The new Android App puts your Podio Apps and Workspaces right onto your mobile. Any of your existing Podio Apps will work on your Android – helping you and your coworkers stay productive, wherever you are.
One company already using the new Android app is Nørrebro Bryghus, a Danish microbrewery with big ambitions. Their unique, all organic beers have won acclaim and customers around the world. Sales Director, Anders Kleinstrup calculates that Podio and the new Android App saves each of his staff half a day a week, by reducing their email clutter and admin tasks.
