Document-management and collaboration firm Workshare has announced the launch of an update to its iOS app, called Workshare Mobile, designed to offer a raft of improvements for iPhone and iPad users.
The app's biggest new feature is called Scribble, which lets users leave notes on documents with distinctive pen styles and colours, to make it clear who has left each comment.
A new thumbnail view has also been added so users can more easily flick through the pages of a document to find key information. A full-screen mode also ensures documents can be viewed in full-screen mode without losing quality.
Workshare CEO Anthony Foy said these updates would help bring greater functionality to users, especially as mobile working continues to grow.
“Users are becoming highly selective about the apps they use and expect the same simplicity that consumer applications offer when collaborating for work,” he said.
“Our new mobile app provides an intuitive way of working with documents from a mobile device, which users are used to in their personal lives, yet [it] provides the highest level of security that regulated companies require.”
Other capabilities added include Private Notes, which allows the author to make notes only they can see, while the firm also touted search and navigation improvements.
Workshare's growth is being led from the UK, since the firm moved its headquarters to London after it was bought out by UK firm SkyDox. The firm chose to keep the Workshare name as it had a bigger brand appeal in US markets, where the firm does a lot of business.
