Review: Rove Mobile Viewer & Screenshots for BlackBerry

Review: Rove Mobile Viewer for BlackBerry
[rating:8] 8/10
Cost: Free

I last reviewed Rove’s Mobile Admin 4.0, now I am on to one of the two free utilities they offer called Rove Mobile Viewer for BlackBerry. Mobile Viewer is a utility that allow as you to project your BlackBerry screen on to a bigger screen i.e. your PC. Even go full screen. From there you can connect an LCD projector to your PC and WHAM !!! Instant presentation !! This is just a “must have” for anyone who is involved with BlackBerry in a corporate environment. Giving presentations and demonstrations is just a daily part of life.



Pretty cool ? Well it gets better !! Not only can you use this for presentations an demonstrations but you can use it for support. If you would like to walk a user through something, just have them remote control into your PC and actually show them how to do something. Sweeeeeet. Saves me tons of time. Even better ? You can use the utility to take screen shots for documentation and even record a session to create training videos. The videos are saved in .avi format so you can easily post it to a web site or even watch it on the BlackBerry itself.




This is just a great tool. The only small complaint I have is that the BB screen on the PC is a bit fuzzy and there is a slight delay. But that is do to the resolution of the BB vs the PC, nothing you can really do. It makes my life easier. The fact that it is a free tool is just awesome ! I would have paid for it, but don’t tell Rove ;-).
