Download the New WORK[etc] Android App Now

After two months of thorough testing, we're proud to announce that the new and improved WORK[etc] app for Android is now out on Google Play. Read on for a brief rundown of the optimizations and improvements we've made during the course of the beta and check out a video preview of the app in action.

Roll out the red carpet — the new WORK[etc] Android app is officially out of beta and is now available on Google Play! The performance improvements and optimizations implemented by our dev team have made the app faster and more reliable, giving users a much smoother mobile crm experience.

Kudos to all the WORK[etc] Insiders who participated in the beta testing phase. Without your help, it would have taken us way longer to spot, squash, and fix the bugs and issues you reported.

A special shoutout goes to Mark Van Ree of AccsysIT for alerting us to an issue with the tasks module that was only happening on phones running the Android Lollipop OS. Lollipop was released while the app was still deep within the testing phase, so getting that issue cleared up prior to rollout was a big help.

It wasn’t just bugs, either. Thanks to our testers, our Android dev team was able to squeeze more juice out of the app in terms of performance, further optimize UI design and behaviors, and enhance the app’s workflows, among others.

Adam Litke of Lucreati also deserves some extra kudos. Thanks to his feedback, our dev team was able to further improve the activity and discussion streams for all entry types — from contacts and leads to projects and support tickets.

The official release version of the new app includes even more features: you can start and reply to discussions; assign, create, and reply to support tickets; capture pictures of invoices and receipts; quickly create a timesheet from any module; run timers in the background and update them through the Android notifications drop down screen; and a lot more.

Depending on your Google Play settings, all users who have already installed the old app (beta and non-beta testers alike) should have already received an update notification from Google Play (we actually made a stealth release at the end of last week!). If you haven’t installed the app yet, you can download it here.

What do you think of our new Android CRM app so far? Which features are you getting the most use out of right now? Sound off in the comments section below.
