Viira for Android: Cloud Sync, Lost Of New Features Available!

Filed under: android, gtd — admin @ 9:11 am

We are happy to announce that the Viira Cloud Sync service is now available as a public beta! You can download the beta from the beta download page. The beta is available for Android 4.0 or later and is compatible with Android 5.0.

The usual warnings apply: please proceed to download and install only if you are comfortable and understand the implications of running beta software on your device.

In addition to making the Cloud Sync available on Android we have used this is an opportunity to release a number of new features and enhancements to make Viira on Android have the same feature set as Viira on BlackBerry 10, the Viira Outlook Add-In and the Viira PC App. Here are the new enhancements in this release:

  • Reminders. You can now add a reminder to any task in Viira.
  • Automatic sorting. Completed tasks get automatically moved to the bottom of any task list whereas next actions get moved to the top.
  • Task Reordering. You can re-order the tasks in any project, context, day as well as within your Next Actions by selecting Reorder Tasks from the menu.
  • Smart Navigation. Viewing a task presents links to the task’s project, contexts or day, if applicable. Clicking on those links opens the respective project, context or day making it easier for you to navigate with ease over your entire GTD system.
  • Contact Tasks. Just like on BlackBerry and on Microsoft Outlook you can now create tasks based on a contact from Android. Contact tasks can be re-ordered, assigned as next actions and synced across devices and platforms.
  • Smart Contact Resolve. Contact tasks created and synced from the Viira Outlook Add-In or Viira on BlackBerry 10 get resolved against your Contacts database. If there is a match Viira displays the contact’s image (if available) as well as a quick access card with actions for this contact, e.g. call, email, skype, etc.
  • Email Tasks.   A top-level view where you can find all your email tasks. Email tasks can be re-ordered and assigned as next actions. Note that for this version of the beta email tasks can only be created from Viira on BlackBery 10 or the Viira Outlook Add-In and then get synced to Viira on Android.

And here are some screenshots of how the Viira Android Beta looks:
