We just updated the Upvise client for Google Android / T-Mobile G1 Phone:
- list items and toolbar back and action buttons are now bigger, to make it easier to navigate with the finger
- the left / right trackball action is now disabled by default. Because of the sensibility of the trackball, it interfered with the up / down movements. You can enable it again in the Settings > Display > Enable Left / Right Keys
- the send mail and send SMS actions now start the Google GMail client
- when editing multiline notes, the cursor is now positionned at the top the edit box instead of the center in the previous version
To update the Upvise client on the G1 phone, simply start the Android market icon and search for Upvise.
To respond to overwhelming demand, contact lists are finally sorted in alphabetical order on your mobile. Alpha sorting applies to most lists, except notes which are ordered by creation date, and tasks which are ordered by due date.
Setting the due date for a task has become really simple. On your mobile, when you create a task, the default due date is set to Tomorrow. When you click on the due date field, you can change the date to Tomorrow, This week (sets the date in 6 days time), Next month (in one month’s time), or else set a custom date. On the web, you can also snooze due dates easily by clicking on the Tomorrow, This week or Next Month links.
There is also a new edit screen for custom dates, which makes an intuitive use of the up/down/left/right navigation keys.
Finally, in Projects and Tasks, you can now add multiple contact and companies. Previously you were limited to only one contact. You can now also add multiple notes to Projects, Contacts and Companies. The notes are stored in the Workspaces application.
We have recently added the Upvise Tasks application to all Upvise Business accounts. You can now get things done even more quickly and efficiently. Manage all your tasks in one single view, including project and contact-related tasks. Assign tasks to your co-workers. Create task lists. On the application home screen on your mobile, tasks are grouped in one convenient list by due date, i.e Overdue, Today, Tomorrow, This Week and Later, so that you know instantly what needs to be done first. You can also browse tasks by Priority, Owner, Project, Contact, Company.
New users get the application at account creation, and for existing users the application has been automatically added to your business account. All the tasks that you had already created under Projects or Business Contacts continue to be accessible via these two applications, and are now also listed under the new Tasks application.
An update to Upvise version 2.1 is required. The features of this new version include alphabetical sorting of lists on your mobile, a new date edit screen with easy snooze functionality to update due dates, projects and tasks can now be linked to multiple contacts or companies (limited to only one previously).
