Mindjet Re-Envisions Mobile for Professionals Who Manage Teams and Projects On-the-Go

Mindjet 'Tasks' App Combines Elegant User Experience With Powerful Features to Unite Mobile Teams Around Critical Work

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Mindjet® today announced the availability of their purpose-built app for mobile team and project management, Mindjet Tasks. The redesigned app has been completely reconfigured so that professionals can, with a swipe of a finger, manage team projects and tasks at any time and from any location. The app is immediately available on iTunes® and will be updated for iPad® and Android™ devices later in Q4.

The age of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is here: Nine out of 10 workers carry a smart phone at work(1), and 80 percent continue to work after leaving the office(2). Increasingly, these team-centric workers have been accessing mobile devices to check in on projects and email, whether they are in meetings or on the road. Yet, effective team communications and project management have been missing.

With more teams working virtually, increased coordination and real-time updates are critical to keep activities on track -- whether it's managing marketing campaigns, recruiting new hires or planning project launches. Mindjet Tasks empowers the distributed workforce with a mobile hub to manage projects, tasks and teams in an easy-to-use and intuitive interface. With Mindjet, mobile teams can now innovate and execute on their best ideas, together, from their smartphones.

"Our research shows that most organizations are concerned about meeting the evolving needs of inherently mobile roles, such as sales and field service," said Chris Silva, an analyst with Altimeter Group. "These groups have distinct needs around not just consuming information on devices, but also creating and sharing information. The companies that deliver upon these productivity needs stand to capture a broad, dedicated user base."

With the latest release, Mindjet advances its popular mobile app, overhauling the user experience and adding features such as:

  • Mobile team and project modules that enable project and team management from the mobile device
  • Instinctual gesture controls for easy updates, task tracking, comments and team management
  • Ability to share information and plans, assign priorities and track tasks with multiple team members regardless of location
  • Real-time updates on documents, progress and plans, including team comments
  • Patent-pending auto-prioritization of tasks to keep you and your team on the right track
  • Instant connection with Mindjet web and desktop to update or add to your latest ideas and plans

"Mindjet Tasks does for teams what Clear and Any.Do do for the individual. It combines elegance and efficiency to bring people and plans together, meeting the evolving work needs of the always-on-the-go mobile professional," said Mindjet CMO Jascha Kaykas-Wolff. "With Mindjet, professionals can be more productive, creative and organized to, quite simply, work inspired."

To download a free copy of the new Mindjet app with Tasks, go to iTunes. To learn more about Mindjet Tasks, go to www.mindjet.com/mobile.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
