Sneak Peek: Flow for iPhone v2.0

By Luke on April 4, 2012

The Flow team has been hard at work on a new, completely re-imagined Flow iPhone app.  The upcoming Flow iPhone 2.0 app has been designed from the ground-up for speed, speed and more speed.  The result? Dramatically faster load times in every area, from task creation and editing to comment activity and beyond.

The 'new task' form below is the first in a series of teasers we'll be releasing as we go:

We're still testing it out internally at this stage, but we were too excited about it not to...

New to Flow: Public Search, Drag 'n Drop, and more...

By Luke on March 30, 2012

With Flow celebrating its first birthday last week, we thought it would be a good time to roll out a few new features and updates we've been working on…

New Public Search and Contact Requests

The new public search makes it possible to search the Flow userbase for contacts by name, making it much easier to find and add collaborators in Flow. Any contact requests sent this way will require the consent of the individual, of course, and if you'd rather not appear in public search results at all...

Happy Birthday, Flow!

By Luke on March 21, 2012

On March 21, 2011, we published a post announcing Flow for the first time, describing it as "the place where everything you need to get done comes together." Hard to believe it, but here we are, one year later. Flow's first birthday.

Since that launch, we've gotten a lot done, and more than a few things have come together. We've released a ton of features and updates, over 110,000 people have used Flow to work and collaborate, close to three million tasks have been created, and we've helped...

New to Flow: Inline Audio & Video

By Luke on March 20, 2012

Back in December, we rolled out a handy little feature that made it possible to attach image and audio files to your tasks directly from Flow's free iPhone app. Since then, we've been making recordings of everything from team meetings to on-the-fly brainstorming sessions, and it's been great.

Mostly.

The only thing is that until now, playing media files in the web app has meant opening a new window in your browser (it isn't inline, in other words). It's a small thing, and maybe you didn't...

Shared Tags Are Live

By Luke on March 14, 2012

We're happy to announce that after two weeks of polishing and perfecting by the Flow Team, Shared Tags are now live.

That means from now on, your collaborators can view any tags you add to a task just as they can other task details like due dates or followers, giving you a simple way to organize tasks that everyone on your team can follow and understand.

Since mentioning the switch two weeks ago, we heard from a few people with concerns that this change would have an effect on all permissions...

Testing in Progress

By Luke on March 8, 2012

Update: Flow Concierge was discontinued on November 1, 2012.

I haven't met too many people who would say no to a personal assistant. Even if it's just to find the nearest hardware store or make a quick appointment, how great would it be to have someone take care of all the little distractions? How much could you actually get done if they all just kind of went away?

It's something that's been on our minds a fair bit around here lately. We usually have a lot on the go and are always looking...

Flow Update: Shared Tags

By Luke on February 29, 2012

For those of you wanting a more flexible way to organize tasks with your collaborators, you'll have another option to choose from soon. Beginning Wednesday, March 14, all tags in Flow will be shared.

This means anyone who can view one of your tasks will also be able to see all of the tags you've created for that task (as well as for any other tasks in the same list) making it easier than ever for teams to organize tasks in a way everyone can understand.

Why Shared Tags?

With shared tags, you...

Flow Update: New Non-Flash Uploader

By Luke on February 17, 2012

If you've noticed you're spending less time than usual attaching and uploading files to Flow, there's a good reason for it. We've been hard at work on a new browser-native uploader that will speed things up and address a few issues the old Flash-based uploader was causing, and it's just been released this week.

Although Flash was once a commonly used plugin, it's earned a less-than-stellar reputation in recent years as a bug-prone resource hog, especially compared to some of the other options...
