Mini Review: Roboform for BlackBerry Beta Update

RoboformblackberryRoboform For BlackBerry
Cost: Free

We have talked about the public beta for Roboform for BlackBerry back in June. It looks like things are progressing well.

First and foremost, the OTA download is now a proper jad file, instead of linking to the cod. There is also the cod/alx combo for desktop install. The download is around 450K and install goes smooth. The original beta release would not work on my 8110 running 4.5 OS, but now it worked fine on

When you run the application, it simply looks like a file browser. Following the folders you browse to the folder where your Roboform data files are located:

Once you are in the folder with your files, you can click on a rfp (Roboform Passcard) or a rfn (Roboform Note) or a rft (Roboform Identity) and it will open it if the file is not encrypted. If the file is encrypted, it will ask your password (one gripe here, the password is shown as plain text, no masking it with *) and then display the contents.

In the example above, there were two form fields stored in my Roboform Passcard, username and password.

The current GUI is very limited, you can’t even copy a field (You can select a field, but it will not copy, it will just popup the field contents).

All in all, the application development seems to be in right direction. And if you are like me who rely on Roboform day to day, you’ll be happy to be able to access your passwords quickly.


  • Your Roboform data is with you on the go
  • Can open passcards, identities, notes
  • Free


  • GUI has lots to be desired, but can’t argue much, it still is beta
  • Can’t copy/paste
  • Can’t fill forms in browser

  1. I am so happy that this is out. I live by my roboform form my computer and have been waiting for this. 1 problem, when I open the program it makes me hit yes to “the application robofom has attempted to open locatl contect. Would you like to allow this?” it does this like 30 times even if i have the application permisions set to allow.

  2. I have the same with .5 and .7 versions.
    Have contacted roboform support 5 days ago, but no response as to a fix yet.

  3. Which OS version are you guys running? On, it asked me to set the Roboform application to trusted status, I selected yes and never had the above issue.

  4. I am using verizon OS

  5. Roboform is a great product that I use daily. But sadly, it appears attention to the Blackberry platform has ceased. I submitted a bug report almost a month ago and haven’t received a response (bug support system has been pretty quick in the past).

  6. Last I checked, they were at v. 0.8.9 (beginning of November). Now it shows 1.0. So they seem to be working on it. Don’t forget, it is a busy time of the year with people taking vacations.
