We have just made three improvements to the Insightly mobile web application, which you can use by navigating to http://m.insight.ly in the browser of any Android phone, iPhone, iPad, or Blackberry Torch.
Search As You Type for Contacts and Organizations
We have added the ability to search your contact and organization lists in real time. A new search box is presented at the top of both the contact and organization list, and as you start typing into the list, we will present the matches to your search in the list below. This makes it much easier to find contacts and access their details quickly.
Pagination of Contact and Organization Lists
Insightly mobile will now break up long contact and organization lists into pages of fifty records, so pages load faster and the client is more responsive. Get to the next page by clicking the arrow or page number at the bottom of the list as shown below in red.
Adding Insightly Mobile to the home screen of your Android Phone
Insightly can be added to the home screen of your Android phone for easy access. Just navigatoe to Insightly Mobile at http://m.insight.ly and bookmark the page in Browser or Chrome. Then open your bookmarks and long tap the Insightly bookmark you just saved, and choose the 'Add To Home' option to add Insightly to your home screen. Screenshots are shown below for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) but other versions are very similar.
Add Insightly Mobile to the home screen of your iPhone or iPad
Insightly can now be added to the home screen of your iPhone or iPad, and when it loads the browser toolbars will be shown, so you have more screen area to use Insightly. Just tap the shortcut icon in the center of the bottom toolbar in Safari, and then choose the "Add to Home Screen" option from the popup menu. Insightly will be added to your iPhone or iPad home screen for easy access.
