• RIM Shares Some Real World Tips To Stay Organized & Productive With BlackBerry Apps



    With college seniors graduating and entering the "real world" this summer, it's important to stay organized and efficient this time of year. In a recent study conducted by Research In Motion targeting the youth market (ages 18-24), 80 percent of respondents said they use their mobile phone to keep track of day-to-day life. Ninety-two (92) percent agreed that a smartphone would keep them organized in 2012.

    Smartphones allow youth to stay on track in a variety of ways: Sixty-seven (67) percent use calendars and scheduling apps to keep them on deadline, 62 percent count on GPS tools to help navigate while travelling, and 53 percent rely on social media and instant messaging to connect with friends when arranging get-togethers.

    As the data demonstrates, youth are heavily relying on smartphones to stay organized. Here are a few tips on how to stay productive, particularly upon entering the post-college life:

    On Day 1 of that New Job/Internship - Transitioning to the real world can at times be tough, but BlackBerry makes it easier. With the BlackBerry Calendar, you can keep calls, meetings and events all in one place. It syncs seamlessly with BlackBerry contacts and email, so you’ll never miss a beat. When taking notes in a meeting or editing on the fly, use Docs to Go on BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry PlayBook. Looking for that perfect job opportunity? Use LinkedIn for BlackBerry to connect with those in your desired field and boost your professional network.

    During a Weekend Getaway - Post-college life means no homework on weekends, making it easier to take those vacations you’ve been dreaming of the last four years! BlackBerry Travel allows you to plan and manage travel activities. The app puts all travel updates in one place, and if there are any changes to a train/plane/bus reservation, the app notifies users immediately. On a road trip? BlackBerry Traffic, with hands-free turn-by-turn directions, gives you your ETA, as well as the most efficient travel routes based on traffic conditions. If looking for an impromptu meal while on the road, check out the BBM-connected app Poynt, which finds businesses, restaurants, movies, people and even gas based on location.

    To Keep in Touch - With your college friends spread out across the country, it's important to find ways to connect. With BBM and Facebook and Twitter for BlackBerry, you can stay in touch with your buddies anytime, anywhere. To spice it up, try video chat for the BlackBerry PlayBook to talk to friends face-to-face.

    The survey, which polled 1,004 randomly selected 18-24 year old Americans, was conducted by Vision Critical on behalf of Research In Motion.
