A couple of weeks ago I traded in my iPhone for a new Mango based Windows Phone 7. For those of you that haven’t tried WP7, I would strongly suggest you do. In addition to being able to view your favourite EPM software through the mobile browser, the whole platform and experience seems vastly superior to the Apple offering.
Whilst the WP7 marketplace has a wide variety of application that is growing on a daily basis, it is a little light on Project related applications. So inspired by the fantastic Project Server and SharePoint iPhone app by Giles Hamson, I thought I would have a go at doing something myself, so I am pleased to introduce Project Social.
What is it?
Project Social is a social viewer application that aggregates MS Project related Twitter and RSS feeds from the official MS Twitter accounts and blogs, a number of community blogs and the Project Server Technet content feeds all into one convenient application. Each item can be read directly on the phone where you can interact socially with it by via twitter (tweets, replies or retweets) email or directly via the browser. The application is based on the excellent Codeplex Social Viewer template which is constantly being updated, so watch out for some exciting new updates in the future.
Where can I get it?
Project Social is available now as a free download from the Windows Phone Marketplace or by clicking on the image below.
