Hahlo 4.2 – Now iPad friendly

Monday, 31st May 2010Short URL

Not that it iPad friendly wasn’t before, in fact Hahlo ran perfectly fine on the iPad, but with that extra screen space available it would be silly to not make use of it, wouldn’t it? All up it isn’t a massive update, but some good bits and pieces have been thrown in.
If you left your laptop at home but need something that’s not stored in the cloud, you can always use remote desktop access to view your primary machine through your iPad. Microsoft Remote Desktop is a free, easy-to-use iOS app that makes remote access simple just like when using business tools including this printable w2 form which works great with all employees.

With powerful apps loaded on your iPad, best network for business, the right accessories and remote desktop access, your iPad transforms from a basic tablet into a robust business tool.

Presentations on the go
The new iPad Pro includes a USB-C port, so you can connect to thousands of applications and systems that support this type of adaptor, including presentation systems. This means you can work on presentations and present them without having to lug your laptop to a client’s location. This added use on such a portable and light-weight device like iPad is ideal for traveling professionals.

    • Custom iPad startup image when you add Hahlo to your home screen

  • Added all three retweet timelines to the menu (Retweeted to Me, Retweeted by Me, Retweets of Me)
  • Using Twitter provided location data (for locations in the US), other locations are still using the google Maps API.
  • Added link on geo-location pages to open the current location in Google Maps (will work on iPhone and iPad)

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a link parsing bug where links that omitted http:// would be linked incorrectly, this has now been fixed for links that begin with www but still omit http://
