Mobile Update & Other Stuff We’re Working On

Mobile Update

Possibly by the end of next week we’ll be making available the first mobile beta – it will be generic mobile web interface and include contacts, calendar, timesheets and ToDo’s.  As a reminder, this is our build strategy:

  • Release the first 4 modules in beta as mobile optimized CSS.  This means that whatever flavor phone you have, be it iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows 7 mobile you will be able to efficiently use WORK[etc] on your mobile.
  • Whilst the first 4 modules are in beta, we’ll be developing the remaining 4 modules plus settings.
  • Once the entire mobile CSS version is in beta, we’ll be building native iOS and native Android apps through to beta release
  • As android/iOS is in beta, we’ll then double back and build  the mobile CSS version through to release
  • And then finish by pushing the native apps through to release.  We may then start work on a Blackberry native app – just not sure yet – depends on demand.

Here are some developing screen shots:

WORK[etc] Mobile CSS ...coming soon

Over the next 2 weeks:

  1. The first WORK[etc] mobile beta will be available to anyone game enough to try it out
  2. Recurring Tasks and Support Case Reminders will both be released
  3. Integration with Evernote will be launched into beta
  4. We’ll be starting work on Google Docs integration
  5. I’ll be writing Part II of our planned update to Sales & CRM

Sunrise over Bondi Beach @ 6:48am, 7:15am, 7:43am

WORK[etc] is very much a Micro Multinational – our customers, partners and staff all work remotely, all over the world.

And although we do have a North American focus with Geoff and Kevin residing in LA and Chicago respectively and maybe 80% of our customers in the States, I do spend most of my year in Sydney and specifically next to Bondi Beach.

This is how Bondi woke up today:

6:48am, 7:15am & 7:43am ...

Lots to do…

See all

Still Using Spreadsheets? Here’s Why It’s Time to Graduate to a CRM
