New JibberJobber Widget: Your Calendar!

September 14th, 2017

We recently announced the first (and second) versions of our first Chrome Browser Widget, which we call the JibberJobber Job Search Widget (info here, download from here). Now we get to announce our next browser widget, the JibberJobber Calendar Widget. This allows you to click on your browser toolbar and access your JibberJobber Calendar from anywhere.

I have already identified a few touch-ups I’ll send to the team, but I’ll also wait to hear what your feedback is.  For now, here’s the awesomeness that this brings you:

Convenient view of what’s going on

The Calendar Widget travels with you. Yes, Google Calendar does too, and there’s no way we can replace that… but as long as you have Chrome open, you can look at your Calendar at any time… just click the icon for the widget (this icon will likely be replaced):

jibberjobber_calendar_widget

Login, and then choose your view

I have logged in (otherwise the Log Out button will be a different color, and prompt me to login). The default view is Monthly, which is my preference (on Google Maps my preference is weekly… weird, huh?).

jibberjobber_calendar_widget_header

Under Option you can choose to show or hide things… such as birthdays, closed Action Items, etc.  Poke around those preferences, but I just left them as default.

Note the green Add Event button… we’ll get to that in a minute.

See what’s going on

In my monthly view I am showing holidays (Sept 4th), birthdays (on Sept 5th, I blotted out the name), recurring Action Items (Sept 4th), and regular Action Items (Aug 30). I can also show Log Entries (that would be a lot of stuff!)

jibberjobber_calendar_widget_view_month

Add new things (Log Entries, Action Items)

If I click the Add Event, or a plus icon next to a date, I can add a new Log Entry or Action Item.

jibberjobber_calendar_widget_monthly_view

The green Add Event opens the entire add dialog, whereas the plus icon by a date opens up a small form that you can expand by clicking “edit” (just like in Google Calendar).

Is this useful? When I was first presented the idea I thought “meh… kind of cool… not sure if we should spend out time on it.” But then I started playing around with it and honestly, this is a very convenient tool.

If you have ANY suggestions or enhancement requests, please send them my way (Jason@JibberJobber.com). I already have my list of six items… and can’t wait to hear from you.

JibberJobber Mobile Apps: Android and iOS (Apple)

June 21st, 2016

Liz asked me to let you know the mobile apps are available. I thought I did but I can see that I didn’t make a proper announcement… so…

THE JIBBERJOBBER MOBILE APPS ARE AVAILABLE!!!

Check out the JibberJobber mobile app page here.

JibberJobber for Android is here.

JibberJobber for iOS is here.

Please rate and review them, if you are in a good mood. If you are in a grumpy mood, well… be kind :p

What’s the plan with these mobile apps?  Just like we have updated and maintained the JibberJobber web tool for years and years, we’ll update and maintain the mobile apps.

The first update of the mobile apps is coming soon, based on lots of feedback from users.

JibberJobber Mobile App for Android

February 26th, 2016

Yesterday I announced the JibberJobber app for android is available in the Google Play store.  You can check it out here: JibberJobber Android App. The iOS app should be out soon…

Here’s a screenshot of the homepage, with my annotations in red.

JibberJobber_android_app_v1

1. The back button is on every page, which you’ll use to navigate back to where you came from.

2. The dropdown menu… for now, similar to the bottom menu (#6)

3. On the home screen, you see your action items due today.

4. The main menu…

5. If you click “Contacts,” or “Companies,” etc. you’ll go to a page to see and search for your Contacts, Companies, etc.  On the right, if you click the + button, you can add new records.

6. The main menu.. home, Contacts, Companies, Jobs, and Action Items.

This is Phase I… there’s more to come.  We need your feedback on any problems you come up against, anything that is not intuitive, and as important, any features you want to see included in the next releases.

Thanks!

New: The JibberJobber Mobile App for Android

February 25th, 2016

Yesterday I posted Announcement #1.  This is Announcement #2.

Today we released the Android app for JibberJobber.  If you are a JibberJobber user, please download this free app and let us know what you think.  The iOS app should be released soon, although Apple has a longer release process… so I really don’t know when that will be available.

Click here to see it.

This app is pretty cool.  We’ve worked on the design, development, and testing for months.  It’s also what I call “version 1.” The most important thing we need at this point is YOUR FEEDBACK.

If there is anything that doesn’t work right, or any part of the design that is not intuitive, or if there are features that you need/want, please let us know. Use the Contact page to let us know what we can do to improve (and, what you like).  Your feedback is critical so that we can make Phase II even better.

Here’s a direct link to the app in the Google Play store. Hopefully the app will be found in the store soon, but for now just use that link.

We’d appreciate any great rankings. If you have a problem with anything, please contact us immediately so we can get it fixed… that’s a lot more effective than leaving a rant or low rank on the app store.

Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you!
