New Huddle iOS App Updates Make Mobile Productivity a More Social Experience
‘Huddle for iPhone’ and ‘Huddle for iPad’ deliver a better way to collaborate on content and manage projects while on the move.
SAN FRANCISCO and LONDON – June 30, 2015 – Huddle, the leader in secure collaboration tools for enterprise and government, has updated its portfolio of iOS productivity apps with updates to Huddle for iPhone, and Huddle for iPad. The apps, which provide users with a simple and secure way to collaborate on content and manage projects while on the move, are designed to deliver a more social experience by focusing on team activity around content. The latest updates include the ability to request document approvals and quickly retrieve recent files.
Mobile usage of the Huddle platform has increased rapidly over the last year, with an increasing number of users choosing to access the service from their mobile device.
“Surfacing relevant content is vital for mobile users, and our iOS apps are designed to help them get to the work that matters most by placing particular focus on discoverability of content and tasks,” explains Stuart Cochran, CTO of Huddle. “No one wants to have to drill down into folders to find files while they’re rushing between meetings, so notifications and a live activity stream keep them up to date with team progress, upcoming tasks and approvals. It’s a far more effective way to get to the content that matters, as well as being a more enjoyable experience.”
The latest updates serve to improve the cross-platform functionality of Huddle, allowing users to pick up where they left off as they hop between their PC, smartphone and tablet.
“If I’m working on a document at my desk on my laptop, my recent files will automatically be waiting for me on my iOS devices,” adds Cochran. “Huddle will even suggest files that it thinks will be of interest to me and sync them down to my mobile devices ready for my commute home. It makes hopping between devices seamless, it reduces the time spent searching for documents and it keeps users on top of their workload, wherever they are.”
