I’m very excited to hear about this, especially this soon. I wasn’t really expecting anything tangible before the end of the year.
I guess everybody’s use case will be different, but I’m somehwat disappointed to see that creating invoices, the one feature I need more than anything else, is at the very bottom of the list.
Due to the nature of my work I need to create invoices on the fly, on site, and this is what I struggle with most on my mobile devices. I don’t use or need a laptop, so I solely use small screen devices to create my invoices. The web interface works, yes, but I have to do an awful lot of scrolling and pinch zooming to enter all data and tick the right boxes. Creating invoices is very cumbersome indeed. All other activities I tend to do from home on my desktop PC.
Regardless, I’m happy to give the app a try and provide feedback where possible, so I’ll send a private message as requested.
One thing is very important to me from a usability point of view, and that is full UI support for landscape mode.
My main device is a Planet Computers Gemini, soon to be replaced with its successor, the Cosmo. These devices are heavily focused on productivity on the go, and use landscape orientation by design, so the UI of the app needs to have full support for this. My use case isn’t unique as many tablets are designed to be used in landscape mode (tablet covers with integrated stand are all made for landscape orientation). It also affects users who use their mobiles phones in landscape mode when using their devices as a desktop PC, for example Samsung Dex.
Apps often force themselves to portrait mode, which makes text entry using the Gemini’s and Cosmo’s integrated full keyboard very difficult. The Gemini provides an option to enforce landscape mode, but if the app’s UI is not designed to support this functionality is often broken. Examples are buttons disappearing off screen, dialogs getting cancelled, no support for scrolling, or other parts of the UI becoming inaccessible, to name but a few.
Once the Cosmo has been released (September/October this year) it will replace both my mobile phone and Gemini, so landscape support is very important to me. I’m more than happy to assist with testing, if required.
