A few weeks ago, you may have heard some celebrating happening over in our corner of the Internet:

It’s true: LiquidPlanner 3.0 is now available for iPad (and iPhone), and we hope you’ll like what you see.

If you’ve used our mobile app in the past, get ready for a vastly different experience this time around. When we started developing LP 3.0, we knew we had a great opportunity to overhaul our mobile app at the same time (truth be told, LP 3.0 wasn’t actually compatible with the old mobile app, so we had to overhaul it).  The new version of the web app gave us the opportunity to ask the question: what do our customers really need from a mobile app?

The way we work today is vastly different from how we worked even a few years ago. Project managers are bringing their iPads to meetings instead of their laptops. Executives want to stand in line at the coffee shop and update their customers on project progress. Employees work on their presentations while commuting on the subway.

In our old iPhone app, users could primarily view their personal task lists and the workspace’s comment stream. In the new version, you can browse your entire portfolio, view your schedules, edit and update tasks, view attached files and detailed notes, and more – no matter how many items you have in your plan.

We designed the app completely in house, and now we’re hard at work on an HTML5 version so we can extend the experience to other mobile platforms. We also have a big fat file of enhancements we’d like to make to the app. Your feedback and comments will help us prioritize that list, so please let us know what you think!

Last but not least, we’d like to send a big thank you to our customers, who were patient and supportive during the development and approval process. We hope it was worth the wait.
