After countless hours of hard work by the Lighthouse.io team we're incredibly excited to launch our new location aware mobile app. We believe the app sets the benchmark for enterprise mobile apps and is on par with some of the best consumer apps in the market. Put simply, we think it will redefine the way work gets done in the enterprise.
What's on offer?
Enhanced location tracking
We've totally revamped the location tracking SDK in the app to more accurately process beacon signals and record GPS coordinates on demand. The core of our app just got even better.
New User Interface
We've completely overhauled the app interface to make it simple and more intuitive to use. We think it looks pretty slick too! For those design enthusiasts out there, the new interface has been inspired by Google’s Material Design.
Say hello to iOS
You asked, we listened. In addition to our Android mobile app we now have an iOS version for all of you Apple users out there. With both Android and iOS available we now cover 96.5% of the US smartphone market.
We've also introduced secure enterprise messaging into the new version of the app. Forget phone calls, text messages and two-way radios. You can now send and receive real-time messages to individuals or groups of employees across your locations - and at no extra cost!
While we're super excited to launch the new app we know we've still got a lot of work to do. We've mapped out a clear product roadmap for the app which includes new features such as an activity feed, live maps, check-ins (for lone workers) and duress triggers.
