iMazing for Blackberry®
Handling your incoming eMails with just a swipe gesture
iMazing is for all BlackBerry® devices with OS 5.0 or higher (incl. OS7) [like 87xx, 88xx, 9000(Bold),
9500/9520(Storm), 96xx, 97xx(Bold2), 9530/9550(Strom2), 98xx(Torch) or 99xx and all new JAVA-BASED BlackBerry
smartphones that will be released in the future (no support for Devices running Blackberry10!)].
iMazing is a tool that will display you all incoming eMail messages and allow you to instantly process the
messages (save, preview, reply, mark as read or delete) either with a swipe gesture (touch devices) or via
the trackpad. iMazing supports up to three different actions that you can adjust to your likings (swipe left,
swipe right or double tap).
You can additionally preview the eMails instantly with a single touch. In this preview screen you have also
the option to instantly process the message with swipe left, swipe right or double tab (reply, mark as read,
With iMazing your are Getting Things Done (GTD)
- full stop. And of course the application is fully
customizable to your requirements - starting with the option where the the message list should be displayed
and ending with the configuration when an incoming email should be marked as read
(see manual section for details

Important to know
- iMazing is exclusively available via AppWorld™
- Even if the app is listed as free (in AppWorld), you need to buy (currently 1.99 USD)
a License (via In-App Purchase) in order to make use of the full functionality of iMazing (displaying
a unlimited number of eMail messages).
- The FREE Version of iMazing will display ONLY the latest eMail message.
- When you make use of the 'Mark prior as Read' (Opened) function of the native Message app, then
the OS does not generate any kind of notification :-( - this implies that iMazing does not
have any chance to detect that these messages should be removed. In this case it's unfortunately
required that you open the BlackBerry Menu (when the popup list will be displayed) and select
'Refresh List'. I am very sorry for this inconvenience - this is a OS issue that need to be
solved by RIM (an issue have been already generated).
- IMazing will display eMail & SMS messages ONLY (no other messages will be currently handled)
SMS-Support is limited - Why ?!
This is quite a common question - even if it's not a big deal to register for incoming SMS messages
and display them there is no way to actually process them further via the BlackBerry API (there are no
API's which provide access to an SMS once it has been received and stored on the device).
To be more concrete - it's (currently) not possible for a 3'rd party application to mark an SMS as
read - it's not possible via the API to delete an SMS from your inbox - these operations can only be
performed by the user manually (in the SMS-Inbox). Having in mind that the core concept of iMazing is to
process messages then the current SMS integration of course could only be considered as limited
functionality - since you just can preview, reply or remove from the iMazing popup list (have no effect
on your SMS inbox!).
- Looks like that the In-App Purchase option is not obvious
- Start the app and a popup will be displayed
- While that popup is displayed you can press the Blackberry Menu Button
- and there you find a 'Buy License'.
API-Limitations (you might like to know)
You might miss some essential functionality in iMazing - please read further why this functionality
might be missing:
- Open a eMail in the build in Message Application
I was quite surprised myself to realize that there is no way to open an existing message with
the default message application (to let you do from there what ever you want) - but at the end of
the day as 3'rd party app you only can open "new" messages (like via the build in reply to or
- Flag for Follow Up
Again a very useful functionality that unfortunately is not able to be used/set for a 3'rd party
developer. [Even if you can see these objects (net.rim.device.apps.internal.blackberryemail.flag.FollowUpFlagDataModel)
in the debugger - there is no way to set them - just tried to set Flag '512' - without any usable result
since the Model object can't be set.]
