The iPhone may have the corner on the apps market, but the good old BlackBerry is still the go-to smartphone for many people in business.

And there are few times when one’s smartphone comes in more handy than on the road.

When you’re travelling for business, your smartphone serves as much more than just a phone — it’s your personal organiser, your source for e-mail, and your access to the internet and your business contacts, all in one.

That’s why it’s good news that Research in Motion is finally stepping up with a major overhaul to its BlackBerry App World.

A few of the improvements: users will be able to pay for apps through carrier billing, and the store will be much easier to search.

Time to take advantage of this update! Check out a few apps in the App World that have been designed specifically with business travellers in mind.
