Work on Xero’s free iPhone app is nearing an end as employees begin testing the mobile accounting app.
In a tiny Twitter update, the company said that ("fingers crossed”) Xero Touch will be available to download by the end of March.
Xero Touch was recently demoed at the company’s Xero Conference in February.
You can find out more about the app here but below is a list of questions Xero knows you’ll want answering.
- The apps will be free
- We will also be releasing a web-delivered version of the app for those not wanting to use the app store (though functionality will be reduced so we wouldn’t encourage this)
- m.xero.com will continue to be supported for lower-level devices (unfortunately lower-level includes Windows Phone 7 at this stage – the phone is pretty great but the browser is crap)
- Even though this mobile app will scale well on an iPad, we are currently NOT working on a specific iPad version. Currently the "normal” version of Xero works pretty well on an iPad but we’re hoping to improve the usability of all our applications for touch-based tablet devices (which may include tablet specific features)
- You won’t have to apply to be in the beta – we’ll release it to everyone as soon as it’s ready but expect some rough edges
