Messages play an important role in my day to day communications. Whether it be replying to a friend or colleague's email or text, or answering a simple client inquiry there are some situations where it is important to retain these conversations. I, for one, am a firm believer in always keeping a backup, especially when switching devices or reloading the OS. In those cases when I'm not near a computer to sync with BlackBerry Link, there's nothing wrong with using a third party application to store the information for you without cables.
While this only works for non-HTML emails (no attachment support at this time) and text messages, this handy application allows for complete conversations to be saved as text files on your device or SD Card. For those who have tried forwarding a text message on BlackBerry 10, it only sends the last conversation sent or received. Exporter allows you to save the thread itself. Not only apply to text messages but for emails and PIN messages as well. All are sorted by contact or sender name in easy to read text formats that are editable in Documents to Go.
In addition to the export as text capability, you can pick and choose conversations in a range or select specific lines of text to copy to share using the available methods that populate the list such as BBM, email, social accounts, or the Remember application. This applies to emails as well it groups them together based on specific conversations. These are indicated by the number shown to the right of the sender.
As I said earlier, media files attached to emails and MMS are unsupported, however, the developer is aware of this. Bug and feature requests are viewable directly from within the application which is actually a great way to for customers to track them and know they are being worked on. Submitting a feature request or contacting them is possible through the help menu. Media support for MMS is currently on the bug list. Also, for new messages to appear within the application you do have to exit and reload for it to capture them.
It's native, Built for BlackBerry so you know it met the criteria, offers a pleasant and smooth interface, and provides a useful function right at your fingertips. Exporter is only $1.99 and supports all BlackBerry 10 devices.
