    Edit replies and forwards on your BlackBerry

    I found this on Viigo. quote:

    You know what's annoying? Replying to an email and not being able to edit any of the quoted text. Ditto forwarding. Everything below that Original Message line is off limits, and it can be a pain. For instance, what if I want to forward someone an email, but want some information changed, edited, or deleted? I do that all the time on my computer, so why not my BlackBerry. As you might have guessed, there's an app that can take care of the issue. Via Adam Zeis at CrackBerry we learn of Forward, Reply and Edit, an application which, yes, lets you edit forward and reply text. It sounds like an application which everyone should have on their BlackBerrys.

    The integration is rather brilliant. In the desired message you click the trackball as normal, but instead of Reply or Forward, you click the Reply Edit or the Reply Forward option, which appears at the top of the menu. From there you can make the necessary edits, including spell checking, editing out sensitive information, or editing out whole strings of replies (useful in a blind copy).

    As Adam notes, there's no good reason why this isn't a standard feature. It's so basic, yet so notably absent from the BlackBerry software. Hopefully this application can spread, catching RIM's attention so it can become part of a future upgrade.

    The application is free, which is a plus. BBerryApp.com wants to spread its name, though, so there's a catch: you have to send a notification of the application to someone in your Address Book. That can be spammy for sure, but it's such a basic and useful app that your friend might thank you. You can download it OTA here.

    the application is excellent and much desired, however noticed just one issue. while you forward and edit, it would not carry any attachements which the previous email carried. Am sure this issue can be taken care off.

    The link sends me to a "whoops" page lol It's cool. Nice to have viigo on my phone again. I just hope it doesn't drain the battery on my 8900 like it used to on my poor 8310

    Here is the reply:

    Dear Richard,

    Unfortunately this is a limitation from Blackberry themselves and there is
    no way around it at this stage. As soon as they allow us to access
    attachments we will do an upgrade to include it.

    Best Regards
