iPhone App & Recurring Tasks Now Available

It seems like just yesterday (it was) that I was complaining about Apple taking its time to approve our App and because of this the WORK[etc] blog wasn’t updated for a few weeks.  Steve Jobs (obviously …) keeps an eye on our blog and literally an hour after posting, the app was approved and soon after available on the iTunes store.

To get the WORK[etc] iPhone App, visit the iTunes store or search for “WORK[etc]” in the App Store on your iPhone.

Our Android App has been powering along these last few weeks with a 4.5 star rating and 825 installs!  If you’re an Android owner, you’ll find it here.

Remember both apps are the first release.  We’ll be updating shortly to speed up the experience as well completing modules for sales leads and expenses.

Please Rate Us…

Once you have installed the iPhone or Android App, please take the time to rate WORK[etc] (5 stars of course!).  It is the best way of helping us get more exposure and ergo more customers.  Which we can then turn into more developers to release better updates, faster.  Awesome little ecosystem.

Recurring Tasks/ToDo’s

The other big announcement today is that Recurring Items are now live.  This means any ToDo, Event or other calendar item can be set to repeat, following a variety of patterns such as:

  • repeat the last Thursday of every month for the next 4 months; or
  • repeat every week until I say stop

Various Repeat Patterns

Where we make this even better is that any instance of a recurring group can be isolated and either cancelled or reassigned for that instance only – so the implementation ends up being crazy flexible.  Oh and it all syncs up nicely with Google Calendar.

Whats’ next?

Still so much to go on the road map.  Granular Permissions, Outlook Plugin, New Search Engine, Custom Views, Drip Marketing/Sales Workflows, Xero/Quickbooks Integration and this almighty User Experience update which includes about 200 or so tiny improvements.

So hit the Google Plusone above, stay subscribed and tell everyone about WORK[etc] so I can make it all happen faster.

See all

This Stormtrooper tactic is scattershot marketing […]
