I agree. I live in the country and often lose my internet connection.Julia.
PS: Thanks for all your recent improvements. The app is becoming very user friendly.
Yes, this weekend I started thinking on a way to offer offline mode as soon as possible. But it won't come before a few months unfortunately. Publishing iphone and ipad apps are more important right now.
The app is quite expensive considering the fact that it does not offer offline possibility...
"Yes, the Android app will work offline (and the iphone app works offline already) but I have decided not to support offline for the web version as the percentage of people being offline while on their desktop computer is rather small in comparison to the effort it would take to make WeekPlan offline friendly."
I'm disappointed to see this. I think you may underestimate the number of people who fall into this situation. Anyone who travels regularly (many consultants, sales people, etc.) is generally offline while on planes, which is a perfect time to sit down and plan your next week, clean out your parking lot, enter followups from your last trip's meetings, etc.
Likewise, such people then spend time on customer sites where it is difficult to get Internet access in many cases, especially if only there for a short meeting. Being able to directly put todos into the tool would be much easier than having to jot them in Evernote or on a piece of paper and input them later. I don't carry a tablet with me when I travel, as it adds extra weight and things to get lost or broken, and while the phone app is fine for an occasional entry or lookup, it can't replace the desktop app for really working. Plus, my phone is turned off and in my briefcase during client meetings...I'm not going to pull it out to look things up or make entries in front of a customer. As long as this is the case, WeekPlan wouldn't be able to be my system of record for tasks, which is too bad as I really like what I'm seeing so far.
Is the Android App capable of working offline? I thought it was available, but when I tried in a Coffee House without internet today, it errored out on me. In order to go to the paid model, this is critical for me.
Ff you use our integration with Google Calendar, you can use any android app that works with Google Calendar that allows you to work offline.
i am also very disappointed to hear that there is no offline mode. google calendar integration is not the same as being able to c all the quadrants and available options in one glance. i was ready to pay the 84/year as this is the perfect app tor me but the lack of offline mode is a deal breaker for me. truly disappointed. to the Developer: keep up the great work! pls do let me know if the offline feature changes: firstname.lastname@example.org
When would you need offline mode? Do you live in the countryside?
Aymeric, I have a Tablet which I use as a work tool, and it has no 4G/LTE, only wi-fi connectivity. When I'm outside the office there is no possibility to use Week Plan. Even if it had 4G/LTE, I would have to purchase internet from the Telecom. So, to use Week Plan on my tablet when I'm not at the office, I would have to pay the subscription + internet. In the end it's financially unfeasible.
In my opinion, offline mode with auto sync when connected would be a great pro feature.
I also would prefer offline mode for the Android app. One example: I travel by train in Russia and the Internet connection on the cell phone is intermittent, so I would imagine this could be one case when I'd need the offline mode.
Hi there! For now, you will need an internet connection to use the Android application. No worries! We have noted this suggestion and our team's working to implement this feature soon!
