Since then a lot of new things have been happening around Podio, such as the company going on a world tour as well as launching a fleet of new initiatives to improve the platform. And now, Podio has just released some interesting mobile news!
Be productive on the go
Co-founder of Podio, Jon Froda, tells us that Podio has launched a new iPhone application, which makes it possible for everyone to build their own mobile work apps to get their work done in a more collaborative way.
With the new Podio iPhone app you can create app items on Podio while on the go or on your way to the office. As the video below very well demonstrates, the app connects people sitting at the office with co-workers situated at another place in the world. It collects all your tasks, contacts, streams etc. on your iPhone, so that you can always be updated on what your co-workers are doing and sharing with you.
As it says on Podio’s blog, users have built or modified more than 200,000 work apps since they launched in March, and all of these apps are available on the iPhone in order to support mobile productivity. Further, it should be easy for everyone to build an app, no technical skills needed. This also creates a good possibility for users to adapt the platform to their needs, and develop specific apps that are appropriate for the ones always on the move in order to optimize work processes.
List of what you can do
To gain a more specific overview, here’s a list of the possibilities that the new app provides you:
- Customize your Podio mobile home-screen with all your favorite apps and spaces
- Create and edit app items from your iPhone for everyone to work on
- Put photos and videos directly into your app items
- Quickly find what you’re working on with the help of app filter. For example, use app filters to only see projects that are overdue
Personally, I think it’s an interesting step by Podio. The fact that it’s so easy to share task or any information like research, makes it easy to work on collaborative projects. Therefore, working with Podio’s app on the go can be a time-saver for any business with a need to be more efficient. I could imagine that this is something Podio users have been looking for!
