You never know when the time will come, but chances are it will happen. You might be on your way to a meeting. Maybe you’re just headed to your parents’ place. Just before you arrive, it’ll hit you: you forgot to put a file on your BlackBerry! If you’re lucky, it won’t be a huge deal. But maybe it is. Maybe it’s a presentation you spent hours on, and that everyone is expecting. Yes, that might overdramatize the issue, but it’s still valid. Plus, that’s just one of the many reasons you might want to access your desktop from your BlackBerry. That’s where RDM+ comes in handy. There’s not too much explaining with RDM+, since it really explains itself. With the combination of desktop and mobile software, it allows you access to your desktop, from wherever you happen to be. That means you can run applications, watch video, and do other things that you normally couldn’t from your BlackBerry. It also means you have access to files on your computer, which really can make life easier. The process is pretty simple. Head to RDM’s website to download the desktop software. It’s available for both Windows and Mac, so you’re completely set. Once you’ve downloaded and installed it, you then set up your account. This means creating a username and password, mostly. After you do that you’ll get a computer number, which you’ll need in the BlackBerry setup process. Then you can download the BlackBerry app. You can get the .zip file right from RDM’s website, or you can download the RDM+ free trial from the BBGeeks Store. Run that, and you’ll click the Computers icon. Enter in your computer number, plus the username and password, and you’ll be connected to your desktop. It’s a little slow to respond. That is, you might double click on a folder or program, but it won’t render instantly. But it’s not as though you’re trying to do serious desktop computing here. Again, this is for emergency or convenience situations, where you can access the files on your computer from your BlackBerry. Even better, you can click on the Files icon and gain the ability to simply browse. That’s a lot easier, and faster, than rendering your entire desktop. There are also a bunch of other goodies you can explore, including remote shutdown, logout, or reboot. Again, you can try RDM+ free for seven days. After that it costs $39.99. That’s a one-time fee. You can get RDM+ at the BBGeeks Store.
