Take note Basecamp users, a universal mobile app for your favorite project management tool is seeking beta testers as of today. If all goes according to plan, Bryte Software’s Kompass will hit it out of the ballpark with support for BlackBerry, iPhone, Windows Mobile & Android.
ReadWriteWeb has used Basecamp for some time now, and we’ve definitely lamented the utter lack of mobile access. For one of the top group productivity tools on the market, its exclusive use of the browser is something of a travesty.
Not to say that there aren’t hurdles to taking Basecamp on to smartphones.
Converting a collaborative, project-based tool in to something easily accessible from the user-centric environment of a mobile device presents something of a challenge to any developer. Here’s hoping that Kompass can transcend those challenges in its attempt to take Basecamp fully mobile for the first time.
