New in Basecamp for Android 3.4

The last update for their app was only a month ago, but Team Android at Basecamp has kept a steady pace to release a new version of the app, chock full of slick new screens and updates to features you already love. Here’s what you’ll find in the latest version, available today:

New Hey! Menu

The new Hey! menu brings all your new @mentions, Messages, Comments, To-dos, Events, and Campfire chats into one place. If it’s new in your account, it’s in your Hey! menu.

Hey! is for horses and Basecamp notifications.

Improved Pings

Pings are a great way to reach out to someone on your account without creating noise for your other colleagues in a Team or Project Campfire. This update makes them even easier to use on Android. Now, each Ping with an individual user gets its own color with a profile picture:

Ping a friend.

Group pings are now clearer. Tap the colored toolbar to see who is participating in the Ping. You can also tap a participant’s profile picture to see that person’s time zone and other information:

Purple is the color of our true group Pings, in the morning when we rise.

You can also send a Ping from any screen in the app. Here’s how it works:

Fixes and Fine Tuning

In addition to those great features above, the team added a little polish all over like swiping right to go back to the previous screen and displaying to-do list descriptions. They also made some adjustments to make drafting and saving messages and comments smoother.
