San Diego, California – BlackBerry to iPhone switchers can now transfer contacts, calendars, text messages, email messages, etc. more stably with the latest update for BerryMover, an iPhone app. The 1.2 update adds support for Mac users’ data and improves the support for SMS messages.
The need for this app seems huge. In a United Sample survey last year, over 66% of Verizon-based BlackBerry users said they would switch to an iPhone when it became available. Therefore, the numbers are staggering.
“BerryMover transfers contacts from BlackBerry to iPhone,” Tim Goggin, Co-Owner Of PocketMac said. “Until this app, if you owned a RIM smartphone, you were stuck. But now, all you need is a recent BlackBerry backup, iTunes and BerryMover. And you’re all set to transfer all your data.”
BerryMover works by reading backup files. It then gives the user the option of choosing which data they want to import.
Goggin added, “Our 7 years working with the BlackBerry gives us the know-how to import this data and work with backup files. In fact, for many years, Research In Motion licensed our Mac-BlackBerry sync software.”
Every copy of BerryMover comes with a complete video tutorial on how to import BlackBerry data to your iPhone. The app also includes the ability to import data from more than one backup file.
“BlackBerry customers ask us every day how they can get data from their old device to their new iPhone,” Goggin concluded. “It’s holding them back and costing them money. Some customers have told us they have that one crucial text message or those dozen emails they need salvaged.”
BerryMover will import all of the following data:
* Text Messages
* Email Messages
Goggin concluded, “BerryMover makes the switch from BlackBerry to iPhone painless. Now switchers can transfer all their data over.”
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 0.3 MB
