Dear Berry

Hello again dear readers. It's time once again to open up the mailbag and clear up any BlackBerry woes you may have. This week's question comes from one of our Twitter followers, Scott, who asked:

How do I save an attached photo (not bridged, but native Gmail) on PlayBook? Doesn't offer save/cut/copy…Holding a finger is NOT coming up with choices when it's attached. I can open but not save.

Thanks

Dear Scott,

When I first downloaded the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 and started using the native messaging application I noticed the same thing as you. To answer your question, there is a way to save images that are attached and it's a simple solution that will have you downloading them in no time. Now I'm going to show you how to save images that are displayed in emails and those that are attached to make sure all your bases are covered for supported file types (BMP, JPG, GIF, and PNG). Keep reading for step-by-step instructions!

Dear Berry: How do I save attached email images while bridged on the BlackBerry PlayBook?

Dear Berry

Hello again readers! Dear Berry here to once again to open up the mailbag and clear up any BlackBerry woes you may have. This week's question comes from Patrick who asks:

I have the playbook and noticed that there is no option to save the images that you open in an email. There are no screen options or drop down menu options at all. Am I missing something because I am pretty sure you can save an image that you get in an email on your phone?

Thanks

In subsequent emails he goes on to say that he is attempting to save attached images while his device is bridged. Keep reading for my response!

Setting up and using Print To Go for the BlackBerry PlayBook

Since upgrading to the new PlayBook OS 2.0, one of my new favorite features has to be Print To Go.  Previously previewed at CES 2012, Print To Go is a new feature in OS 2.0 that allows you to print your documents to your PlayBook instead of a traditional printer.

This convenient utility app converts your files into an encrypted PDF and wirelessly delivers them to your tablet via a secure wireless connection. With all the boarding passes, receipts, train tickets, and other paper I accumulate this is a great way to organize of my files without killing trees in the process. Click on the jump to learn more.
