Citrix Convoi iOS app combines text with audio conferencing
Citrix's text with audio conferencing app, Convoi, was released this week -- offering secure group text and voice communication for iOS. Users can execute free team chat and call service, facilitating interactions without the need to share one's phone number. Originally released as GoTogether last month, the app was pulled for a revision to its audio quality. Now renamed, Convoi has improved its audio, and added a real-time audio quality connection icon, so users can be aware of their own and their group members' connection status.
Convoi's new release includes the ability to add team members from one's Contacts. All team calls can be observed from the My Teams view. Available for free, Convoi requires iOS 7.0 or later.
TomTom's MySports mobile app available
TomTom has announced the availability of its MySports mobile app for iOS. As was reported prior to its official launch, the app connects to TomTom Runner and Multi-Sport GPS watches to upload key performance information. TomTom MySports documents distance, time, and calories using Bluetooth Smart technology. The app automatically downloads the latest QuickGPSFix satellite data, and activity history is instantly uploaded to community platforms if desired, such as TomTom Mysports, RunKeeper and MapMyFitness.
The TomTom MySports mobile app is free to download, and is available for iOS devices that run iOS 6 or later. An Android version will be released in the future.
