• BlackBerry Content Transfer App Available In BlackBerry World

    If you were worried that you'd need to manually move over all your content from your BlackBerry 10 device to your brand new BlackBerry PRIV, you can relax knowing that the process will be hopefully be stress-free. After sharing a screenshot of the BlackBerry Content Transfer app earlier this week, we can now confirm that the application is available in BlackBerry World.

    You can use the Content Transfer for BlackBerry app to switch to your new PRIV by BlackBerry. The Content Transfer app moves data that is saved in the storage space on your BlackBerry 10 (10.2.1 and later) device. Data that is associated with a web-based account, such as contacts and calendar events, is transferred when you add the account to your new device.

    Data that is saved to a media card is transferred when you insert the media card into your new device. Your data can be transferred with password-protected encryption using Google Drive, your media card, or a private Wi-Fi network.

    Content Transfer moves the following data from your BlackBerry 10 device:
    • Contacts
    • Calendar
    • Pictures
    • Videos
    • Music
    • Text messages (SMS)
    • Notes
    • Tasks
    • Documents
    • Email accounts
    As you can expect, this app isn't of much use until you have your PRIV in hand. You'll be able to restore your data on your PRIV by using the matching name app on your Android-powered BlackBerry, and let's hope its installed by default!
