Keep New Years Resolutions with Help from your BlackBerry Smartphone

With 2010 just around the corner, it’s time to write up a list of resolutions for the New Year, and your BlackBerry® smartphone can help you keep them.

If you’re like most people, your resolutions may be to kick off January 1, 2010 by better managing your time, keeping your finances in order, or losing weight and getting into shape. Luckily enough, you’ve got numerous apps available to you to do just that via BlackBerry App World™. With the right tools, you can keep your resolutions past just the first week of January and follow them throughout the year.

But before you start downloading apps, don’t forget to make the best use of the features already available on your BlackBerry smartphone! According to Fiona Forrest, an Executive Coach at, many BlackBerry users can benefit from fully utilizing their Calendar features, the Task list and Voice Notes.

“All these apps are sitting right there on their BlackBerry smartphone, and people haven’t gone in there and played with them,” she said. “Really maxing out the ones that come with the system is the place I would recommend where people start. If you want to spend more time with your family, or working out, then put it in your Calendar.”

“What the BlackBerry smartphone allows you to do is schedule things more efficiently,” she said. ”It’s the idea of making a commitment to yourself, no matter what those resolutions are, and to schedule it.”

Forrest also recommends that the very first resolution many BlackBerry users can benefit from is to “have a free day to plan to do all this stuff.”

Once you’ve fully explored the plethora of features already available on your smartphone, if you’re still looking for extra help in keeping your resolutions, BlackBerry App World has the tools you need to track your productivity, manage your finances and more.
