I believe Podio is at the center of the biggest shift in how we work since the industrial revolution. I carry this message to media and to anyone else who'll listen. Boom.
Box and Podio team up for the mobile worker28.03.12 Posted in Product News by Lilly Hanscom
Does this sound familiar? You’re heading off to an event and working on the go, when someone pings you on an urgent task. You think “oh snap, I can do that on my celly,” and ready your magic mobile fingers, but with a few taps discover you CAN’T do that on your phone — you’re missing that badass presentation, those carefully transcribed notes, or that laser-precise financial model. You can do some peripheral stuff around that task but somehow you can’t quite get the job done using that shiny handheld device. Foiled again, you think!
Well, we think you deserve better. You’re a modern mobile worker and nothing should slow you down! That’s why today, Box and Podio are taking an important step in preventing frustrating situations like this from happening to workers like you around the world.
Using our new mobile integration with Box’s newly launched OneCloud platform, you’ll now be able to share Box files to your Podio workspaces, apps, and tasks, directly from your iPhone.
What does this mean for you? It means no more digging through emails to get the files you need on your mobile, no more annoying switching between different mobile apps, no more “I’ll have to do that when I’m back at my desk” excuses. No retreat, no surrender. Mobile productivity just got more awesome!
Here’s how it works:
- To get started, launch your Podio iPhone app, or add it if you’re just getting started (don’t worry, you can sign up for free!)
- Go to your activity stream, or anywhere else you can add a file. (Look for the paperclip icon).
- Select “From the Cloud.” If you’ve already connected Box with Podio on the web, your Box account will automatically appear
- If you haven’t, just click “Connect.” Login to Box, and you’ll have instant access to all of your files
And starting today, you can also access the Podio mobile app from within the Box iPhone app. Just select “More Apps”, which will open the Box “Mobile App Gallery” with a list of Box’s partner mobile apps, including Podio!
Now, about this Box OneCloud platform — it just launched today and is the first mobile enterprise platform to unify business information across devices, applications and operating systems. Box calls it “an ecosystem of over 30 powerful productivity applications that enable the enterprise to securely connect and share content from their mobile devices.” As of today, OneCloud is available on iOS for all users and we’re psyched to be a part of it. Now, do yourself a favor and get productively mobile!
