The overall user experience is, and always had been one of our biggest priorities. As time progressed, we received quite some feedback with regards to our mobile application. According to many of our dear clients, the mobile application did not perform as good in comparison to the web version. In an ever-growing digital world in which mobile is becoming more important by the day; we decided it was time to completely redefine the mobile application in a way that makes more sense to everyone.
The new mobile experience
We’re proud to present the brand new mobile application. It’s faster, smarter, steadier, simpler and better than ever before. We embedded every single piece of feedback that we’ve received over the course of time. To truly grasp what specifically has changed, however, it is firstly important to understand the underlying reasons that set these changes in motion. That being said, here are some of the biggest pain points that the new mobile application addresses:
1. The all-in-one application
Initially, we thought it would be easier to provide two separate applications: one destined for chat, the other designed to manage new activities. It turned out however that most people preferred to have ‘all of this’, in one simple overview – prior to the talkspirit web application.
We actually couldn’t agree more, which is why the messenger functionality is now seamlessly embedded in the talkspirit application. Users will now enjoy a full overview of everything that’s going on, without the need of switching between two different apps!
2. Swift login procedure
Before, the mobile application would sometimes automatically sign-out the user. If this happened, the user’s login information had filled out – again. This event actually caused multiple issues at once. On one hand, it simply takes valuable time to fill out one’s login information. On the other hand, we found that many users experienced difficulties when dealing with the so-called ‘domain name’. Some organizations had considerably long and complicated domain names, whereas some users weren’t even fully aware of the correct domain name that the organization used.
All in all, enough reason to solve this particular inconvenience. First and foremost, the new mobile application won’t automatically sign-out a user anymore. Secondly, users can now easily log in with their email address. The application will automatically link this email address to the organization’s domain name – keeping it simple for everyone.
3. Enhanced user experience
The entire user-interface has been redesigned in a way that makes more sense and significantly increases the ease of use. Posts will now automatically adapt their size to the wideness of the screen. Images & attachments will now automatically open as a gallery – making it easier to slide through them. Many features now require fewer steps to execute – saving valuable time and effort.
The introduction of a new mobile app logically comes along with the introduction of a new mobile ‘roadmap’. Prior to the talkspirit web version, we are constantly striving to develop a better and saner mobile application than it was before. In the short term, we will soon introduce:
- The ability to mention others inside publications
- The ability to generate a new password
- The ability to edit or delete a publication
- The ability to participate in a poll or checklist
Where to get it?
Acquiring the new talkspirit application is simple. If you have already installed it, you don’t have to do anything as it automatically updates itself. In cause you haven’t downloaded it yet, you can grab it here for iOS or Android.
The more you know.
In case you have the talkspirit messenger app installed on your phone; feel free to delete it any given moment. As messenger is now seamlessly embedded in the new application, it is no longer usable.
