Only on Android: Add Basecamp 3 To-dos, Events, Messages, and Files from the home screen

Our Android app is awesome for staying on top of new activity. You can easily see unread messages, reply to notifications, and jump into Campfire chats. It’s great at what you’d expect to do on Mobile: check in and reply to stuff.

The Old Not-So-Great Way

On the other hand, the Android app wasn’t so great at adding something new. That’s another thing you’d expect to do quickly on Mobile. It used to take five screens (and a lot of scrolling) to add a new To-do to a Basecamp. Here’s how it used to work:

The New Improved Way

The new Quick Add feature allows you to add a To-do (and other stuff) right when you open the app.

Add a To-do, Add an Event, Post a Message, Upload a File

Here’s a video showing you how a To-do is added with Quick Add. It takes fewer taps now.

This new update also has these great additions:

  • Support for renaming Basecamp tools
  • Faster home screen
  • Fixed a timezone display issue
  • Fixed Campfire and Ping send button display
