Karta Mobile has announced the immediate availability of version 3.0 of its popular BlackBerry GTD software application Viira™. Designed for busy people who want to stay organized and get things done with their BlackBerry smartphone, Viira™ provides an easy-to-use yet powerful organizational system that makes staying on top of one’s to-dos, commitments, projects, communications and priorities a cinch.
Based on the principles of David Allen’s Getting Things Done® (GTD®) (great book, I recommend it), Viira empowers people to leverage the principles of GTD with a BlackBerry smartphone and helps them achieve an organized and productive life. Version 3.0 adds significant additions and enhancements to Viira’s feature set including an In-Basket for new or unassigned tasks, fast iterative search, task reminders, BlackBerry tasks integration and the option to quickly hide completed tasks, among many others. An In-Basket is a pivotal tool for the collection phase of GTD and enables the quick and effective gathering of all outstanding tasks and “loose ends” for their subsequent organization and classification.
The development team behind Viira has a long track record of pushing the limits of what is possible on a mobile device in order to bring the most comprehensive and intuitive portable solution for GTD on the BlackBerry platform. In addition to tasks, to-dos and reminders, Viira’s organizational system is the only one to incorporate appointments, events as well as email and SMS messages. The Viira product family is also the first to provide an integrated BlackBerry-Outlook solution for Getting Things Done. The Viira Outlook Suite is the first GTD Outlook software application to wirelessly synchronize Microsoft Outlook with a BlackBerry smartphone to provide one unified, accessible-from-anywhere organizational system for Getting Things Done.
