Our buddy Daniel Shelley (formerly of Novell, Inc.) has a new iPhone app on the App Store! If you use GroupWise WebAccess, this is a nice little app to configure your mailbox, get a pleasant new icon, and if you are using a self-signed, unrecognized SSL certificate, it even bypasses the nagging question about whether you wish to continue. You can also optionally saving your user name and password. This app has been tested with GroupWise 7 and GroupWise 8.
If you are using GroupWise 7, you should check the option in the settings about forcing mobile view – otherwise you have to scroll down and check that you want to use simple templates when you login. Of course, GroupWise 7 WebAccess isn’t as well optimized itself for the iPhone as GroupWise 8 is. The icons in GroupWise 7 are very small, and with or without this app you usually have to resize things once you login to get a better view of the main WebAccess Page. Daniel is working on ways to make the GroupWise 7 experience a bit better through his app as well!
Daniel says he’ll be watching for blog comments and checking the sales to see if there is an interest and market for more GroupWise related iPhone software.
This app is priced at a modest $0.99 US, and benefits a very nice former Novell employee – so go to the APP STORE AND BUY IT!! 🙂
(Oh, the app is called “GW Web” if that app store link above doesn’t work.)
