15 Jun

If your Dad is a BlackBerry user, then Father’s Day is just about the perfect time to show him how he can futher maximize the use of his smartphone and have fun with it at the same time. 

With a long list of free applications from BlackBerry App World (, ranging from business, utilities, and productivity, to entertainment, games, health and wellness, you can download applications depending on what Dad’s lifestyle and needs may be. With BlackBerry’s assistance, thank Dad for being more proud than angry all these years.

For starters, here are useful BlackBerry applications Dad might like:

Maybe they don’t get to say it that much, but many Dads would just love to be able to work at home, if only it means getting to spend time with their children more. Nice Office LITE is an application that can help them out perfectly. It turns his BlackBerry into a virtual mobile office, as it lets him manage email, calendar, contacts, and tasks, store forms and documents online and send them directly to customers, track sales and lead activity by workflows and status levels, among other business tasks.
