Increase your productivity with Android 7.0 Nougat and the multi-window view

Doodle apps are always kept up-to-date! Before the official release of the Android 7.0 Nougat, we’ve been working really hard to support all the major features within our Doodle Android app.

One of these features is the ability to run more than one app at a time on screen. After the multi-window view is activated, you can switch back and forth between different apps without even closing Doodle. The user interface adjusts automatically to the screen size and shows as much content as possible. To activate this new feature, long-press the Recent Apps key with an app already open.

This is useful, for example, if you are in your Doodle poll and want to take a quick look at the event location to view nearby restaurants/undergrounds. You could also check the travel time from your position to the venue. Furthermore, you can even keep the poll open while you chat with your poll participants about the public transit schedule. Or why not watch a music video at the same time?

Go to this website to read everything about the newest Android 7.0 functions in detail.

We proudly present: our new Doodle iMessage App for iOS 10

Scheduling a meeting or activity with a group of people can involve a lot of back-and-forth communication that ends up complicating the planning process. With Doodle’s iMessage app, you just select some possible dates for an event and let the participants vote on which options work best for them. The app also includes templates, which make it easy to create a Doodle poll for specific time periods like this weekend or next week with just one tap. Once the results are in, you can see which time works best for everyone and confirm it.

No accounts are required, and you don’t even have to leave your iMessage conversation to plan and confirm an event! Users of iOS 10 can quickly install and use the app, and users of older versions of iOS can still participate and vote using the usual Doodle link.

How to stick to your ‘Get Fit’ New Year resolution

After overindulging over the Christmas period and enjoying one too many mince-pies, it’s traditional to turn our attention to New Year resolutions. “Get in shape” and “do more exercise” are ubiquitous New Year’s resolutions. Making fitness resolutions is the easy bit. How do you make them stick?

One of the most common excuses for why people break their workout intentions is “didn’t have time” or “too busy to train”. Yet, everyone in the world has the same number of hours in a week – 168.

Time management is super important for accomplishing any goal, and fitness is no exception. The key is finding time in your existing schedule. This is something Doodle can help with. You can use the free app to book in your fitness time around your other commitments, be it a short walk around the block or a high energy exercise class.

If your struggling for motivation, why not get your friends involved and find an exercise buddy? Research shows that exercising with someone helps you stick to your goals. What’s more Doodle can help you organise your workout schedule with your mates – just simply create a poll of the dates and times you can workout, send it to your fitness buddies and let them select which classes they can do. Once everyone has participated in the poll, Doodle works out which classes work best and notifies the organiser.

That’s your fitness timetable sorted! Now you have one less excuse not to stick to those heath and fitness resolutions.

Doodle for Android ― The Next Level

We started redesigning the Doodle Android App in March of this year. Our goal was to develop a truly native app that utilizes all possibilities to increase productivity as well as efficiency. Only by reaching that goal would we be able to meet the high standard that is associated with the Doodle brand.     

By working together with partners such as the Google team in London and by utilizing cutting-edge technology and principles, we are always striving to raise the bar in order to improve upon the functionality that’s provided by Doodle as a whole.

But what have we been doing during the past few months, and what’s next? Native applications offer great convenience and allow for more efficiency. In order to make use of that, our app must have all of the functionality that is provided by our website, which our users have become accustomed to over the years. A recent example of accomplishing that ambition is the integration of calendars, enabling you to see your plans at a glance while creating or participating in a poll. Push notifications have also been implemented in our app so you can always stay up to date.

Just recently, Google launched the newest Android version (6.0) called Marshmallow. In light of that, we have put in a lot of work to support its most important features, such as the permission system, from day one. As a result of our efforts, Google decided to feature us on the official list of Top Apps for Android Marshmallow. More details about the new features of the most recent Android update can be found here.

Thanks to the integration of Smart Lock, Doodle now offers an additional login option that is even easier, faster, and more secure than before since email addresses and passwords will now be able to be automatically synchronized across all of your devices. As soon as you install our app, Smart Lock will detect your credentials and offer you this new login. Detailed information on how this feature works can be retrieved from here.

What to expect next:

Nearby ― Invite participants who are in your immediate vicinity to your poll. Imagine a meeting where you want everyone present to be able to participate in a poll. Using Nearby, you can invite everyone with a single tap without needing to get their contact details. Thanks to the Doodle mobile app, everyone can now match their plans with the poll’s suggested options and make decisions much more efficiently.

Today is a big day for Doodle. We are very excited to announce the release of our completely redesigned and rebuilt Doodle App for iPhone, which is now much more powerful and easier to use.

Presenting the new Doodle iOS App

A totally new experience

Our previous iOS App was intended as a mobile companion for heavy Doodle users – something you used between accessing Doodle on your computers. Now that people are increasingly relying on mobile devices in addition to (or instead of) their computers, our old approach was not sufficient. We started from scratch by focusing on how our millions of users manage their time on the go. The result is a brand new experience for your iPhone that helps you to come to an agreement with a group of people – at any time and in any place – right from your mobile device. It’s available today and it’s free.

The power of Doodle at your fingertips

The new Doodle App has everything that people liked about the old version, but it also includes some new features which are wrapped in a fresh and improved easy-to-use interface. It’s compatible with iPhone 4s and newer, including iPhone 6 Plus.

Stay connected with powerful notification options

Need to clarify something? The built-in chat feature enables you to instantly chat with all of the participants. Push notifications will keep you informed about everything that’s going on.

Keep your contacts and appointments visible

Contact integration helps you to quickly invite all of the people that are important to you, and with the built-in calendar integration (for Premium users), scheduling conflicts are a thing of the past.

More on the way

Our mobile team is now a dedicated product and engineering team at Doodle, and we have an exciting mobile roadmap planned for you. Next up is the release of our iPad version and a major update to our Android App. But for now, visit the App Store and download our new iOS App for free!
