Smartsheet Launches Android App; Enhances iPhone & iPad App
Bellevue, Wash. – September 17, 2013 -- Smartsheet, the popular spreadsheet-inspired collaboration tool used by more than two million people worldwide, expanded its mobile portfolio today with a new Android app and significantly enhanced iPhone and iPad app.
Smartsheet’s new Android app, available in the Google Play Store, the Amazon Appstore and the Kindle Fire Appstore, allows users to access and update project details and collaborate with teams from their Android devices.
“Our team is very mobile, working with clients onsite negotiating leases and managing construction projects at commercial properties across seven states,” said Martin Stever, president of Pacific Land West, LLC. “Having all project details at our fingertips in Smartsheet via our mobile devices is critical to productivity and ultimately the success of our business. The added flexibility of having the Android App is a tremendous benefit because it helps us focus on the work at hand, regardless of where we are or what device we choose to use.”
New Features for iPhone and iPad App
In addition to the launch of the Android app, Smartsheet added power features to its iPhone and iPad app. New capabilities include interactive Gantt charts and the ability to create new sheets and modify columns directly from devices.
“Our customers increasingly want access to Smartsheet from their mobile devices, as witnessed from the rapid adoption of our earlier versions,” said Mark Mader, president and CEO of Smartsheet. “Mobile productivity is fundamental to workplace productivity and we’re excited to extend our native mobile offerings and give users the anytime access they expect from the apps they value most.”
