One of our greatest long-term ambitions has always been to give all Akkroo customers the freedom to use any device they wish for Event Lead Capture activity.
From day one at Akkroo, we’ve primarily focussed on apps for the iPhone and iPad. We felt it made a lot of sense to concentrate our resources on developing the best possible experience for a single platform rather than spreading ourselves too thin. We have therefore always maintained the advantage of being able to serve our customers best on Apple manufactured devices.
However this decision means that many present and potential customers who like to use Android have been a little left out in the cold with just a basic offering of the Akkroo app.
A long time ago we made a commitment to launch a full version of Akkroo on Android as soon as it was feasible to do so. I’m thrilled to share with you that we are now in a position to do this; the launch is just a few weeks away.
Very shortly we will launch a new and upgraded version of both our apps for Android and iOS, re-built from the ground up and benefiting from the best of modern app technologies. This will mean every customer will have a great new app, and allow us to bring the full Akkroo experience to Android users for the first time.
The team have been working incredibly hard to make this happen, and it’s really exciting to finally be able to get this into your hands.
The whole app has been re-written from the ground up. Every piece of functionality has been reviewed and sharpened. We have rolled-in the best of modern development techniques and technology throughout: peeling away older layers of the app that are no longer useful, and replacing it with higher quality, better documented, more accessible software.
That may not mean much if you don’t write code for a living, so in plain English, there are three simple things to know:
- Enhanced performance – the app is now faster, with a sleeker look and feel.
- Improved reliability – your data is safely stored, whenever and wherever you’re using the app.
- Upgraded security – we continually invest in our security program so it meets the high enterprise standards and expectations.
It also gives us as a business the best possible platform to meet our future challenges head-on.
We’re really looking forward to getting the new apps into your hands soon, so please keep an eye out for further updates in the coming weeks.
