“Wow What An Amazing App For My iPhone! I Have Told My Team And Everyone I Come Across How Great It Is! Thanks MobileDay!!!”

Company: Technology

Testimonial:”Wow what an amazing app for my iPhone! I run a consulting practice and have between 25-30 calls a week. A majority of those calls are made from client sites, my car or just trying to get from point A to point B. This application has changed my ability to be effective. I never thought my favorite app would be business related! My two favorite features are  the one touch “join” button and the reminders. It’s hard to remember some of the longer call entry sequences and when you dial from your phone while referencing the calendar details on the phone can be challenging. This application dials it for me!! I also love that the reminder pops up when it’s time to make the call not 15 min before. Sometimes I get distracted in those 15 min so the instant reminder is great. I have told my team and everyone I come across how great it is! Thanks MobileDay!!!”

We’ve Been Listening: New MobileDay Features on iPhone

Developing a successful mobile app is a challenge.  If it were not for the tremendous feedback that we receive from our users, our smart business app would not be what it is today.  We capture all of your feedback, categorize it, prioritize it and apply much of what we learn to upcoming development efforts to ensure that your mobile day goes smoothly.  We’ve been listening.  As a result, MobileDay now includes the following new features:

  • Online Meetings – One-Touch access into any Cisco WebEx®, Citrix GoToMeeting®, Google+ Hangouts or Apple FaceTime meetings that are scheduled in your calendar

  • Quick Call – Users can easily start or join ad hoc voice conference calls with the ability to store meeting host and guest call entry information in the app

  • Reminders – Users can easily send call entry details to guests via SMS text to provide One-Touch access to their calls, right from the text message

 

  • Siri – Launch MobileDay using Siri with the general command, “open MobileDay”, where Siri is available

The new features join the following core functionality:

  • Calendar Integration – Seamlessly detects upcoming scheduled calls and conference calls in the user’s mobile calendar .
  • One-Touch Dialing – Automatically dials into conference call in your mobile calendar without the need for users to enter codes, #, 1s, or other characters.
  • Support for any conference calling service –Whether host or guest of any conference call, MobileDay provides access with a single tap of the Join button.
  • Call Notification – Notifies the user 30 seconds before each call with options to join, dismiss, or snooze the alert with one touch.
  • Communicate with Meeting Attendees – Enables users to quickly and easily email or text their fellow meeting or conference call attendees with standard messages like, “I’m running late” or “Are we still meeting?” or even a custom message.

Keep the feedback coming.  We hear you!

Sending Feedback is Easy During Your Mobile Day

Thumbs up or Thumbs Down?  That is the question.

This is our support team’s favorite feature in the MobileDay app.  “Why is that?” you say? Well, it is the fastest way for us to understand what is working for you as a user.  It is also an even better way for us to understand what did not work so well when you tried it.

Here’s how it works.  When you have used the MobileDay Join button for entering a meeting or conference call, the MobileDay interface will then have these opposing thumbs show up on the meeting that has transpired.  If you had an issue with your call you can quickly send us meeting details so we can research the issue and fix any problems by clicking Thumbs Down. When you have a great experience with MobileDay, simply press Thumbs Up and opt to share this mobile meeting success with your colleagues.  We need your help spreading the good word about the magic we call MobileDay so thank you!

Vintage Mobile – Smiling and Dialing

Here at MobileDay, we love vintage mobile phone images. As a career sales guy, this one is is a favorite. Rotary mobile…so cool. ” Smilin’ and Dialin’ “was a term of cold calling endearment back in an entry level job that I once had on an inside sales team. Wow…things have come a long way in telephony…especially in mobile.

A ‘Squirrelly’ Mobile Conference Call

As a knowledge worker, you are likely to at least participate in conference calls, if not hosting them yourself. I have been doing audio conference calls in business for more that 15 years, watching the technology change and morph from scheduling calls with operators into its current form used today, which is primarily reservationless conferencing, that is, using unique combinations of toll-free numbers and pass codes and/or PINs to get into a particular call instead of using an operator.  Heck, these calls have even become free to organize and use. Simple right?  Well, the mad growth in the business use of the mobile smartphone,  and the giant wave of remote work and road work being done, has created a whole new dimension to this newer method of conferencing.  Mobile devices now account for over 25% of all the people dialing into conference calls  each day and that number is increasing.  As we transition to joining calls from our cool new mobile device, there are new nuances that make things more challenging.  Multitasking, network quality, battery life, pass codes and PINs, an app for this and app for that… it can be a challenge just to join a call.

 

Since going mobile, I have had my fair share of times where the call was a bust.  I was working from home and discovered that my dog left the screen door open while I was on a conference call.  (Yes, my dog can open doors, but cannot close them.)  A squirrel had entered the house while I was in my home office and proceeded to tear about trying to find solace from my dog, the nice canine gentlemen that let him into this fine establishment (aka my living room).  Dog chases squirrel, things get loud, I start to yell (profane) all while my mobile phone remained un-muted.  The kicker was that this call was with my whole staff.  I sounded (and acted) like a lunatic until it discovered the open screen and returned to the yard.  Needless to say, they will never forget.
