This can be very useful under certain circumstances. If you are accessing the application from a tablet, with a decent size screen and a good Internet connection, you may want to access all its features through the normal web site.
We have also updated the design of the mobile application, a new image consistent with the website:
I take this opportunity to tell you our current plan (1) concerning to mobile development:
- We are developing specific applications for Android and iOS, which are currently in alpha release. The Android version is already published in the Android Market. The iPhone app has been delayed and we will wait for the beta version to publish it.
- We are improving our webapp, since—in addition to offering more functionality to iOS and Android users—it allows access to customers who use Windows Phone, Blackberry and WebOS. Our next efforts will aim to make it run faster and start to add offline features.
- We are starting to develop a new HTML5 user interface that can be efficiently used with tablets, to which we will also progressively add offline features.
1 This is our today plan, and it
can be changed. We are a dynamic company, and our plans will vary depending on new technologies, market research, available resources and preferences of our customers.
