For an app that’s been around since 2007, two iterations of its iOS app seems a bit on the light side. We agree. So today we have not just one announcement, but two:
It has the basics from before. Stay up to date on your team’s activity. Easily search your leads and quickly call, text, or get directions. Plan your day with tasks and follow-ups.
And it has some important new features.
Search leads by tag. View tags on contacts. See upcoming tasks when viewing a lead.
Scroll through all of your tasks. Whether you have 2 or thousands of overdue or upcoming tasks… though we still can’t help you get them done. 🙂
And more… like the ability to enter custom fields and choose from predefined values, dial incorrectly formatted international phone numbers, emoji, saved recent searches.
Alas, it doesn’t have everything for everyone yet. Some will notice it doesn’t have Cases or Deals.
But, our second announcement is that this is a whole rewrite of our mobile platform using C# and Microsoft’s Xamarin. This allows us to:
- update more frequently
- add functionality easily
- update it in parallel with our Android app. For those of you using the Android app from January, we have the same features headed your way soon!
So we can get Deals and Cases added a lot easier now. Please stay tuned if that’s something you need. And if you want to hear more about our choice to use C# and Microsoft’s tools in our mobile development, here’s an interview with Michael Dwan our CTO.
Here’s some feedback so far:
Just Right (iankennedy) August 7, 2017 The perfect CRM for a small business with multiple offices. We use Highrise to coordinate several offices and hundreds of clients. The mobile app is great for entering quick notes or adding new contacts on the fly when out in the field. Take [conversation] out of email and put them in Highrise

The iOS update to @highrise is a huge jump forward. Hope that it allows them to roll out other improvements.
