Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

Thoughts on mobile and social business applications, design, and user experience, by Chris Reckling.

The end of the year brings much cheer to the app store, with a new release of Sametime Meetings and now Traveler To Do apps on the Apple App Store and for Android as part of the Traveler Upgrade Pack 2.

Per usual, for the mobile apps, designer Jessica Peter sought to optimize for the primary use cases. I would say our first use case was to be able to quickly and easily enter in a to do and mark it complete, as this is the most basic task (so to speak) for a To Do app to perform. Therefore, all you have to do is enter in the name of the to do and you are done. If you like to enter more info, like start date and end date, you can open the full form up and add whatever you need. To complete the to do, check the box. Done.

The only other thing you might want to understand about this app is that we decided to adopt a more modern terminology that doesn't quite map back to Notes To Do's. Specifically, to do's can be organised into "Lists". So, you might have a list for different projects, personal, work, hobbies, or whatever. It's up to you. In Notes terms, Lists are Categories. Got it?

Important note: You will need to install the Traveler Upgrade Pack 2 on the Domino server where Traveler is running to sync your To Do's. Your Android users should receive a notification to update the Traveler app once you've installed everything on the server. See Mat Newmann's blog for how that works.

You may now start to-do-ing.
