Latest Basecamp 3 for Android Feature – Catch Up

Basecamp 3 for Android 3.5 is now available with some exciting features. First and foremost, the new Catch Up feature will make it easy for any user to get current and up-to-date with whatever is happening to their projects and teams. Previously, it can be quite challenging for a team member to open each Hey! item individually. Apparently, this process can take a while and leave the user a bit frustrated. With the latest Android app update, a user with 2 or more unread Hey! in their inbox will now see a Catch Up button.

When the user taps this button, he or she gets into Catch Up mode. Accordingly, the user can swipe through their unread Hey! items one by one. Each item will be displayed in an optimized way for easy reading. Also, a counter will appear on top showing the count of the unread items, until they have all been read.

Mark as Unread for A Serious Second Look

Another exciting feature in this latest Basecamp 3 for Android app is the Mark as Unread button at the left bottom section. It is a way to keep items inside the Hey! inbox when users only have time to browse through all their unread items. However, there are times when users need to give a longer, more serious second look on an item which they reserve for a later time at a more convenient place of reading.

Latest Basecamp 3 for iOS Feature – Pings in Hey!

Just a few days after the Android app update, the Basecamp iOS development team also launched the latest Basecamp 3 for iOS 3.4.1 with a set of new features. For instance, users can now more conveniently locate Pings at the top section in Hey! In the past, Pings can be both challenging to find and start. Now, iOS app users will see a row of avatars of their most recent Pings. It is also quicker to start a new Ping or easily swipe through previous ones.
