnomesane

Agreed, it instills confidence that BlackBerry isn't giving up on BlackBerry 10 which makes me happy. Keep 'em coming!

Great work, more focus on business, corporate, and professional apps and services are the things that will make BlackBerry special, keep moving.

I have never actually tried blackberries, but I won't be surprised if they taste the best

parthokarki

Yes if professionally helpfull apps are made and also the personal apps polished.

Our offices and friends circle will be filled with BlackBerry hansets once again. People are selling note 2 in my office for real cheap and buying q10 and z30.

Don't blame I just gave a little push.

A very cool app, I must say! I'm hopeful that PlayBook compatibility will be possible (if it isn't already. Just downloaded at work, haven't tried yet) so that I can run it off there and keep my phone on me to control the slides. But very cool at first glance, this will definitely see a lot of use out of me!

A good looking app! But I'm wondering why not release it through Beta Zone? Surely it's easier to monitor opinions and bugs, etc there than through BlackBerry World?

camilo29

The app itself has the option to submit ratings and comments in a very fun way

But why isn't this part Docs to Go? Unless MS wont license it this should be baked into Docs to Go not as a separate app.

Posted via CB10

OK tried it and it's slick. It is different and better than PowerPoint For a mobile device. Still should see PowerPoint creation support in Docs to Go though!

Fantastic... good to see blackberry do some cool business apps.

Personally I Could care less about instagram but this is can use. Just need to get a miracast projector and I'm good to go.

Anyone have any suggestions on projectors?

irwindersra

Get miracast on literally any type of display with a miracast dongle! Ebay has them for pretty cheap! I'm thinking of Android cx919 but that's for miracast as well as some android TV functionality just in case I want it.

bbfanboi

140 characters is too short! I love the idea but make it full featured. Stop thinking "mobile" (as in simplified) -- think bigger! I want desktop quality apps on my mobile device.
Future BlackBerry devices should have quad core CPUs, 4 GB of RAM and a minimum of 32 GB storage to encourage more sophisticated apps. There is a gap there that Apple and Android aren't filling. BlackBerry's BB10 has the power to take full advantage due to its scalability. Just do it!

camilo29

More than 140 characters Per slide is not profesional. If u need to read a whole page just simply print it

Agreed. Per slide ain't bad :) I'm playing with it now. Impressed!

This is definitely the way to go for BlackBerry. This is the niche the others have not exploited. The more enterprise the better. They should build the best enterprise apps store ever made and associate with Google for entertainment. Let the others do what they do best and let the BlackBerry focus in what they di best.

Made a presentation quickly and also played with the customization setting.

Very simply put everything. Easy to use and fast results.

unclebanglin

Looks cool but worthless without wireless presentation. I know miracast....but it's not on my z10 and even if you have a z30 miracast isn't a universally used protocol for the projectors that most people imagine hooking up to. We need app solutions to help out. We use Epson projectors and they have a wonky but usable wireless projection protocol called "easymp". My apple coworkers hook up to that no problem.

Posted via CB10

Dave Hong

For a beta, it's pretty good - need to figure out how to connect my device to my wireless projector...

I love the app, but I want to be able to put it onto my computer for later use. I know that I have to email it to myself, but when I click on it, it doesn't show up as a presentation. It just shows all the work at once. It's like reading a document. What can I do to fix this? Should I choose a different viewer? It's currently using Google Chrome.

I have just submitted my application 'ekkes Express Charts' to BlackBerry World. The app integrates with BlackBerry EXPRESS and enables you to create charts on-the-fly. first version with Bar Charts and Slider Charts - more types will follow soon.

steph.iosso

I think something that would be great to see in the next update to the app would be infinite looping. I want to be able to load up my presentation on an external monitor, say at a conference, and let it run. There should be timers, just like in powerpoint, and then the option to loop it at the end. This would be amazing!
