Peak: A Native BaseCamp by 37Signals App Now Available

Comments

Peak Ryan Nickel

BaseCamp is a great tool by 37Signals that lets small businesses and startups coordinate and get the team moving more efficiently. The last BaseCamp app we wrote about was the Kompass for BaseCamp app that is a web-based tool for managing your BaseCamp account. The app is cool and the decision to use the web makes sense when you look at how many small businesses have a lot of device fragmentation, but a native app was still needed. Native apps just run smoother and are accessible offline.

We’ve been following Kompass for Basecamp for some time now because Basecamp is a popular tool for small business to stay organized and manage projects, and Kompass has provided a solid mobile component. The app uses a web interface rather than a mobile app because small companies tend to have more fragmentation than large companies and the web is a common thread.

Bryte Software are working on an application that I’m personally really excited about. They have begun the internal alpha testing on a new Basecamp portal specifically designed to work with Blackberry platform called “Kompass.” Kompass is the first Basecamp portal made to work on BlackBerry.

Just in case you’re not familiar with Basecamp, it is the world’s leading web-based project management application. They currently have over 3,000,000 users. However, to date, only one BlackBerry application has ever been created for mobile access to Basecamp and it is no longer receiving ample support. This has left many BlackBerry users (including myself) in the dark while iPhone developers create a multitude of apps. I even know of certain individuals switching to the iPhone or buying an iPod Touch specifically for the Basecamp applications.

Bryte Software and Kompass are beginning to accept applications for private beta testers at kompasshq.com.

Be sure to mention you heard about it first on BlackBerryCool.com!
