Citrix Releases Enhancements to Podio on Android, iOS

Citrix recently released a number of significant enhancements for its Citrix Podio collaboration platform. The updated versions of the Podio iPhone and Android apps offer further improvements to the app's collaboration focus.

Citrix also expanded Podio's multilingual and international support, adding Dutch and Japanese to its nine other supported languages.

Specific improvements include a new design for the iPhone Podio app, which offers faster access to users' favorite Podio workspace apps, while iOS Accessibility VoiceOver support makes Podio available to vision-impaired users.

The Podio Android app, on the other hand, received efficiency improvements, including more comprehensive task management and calendar features.

“Our new apps for iPhone and Android are optimized not only to make it easier to work and collaborate from a mobile device, but also to make it a delightful experience,” said Tommy Ahlers, VP of Social Collaboration at Citrix, in a statement. “The shift to mobile workstyles is reflected in the trends we see within our mobile users; a third of Podio’s mobile app users access Podio from a mobile device as frequently each day or even more than they do from their desktop, showing that they are working on-the-go every day and using their Podio mobile apps to do it effectively.”

With an increasingly mobile economy causing organizations to implement collaboration solutions and tools, Podio offers a cloud-based collaboration platform designed to address the needs of the modern business. By centralizing discussions and content, Podio makes collaboration easy, even on a mobile device.

Furthermore, the platform offers the flexibility and control needed to create or modify workflows to better suit individual projects.

Citrix also recently released a set of new solutions called NetScaler Insight Center, based on its cloud networking platform. NetScaler provides deep visibility and control of critical business applications and mobile services across public and private cloud environments.

Meanwhile, the company's most recent Enterprise Mobility Cloud Report states that Apple's iOS still leads in enterprise mobility worldwide, while Android devices have seen a sharp adoption increase in Europe.
