Would be great if MYOB can make a Windows phone 8.1 app...or even better a Widnows 10 app (since it will be universal across all W10 devices).

Hi @RememberMS 

Thanks for the clarification

I would encourage other members of the MYOB Community that would like to see the MYOB OnTheGo work on Windows mobile device to vote and comment if required.

Hi @RememberMS

Thank you for your idea in regards to MYOB Essentials and Mobile Integrations

Currently MYOB Essentials can be run on a Mobile Device via an Internet Browser. We would recommend Google Chrome. We do have MYOB OnTheGo which is designed to work on Android and iOS devices only at this stage. MYOB OnTheGo is a cut down version of MYOB Essentials only allowing you to manage contacts and record invoices.

Where you thinking about MYOB OnTheGo running on a Windows Phone or would running MYOB Essentials directly through the Internet Browser on the device be sufficient?

I was thinking about MYOB OnTheGo for Windows. I was in a situation recently where I was talking to a client about their invoice and had to quickly open MYOB for reference over the browser on my Widnows phone. It did the job but it's just a bit clumsy, every page I open on the browser I have to zoom in to be able to click on the tabs and so on. An app designed for small screens is always better then using the browser.

 

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly too.

I Agree a Windows Phone App would be excellent.

Since the app was released i havnt been able to even access the Website in my phone browser (internet Explorer)

As an IT Support Service, we like to see all platforms in the mobile market have a fair go. As much as Apple & Google devices are the most popular in Australia, Windows Phone has been improving aswell as establishing its own unique attributes to rival Apple & Google, therefore as slow as it may seem, Windows Phone has gained popularity, plus Windows 10 is coming to Windows Phone and this time, they will truly create the "1 app for all" build. Windows Phone obviously uses Microsoft products and integrates well with Windows the best, and like it or not, Windows is considered the best platform for business and therefore, supporting a device that works best with the devices at your base will benefit you greatly. Mixing devices is a hassle and so it makes me wonder why MYOB has no support of Apps and add-on devices like the EFTPOS already.

 

We certainly vote MYOB Support for Windows Phone.

I'd really like to see this implemented.  Especially since its now easier than ever for the MYOB developers to port the android or iphone app to WP.  

 

I encourage the developers to go through the Microsoft Build 2015 Conference videos to learn more about how easy it is to port android/iphone apps to this platform.  

 

Lets bring the leading business accounting software to the best business phone on the market!

Hi @IpswichTech

It's great that you support both iOS and Android devices, but with the release of Windows 10 and upcoming release of Windows 10 for mobile phones, I would hope you are planning to share the love with a universal app that works on all Windows devices in the near future.

 

A Universal Windows app is coded once and can be run across the entire Windows 10 ecosystem including Phones, PCs and Tablets, and is also compatible with Xbox and HoloLens.

 

Targeting Windows 10 covers a greater market share than iOS, OSX, Android and Chromebooks combined, since it includes all PCs, Tablets and Phones including Microsoft Surface, Microsoft Surface Hub, Microsoft Lumia, and desktop PCs, laptops and tablets from Lenovo, Acer, Dell, HP, etc. and also Xbox One.

 

Your existing iOS, Android, Classic Windows or Web app can even be migrated easily to the Windows Universal platform using Windows Bridges.

 

Could you please confirm whether you have any plans to support your customers (including myself) that use Windows PCs, tablets and phones? If you are unable to do so, I will seek out an alternative business that is willing to support ALL of their customers.
