Pocket Express is a BlackBerry and iPhone mobile app that has received a lot of attention recently because of the great potential it has to make your days more productive. Productivity increase is really what a lot of BlackBerry users are after and that is why this particular software package definitely deserves a much closer look.

The Good

Pocket Express app for BlackBerry and iPhone is an excellent productivity software package because of the wide range of functions that it has. You can use Pocket Express BlackBerry and iPhone app as your source for information on travel, news, weather and sports while simultaneously gaining access to maps, games, multimedia and internet searching from its easy to understand interface that is also easy to use. It is an all around software package intended to combine all of the things that you might otherwise use multiple packages for and it does a very good job of accomplishing that particular goal.

Another thing to like about Pocket Express mobile app for BlackBerry and the iPhone is that it has the ability to work across a wide segment of the products that RIM offers. BlackBerry 7100 to BlackBerry 8830 will all definitely support Pocket Express and if you’re lucky you might even be able to get support for it on products outside that product line. With that kind of universal support in place for the BlackBerry products, you can definitely feel good about being able to get this particular software package on your phone.

The Bad

The main drawback to Pocket Express app for BlackBerry is that it does cost money to use. What is even worse is that rather than being a single purchase that you make, Pocket Express works on a subscription basis that will mean that you end up paying between $70 and $100 per year for the excellent service that you get.

This is obviously a far cry from the normal free software that we feature on this website, but this is in place for a reason. If you wanted to do everything with Pocket Express for free, you’d need about a dozen (or more) freeware packages that together wouldn’t even come close to representing the same amount of quality. If you’re willing to add between $7 and $10 to your bill per month, you can get all of that and more in one very easy to use software package.

Conclusion

Pocket Express app for BlackBerry loses some marks for costing money. However, it is easily the best piece of mobile application we’ve reviewed to date with that fact taken out of consideration. Therefore, our final score for Pocket Express BlackBerry app with all things considered is 8.5 out of 10.
