Sheet to Go blackberry software suit

Documents to Go is a suit of software which contains a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation and PDF viewer. You won’t be able the get these software unless you buy them. But on the bright side dataviz offers a free version of documents to go bundled in the Blackberry OS 4.5. The free version if you don’t already have them contains only Word to Go and Slide Show to Go. Bellow are some instructions on how to get Sheet to Go ( Spreadsheet ).

1. Upgrade your phones OS to 4.5 ( Ask advise from your provider regarding this or search your telco’s Blackberry website if upgrades are available for you)
2. The upgrade should install Documents to Go,now you need to upgrade it to get Sheet to Go.
3. Click on documents to Go and click on word to Go. Click on the menu key and look for the update option.
4. It will now force you to register, hey its still free software.
5. Lastly to avoid your Desktop Manager from reverting your upgrade to your old version of Documents to navigate to C:/program files/common files/research in motion/loader files//
6. Rename DocumentsToGo.alx to DocsToGo.old.
7. Thats it..

Beam Reader

The people from beamberry just developed a native PDF viewer for the Blackberry. Its currently in BETA stage but works really well and renders PDF pages nicely on my Curve. Its currently free unitil October 31, until they decide on the pricing. I’m hoping the people from Beamberry Solutions make a free version of Beam Reader making it a standard a native PDF viewer for the Blackberry.

download link: Beam Reader Beta ( Free until Oct 31 )

Update: Beamberry is no longer free, I’m currently looking for a free replacement.

Beamberry is a powerful document viewer that can open PDF files and office document files ( PDF, Word, PPT, XLS, RTF, ZIP ) . I love the fact that I can save email attachments and actually view them in my Blackberry even if I’m using my old BB 7290.

Update: Beamberry is no longer free, I’m currently looking for a free replacement.

    successful install on t-mobile blackberry 8100. Loads my buddy list. Haven’t talked to anyone yet but i’m sure its gonna work. Dials a phone number in MA. I’m already planning on spending all of my minutes on this thing. Great idea for doing around t-mobile’s overpriced snail web plan. i’m actually planning to keep the phone.

    Hi simple there any way just to view pdf files on my bb9300? I can only view word, excel and powerpoint right now..

  21. Steven Smith says:

    @Rocky the most simple way to view pdf is to email it yourself.
    1. Download pdf in your browser and save to memory card.
    2. Use file manager or file and look for that pdf and email it to your self.
    3. Wait for the email and open the pdf document. You should be able to view it.
    4. Why can’t you just open the pdf that you saved directly to your mem card, I’m not sure but RIM need to fix this problem and make it simple for everyone.

    Another alternative is to buy a premium version of a software called documents to go and use the pdf viewer that comes with the package. This is going to cost you money since its an premium version of docs to go.
