iPhone and iPad app updates

Okappy iOS App v13.12

See also: iPhone updates | Android updates | Web updates | Request new features

Improvements and enhancements

You can now either

  • upload one image/video or signature at a time then be able to complete a job once done (the old way), or
  • upload images/videos or signatures in the background allowing you to continue updating other jobs. Once the images have been uploaded for that job then the job can be completed. Note: upload performance depends on your device including power, settings, network and other background processes. Keep the app open to optimise upload speed.

  • We've improved how the app starts up when you have poor or no network connection. Thanks to Paul and Steve for pointing it out.
  • You can now view a job's 'Type' as well as its 'End time' inside the job details screen. Thanks to Thomas (again!) and Oliver for suggesting those two.

  • When viewing or editing check sheets, it's now easier to get back to the job details page without necessarily submitting the check sheet first.  This is on all check sheets apart from the initial one which is often a risk assessment and needs to be completed before carrying on.

Enhancements

  • We made the text darker in places so that it's easier to read, especially in strong light.  That is for Colin whose eyes find it hard to adjust to daylight when he comes out of the drains 😉

  • You can now leave job un-assigned when adding them from the iPhone and iPad - that's for you Thomas.
  • Now you don't need to complete the jobs as soon as you've added work done details. The job stays open until you finally complete it which means you can add more details, signatures or images
