A major update of Projectplace for iPhone (Beta) has been approved by AppStore. This is the first update since the launch in May 2009, and it includes several major improvements for the users.
The main addition is the new social functions, aiming to increase team collaboration in projects. Every user has a personal guestbook/wall where project members can add comments. Via a chat you can also send private messages to team members. Another social feature is the “chatter” where you can write messages and listen in on your project colleagues, a project wall for the project team.
The application will notify you with a ping for project events, when something is assigned to you, when someone writes in your guestbook or sends you a message. You can also follow a document to get notifications about changes or comments. All notifications are shown in a list with a history of older actions.
- We have two main goals with this release, says Peter Strömberg, Manager of Projectplace Labs. Firstly it’s an experiment trying to find out how social interaction should be supported on a phone. Secondly we wanted to leverage the experience from the previous version of the application to help people on the go to manage their project commitments even better.
The application also allows you to answer meeting requests on the run, update issue statues as well as read and review documents. Through the contact list it’s easy to keep in contact with colleagues by writing on their walls, sending them a private message, giving them a call, sending them an SMS or an e-mail.
Projectplace for iPhone (Beta) is completely free for all Projectplace users and is released in English only. The application is available for users on all of Projectplace markets.
Being a beta, some features might be modified or taken away throughout further development. User feedback will continue to guide the future development of the application.
