ShareTask For Android Next kalmstrom.com App

ShareTask iconAugust has been a month of several important announcements in the IT business. Steve Jobs has stepped down as CEO of Apple, Hewlett-Packard wants to spin off its PC division and Google will buy Motorola Mobility.

As we see it now, only the Google-Motorola news will directly affect the future of kalmstrom.com. It will not mean any big changes of our plans, but since Motorola for several years has had Google's Android as the only operating system in all of their smart phone devices, we think Android will grew stronger with Google's acquisition of Motorola Mobility. This has made us prioritize something we have been talking about for a while: a ShareTask for Android devices.

Even if kalmstrom.com does not strive to be big on smart phone apps, we want to help our customers take advantage of the mobility benefits they give. Therefore we have begun developing apps in fields close to our own products together with partners who are experts on development for mobile devices. ShareTask for Android will be such a product.

In cooperation with softage.ru, kalmstrom.com has earlier developed an app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that gives you the SharePoint Task list directly in the handheld. You can edit the tasks, add new ones, attach images and much more with just a finger. Now we want to give Android users the same possibility, and earlier this week we signed the contract with our partner.

We have not only created ShareTask together with softage.ru but also iNameDays, an app that adds name days in the standard iOS calendar, so I feel sure that our new project will be successful. I will come back to you about it as soon as there are more news to tell
