SmartBDocs, create new Office documents on your BlackBerry with ease - 100 free copies to give away!

By Michael Hepples on 15 Jul 2010 09:18 am EDT

Most BlackBerry users have the Docs2Go suite installed on their devices, and many of us use it on a regular basis to handle files in an Office format. One huge limitation of that particular softwarek, however, is the fact that the free version included does not allow you to create new documents. Paying for the premium version can be tough to swallow if all you want to do is add the ability to create a blank Word document, and wiuth the addition of this app, you no longer have to. Extremely simple to use, simply launch the app, click the button for the document you wish to create, and name the file. A new document is saved to your media card, which you can then open and edit with Docs2Go. SmartBDocs is the perfect companion to that software, and costs a fraction of the upgrade fee you would pay otherwise. Available in the CB store for only $.99, you will be hard pressed to find a reason NOT to get this.

SmartBDocs, create new Office documents on your BlackBerry with ease - 100 free copies to give away!



I LOVE MY BLACKBERRY, coming from a windows mobile and android platform for years. But to be honest I was shocked with the blackberry doing everything else that it could not create office documents. WOW and I would have to pay for this.

Winning this would be amazing. What an amazing site also....Im always lookin on here.


I use Docs2Go and it would be great to be able to create and not just read/edit. Would love to have SmartBDocs on my 9700.

Oh I so need this. I write weekly reports on the go so a lot of them I compose on my blackberry. Currently I have just a week left of the Documents to Go trial, but I can't dish out the cash to get the full paid version. Please give me a copy, I'm greatly in need!

Como no me alcanza para la version deo doc to go, espero poder ganarme esta licencia... vamosssss suerte a todos!!!!!!!

Just create some blank new docs on your SDcard saved as "new.doc" etc. Then when you need a new doc, just open the new blank doc and then save it with some other name. Probably less button clicks to do it this way than pay a dollar to have this app.

I will probably end up buying this anyway, but I thought I would take my chances at winning.

Posted from my Crackberry that badly would like this app.


it would be cool if the app also integrates into the Doc2Go context menu.

would love me a free copy pls

This app is really cool and useful for me because i work on the road and i could use a app that i can use to make my work eaasier.

It's applications like this that make BlackBerry owners proud! I look forward to trying this out.

I wanna right word docs

and make neato excel thingies

ooh yes, perfect for working on my college homework as i'm never actually home!

Save your 99 cents. Here's how to get the ability to create NEW docs within Docs to Go. Simply go into Word, Excel and PowerPoint and create a BLANK document (name it BLANK for simplicity). Save that file on your Blackberry. Then OPEN that file in Docs to Go and edit away. Save it off under a different file name. SIMPLE and FREE! I suspect this is all the 99 cent app is doing for you.

Perfect little Appy - To make us all Happy - Leaves all the other Crappy - Want to take a Nappy !

I was just complaining about not wanting to purchase the premium version of docs2go! Great app, hope I get it for free!!!

I've always used Docs to Go but have struggled with upgrades. It would be so nice to have something compatible on my other devices / phones that I don't have to sink >$50 for....

As much as I travel on business this is PERFECT for times I don't feel like taking out my laptop or netbook (varies on which I will have with me at the time). PICK ME!!

I'm on the road 300+ days a year. This would be great for managing expenses and just keeping track of everything!

What a great app:) I could certainly use this as I was contemplating buying the premium version of Docs2Go, but with this app why should I? I can take the savings and take my daughter out for dinner and ice cream:)

This would be a great app to win as I use Docs2Go for work all the time! THis would be a great way to be able to add some more functionality to this program!!! Would love to have this one!

I would love to have this. Can I have one please CB? No more waiting for working in the morning to deal with emerging issues...unless I need a break that is. :-)

I wouldn't mind having this. Many times I wished I had documents2go but don't want to shell out the cash.

Thats what I`v been waiting for.....real prise...haheha...
Let the games begin,free the lionS!!!

Sounds a lot easier than the manual workarounds so yeah I could use a copy.

from my BlackBerry Storm...

making documents on the go will be really helpful for my college, i'm the type of people who do their work the last minute and this would make me win more time XD

The freeware is good but getting this version is even better!! I'd like to have one cuz i definitely need one..being on the go all the time.

I really really really need this and as a teacher it helps so much and with teacher's pay i cant afford paying for it lol so please let me get one : )

I love my blackberry to death. And during this time where I am searching for work it comes in handling for emails, appointments and contacts. The only thing missing is the ability to write documents and create excel files which I wold use greatly for the purpose of keeping track of my finances and updating and create resumes and cover letters on the go. Please let me win this app!!!

This would be great to have. I just recently have access to a lot of my work files on my blackberry. This would be a great way to work on the go!

Currently I work full time, go to school full time and am a wife and a mother of two young boys. To be able to have the functionality to create documents on my phone would give me more time for my family and myself. Would love to win this!

This would be great to win it, docs2go its great but expensive for me it would be nice to win one, usefull as
