We learned early on BlackBerry would also be revamping their desktop syncing software and replacing BlackBerry Desktop Software. The new app called BlackBerry Link comes with a revamped UI and is meant to be more user friendly than the aging BlackBerry Desktop Software solution, as well it was built to offer some additional features like remote desktop.
When it arrived folks were quick to notice it lacking some of the more advanced options that were previously offered. Advanced options that made the experience a whole lot better and for some, were essential to their usage of BlackBerry smartphones. BlackBerry Desktop Software was by no means perfect. It was horrendously slow at times and was often hit or miss on just what exactly it was doing but it had things people liked and used all the time.
To its credit, BlackBerry has updated BlackBerry Link several times now, current version 184.108.40.206 and has promised that a lot of the missing features will return. Number one on that list is the USB sync with Outlook for contacts and calendar appointments, which has caused a lot of folks some grief with it currently being missing. Still, like BlackBerry Desktop Software, it’s often times slow and makes you wonder if it’s doing what it’s actually saying it’s doing. While I have no real problems with it I still tend to use Explorer to transfer files, while Link is open.
