Watch Out: New Mobile Apps Launching

New 100% native mobile apps for Android and iPhone are now available to download.  This is a free upgrade for all existing WORK[etc] customers.

UPDATE Nov 7: Both iPhone and Android mobile apps are now live.  Sales leads will be added to Android by November 14 (already available on iPhone).  Both apps will also be updated at the same time to allow for “keep me logged in” and “remember my details”.

As soon as Apple and Google give us the attention we deserve and approve our
new apps, v2.0 of the WORK[etc] mobile experience will be pounding down the
radio waves to your Android or iOS device.

Here is what we’ve done in the new versions:

★ brand new interface
★ local caching for massive speed improvement
★ 100% native interface for zippy user-experience
★ expanded activity stream
★ addition of Sales Lead module (Sales leads for Android will be ~ 1 week after release)
★ optimized for larger screens iOS6 and iPhone 5

The update is so profound that calling it a new version isn’t really fair. With more than 90% of the code being rewritten it pretty much is an entirely new product.

Going forward, mobile and tablets are going to become a bigger focus for WORK[etc].  Over the next few months we’ll be adding an expenses module into both apps as well as our usual commitment to continuous improvement.

Daniel Barnett [2012-11-07]As soon as both apps are released in their respective marketplaces, we’ll be
pushing out an email alert.

We would love a Google Plus One below… helps keep
the team

innovating…!

Every Minute Counts: 3 Ways Time Tracking Helps Your Bottom Line

Five minutes. That’s how long I spend on my email inbox at the start of my day, every day. I used to get easily distracted, sometimes spending upwards of half an hour just going through my email. And by “going through” I do mean just reading them. No replying, no creating tasks. It was a […]

Don’t Use a Driver When You’re in a Sand Trap: Boosting Growth with Automated Tags

Small business marketing is a bit like golf. You don’t use a driver for every single stroke. Yeah, you might luck out and get a hole in one, but it’s more likely you’ll end up spending way too much effort for too little return. What matters is that you identify exactly which club best fits […]

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

One of the most mind-blowing conversations I’ve ever had was with a potential client whose support team used spreadsheets to track everything. They had one guy list down every support ticket and conversation he had during the day, and then another person would add those daily lists to one big spreadsheet. That left me speechless […]
