Our Berry Extract application ports SMS backup files from a Blackberry to a PC where conversations are easily searched and read as cohesive stories. The application has proven to be very popular, especially within the legal community where SMS communications can be entered as powerful evidence for or against an accused.

Sometimes easy-to-use and single-purpose create the most powerful results.
