We're happy to finally announce our new iPhone app for CreativePro Office! Now you can track your time and tasks while away from the office. We know you've waited a long time for this release and we appreciate your patience.
Currently, our iPhone app includes time tracking and task management. You can track time against any of your current projects and tasks. The timer can run in the background so you don't need to have the app in the foreground to track your time.
The task manager allows you to see all of your current, upcoming, and overdue tasks. You can mark tasks as complete and add new tasks as well.
Download the app and kick the tires for a bit. We're looking for feedback on how well it works and what features should be added in the future.
Yes, lots. Our rough roadmap for additional mobile features looks like this...
Yes, we're actually in the early stages of development. I won't give a release date yet but we do hope to have something available for the iPad before the end of 2012.
Eventually...we would like to get an iPad version out the door first. Tentatively look for something early in 2013.
We've been promising a mobile app for a little over a year. The main problem has been finding a development platform that we felt worked well. Last year there were many emerging mobile technologies that promised the ability to build native apps for both iOS and Android with one codebase instead of buiding separate apps for each platform.
The very first thing we did was build a mobile web version of CPO with a product called Sencha Touch that you could access through the phone browser. We just weren't happy with the results - it was slow and the code was cumbersome...so we kept looking.
