The FotoNotes 2.0 iOS App is here!

We’re thrilled to announce the latest release of the FotoNotes iOS Mobile app for iPhone and iPad. This release provides robust offline capabilities, improvements to the photo taking user experience and number of other smaller enhancements.

Offline Capabilities

You can now use the FotoNotes mobile app even when you don’t have a network connection. Edit data, take photos and add voice notes and set status while offline and when you get back online all data is synced back with the FotoNotes in the background. A few details:

  • When you first login you’ll notice that all the data on your phone will update.  This may take a minute or two the first time.
  • Once the data is updated you can work on any item while offline
  • When your device re-establishes a connection the data is sync’d automatically in the background
  • Creating new items from templates, sharing and generating reports still requires a connection

Improved Photo Taking

We’ve streamlined the photo capture experience by moving the photo button and making it easier to take photos.  Here are a few details:

  • The button for taking photos has moved and is now more obvious
  • Taking photos is faster than before
  • You can add text captions to photos
  • Data fields that have photos always show the photo thumbnails
  • In your templates you can configure which fields allow photos
  • The default aspect ratio of your photos can be configured to something other than 1:1 square e.g. 4:3 Landscape

What’s next?

We’re continuously improving our products, and here are a couple of things you can expect to see coming soon:

  • More streamlined UI for taking multiple, consecutive photos
  • Supporting projects that contain other projects for use cases like punch lists
  • More features available while offline

We’d love to hear what you think about these new these feature so please email us at support@fotonotes.com with feedback, questions, or suggestions!
