Qhub Android App Released
New Year, New Stuff!
In return for a paid subscription, the Qhub team will actually custom build an Android app for you which can then be downloaded and used on any Android mobile device.
A Qhub Android app customer can then display and log in to his own hub as Administrator, and his group’s members (who ever they might be) can display and interact with the same hub, asking and answering questions, etc., just as if the session were on a desktop computer. And it’s quite smooth and responsive.
We think features like in-app video (that is, your mobile device doesn’t suddenly switch to the YouTube app (we hate that…)) are nice touches that make this app a bit of a winner. And the in-app tutorials for hub owners (see the screen shot below) really help them set up their hubs as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
And, if you are an existing Deluxe plan customer at Qhub, shoot us an email at Support@Qhub.com and you’ll be able to have your own Android app for free.
Note that the App you get via the above Google play button is a live example of what a Qhub-based Android app looks like, based on the Qhub at Help.Qhub.com. There’s another live example of such an app that the Qhub team has built at based on the hub at Help.Events-Ticketing.com.
As you can see in the photos below, the app looks particularly good on my Samsung Galaxy Note II running the latest Android OS. Particularly, the mobile device’s stylus makes it fun to tap through the menus at great speed. The late great Steve Jobs didn’t approve of the stylus. I do. It just makes sense sometimes. Anyway, I digress…
This is just one of the many new features we’ll be rolling out in 2014.
Oh, and will we be building an iOS app for iPhones and iPads? Yes, we are planning to, but Apple’s process for getting apps registered is vastly more complex than Google’s. So stay tuned and we’ll see how that pans out.
And finally, please remember that you don’t need an Android mobile device to use Qhub. All hubs are optimized for mobile, and will render very well in any browser, mobile or otherwise. So take a look at Qhub.com if you get a chance, and decide for yourself if it’s a good fit for you.
