We’re excited to announce that, as part of Sunday’s release, we are introducing major improvements to the Quickbase mobile experience! This is a substantial addition to the view-only version we released back in January and includes that ability to add and edit records in your applications from your mobile device.

Quickbase mobile increases your team’s productivity by enabling users to access, update or create Quickbase data anytime, anywhere and from any device. The best thing is that you don’t need to do anything to mobile-enable your apps and there is nothing to install, it just works with your mobile browser!

One of our primary goals for Quickbase mobile was to provide a great mobile experience out-of-the-box, so that you can derive value instantly without having to make any changes to your applications. This month’s and January’s releases were focused on nailing the basics of the mobile experience such as easy navigation, key features, and logical information architecture.

We’ve also included integrations with your device’s native applications for a seamless experience. For example, when you tap a phone number in your Quickbase app, it will launch your native phone app to dial the number; or if you tap an email address it will launch a new email.

While you may not be able to use every Quickbase feature on any device with this release, we feel we’ve provided the optimal experience for each platform: deep functionality for when you’re at your desk; and key features for simple and fast data entry when you’re on the go. And of course, if you’d like to get your hands dirty while in the field, you can switch to full site mode on the mobile login screen or within your app.

We hope you are as excited as we are about the opportunities that Quickbase mobile brings to your company! You can check it out by visiting https://www.quickbase.com on your smartphone or tablet and signing in.
