Mobile Documents: Building a better mousetrap

Mobile Documents promises to significantly improve the email experience on Symbian devices, tackling — among others — the challenge of working with large or multiple email attachments while on the road. I take a look at this new email application, which has just been released as an invitational beta, and ask if it is the better email “mousetrap”.

Read on in the full article.

Mobile Documents is currently available as a demo and invitational beta.
What is the difference between a demo and a beta ? Thanks.

Beta is the state of a software where it is nearly complete, but not fully finished. Hence it will have bugs in it, typically minor ones. Beta versions of software are usually released to the general public to test and gather feedback before the application is completed.

Demo versions are usually of fully developed and officially released (i.e. out of beta) applications and usually give a user an opportunity to try the application before they decide to purchase it. Demos can either be limited in certain functionalities as compared to the fully working app or be fully working but for a certain number of days only.

In this instant the demo means anyone can try out the app, but it is with a set of demo data / email (i.e. not yours). This lets you see how the app works, and see its advantages.

The beta has limited openings, but does allow you to use your own email address (anything with IMAP IIRC - e.g. Gamil).

Exclamation

Mobile documents beta is a good tool; been using it for about a week now... but there are some things which are required:
1. mark several option is needed while publishing docs.
2. Settings required ti define incoming mail sound(it is a general vibration/followed by sms ringtone"
3. need to use mass memory for downloads....(at least provide the ettings option)

more to come

I see this as a great tool for enterprise use; probably a bit overkill for some people and personal use - but still quite usable. I'm waiting through the download and install of the demo now, but can totally see this as an option for work-related items. My only question would be what the terms of service for Mobile Documents would be for enterprises. Ideally, you'd want to ensure some level of informational security while wanting the convenience/innovation that's given with the product.

Beta software is nearly complete, but not full finished. In every software testing is needed, in beta versions is released to the feedback before the application is completed. Demo version is fully developed.

Love your email client Peter. No attachment support from anywhere but archive makes it a huge fail though. hope you are addressing this in your next beta..

I am really pleased to see this application can support more than 1 email account, as so many others do not. The document features are also very good.
I have a couple of suggestions that I feel would help to improve usability:
1. The summary screen shows the number of unread mailbox items yet when opening the mailbox there is no indication which sub-folders contain unread items.
2. Unless I am missing it there does not appear to be any settings for email retention?
3. The ability to access and sync contacts, calendar items would be a real plus point
